TruAudio today unveiled an all new 42 inch SLIM 300 sound bar featuring the largest, most powerful drivers in its class, housed in a radically thin 2.2 inch depth, 100% extruded aluminum enclosure with a revolutionary mounting bracket that speeds installation.
"The thinnest flat screen, when mounted, sticks out from the wall about 1 to 2 inches. Our SLIM sound bar is so thin that it will match up perfectly with the flattest flat screens on the market," states Kary Wawrzyniak, Vice President of Technical Development.
To achieve that thinness, TruAudio used an aluminum extrusion process that gives the SLIM sound bar an excellent surface finish while making it very durable. The SLIM has a sharp, classic look with a skin that is brushed aluminum black. The SLIM also sports a recessed grill for clean and elegant lines. And at 2.2 inches, the SLIM is the thinnest sound bar available on the market.
To bring out the sound in a sound bar this thin, TruAudio started from the ground up and engineered specifically for the SLIM:
- A solid, one-piece housing allows SLIM to maximize air volume and rigidity to achieve a full range of sound.
- The three tweeters are 1" aluminum - not silk - with sophisticated crossover on the metal housing to give them a softer, warmer sound.
- All six 3½" woofers are active - there are no passive woofers for needless show or added expense. Made from glass fiber - not poly - for greater output, the rigid, long-throw cones and ported motor assemblies allow the drivers to deliver good separation and rich, full sound.
Since TruAudio was started by installers - and most of their engineers and salespeople are installers - they know the less time spent installing, the more money installers make. So, they've engineered the SLIM to help the installer make more money.
Most wall mounts are complicated with multiple parts and multiple installation steps. The SLIM wall mount is just one piece. According to Wawrzyniak, all installers have to do is decide where they want the SLIM mounted. Level and screw in the wall mount. Then, the SLIM has a special track on the back of the sound bar that allows installers to simply hang the SLIM onto the wall mount with zero-gap.
"It takes just two minutes to get the SLIM hung and looking fabulous under the TV - and you can move on to your next job," says Wawrzyniak. TruAudio feels the 2.2 inch SLIM sound bar will be an installer's new moneymaker.
The 2.2 inch SLIM Series speakers are available through authorized TruAudio dealers. The SLIM comes in the 300-G SLIM LCR Sound Bar with 3.25" glass fiber woofers, 1" aluminum dome tweeters and the 100-G SLIM LCR Speaker with 3.25" glass fiber woofers, 1" aluminum dome tweeters. SLIM-STAND for surface mounting is also available and sold separately.
