  • Awesome
Style: New
I have to start off by saying I'm not a tech-savvy guy... like not at all. Despite my disability with technology, I was able to have this up and running within minutes. I wanted to summarize my experience with the setup in the hopes it helps you guys out. I should mention I plugged this system into a Samsung TV, which apparently makes the process easier, especially when it comes to your TV remote being able to control the volume on the soundbar. For me, this happened automatically. My TV remote started controlling the JBL soundbar on its own. Awesome! The system includes some hardware to hang your soundbar and also to hang your small rear speakers, which I thought was really cool. Everything was literally plug-and-play. I powered on the soundbar, powered on the subwoofer and they both automatically communicated with each other and paired up without me doing anything else. My biggest complaint about the setup process was the difficulty I had trying to plug in the power cord into the back of the soundbar. The angle is very awkward, but I got it done. There are four HDMI plugs in the back of the soundbar, one of them is labeled HDMI ARC. This is the one you're supposed to use with your TV (Took a while for me to figure that out). I'm also using an optical cable that is also plugged into the back of the soundbar and goes to the TV. Unfortunately, when you turn off the TV and go to turn everything back on, the soundbar defaults back to HDMI ARC, so I had to manually change the source on the soundbar back to OPT. The only fix I saw was to unplug the HDMI ARC and only leave the Optical cable plugged in. This seemed to do the job. Why would I need both sources anyhow? The reason I wanted to go with the Optical cable is because I heard a YouTuber mention that the HDMI signal was not as good for surround sound. In my opinion, the Optical cable sounded crisper. Which every cable you decide to use, just make sure you plug it all the way into the back of the soundbar. Mine looked like it was all the way in, but it wasn't. The other step you have to take is to go into your TV's sound settings and change the source of your sound from TV speakers to either HDMI sound or Optical. For the calibration process, make sure your surround speakers are where you'll want them when you watch TV. Also, make sure your subwoofer is turned on. There is a small calibration speaker with a pin connection that comes in the box. This "calibration speaker" (my term for it) is used to calibrate your speaker's sound for an optimum surround sound experience OR to use as a starting point to then manually improve the settings on your own if you're so inclined. Here is another goof-up I did. Do NOT plug in the pin to the back of the soundbar. It will fit perfectly, but this is NOT where the calibration speaker goes. You'll find the pin connection on the end of the right side of the soundbar. It's hard to see, but it's there. Once I had the calibration speaker plugged in, I placed it in the center of my living room. Using the JBL remote control, press the "calibration" button (the remote labeled it "calibration") for three seconds. WARNING, do NOT do this at night when your family is asleep. My wife wasn't happy when I did my calibration at midnight and she was even less impressed that I was about four vodka and sodas in. Once the calibration starts, you'll hear each speaker individually make an ear-piercing static sound. The calibration only takes a few seconds, but definitely makes a difference with the surround sound performance. I unplugged the calibration speaker and stowed it away in the event I ever have to reset my setting or I decide to move my speakers to a different location. Hope this helped. ... show more

  • Wireless Surround satellite speakers are poor. Subwoofer is great, soundbar calibration required.

Understand my background in formal audio stage and light setup for various years, an owner of home theater projection setups for 30 years, and 36 years of formal IT computer science and engineering. I really really wanted to like this sound bar setup. For reference I setup the sound bar, rear surround speakers, and subwoofer for my 150 inch 4K projection setup. Due to the size of the screen and dimensions of the room, I felt this would be enough sound and convenient setup for running limited wiring. After trying this unit for a few weeks, I had no recourse but to return the unit after all. Initially the wireless rear surround setup worked fairly well with minimal cutouts, but over time they got much much worse where every scene was ruined by rear cutout and distortion from no signal. I attempted various changes to remedy this, wireless signal removals for interference, placement, obstructions or lack of, distance to the sound bar as little as 6 feet. Repairing and resetting the device itself. Nothing worked. The subwoofer seemed to work wireless flawlessly, but the surround speakers (both) had cutouts very very often. Sometimes only seconds apart. Site wireless survey shows minimal neighborhood wireless signal intrusion of -70db or less (after turning my own wireless off just to test fully. Not that it would have been acceptable that way, but it made every movie with the wireless speakers in use unwatchable due to the constant distractions after a few weeks. Also, the sound bar itself was very prone to an empty "middle" sound separation area where highs and dialogue ranges were spot on clear, but a very empty middle and booming bass. I will say, calibrating the system (more on that later) made a huge improvement to the setup, but not on par with other sound bars or sound systems for that matter. Calibration was not like many indicated, the test sound was not "SUPER LOUD" to any point where it scared anyone in the room/house/neighborhood. I suspect others who had this issue had the volume at a level higher than say 30 or had a very small echoing room. I recommend testing at sub 30 volume levels when commenced to avoid this possible issue. Also, the directions are a bit clear on this, but NOT obvious at first without reading the manual, the mic calibration port is only possible to connect if you remove the right side rear surround speaker, the port is between where the right side surround speaker and the sound bar meet. This was very unintuitive without a manual and many will see the "no mic detected" warning if they dont get this plug right or dont secure it enough, you've been warned. On the overall side, I would say the sound itself is actually very good after calibration. The bass from the subwoofer shakes the walls completely and though no manual tweaking on the subwoofer itself like most active/passive subwoofers, it wasnt to the point where I found it a huge disadvantage. Just be warned if you like tweaking subwoofer phase or response levels, look elsewhere. Little niggles aside, even for a mild audiophile cinephile like me, this is a very acceptable no-nonsense setup IF the rear speakers wireless system was even remotely accurate. I was so on the fence of returning these or not, because honestly it takes a lot more money to outdo this system, and I checked a lot of other near competitors. In the end I couldnt bring myself to years of this frustration or doing without a feature that the system touts as a big reason you would opt for this setup at all. I highly suspect JBL discontinued this product based on customer complaints of rear surround speakers. Their new setup emulates rear surround, which if you cant get the feature right, might as well ditch the feature entirely to be honest. Reduces customer diminishing opinion on your product lines. BTW, yes, I didnt find I couldnt charge and use the rear wireless surround speakers at the same time, but sometimes found they turned themselves off randomly even though I hard wired them to a wall charger as the manual indicates you can do. Just found it weird I had to sometimes manually turn them on for watching enjoyment which is also a bit undesired. Pros: Great sound once calibrated even if it was a little upper and lower register heavy Pounding believable bass from the subwoofer Convenient setup (if the wireless worked well) Great HDMI inputs and ARC output all in one No receiver needed like some higher end sound bars JBL name which has a long history in quality sound in the consumer market Remote had enough features and not lacking Volume had control from other devices to utilize the included remote less Included hardware to mount to wall if needed GREAT price for what you are getting (though diminished a lot without working rears) Cons: WIRELESS surround speakers constant cutouts and distortion No good presence of the middle frequency range from sound No dual HDMI outputs (though most sound bars only have 1, so this is a little nitpicking) Somewhat weird look of the sound bar when the rear surround speakers are removed (empty connectors), which is aesthetic, but not nothing. Randomly having to turn the rear surround speakers on or off when going to watch TV/movies. This would be very annoying if this sound bar was my daily setup and I wanted consistent surround sound. ... show more
