Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating! Should've kept my Technics speakers The sound is good, when the subwoofer works, However, the subwoofer won't stay paired with the soundbar, so it's like listening to sound from a tin can. Shouldn't have to attempt to connect/re-pair the subwoofer every time I watch TV. The re-pairing steps don't work, so I was having to unplug the electric supply and reset the entire system every time. Support wasn't able to fix the problem, so they are shipping me a new soundbar and subwoofer. Until this rectifies the problem, I would not recommend this problem. Wish I had just kept my Onkyo receiver and old Technics stero speakers. Never had any problems with them and the sound was excellent and powerful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing sound Great clarity and bass. My kids use it for Just Dance and other Ps4 games as well as TV and movies. Uses HDMI or optical to connect to TV. I love the readout on the bar itself. I keep having audio sync issues though. The sound is behind the mouth moving. I must enable and disable my TV sound sync to fix it. It's either a software issue or the bar is fighting with my LG 4K TV sync since both the bar and the TV have sync options. Bottom line though is that it sounds really really good and hearing surround from a bar under the TV is really a trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible sound from a little package!! Fantastic sound out of a little package! This kit is a straight plug-n-play setup and took me about 10 minutes maybe less to install. The sound bar interacts with your TV's volume controls so you don't' have to used 2 remotes plus with the duel HTMI inserts and the Fiber opt input you're golden. Also I love the Bluetooth setup.. my phone auto connects from the car to the house so I don't miss a beat! Hands down the best bang for your buck if you're on a budget or if you just want that Movie theater feel from you couch. Another Great product from JBL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sound bar I’ve owned I’ve owned and used the JBL 2.1 sound bar for almost 3 months now and use it daily. I have various sound bars and home theater systems on all 5 of my tv’s. The JBL 2.1 is now on my main tv. Just plugged it in and it worked no complicated setup. Sound is great with adjustable bass levels and highs and mids that deliver clear dialogue. Nice and loud when you want it to be for those action movies. But can also be used for daily tv watching at normal levels. I also like that it turns on and off with the tv and there is no annoying indicator light that other bars have on all the time.

Product Q&A

The soundbar is great with music! But!! When watching a movie it&rsquo;s very bad, crackling &amp; popping sounds.. very disturbing.. at any volume music works great.&nbsp;

Asked by: Blaise
I also have the same problem. I disable the surround mode and it help a little but every turn off the settings reset. Really hope they will fix it. For now i prefer the audio from the tv. This sound bar is feeling like waste of money for now.... but hope they will fix the problems and our ability to control the system

Will there be an update for an extra sound mode? A movie or tv mode would be nice. Voice and dialogue are too low, and sound effects are too high during movie or tv.

Asked by: Daniel87
Agree - tough to hear dialogue unless you crank up the volume, but then the effects are too loud. A movie mode would be helpful

Can you add an extra woofer to it&nbsp;

Asked by: Julio v
You can't add extra speakers/subwoofers to this system since it uses a unique frequency to connect the soundbar to the subwoofer.

I just recieved my 2.1 deep bass. I hooked it up with an optical cable and with hdmi cable. The sound bar does turn on but no sound. The base module does not make a sound either. The system is dead except for the tv led or standby when you turn on or off.
