The use of your sound bar

How to choose your sound bar? First, you must consider the way you are planning on using your sound bar. For instance, to watch films and for video games, you will want equipment with good sound spatialization, such as the SC500SND sound bar or our SC300SND gaming model, which was designed especially for this type of activities. On the other hand, to listen to music, you will want a sound bar with large speakers.

Power

The power of your sound bar must fit the size of your room. So, the larger your room, the more power your sound bar should have.

With or without a subwoofer

For your information, sound bars do not necessarily offer enough bass quality. That is why some of them come with separate subwoofers which will give a better transmission of low-pitched sounds.

Spatialization

When you are watching a film, you probably want to immerse yourself into it as much as you can. For this, you want equipment with a good sound spatialization. Just like a home-cinema, a quality sound bar can create surround sound effect. If you want to enjoy this type of sound effect, you should go with a 2.1 piece of equipment at least, like our SC550SND model.

Specifically, the first figure corresponds to the number of channels dedicated to high-pitched and medium sounds. Simultaneously, the second figure indicates the presence of a channel dedicated to low-pitched sounds.

Connections

Connections available in a sound bar also matter. To be precise, this type of equipment can have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a USB port, an HDMI port, an Ethernet socket, an optical or co-axial input. You want to make sure that the connections available in your equipment are compatible with all the uses you are going to make of it.
