    JBL soundbar with sub

    I wanted something that sounded better than my tv speakers. I took out my surround system years ago because the kids grew up and no one was really using the system anymore. I was expecting this to be “nothing special” because it’s just a soundbar and a little sub, plus the price is pretty low so I figured I would hook it up and be mainly underwhelmed but hopeful it was at least better than the tv speakers. Well, things have come a long way. It sounds really good and even the bass was surprisingly decent. Does it sound like my old surround system? No. Is it better than I expected? Absolutely….anytime you can at least be happy with what you bought is huge for me. It actually made me wonder how much better can the more expensive ones really be? This one does a very good job for the price point. No complaints!!!

    I was looking for something that wouldn’t take up space and offered actual theater style sound. Honestly. Blown away at the sound quality. This soundbar offers theater performance sound at a great price!

    Great basic soundbar setup. Price was competitive, shipping was quick. Whats not to like? Great volume and easy connectivity with hdmi cable. If you don't want or need Atmos then this is a great choice.

    Bought an open box in excellent condition, which when delivered it was besides, the box being opened once. Works great and is easy to set up. My parents have the 5.1 system so i knew it was already good. Would definitely recommend. I like that i can controll the bass, sometimes i cant handle all that. And i like being able to hook my phone up to it and listen to my music

    Big Bass Small Package

    It has a smaller size subwoofer I was very impressed with how much bass actually comes out of it. That being said it is not going to give you professional level audio. It does sound very good but it's not going to give you entire house rumbling bass. It is definitely enough for my neighbors to text me to turn it down. The port is backfiring so I turned it around so that it doesn't fire onto their wall. But I was very impressed with the quality of sound. I would suggest doing this over their base model

    JBL 2.1 Cinema Soundbar with Subwoofer

    Let's just start off by saying this the perfect size for a small gaming set up or man cave/She-shed room. The speaker bar fits perfectly under a 65"TV. The included hardware that was included has screws and mounts to attach to the wall, but had already pre-ordered another mount that i used instead. The packaging comes with all the needed cables for power and an HDMI cable that you can connect in to the TV's HDMI/Arc Connector. The sound bar also has an optical connector that I chose to go with instead. The audio remote is super simple to use. All available inputs are listed on their own respective button. The speakers paired up to the Bluetooth on the phone quickly, and I was able to adjust between music and a podcast with the preset buttons on the remote. Even at low volume, the audio and voices were crystal clear. The subwoofer at first impressions was small, but my opinion was quickly corrected after setting the option to music and enjoying the room - filling sound. Overall, this set up is a hit in my home!
