Enhance your TV's audio with the VIZIO SmartCast 45" 5.1-Channel Soundbar System. It features a soundbar with 4" left, right, and center drivers, an 8" wireless subwoofer for low bass impact, and two satellite speakers with 4" drivers for a true surround sound experience. Its ability to decode Dolby and DTS signals is designed to improve the quality of your sound compared to your TV speakers alone.

The SmartCast 45" has Bluetooth connectivity for pairing with your compatible smart device and wirelessly streaming your audio content. Its wired connections include HDMI, optical, USB, and digital coaxial inputs to support a variety of source types. Its HDMI output is ARC-compatible, so you can hear TV-based audio from built-in apps like Netflix and YouTube. It includes an IR remote control and a number of cables for instant connectivity. Both the soundbar and the satellite speakers are wall-mountable with the included mounts, though you have to provide the screws to attach them to the wall.

    VIZIO SB4551-D5 reviews

    SmartCast 45" 5.1-Channel Soundbar System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY IT! BAD WARRANTY, NO REPAIRS AVAILABLE. I would not purchase this again, for 500 dollars it is far from worth it. I brought it initially for less than 350 new. I Initially had a few issues with it with keeping the wireless sub-woofer and rear speakers paired� but was able to follow the online help instructions to trouble shoot it and fix it. These issues started almost within the first few months then progressively got worse and worse, what is even more supprising is that this sound bar is hardly used and despite this has completely failed within a few weeks after my first year of it. Now all i have is a 500 dollar waste of a 3.0 sound bar, the rear speakers are completely useless and do not pair for longer than three seconds. To make it worse since I called in for a replacement 2 weeks after owning it for just a year vizio no longer will support this sound bar, there is no fix once the wireless sound bar does not work, YOU CANNOT REPAIR IT, once borken your stuck paying another 500 dollars for a another one, they will only offer you a slight discount for a new one, which was was hardly a discount if anything 30 dollars off a cheaper model.� If your considering on purchasing a model, make sure its hard wired, do not purchase from vizio consider a different brand with better warranty, quality and support. Pros: Comes with lots of cables for set up The concept of a wireless sub sounds nice (This broke within the first three months and is not repairable) Cons: -Smartcast is a joke, your better off buying a 35 dollar chrome cast of 20 dollar chrome audio, all this does is support chromeaudio it will not allow for video streaming -The app is horrible to set up, pairing and connecting to the internet is hard to do and will take 20 minutes to set up -Sound quality is not great, it only has two EQs music and movie. The sub and rear speakers do not sound great compared to other sound bars or just individual speaker set up.� -THERE ARE NO REPAIRS AVAILABLE FOR THIS ITEM ONCE BROKEN YOU CANNOT REPLACE IT.� -LACK OF CUSTOMER SUPPORT� -LIMITED WARRANTY once it has any hardware fail dont expect anything less than having to buy another one at full price
