Does anyone know of a decent soundbar that is 24 inches or less in width? I'd like to put it in the space where my current center channel resides. It seems most soundbars are 3 feet or more in width.

My tv & stereo system are in built in cabinets so I'm kind of limited with space. The main reason I'd like to switch to a soundbar is to simulate surround sound since it just isn't practical for conventional surround speakers in this room.

Thanks for the help.

Have you considered going to one of the 2.1 type systems that simulate surround sound? I know denon, bose and sony all make them (I'm sure a few others do also)
The denon S302 is a nice sounding system, not sure how well it would work with the speakers horizontal though.

I haven't. My current set up is a 5.1 system but no surround speakers. My goal was to get something that simulates the surround since rear speakers just won't happen in that room.

I was told sound bars do this. Is that the same thing as a 2.1?
