Sound Bars with Subwoofer | Best Buy Canada

When you add a soundbar with subwoofer to your TV, the audio in your home theatre gets an instant upgrade. Everything you watch will sound crisp, clear, and more immersive than you thought possible.

What is a soundbar with subwoofer?

A soundbar is a long multi-channel speaker that connects to your TV via an HDMI cable. The number of channels on your soundbar depends on which model you choose, but you can find options including 3.1, 3.1.2, 5.1, and 7.1 channels.

When choosing the number of channels, the first number stands for the actual sound bar channels, the second number is how many subwoofers you’ll have, and the third number is how many external speakers the soundbar comes with. For example, a 5.1.2 soundbar has a 5 channel soundbar, one subwoofer, and two external up-firing speakers for surround sound.

Why should you consider a soundbar with subwoofer

The best soundbars with subwoofer offer you room filling sound for everything you watch. On its own, a 3 channel, 5 channel, or 7 channel soundbar has the power to produce surround sound. It can enhance the audio of your TV by producing crisp, clear dialogue and hit notes in the high and mid range. But if you want to experience the deep thump of bass when watching movie soundtracks and fast action content, the addition of a subwoofer is a must.

Soundbars are much better when paired with a subwoofer. The subwoofer will add that distinct surround sound rumble and the deep punch of bass. With a wired or wireless soundbar with wireless subwoofer, you can place the subwoofer a distance away from the sound bar and enjoy true theatre-quality surround sound.

Features on a soundbar with subwoofer

Some models, including LG soundbars with subwoofer and Samsung soundbar with subwoofer, offer multi-layered 3D sound using Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technology. Many types of soundbar with subwoofer are wireless, so they connect to each other via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Depending on which soundbar with subwoofer you choose, you may access different audio technologies that are unique to your favourite brand. Samsung offers a soundbar with subwoofer with Q-symphony, a technology that syncs your soundbar to your Samsung TV for immersive audio. Some types also have Apple AirPlay or apps that connect your Spotify account so you can easily stream your favourite playlists. If you have trouble hearing dialogue on your TV, certain models of soundbar with subwoofer feature active voice amplification so conversation in movies and on TV can be heard crisp and clear.
