    Problems with subwoofer

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    The subwoofer was going in and out but my bf just figured it was an interference issue because it was next to the wifi box and too close to the sound bar. We put it in the floor and it hasn’t messed up since. But it’s not aesthetically pleasing to me. I rather it sit on top of my entertainment center with no issues.

    This is a great soundbar to pair with any LG television. I have mine paired with my 75 Nano 90, and the sound is amazing. You're not going to throw a concert with this but it would definitely fill a large room with very clear sound. I have mine paired with the LG SPK8-S surround sound speakers, which creates amazing 5.1 immersive experience. I would say this is definitely worth the money. Although you can get much better Sound Bars at much higher prices, I think this will do just about everything you need. Oh, I didn't mention the base. The wireless subwoofer gives off very clear and precise Bass which totally enhances the audio experience. Overall the system it's constructed well with quality materials. Not much plastic at all. And includes mounts with mounting template which makes it very easy to wall mount. Connection options include HDMI ARC, Optical, and Bluetooth. You could also use LG Smart sync. I definitely recommend this unit to someone who wants a nice big Soundbar with great sound add at a moderate price.

    Sound this good used to mean a whole day of tinkering setup frustrations. Now, with HDMI-CEC and ARC technologies, you can be up and running in minutes! This soundbar turns on and off along with my game console, television, and streaming box. With AI Sound Pro, my content always sounds it’s best. The default 3.1 configuration sounds so good, I may have to pickup the optional rear surround kit to make this a 5.1 system! Helpful tips to help you maximize your setup out of the box: Enable HDMI CEC on all connected devices (sometimes called Simplink or by other trade names, or more generically as HDMI control, this technology controls sleep/wake and auto-negotiates input, passes remote commands such as volume and mute, and is the secret sauce that lets it all work seamlessly!) Make sure your devices can output bitstream audio for highest quality, or at least PCM Connect the HDMI Out on this soundbar to the HDMI ARC port on your television (this allows for the best sound quality with this system, and allows all HDMI devices connected to your TV to use your TV as an audio selector switch) And that’s basically it! Plug in the sound bar to power, then the sub, and you’re ready to rock!!!

    Great sound! Super easy to set up and use!

    Posted .

    I am not an audiophile-in fact I had convinced myself that sound quality did not matter if you were watching TV. I was wrong! This soundbar and subwoofer were packaged well. Never having wireless anything before (other than my tablet and computer) I was a little surprised and worried about the 'extras' in the box. I had not reason to be concerned. The installation and setup were well explained in the instructions and were very easy. I am totally blown away by the ease of use, the intuitiveness of use and the sound quality. We have an LG TV and the integration with it was seamless. The sound bar is unobtrusive, but the sound is clear, crisp. The wireless subwoofer really packs a punch. The remote is easy to use. We watch everything with the sound system on now - from game shows to the news to moveis and sports. It really makes a difference and we are truly enjoying out viewing-listening experience! “I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review”

    Some major points. Sounds great. Bass isn't annoying. Does come with mounts. You just need anchors and screws to center it under the TV. It comes with small screws to attach the bar to the mount tho. Don't lose those. Its comes with a perfect paper template to make your holes. Make sure the paper is perfectly flat to the wall before drilling. Drill right through the paper. Also it DOES Bluetooth music. It does not have Alexa or Google. Or voice control. But for $250 this thing is awesome. Set up is very easy. Plug in the hdmi to your ARC hdmi outlet on your TV. And plug in power cord. The subwoofer is just a power cord. It has a pairing button but should just automatically connect. Enjoy

    Sounds great! Easy set up. Love that it has the numbers to tell what setting sound is on because our Bose in the other room doesn’t do that. Also had a Great price and we saved $30 buying it in a Bundle with the TV!

    Nice LG Soundbar. Great deal on an open-box item. Dialogue in Movies is very clear, and bass from the woofer brings the big screen to life. I now need to source the additional wireless rear speakers to make the set-up complete.

    Upgraded to this when I purchased a 65" LG TV this past year for our 20x30 sitting room. The sound is amazing and it was the easiest to set up. I have recommended this item to family and friends. I would definitely purchase it again.

    Ive owned this set up for quite a few months now. The sound quality is amazing for the cost. I was thinking about going with a system with a higher wattage but opted to go with a more economical one just to see what I thought about it. Honestly I don’t think I need any more sound. LG products have really impressed me across the board and the sound quality is equally impressive as a anything I’ve heard for the price.

    Much better than expected and awesome sound.

    Posted .

