Move over sound bar, here comes Creative’s X-Fi Sonic Carrier!

Move over sound bar, here comes Creative’s X-Fi Sonic Carrier!

Meet the new X-Fi Sonic Carrier - the sound bar killer.

At CES 2016, Creative has officially signalled its intentions to challenge several established home audio brands with the company’s first ever sound bar. Dubbed the X-Fi Sonic Carrier, this is a 15.2-speaker, high resolution audio system that also incorporates Dolby Atmos technology.

This high-end sound bar incorporates 10 aluminum cone mid-bass 2.75-inch divers and 5 wide dispersion 0.75-inch titanium dome super tweeters. The actual audio configuration is 11 front and side firing drivers with four upward firing drivers and up to two subwoofer channels (with one wireless subwoofer provided with the sound bar). So that’s an 11.2.4-channel (front.sub.height) system. In total, Creative claims you’ll get 800 watts RMS total audio power with the Sonic Carrier.

Not only does it sound imposing with its specifications, it also looks like no other sound bar in the market. Creative has targeted the X-Fi Sonic Carrier to fit in a high-end designer living space with avant-garde design that’s machined from a finely polished and anodized aluminum block.

As you can see, Creative is stepping into this arena with a bang and it’s doing so by going big and powerful. The entire X-Fi Sonic Carrier is 55 inches wide and its wide form factor matches 65-inch TVs or larger perfectly. That certainly bodes well since the 50-inch TVs are fast becoming the normal size for even small living rooms, so Creative is certainly targeting the right segment of buyers.
