Thanks for the reply. Yeah, actually I found out from another reply (different thread) that it comes with the "sound bar", I had totally forgotten about that! It was never connected, and last night I found it outside partially vertical. I can't remember where it was when it flooded, but appears to have gotten wet, maybe 1/3 of it. I sterilized it, hooked it up, and incredibly, that also works! Not only does it work, but I'm actually blown away at the sound quality. HTH they got bass out of this skinny thing is amazing, there must be some PR
's in it. I expected it to be cheap and tinny sounding, like a bad tweeter. It would seem Pioneer made a most robust TV in that Kuro line for both the TV and speakers to make it through a flood. Even if it powered up, and pseudo-worked, I was convinced there was no way the screen would still be perfect. Either the actual speaker drivers are poly, or they'll soon "fly apart" from the vibration, LoL.
This brings another issue though, I can't find any of the sound bar mounting hardware. No brackets, and the screws are metric so that's going to be almost as hard to find as the proprietary brackets. I don't see any P/N's for them in the manual, does anyone know please? I have to use it because that one single mini-bookshelf speaker I found when I tested the audio is all I have left. All of my speakers were lost (and since I was
in the business of speakers for a long time, that was A LOT
of them). So I'm going to need to mount the speaker bar. Thanks. (BTW, the speaker bar is a SMW2023-A
, I'm looking into mounting hardware now).
