Boston-based Next Level Acoustics has introduced a high-performance soundbar that can be customized to match TVs with screens starting at 70 inches and projection screens up to 200 inches (diagonal).The Fusion Theater Soundbar (starting at $2,499) is a formidable three-channel LCR design that at minimum mates six 5.5-inch carbon wool woofers with three 1-inch silk dome tweeters in an enclosure made of 0.75-inch MDF/Baltic birch and built to match a specific screen size.
Standard dimensions are 66 inches wide, 6.3 inches high, and 3.75 inches deep. The cabinet has tapered ends and features a “resonance-suppressing” butyl latex/silica sound deadening acoustic treatment on the inside. Other highlights include ClarityCap capacitors from England’s ESA, custom threaded inserts, and Next Level’s Z-Clip easy mount system.
Specs include a low-frequency limit of 44 Hz, sensitivity of 92 dB SPL (1 watt/1 meter), and maximum power handling of 350 watts.
Standard finish is high-gloss piano black but custom finishes are available.
Last year, Next Level introduced the Elite Series of soundbar enclosures that can be customized for soundbars up to 5.5 inches tall, 3.3 inches deep, and between 48 and 76 inches wide.