    Got my first soundbar and I for this I tried the LG Soundbar SLM6Y, at first I was disappointed because the packaging was not fully closed when it was delivered, but once I took a look inside I was glad nothing was missing. Right out of the box, everything was packaged carefully with individual bags and wrapped neatly. It included the batteries for the remote, the remote, optical audio cable, instructions and even a cutout as a guide for the installation of the bar. It was easy to pair with my phone via Bluetooth and I thought there was going to be extra steps for the subwoofer but I just plugged into the wall and it connected by itself right away, both combined sound amazing. I have it in a room that is about 20’ by 15’ and the 420 watts is enough for watching TV or listening to music. After adjusting the bass and treble it sounded even better, the HDMI ARC connection makes it easy for my TV to control the soundbar so I only use the remote to make minor adjustments but other than that I can control the volume and power from the TV, the volume can be adjusted from my phone while playing music. The 3.1 channel sound is better than expected and with the dts virtual X helps the sound for a better experience. Overall great design, value and it’s ready for the additional wireless speakers (SPK8-S) to have the surround sound and I will consider getting them soon, stay tuned for that video. The bar could use a better box that stays closed. “I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review”

    I love the sound quality of the LG SLM6Y soundbar and its bluetooth capability. I had a little trouble getting it to automatically connect to the tv but once I figured out the settings, it auto connected and I could even use the tv remote to control the sound of the sound bar. The sound coupled with the new LG OLED TV provides an unbeatable combination. I can’t say enough good things about LG audio and video products! I would definitely recommend this to someone who is also looking for quality sound at a reasonable price.

    Sounds Right! Priced Right!

    Posted .

    OMG - Where to begin! The LG SN6Y 3.1 Sound Bar is awesome! It's a well crafted design that fits and looks GREAT on any TV stand or mounted to the wall. It took me 5 mins to set up via bluetooth to my TV and Sub-Woofer. The remote control style is simple and convenient to use. The system paired to my TV/Cable remote without any extra steps from me. Quality - By far the best soundbar I've ever owned! The movie/TV sounds are clear and crisp. There are several modes of sound quality to select from the best suits your needs. I've often struggle to hear programs with the amount of noise that takes place in my house but my new sound bar - that is no longer an issue. We are enjoying theater sounds in the comforts of our home that is transforming our movie experience. The quality you receive is more than the amount of the reasonable price device. This is a brand that I will believe in and will continue to purchase from to enhance my home features! I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

    I recently added an LG tv to my den. I decided I wanted to sound bar to match. For me the issues are because it’s a smaller room. So I had to turn the sub woofer down a bit. And increase the center channel. Hooking up via HDMI (arc) was a breeze and the remote foe the tv controls it all. The quality of the build and sound is amazing. If I had a larger area this would still fit nicely. I used the Best Buy universal mount kit and mounted this sound bar right under the tv. It fit and works perfect It’s so good in fact , I am considering adding a LG tv to my living room as well.

    The sound you've been listening for

    Posted .

    What a Sound Bar! Not only is this product reasonably priced; it's sound quality is great! This product was easy to set up and shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. The LG Sound Bar is slick looking and should fit into any media center. It gives you the option to wall mount it or to have it free standing. Listening to the TV hasn't been the same since we purchased the LG Sound Bar. Every TV program we listen to now has be be played via the sound bar. The clarity and detail we hear when watching Movies and Singing TV program are awesome! I've now replaced my mini Bluetooth speaker with the LG Sound Bar. Rocking out to my favorite streaming station while doing house work, building products or purely relaxing has transcended with this new addition to our home. I would recommend the LG Sound Bar 3.1 to everyone looking to improve their TV/Movie watching experience! “I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review”

    Excellent decision! The sound quality is so much better, especially hearing dialogue over background music, and it’s easy to use. Soundbar can be linked to the tv remote for ease of use. Love it!

    So far so good. I have had this for almost a week now and to me it sounds amazing, sound just like a theatre. I bought this sound bar because my tv needed more volume. To be honest this is a really loud and powerful soundbar in my opinion. At volume 16 it's almost to loud for me and it goes all the way to 39 and then MAX level after 39; and at max I cant even hear myself scream its so loud. The sound bar is 49 inches long and it does have a display on it so that you can see what your doing. So far the woofer hasn't went in and out like other reviews say and the bass is loud and has a big thump even just on level 16 (on bass blast mode). So yes the house will shake with the woofer if that's what your looking for. To me it's a good balance of bass and sound; I have an Lg tv and used the optical cord to connect. You can pair your phone through bluetooth and play music and the woofer is wireless, you just have to plug it in and it will automatically connect to the soundbar. The soundbar modes : standard, dts virtual:x, bass blast, Ai sound pro... if that's important to you. Standard is good enough for me and all others sound good as well. 15 1/2 x 7 x 11 1/2 is the measurements of the woofer.

    Great Soundbar with a beautiful design

    Posted .

    Overall I am very happy with the LG SN6Y Sound Bar. Right out of the box I was very impressed with the design that features sleek curved lines and hidden controls. Even the freestanding subwoofer is very clean looking and blends well with our decor. Set up was a breeze, you basically just plug in and pair with your television, and once paired the entire system delivers rich sound tailored to your content. Every detail is heard more clearly, music, background noise, and especially dialogue, which I usually have trouble hearing. I like that with the additional subwoofer you can create a unique surround sound experience by placing the speaker anywhere you'd like, although I did notice that when placed near our router the wifi signal was slightly affected, which is clearly stated in the setup instructions, so keep this in mind when deciding where to place your subwoofer. I frequently use the system to stream music and have noticed a huge difference in sound clarity and depth of sound with the LG soundbar. I hear details and arrangements in my music that I never noticed before, it feels as though I'm listening to the artists live. If you're looking for sound perfection in a sleek audio setup that you can customize to your space I would highly recommend the LG SN6Y Sound Bar.
