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.
Consider your space
When planning to add an audio system to a room, consider how sound travels through the space. Different surfaces reflected and absorb sound differently. For example, hardwood floors and low ceilings will reverberate sound more readily than high ceilings and carpet.
Select the Type of Home Audio System
|Types of Home Audio||SoundBars||Home Theatre System|
|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.
