LG SoundPlate Puts the Sound Under Your TV

by Paul Strauss

While there are plenty of soundbars available for improving the sound of your home theater, most of them have to sit in front of your TV set or hang above or below it on the wall. The LG SoundPlate takes a different approach, by sitting underneath your flat screen TV’s base.

The latest generation of the SoundPlate, the LAB540W measures just 1.56-inches-tall, and can handle TVs measuring from 32 to 55 inches on top of it – though LG hasn’t announced a weight limit yet. This design allows the speaker to have a much deeper enclosure for improved sound, plus it provides an integrated 3D compatible Blu-ray player and amplifier, which makes for a much cleaner look than if you had a standalone Blu-ray player and a home theater receiver.

The all-in-one system offers a total of 320 watts, and is a “4.1” system despite having no rear speakers – so I imagine that it offers some kind of virtual surround tech. For room-filling bass, it uses a wireless subwoofer.

There’s no word yet on pricing or a release date for the LAB540W SoundPlate.
