First off, it is 2. Beneath the grille, there are two drivers and dual 4-inch subwoofers delivering the audio, supported by passive radiators.
Dialogue intelligibility was good, though I did bump up the center channel output one notch in the SmartCast app to better balance the sound with the left and right front speakers. I will probably only use soundbars from now on these things sound amazing. Gadget Review, founded in 2005, believes in true and honest reviews that will help any consumer, savvy or not, make the right purchase. Around the back of the sound bar are the input terminals. It was clearly marked as to what it was so it was not much of a surprise when it was delivered. If you're like me, you'll settle on one volume and never really change it, so it's not a problem that I can't see a volume number.
This little bar has big sound! Can adjust Bass and treble via the remote. The surround speakers are miniature versions of the soundbar, with more of the black fabric material and side caps of silver plastic. I will be using this unit on my deck during the warmer months to stream music from my phone or tablet. However, at no time, and will it never affect our rankings or judgment of the product s in discussion or under evaluation. I would recommend this to a friend I did a ton of research on soundbars before deciding on this one. And living on a busy street, having a Vizio box sitting on your porch is just asking for it to be stolen. Good sound but it's a lot more money.
Does it sound like there's a massive subwoofer in there? I decided to buy the Vizio. Listen to all the reviews. Though you may save money by buying basic feature sets soundbars, they miss some important features like the ability to adjust the audio system bass and treble or having a bass booster. I knew this wouldn't deliver the rear sound the way a 5. I do have a couple of complaints. People who say they are disappointed by the lack of surround sound with this bar are either delusional or suckers, 2 speakers simply cannot deliver true surround sound.
Conclusions For the price, there's really nothing to get too worked up about here, except for the distortion that may occur at top volumes on some music tracks with seriously powerful sub-bass.

I watched a movie that had a particular scene I liked, so I recorded it on my phone to watch again later. I am impressed so far. I must admit, I'm going to have a difficult time justifying the cost of the Sonos Playbar + Sub for my bedroom after using this ridiculously inexpensive gem. Not only did it play louder without distortion, its mid-range performance was better, and the slim subwoofer was tighter sounding. Overall, I was impressed with how the system sounded, especially given its modest price point.
Everyone loves an early Christmas gift!! The bass is also great! Took less than 5 minutes to get it connected and working. I'm even happier that it was so easy to install! I would recommend this to a friend I purchased this for my bedroom. Beyond that it's the more expensive Klipsch, but then you're literally in another tier. The bass drums now had solid kick without being too bloated, at least down to around 40Hz. You can make your sound adjustments through the multi-function remote or the soundbar itself. Cons: Doesn't support the latest tech Dolby Atmos, Arc.
Again, weight was higher than I expected and the build quality felt as sturdy as the main sound bar. The sound including the wireless Sub Woofer is amazing. No crackle at high volume and the clarity is quite nice! Spotify, Pandora, and Amazon Music are some of the big names here, but there are tons of other apps that will work as well. I love finding affordable audio hardware that produces quality sound. So I started looking into soundbars for this purpose.
