So what is soundbar?


Is a Soundbar or Home Theatre System right for your home? Here's a quick guide to enjoying tip-top sound quality for your home entertainment.

Features A soundbar, also known as a speakerbar, is a wide and thin speaker that houses multiple drivers that is usually more than what most modern LED TVs have. It improves the audio without the hassle and clutter of using a 5.1ch surround sound cinema system. A home theater system has 2 to 7 speakers including a center channel for voices, 2 front speakers that will serve as your stereo speakers, 2 rear speakers that help with surround sound effect and a Subwoofer to give extra bass.

Active or Passive soundbars

Passive soundbars are not as readily available as their active counterparts nowadays, and act more like conventional speakers and require a receiver that has to be purchased separately, which acts as a central system for your entire audio/video system.

Active soundbars, have built-in amplifiers and only needs to be connected to your TV. It’s a perfect union of convenience and quality! Advanced models may also feature surround sound processing all with just one soundbar.
