The James Loudspeaker 2.1 Format L/R/SUB sound bars produce left and right-channel audio as well as bass energy from a center-mounted built-in subwoofer. These L/R/SUB format sound bars, which can be customized to match nearly any flat-panel display, are ideal for bringing clarity and full-range sound to applications where an external subwoofer is impractical.

The James Loudspeaker L/R/SUB sound bars are ideally suited for boardrooms, conference rooms, lobbies, retail showrooms and nightclubs, as well as residential applications such as bedrooms or other zones where a flat-panel TV is present but surround sound is not required. Currently available in the company’s SPL5 and SPL6 Series sound bars, the L/R/SUB versions offer high-output, superb clarity and bass extension below 60Hz from nearly any size form factor. The 2.1 configuration of the L/R/SUB sound bars make them a perfect match to the James Loudspeaker A2.1 three-channel amplifier, which features onboard crossovers and independent controls for easy system calibration.

James Loudspeaker sound bars are built from elegant aircraft-grade aluminum for strength, sonic performance and durability when used for outdoor or marine applications. Each sound bar features proprietary aluminum cone woofers and either aluminum or beryllium dome quad tweeters for unsurpassed dispersion and musicality. All L/R/SUB sound bars can be custom fit and painted to match any display or décor. Each bar comes with a matching aluminum perforated grille. L/R/SUB sound bars can be mounted directly to any TV for a seamless presentation or wall-mounted using available brackets. Like all products from James Loudspeaker, L/R/SUB 2.1 sound bars are fully customizable to suit any commercial or residential application. For wall mounting, optional Z-brackets or U-brackets can be purchased separately. Blind through holes are incorporated into each bar for wall mounting.

For outdoor/marine applications, order the SPL5Q-LRSUB-M.

The James Loudspeaker SoundBar Experience


Professional Audio Video Engineering Uses James Loudspeaker products in Nashville Penthouse

Professional Audio Video Engineering (PAVE) in Nashville works with James Loudspeaker to outfit a luxury penthouse with 20 Small Aperture speakers, subwoofer and a 1.5" tall custom SoundBar.

"Our relationship with James Loudspeaker is an integral part of our business," says Stafford. "They don't know the word 'no.' At times I have actually told them that I wish they could train others."

"I can't tell you how many custom products I have done in the last 10 or 15 years with James," says Stafford. "Every time I throw something at them, they throw it back, and it outperforms what we really wanted. If other manufacturers could follow that pattern, I would be very happy."
