  • Great now that I have new one
I bought this JPL soundbar to replace the one I purchased from Amazon the week before. That “renewed” bar came in a severely damaged box and the unit itself was also badly damaged with two of the subwoofer’s feet broken off, and a dent in one of the surrounds that let-on to internal damage (it rattled). I promptly returned it with the idea of buying somewhere and/or something else. The product showed up again on the Amazon website at a better price (new) so I took a chance. This box did have a rip under the tape, but I opened it and found it to be new and free from damage. I have not experienced home theater since about 2006. New living arrangements meant that I had to put my Yamaha powered B&W 600 series home theater in storage. Two center channels two big floorstanding 640is two rear bookshelf, and a 12” Paradigm subwoofer. Was this JBL going to give me anything like that? Nope, but that’s fine. I wanted to see what 16 or so years of technology with a much smaller footprint could give me. I’m very happy with the JBL for home theater and that is what I have it for. I really don’t care about using it for music, it will happen, but it’s not my real concern. Watched The Incredibles and Cars: lots of great Doppler action, explosions and glass breaking. I’m a big fan of the detachable rear speakers and they will spend most of their working life detached from the bar. I did not want wires trailing along the walls but I did want real surround. The subwoofer is also very good with lots of floor and wall-shaking bass. It doesn’t move nearly as much air as the paradigm nor does it adjust your organs with its hertz, but it played its role very well. Set-up was very easy I am using the ARC connection (never used that before on the TV) and it makes connecting other devices very easy and it sounds great. One day I will set the old system back-up (16 + years of receiver tech should really make for a great sound experience. ... show more

  • Awesome
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
