    I bought this for two reasons.... first because I wanted a soundbar that actually had a Subwoofer big enough for that truly deep theater bass. Second, it had ARC capability to hook up my PS4 and any other item into it and not have to manually switch HDMI cords. The bass is earth shattering. I have a 12 inch Paradigm reference subwoofer that it is nearly as good as. Also, the ability to turn the woofer down on the controller is great! The soundbar itself is plenty clear. I don't really hear the lack of Mids that other reviews mention. Voices are clear and the tweeters are crisp. The "surround" sound isnt very effective.... but that being said, you dont buy a soundbar to get surround sound. Definitely wins verses much more expensive sound bars.

    I bought my first JBL sound bar system about 18 months ago and was hooked immediately. Easy to set up, simple to operate, and nice features on the remote. The reason I am writing this review is to emphasize that this is my 2nd JBL 3.1 sound bar system after thinking I was upgrading to the newer and supposedly better JBL 5.1 sound bar. After speaking with a Best Buy salesman, who was extremely nice, he said without a question the 5.1 was a better system. NOT EVEN CLOSE. There is no way he had heard the 5.1 yet, and I simply went on his advice. I returned the 5.1 the very next day and got my 2nd JBL 3.1 system. This 3.1 system is the way to go if you’re a JBL fan. Don’t even think about the JBL 5.1, at least in my opinion. More on that in my 5.1 review.

    This unit has the most astounding, room shaking bass I think I’ve heard from a consumer speaker. I have the wireless bass setup near the TV. Even across the room, the thing will walk a glass right off a table! I prefer a good bass response, as long as the kids and hi’s are bright. I specifically wanted a 3.1, because it has a midrange speaker. The mid is a bit more muted than I would like. I turn the base down, just a bit, to enable the voices to come out more. The bar is 40”, which is the same width as my 50” TV. It can be mounted to the wall. The bass unit is quite large. It’s almost the size of an end table. It is wireless and can be placed anywhere, within range of an outlet. The remote allows quite a bit of adjustment to the sound profile. I have managed to get just about the sound I want. There is also a “night mode” which reduces the bass response quite a bit. This unit retails at $499 and it sounds almost as good as units at over double the cost. The only thing it lacks is Dolby Atmos. It does have the older Dolby Digital sound. I definitely recommend this bar if you like big explosions or big bass music. You won’t be disappointed.

    Best sound I've ever had. What a powerful little system. Friends always ask about it. I get tons of compliments. The remote is easy, and it quickly connects to my TV and works seamlessly with my TV remote as well. The sub connects wirelessly regardless of how many times I unplug it and move it around. The input button on top of the sound bar makes it easy to switch to bluetooth to play music from my phone. I had some issues with install and connection at first. I had to call JBL and it turned out to be user error. They were calm and helpful and talked me through the whole thing.

    I purchased this sound bar about two years ago and have been really satisfied with its quality. It was extremely easy to setup and connect with my TV. The subwoofer provides good bass, though I have just started to notice that it easily picks up interference from nearby electronics. Overall, great product and value.

    Great Sound for the Price

    |
    Posted .

    I choose this bar over the new Polk 3.1 because I think for 3.1 soundbar systems in this price range with ARC capabilities, I'm not sure the sound gets any better. Listened to a variety of music and it performed well top to bottom. Watched the lightsaber battle towards the end of the Force Awakens, and I was blow away by the sound. It lead that scene more than the visuals did for me. Now, considering I decided on this one and like it, the reason why I didn't give it 5 Stars is for few minor reasons. The sound will more or less 'turn off' if no signal is coming through. For example, scrolling through my Xbox home scene slowly doesn't admit any sound because it's random spaced sound signals instead of a blank signal with bleeps of noise. Doesn't really bother me, but it does some off without it. With my TV remote, the sound will not increase by more than 10 if I hold down the volume up. I think it is to prevent the system from accidentally overload, but again odd. My google home can't set the volume on it. It can only go up/down one sound point instead of setting a number which is quite annoying since I can change my TV to any number I want. I think this is because the volume is 0-50 scale on the soundbar and not 0-100, but I can't verify that. I found the packaging to be lacking in ease and I didn't see any guide on the system itself that explains in detail what it was or how to use it. It's mostly common sense with soundbars, but I always like to read the guide because sometimes you learn something neat that you can use. I do feel like the looks are a little lacking compared to a lot of the other soundbar companies, but it is a soundbar not a lookbar. So for sound at a 3.1 level, I'm not sure it can be beat. If I had some advice for JBL, I would say to make the packaging experience better so it is a pleasant experience from purchase to install to use and not just use.

    I love it. I know people complain about no midrange sound. It's either clear tweeters or deep bass. That is true, but you don't really pay attention to it. Great for movies or entertainment. A bit pricey but I always like JBL Products.

    I don’t have the space for a full Sound-system so this is a great alternative for me. The 3.1 sound bar does sound very nice but my main concern was getting a decent subwoofer. The subwoofer is indeed highly responsive and sounds great. Most people would probably give this five stars but I don’t believe that any piece of gear is actually worth five stars as there is always “something”. I’d go 4.5 only because of small stuff such as the remote doesn’t seem to respond very well if you are off-axis with the front of the bar. Not a very big deal overall compared to the fit and function of this system. I set it up in under 30 minutes and broke it in with Guardians if the Galaxy 1&2 and it had nice clarity from the bar and good lows from the sub. It doesn’t compete with a 5.1 or 7.1/2 system but nobody should expect that anyway. For those lacking enough space for the whole sound system rack, this is a great alternative.

