The smallest of the collection is the Klipsch Bar 40 which is also available as the Klipsch Bar 40G. That model packs in the Google Assistant and WiFi. The Klipsch Bar 48W offers a slightly bigger footprint, but also compatibility with Assistant, Alexa, AirPlay2, and it even features DTS Virtual:X surround sound. Finally, the Klipsch Bar 54A also adds Dolby Atmos and discrete elevation drivers.
Pricing for these soundbars ranges from $299 all the way up to $1,599, but the company hasn’t provided specifics on which models land at what price points. All models can also be purchased with or without subwoofers with availability kicking off this spring.
Klipsch is also expanding its wireless speaker lineup with Google Assistant. The Three with Google Assistant built-in was announced in 2018, but at CES 2019 the company is giving it an update with new finish options and more.
