Fluance-AB40-225x137.jpgFluance has announced a new soundbase called the AB40 that is now shipping. Like all soundbases, the AB40 is a one-box solution (no separate subwoofer) that combines dual 1-inch tweeters with four 3-inch woofers in a large, flat cabinet that can rest directly under your TV stand. The AB40 uses the company's 3D Sound technology to produce a wide soundstage, and it features Bluetooth with aptX. The AB40 is available through Fluance's website for $249.99.

From Fluance 
Fluance launches its new AB40 High Performance Soundbase. Using its vast knowledge and expertise in the home theater arena, Fluance has created the simple yet powerful AB40, which accomplishes a truly convincing surround sound effect without the need for multiple speakers, a subwoofer, amplifiers or wiring. With its Grammy Award-winning 3D Sound technology, the AB40 delivers an immersive and wide soundstage for an enveloping in-home cinema experience. 

Fluance's AB40 is the only soundbase on the market that boasts a commanding, room-shaking frequency as low as 30Hz without a down-firing subwoofer. Featuring Fluance's 3D Sound, which uses Grammy Award winning sound processing technology, the AB40 is able to accomplish a room-shaking bass performance without the need for a large woofer. Fluance's 3D Sound 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.

The AB40 High Performance Soundbase is available now for $249.99 at Fluance.com.
