    JBL Bar 5.1 reviews

    Bar 5.1 510W 5.1-Channel Soundbar System is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soundbar and amzing sub I'm very much pleased with my purchase of this soundbar. The sound quality is phenomenal with deep base! The sub literally shakes your room! I'm not an expert on sounds but I felt sound was comparable to bose soundtouch 300 with sub and surround package which costs way more. The setup was very easy (just one HDMI cable) to connect to TV. The soundbar can be controlled with TV remote just fine. The Bluetooth also works as expected and once paired, very easy to switch to bluetooth without having to use the remote. Overall, very happy with the purchase and I would certainly recommend it for anyone looking for soundbars in this price range

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bass and immersive surround sound I bought this about 30 days ago and so far i am very happy with it's overall sound and features. Very easy to connect and get up and running. The Wireless 10" subwoofer is the best wireless soundbar subwoofer i have heard. Plenty of bass. Rear speakers and mounts are a genius and work well! I was surprised. Make sure you calibrate them with the included mic and wall mount them for best performance. Don't just set them on coffee tables or stands on each side of couch. Remote is very useful with volume settings for the overall system and independent volume settings for the subwoofer and rear surround speakers. Only real weak point for the JBL 5.1 is during 2 channel or stereo music like thru bluetooth. Not as good as others i have owned but for movies or TV content thru good sources it's a awesome set up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thundering BASS I bought this product last week and I have turned on the Dallas Cowboys game and you could hear everything so crisp. With my previous system I couldn't hear the intricate little background sounds like I can with this system. The bass is extremely loud and it makes my entire house shake. I love bass so this system suits me perfectly. Music is clear and it is easy to control the system through the remote. I would highly recommend this if you are an avid movie watcher or love playing your music loud. The sub is probably a good 40 pounds so that right there shows the quality of the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing! I bought the JBL 5.1 after weeks of searching for the best buy. I was also unwavering on a 10 inch sub. That led me to JBL 3.1. After looking at the 3.1 I also looked at the 5.1 and loved the idea of the removable, wireless speaks for real theater sound. I could not be any happier! The sound clarity, bass and mids are exceptional! Could not be happier! If you are thinking about the 5.1 just do it, you wont be disappointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing My husband wanted a Bose system, but I did some reviews and got him this for Christmas. It is so crystal clear. The subwoofer fools me sometimes. I think something is outside the house but its just the low tones coming thru that sound like real life. My husband is very pleased with it as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied!! Best I heard looking for setup for a week and cost was half of other brands, great sound

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Soundbar for Movies I bought the JBL Bar 5.1 specially for movies about 2 weeks ago . The 5.1 soundbar is awesome for movies but only acceptable for playing music.
    Date published: 2018-03-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Theater like experience I was initially looking for something with Chromecast and Alexa, but this is for the bedroom and secondly could not find a quality soundbar. Then I realized I would rarely use that function since there are speakers in the bathroom, living room etc to do that.This bar will play music from your phone or attached USB or HDMI source. But the main criteria is to have great sound coming out of the TV. This unit performs beyond expectations and sounds as good as a 7.2 speaker system. It helped mounting the Soundbar above the TV and not below to get the best output and the detachable Surround speakers at the same height and the calibrated the speakers. Makes watching TV on a 60 inch screen enjoyable. If you want a true Surround Speakers experience, and don't want to mess with wires I have found nothing better. Moving the magnetic surround speakers from the mount back to the bar for charging is easy. Above all, it's a well designed unit that looks as beautiful as it sounds.
