Fluance Introduces Affordable AB40 SoundBase

Fluance AB40 SoundBase

Fluance just introduced the AB40 High Performance Soundbase. The $250 under-the-TV-speaker is deeper than a standard soundbar, because it includes a downward firing subwoofer. The company says you’ll get room-shaking bass as low as 30Hz with an immersive and wide soundstage for an enveloping in-home cinema experience.

Fluance implemented 3D Sound technology that uses bass boost and psychoacoustics to calculate precise harmonics that are related to the fundamental tones of sound, virtually reproducing the lowest frequencies, just as if there was a subwoofer in the room. The result is a clean, deep bass performance you would expect from a full home theater system.

 

Fluance took its in-depth audio knowledge from years of home theater speaker engineering and used it to produce the high performance AB40 High Performance Soundbase. It features dual 1” high performance tweeters and four 3” aluminum lightweight, rigid drivers that produce cleaner vocals and dialogue at any volume for captivating, brilliant clarity; two of the drivers are positioned on opposing sides of the cabinet angled at 35 degrees to provide widespread sound throughout the entire room, allowing for every sound effect to be heard no matter where the listener sits in the room; and a 120W amplifier. In addition, the AB40 also has Bluetooth AptX technology to allow users to stream music wirelessly from any streaming source, such as Pandora, Spotify or iTunes.

The Fluance AB40 has been engineered with an acoustically tuned, MDF wood cabinet that produces a warm, more natural sound. The cabinet design allows for proper air flow so the drivers can perform at the highest level.

Price and Availability
The Fluance AB40 High Performance Soundbase is available now for $249.99 at Amazon or Fluance.com.
