Setting up a Soundbar is very straightforward, but as with any hi-tech audio setup there is a lot to consider if you want to get the most out of your investment. Sure, you can just sling it in and hope for the best, but let’s face it, having shelled out some money you want your new system to ROCK!

A soundbar is a specially designed loudspeaker enclosure that creates a stereo effect from a single cabinet. They are much wider than they are tall. This is partly due to acoustical reasons and to get the convenience of being able to mount the speaker unit right above or below a display, usually flat panel TVs. Due to space constraints many HD TVs often have smaller speakers, leading to poor audio quality and intelligibility.
Even though soundbars are meant to be a single speaker solution, they are often packaged with a subwoofer. While some soundbars are capable of producing low end bass, many are not. Be sure to see whether or not a subwoofer is included with the budget soundbars system you buy. If there is no subwoofer, make sure that the model you are buying has the capability to play back bass in addition to mid and high range audio.
You can enjoy the soundbar speakers all alone or with family and friends without any unfamiliar faces sitting around you making noises. There is no tangled wire hassle or wires hanging against the wall, so it looks good and keeps clean. You can mount it up to a wall or place it right below/above your TV.
