Amazon Alexa Control

When you say "Alexa," the Command Bar automatically lowers its volume, letting you clearly state your command, because Amazon Alexa Voice Services and far-field microphones are built into the soundbar.

Designed for Immersive Home Theater Sound

With a performance-tuned driver array, wireless subwoofer, and Dolby/DTS surround sound decoding, you can enjoy an immersive home theater experience.

Control Your Soundbar with Amazon Alexa

The integrated far-field microphones make it easy to control master volume and set the bass level, sound mode, and source selection with just your voice.

Alexa Action Button on the Remote

The Command Bar includes an infrared (IR) remote control with an integrated Alexa action button – just press the action button and the Command Bar will decrease in volume to ensure your voice commands are heard, even when you're listening at high volume.

4K-Compatible

The Command Bar works with 4K and HDTVs, and its dual HDMI 2.0b inputs ensure 4K HDR compatibility.

Polk Voice Adjust Technology

Customize the voice levels in the soundbar however you prefer to reproduce clear, crisp dialogue and not miss a word of your favorite movie, TV show, or sporting event.

Amazon Fire TV-Compatible

The HDMI ports are designed and spaced to fit Fire TV and other HDMI streaming devices. The built-in USB port also powers original and 4K versions of the Fire TV.

Upgradeable Design

Automated over-the-air support updates help ensure that the soundbar is kept up-to-date with Alexa voice services and other features.

Smart Home Compatibility

The Command Bar can work with lights, fans, TVs, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, locks, and more with compatible connected devices from Amazon, WeMo, ecobee, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, and others.

TV Remote Capability

Control volume and mute with your compatible Samsung, LG, Sony, and VIZIO TV remotes without programming, whether connected via HDMI or optical cable.

Bluetooth Music Streaming

Connect and stream music directly from your smartphone, tablet, or other compatible device with Bluetooth.

Virtually Universal Compatibility

The included high-speed HDMI and optical cables help ensure quick and easy setup, and the low-profile 2" design likely won't block your TV's screen.

Sport, Music, and Movie Modes

These preset modes to help ensure immersive sound for all of your home entertainment.

Night Mode

This mode calibrates the soundbar and subwoofer for quieter nighttime viewing.

Two Placement Options

The soundbar is designed for both tabletop and wall-mounting via built-in keyhole slots.

Polk Audio Command Bar Reviews

Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't

Sometimes Alexa works but mostly she doesn't. Sometimes it is impossible to get sound from it. Need to reset it constantly. When it works it does sound good.

I’ve had this for 2 years and Alexa had only worked for a few months. If you pause the tv or leave it on menu you have to restart the whole tv for sound. Also randomly makes the most god awful sound I’ve ever heard. Waste of money.

Absolute junk

This sound bar has had issues from day one. Never has worked right. You can not change the Alexa name to call it by Echo or any other name. Constantly loses connection to the internet. The microphone will turn on and never shut off some times. The app is horrible with no options to change. Not a good product and should be discontinued.

Subwoofer never synced up with the sound bar

Alexa rarely works, randomly shuts off, Ive had it for about 2 years, had polk products in the past. Now the bar sits in my garage occasionally used for bluetooth audio.

Look! Their are more expensive bar/bass combinations. Money set aside; this is what you want if you can get your hands on one. It will body rock your whole house and your neighbors will hear you too. I keep my sound levels respectful with me being in a duplex. But - believe me, I have the superior sounds. We had a sound off once. I had it (not even) half volume but the bass at max. It was a slaughter fest. buy it! You won’t regret it.

Love the sound and sleek design
