It starts with sound

The 2i features six individual speakers – dual 1” tweeters, 2” midranges and 4” woofers – plus a pair of passive radiators for low-end authority. Each driver is in its own cabinet chamber, and digital crossover circuitry ensures precise frequency reproduction. The DirectDigital amp delivers 120 watts – tri-amplified, so each speaker earns its own 20 watts.

All set for video

The Pulse Soundbar 2i supports the most advanced HDMI audio connections – ARC and eARC – for a pristine multi-channel feed directly from advanced flat-panel sets and Blu-ray players.

Simply surrounded

Once you’ve got the Pulse Soundbar 2i, the BluOS Controller app (free download for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire), makes setup a snap. And you can configure an entire wireless Dolby Digital surround system simply by clicking and dragging sub and surrounds.

Two-way, top-quality Bluetooth

Bluetooth version 5.0 with aptX HD streams music directly from phones, portables, or tablets at better-than-CD quality and handles the latest generation of lossless files. Two-way Bluetooth means you can also listen privately via the wireless headset of your choice.
