Full Sound Bars Guide

Love Soundbar? Share:

Included in the guide are 7 columns:

  • Sound bar pictures
  • Sound bar name/model – (click to view more details or to purchase)
  • Audio Power Output – The output power of the speakers and the subwoofer in Watt.
  • Configuration – The configuration of the system: wireless or wired subwoofer etc.
  • Warranty – How long is the product warranty; important to protect your investment especially on the more expensive models.
  • Frequency Response – Frequency response refers to the audio signal that is being reproduced by the sound bar.
  • Price – These are approximate prices on Amazon.com. These change frequently based on availability, special promotions, and more. But generally speaking: $ = under $150, $$ = $150 to $300, $$$ = $300 to $500, $$$$ = $500 to $1000, $$$$$ = $1000+
  • Rating – The average user rating on Amazon.com. This can be very helpful in deciding if people are satisfied with their purchase.

Please note that this table is still a work in progress. Many of the details are still missing, and I’m still working to add more details/features into the table.
