Subwoofer

A subwoofer (or "sub") is a woofer, or a complete loudspeaker, which is dedicated to the reproduction of low-pitched audio frequencies known as bass. The typical frequency range for a subwoofer is about 20–200 Hz for consumer products, below 100 Hz for professional live sound, and below 80 Hz in THX-approved systems. Subwoofers are intended to augment the low frequency range of loudspeakers covering higher frequency bands.

Bluetooth version

Bluetooth, standardized as IEEE 802.15.1, is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short-wavelength radio transmissions in the ISM band from 2400–2480 MHz) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security. Created by telecom vendor Ericsson in 1994, it was originally conceived as a wireless alternative to RS-232 data cables. It can connect several devices, overcoming problems of synchronization.

Edition 03/2017 - Rundum-Klang aus 18 Lautsprechern ? dieser Satz wirkt beeindruckend, aber angesichts der Vorstellung von einer Flut aus Lautsprechern auch irgendwie unpraktisch. Tatsächlich sind alle Lautsprecher des Philips-System in die Soundbar integriert, die dabei nicht einmal 5 cm in der Höhe misst. So viel Technik in so wenig Gerät ist beeindruckend. Ein Subwoofer ist ebenfalls im Paket dabei und dank der drahtlosen Ansteuerung ebenfalls höchst flexibel. Der Klang ist hervorragend abgestimmt und erfreut auf ganzer Linie. Große Schwächen sucht man hier vergeblich. Die Ausstattung erscheint auf den ersten Blick ebenfalls gelungen, so wird etwa das Ansteuern via Bluetooth bzw. NFC inklusive AAC und aptX unterstützt. HDR oder HDCP 2.2 sind allerdings nicht dabei, zudem sind die HDMI-Anschlüsse nur vom 1.4er-Standard, wodurch sich 4K-Inhalte nicht in 60 Hertz abspielen lassen. An der Zukunftsfähigkeit hapert es also etwas.

Edition 02/2017- Die Soundbar von Philips ist unglaublich clever. Das Gerät kann nämlich den Klang eines ganzen 5.1.2-Systems in einer einzigen, kompakten Lautsprecherleiste (plus kabellosem Subwoofer) vereinen. Trotzdem büßt man hinsichtlich der Klangqualität und des Surroundeffekts kaum etwas ein. Wer sein Wohnzimmer unkompliziert mit Heimkinosound bereichern möchte, findet hier eine extrem praktische Lösung. Extrapunkte gibt es für die Kompatibilität mit Dolby Atmos, was eine hohe Zukunftssicherheit gewährleistet.more

Edition 02/2017- Atmosphärischer Surroundsound benötigt ein teures und großes Heimkinosystem? Nicht zwangsläufig! Die Philips Fidelio B8 Soundbar zeigt eine interessante Alternative auf und liefert einen erstaunlich voluminösen Klang, der echtes Kinofeeling vermitteln kann. Die Vorteile, die sich aus der Zusammenführung der Funktionalität eines gesamten 5.1-Systems in einer kompakten Soundbar ergeben, dürften wohl auf der Hand liegen. Wer vor allem auf maximalen Komfort und Flexibilität erpicht ist, dabei aber keine großen Kompromisse in puncto Soundqualität eingehen möchte, liegt hier genau richtig.more

Ambisound B8 (Soundbar with subwoofer, 400W, Silver)

Toller Sound für das Wohnzimmer

Ich bin von diesem Produkt überwältigt. Der Sound ist 1A. Die HDMI ARC Verbindung funktioniert sehr zuverlässig. Bis jetzt keine Probleme damit. Als Vergleich hatte ich die SONOS Soundbar und die Denon HEOS Home Cinema. Der Sound ist um Meilen besser.
