One of the most unique product lines available to custom installers is Metra Home Theater Group‘s Audio Mount Sound Bars.

Adding to this line of products, the Holly Hill, Fla.-based manufacturer has announced the latest Audio Mount Soundbar solution: the 3.1 Audio Mount Sound Bar. According to Metra, it is designed to accommodate larger flat-panel TVs, while maintaining the same sonic standards as its other Audio Mount Sound Bar products.

“TVs have gotten larger and customers like to mount TVs with quality sound,” says Jessy Crabb, general manager of Metra Home Theater Group. “Metra Home Theater Group has combined these two components. With this 3.1 Sound Bar one can mount the larger TVs and improve the sound quality [of their TV installs].”

Some of the features built into the 3.1 Audio Mount Sound Bar include Dolby Digital audio decoding, a built-in subwoofer, a choice of connection options, and a 160-watt Class D amplifier to drive the multi-speaker array.

Metra adds the Audio Mount Sound Bar line of products is part of the company’s Audio Solutions series of products that now includes a choice of cables, power management/protection, and other accessories.