    JBL stuff is amazing! My car has a JBL system.and it sound phenomenal! Also got the wireless ear buds which are great as well figured I'd give this a try as the wattage on then sub impressed for the price and was far more than other systems in the similar price range. The bass is awesome! Consolidated from a 7 speaker (2 towers, center, book shelf and surrounds plus sub polk speakers / pioneer receiver system) to this bar and sub combo. Love the bass. Not as loud as the old system but sounds good enough. The bar is crisp. One down side to the old system was trying to find the sweet spot between hearing the voices and hearing the lows for music / sound effects etc. No messing around with this system. Vocals are clear and bass is there when needed with just factory settings. Connected to my samsung TV no problem and the wireless sub is perfectly in sync. Occassionally with netflix or disney plus I'll hear a flapping noise periodically but only occurs with those apps. Nothing else. Very please for a sub $300 system.

    This is by far the Best sounding bar 3.1 - 10” Bass Kicks you Hard in da face! I have had 2 other 100w bars and they always lacked power and Bass. But this JBL makes movies sound like their are 5 speakers I swear it sounds like speakers behind you, I don’t know how they do it. I switch over to Amazon music and this system really shines! The Bass shaakes the whole house like the band was live in your living room. Incredible fidelity! Worth every penny! You won’t be sorry if you like Heavy Bass w volume when watching movies or concerts! Everything else has been under powered for me, 450w is more like 100w used to be in 70s. So I was always disappointed w power and Bass output. JBL has perfected the way we hear 4K UHD movies and sound, and have the reputation to back this up.

    I heard them in store then decided to buy the 3.1 because it focused more on the AUDIO aspect of whatever is playing. I had a 5.1 SAMSUNG unit before and was disappointed in its performance when it came to the center speaker (audio). Just couldn't hear the words very good anymore. But this 3.1 by JBL is ABSOLUTELY wonderful, what a turn around. The BASS is most impressive (even has a subwoofer volume control) and i can hear everything said in movies that i play. Wireless is also a plus so for the money it's well worth it! I am VERY happy with this unit.

    Overall great sound. Only downside is when the sound is being transmitted to the bass box, every now and then there's a subtle bass surge, similar to what a 3.5mm audio plug sounds like when making contact to an outlet just before plugging it in. All of the speakers' optimal performance us when watching a movie or show at a higher volume. For whatever reason, there are some shows on a random provider that when played at minimal volume, the bass box is seldom heard.

    My kitchen shares the same wall as my living room. I can feel the bass from there If I want to. I watch more movies because I have this. I absolutely love it. We watched all the Iron Man’s. I love feeling the movie. For the last few years I had an LG with a 4in sub. Or something like that. Man this thing is like having 3 of those. The clarity from the sound bar is even largely noticeable. The bass is clear and crisp vs the older smaller one. I highly suggest this! Especially if you like to feel your dinosaurs walk/ roar, or your iron man shoot his beams from his hands, or feel the power in a gun shot during a war movie. It gave me more than I could have hoped for!

    I really love this soundbar it’s amazing. I have three of these systems. One in my living room and two in bedrooms. They definitely make the rooms shake with the subwoofer. I would recommend for a large room

    I received this about two weeks ago, and I cannot lie, set up was a little difficult for me. Once I finally got all the cords in place, and turned the sound up to 18 (which looking back that is hardly loud at all), the sound coming out of it did not sound as good as I had expected. I went back into the store since I thought the instructions wanted an optical cord, bought one, and then realized that the cord didn't fit into either the speaker or the TV. I was just about ready to give up when I turned up the volume a little more, and after it reached 20, the quality started showing. Now that I am over my embarrassment, I have gotten to see how nice of a speaker system this is. The only problem is that since I keep my TV volume so low, I am not able to experience how great of a speaker this is, every day. I think that if you are buying this system for a home theatre, this is perfect for you, but if you're buying this for an apartment/duplex/etc., you might not get to fully use the system

    For this cost tier I am satisfied. Highs and mids are clear and decent. Bass is very strong and solid. Setup is quite simple and took about 3 minutes. Remote is straight forward and intuitive. Used on a 75" Samsung in a large, high ceiling, open room.

    I bought this soundbar system in hopes of improving our ability to understand verbal dialog when watching our LG 65" TV. People's voices had taken a back seat to the excessively loud music and sound effects experienced when watching most broadcast TV programs. WOW what a difference! How enjoyable watching TV has become with this soundbar. Very nice surround sound; clear voices; plenty of bass from the subwoofer; a true theater experience while watching movies. Would reccomend this soundbar system, with the understanding the true audiophile may find something better.... but not at the same price.

    I purchased the JBL 3.1 after listening to 15 different soundbars. I wanted a soundbar that reproduced sound as intended, without that manufactured sound of which so many seem to suffer. I will be using this strictly for movies and TV, listening to music is not a primary function or concern. The 3 HDMI inputs are great as I wanted to keep the TV connections to a minimum. It also features an optical, analog and USB port as well as built in Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Setup was a breeze, wireless subwoofer sync was quick and easy, Bluetooth as well. Bass response is strong without being overpowering, you can adjust as needed. It comes with pre-programmed listening modes as well (standard/music/movie, etc). The difference is subtle at best. It comes with analog and HDMI cables. You'll need additional cables based upon how you plan on connecting. If your primary concern is TV and movies give this a listen.

    This unit is pretty much plug and play. Delivers great vocals and the subwoofer is POWERFUL. I love how it performs. Lots of good features, like bluetooth connection to listen to music/sound from a BT source like your phone.
