Canton, Germany's largest and best selling manufacturer of loudspeakers, has announced immediate shipment of its Sound Bar CD 90 SB, a loudspeaker system that comprises three individually isolated two-way speakers that share a single enclosure designed for horizontal mounting above or below a flat-screen TV.

The CD 90 SB joins Canton's CD family of compact extruded aluminum speakers that are available in silver or black finish. According to the company, the Sound Bar's configuration of three speakers in one chassis delivers the home theater soundstage that would normally be produced by separate left, right and center speakers but with simplified installation, and an aesthetic to match today's flat panel video displays.

"We expect the Sound Bar to be an important addition to the Canton line-up," said Paul Madsen, President of Canton USA. "It delivers excellent sound reproduction in an attractive, low-profile housing that is a perfect complement to flat panel displays. It is a perfect match for our popular CD family of speakers, making it simple to expand the system to accommodate any size system and theater environment."

The Canton CD 90 SB's left and right speaker channels each consist of a 1/2-inch aluminum dome tweeter, 3-inch aluminum woofer, and a 3.9-kHz crossover network in acoustically isolated segments of the enclosure. The center channel section employs two of the same aluminum woofers flanking a single tweeter. All three channels deliver a frequency response of 80 Hz to 25 kHz.

Like all the Canton CD speakers, the CD 90 SB is magnetically shielded. It is 39.9 inches long, 3-1/2 inches high, just under 4-inches in depth, and it includes wall-mounting brackets. Like all Canton CD-series speakers, it is finished in silver or black brushed aluminum with perforated metal grills. It can be matched with any of Canton's AS line of active subwoofers and compact CD 10 speakers for a complete surround home theater system.

The Canton CD 90 SB LCR speaker system will be available from Canton dealers in September with a suggested retail price of $650.
