WHICH SOUNDBAR IS BEST FOR ME?
There are a wide range of soundbar speakers available. With so many different options to choose from. It can be hard to decide which one will be best for you and work well with your TV. This quiz will go through 8 questions to find which one is best for you.
We make sure that you get the best rated sound bar speaker for your TV. As well as this we find you the best value for money as well as compatible with and fits your screen.
We have only added the best available speakers for their price. You don’t need to do any research, we have already done all this! We will ask a few questions so that it is easy for you to find the best sound bar to buy.
WHAT SOUNDBAR BEST FITS MY TV?
There are a few things to think about when working out the best fit, they are: size of the sound bar, where it is going to be placed, and how you are going to connect it to your television.
Starting with size. The obvious problem with selecting a new sound bar is that it might be bigger than your TV. This would look silly. A speaker that is the same size or only slightly shorter than your TV would look best. To find the optimal size you simply only need to measure the width of your TV and that’s the maximum length your speaker should be. Don’t forget your TV’s screen size is measured diagonally, so the actual width of the TV will be smaller. (In the specifications for your television it should give you the product dimensions).
But if you are using our quiz then we work out the best size sound bar for you. So no need to worry! Using your screen size we know the rough length you will need for the tv speaker. Knowing where you are going to place it dictates the type of soundbar that will work best. Some soundbars have speakers that do not face forward, they will therefor not be best if placed in a shelf. Other sound bars are quite large and could block your view if they are placed in front of the television. If you are going to mount it to a wall then you need to know that it is able to be mounted.
Knowing what type of connection you need and if the soundbar you want has it is important. And while many speakers have a multitude of connection options some do omit certain inputs. We work out the best connection option for you, however if you want further reassurance this website (Crutchfield.com) offers a great in-depth overview on connections.
THE BEST QUALITY SOUNDBAR?
All the sound bars we recommend are as good a sound quality as possible. So no matter your budget, you will get the best boom for your buck. From 2.0 to 7.1 channel speakers on our quiz, there is a speaker for every type of room.
DO YOU HAVE A 4K TV?
4K is now more affordable then ever, and the improvement in screen quality often has the opposite effect on sound quality. So it is likely that many of you are looking for a sound quality to match your magnificent new investment. However there is one important thing to remember, to get the best sound out of a 4k television you need to have a soundbar that is compatible with it. This is becoming more common, but many models are still not UHD ready. The quiz makes sure that you only get recommended the correct model, but a quick flick though specifications on amazon will make sure you get it right.
IS AN EXTERNAL BASE NECESSARY?
Many soundbars come with an external base. It is often wireless. But do you need it? Well it depends. If you are watching films and gaming then an external base is a vast improvement. But many will be buying a soundbar to maximise a small amount of extra space, and an external may not be an option. Not to worry, many bar only speakers have managed to get a base into the bar itself, and while this is not normally as good an option, some newer options are getting close, and could be good enough.
IMPROVING VOICE CLARITY
If you television is really lacking projecting in crisp clear voices, then a soundbar could be the best option, the improved sound will really help you hear everything. However this may not be enough, and many companies know this so they have developed dialogue enhancement modes, sometimes called clear voice. With this mode you will be able to hear voices better than ever.
