Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds awesome.. Bought this to go with my T.V. and I am not disappointed. Sounds awesome plenty of bass

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Quality The sound quality of this set-up is better than I expected. It is difficult to gauge the quality in store, but what I was able to hear at the store convinced me. When I brought it home and set it up I was blown away. It sounded like I had an expensive surround sound setup. The wireless sub was an added bonus (only needs to be plugged into the wall). I don't notice any sound loss with anything that I use this for. Playing video games with this is awesome as well. This also has Bluetooth which makes listening to the iPod or any other music player awesome. There are different types of sound features you can choose from also. If you are in the market to buy a soundbar, but don't want to spend a lot of money, but still get quality sound then this is the unit for you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from meh sound quality is decent. at least until you play a game with a lot of noise like engine noise in forza... then its starts too buzz and rattle. the remote refuses too control my LG TV. and the TV remote wont control the bar. oh, and the sub-woofer started to make a repeating BOOF noise for a few min before i finally figured out what the noise was coming from, and realized it was smoking out the hole in the front like a Cheech and Chong re-run... so no thanks, wont be buying it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from misleading information on wirless connection Need to improve product design for improved ease of use when the TV is wall mounted. All the connections are impossible to reach unless the TV is removed from the wall. The cable attachment need to be recessed more so as not to crimp the cable and to allow ease of access. The wireless sound bar is NOT. Tried to connect LG TV and LG sound bar via wireless connection and can't without a dongle. LG forgot to mention that fact in both the TV and sound bar info. Oops. Really? TV pic quality and sound bar quality are good but not that much better than other brands. All brands could distinguish their products by improving ease of use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Having trouble with the wireless subwoofer We have had this sound bar for about a year and have not had a problem until recently. There seems to be an issue with the wireless subwoofer. There is a loud rumbling/distortion sound coming from the subwoofer and the actual audio is barely noticeable over it. The noise is present when connected to the Portable connection and the optical input. I originally had the sound bar connected to the TOSLINK on our LG TV. I tried connecting directly to our cable box and our blu ray player and found the noise was still there. Has anyone else had a similar issue? I was researching replacing the wireless adapter card in the subwoofer, but I'm not sure yet if this is the failure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sound Bar does not work after 18 months We purchased this sound bar system in February 2014. We opted for LG based on positive reviews and with the thought that it would be most compatible with our LG smart TV. This past week, after only 18 months of use, the sound bar no longer turns on. We have tried multiple outlets and cannot power up the sound bar. The sound bar was plugged into the same surge protector power strip that powers the rest of our electronics and they are all fully functional. We are very disappointed with the quality of this product and will not purchase another LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great sound at a great price This product gives great sound for a great price. As a movie watcher sound is everything and this sound bar delivers. Many options for sound and connections and it fits just right with it's size for most flat screen TV's.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Subwoofer Doesn't Connect to Sound Bar Bought this sound bar system. The bluetooth subwoofer worked great and was very convenient, with great sound quality; however, I went on deployment for a few months, 3 to be exact, only to come back and find out that the subwoofer was no longer paired with the sound bar. I know, "First World Problems," but if it was free I wouldn't be complaining, However, I did pay some good money for this.

My soundbar and subwoofer we're working perfect until I paired it with my phone now my tv wont connect to subwoofer only sound bar. What can I do?

Asked by: Mikelikeslg
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Sound Bar system. The Subwoofer of this system is not designed to pair with a television. It can only connect with the Sound Bar itself. Press and hold STOP on the unit and MUTE on the remote control simultaneously. “REMATE” should appear on the display window. 2. Press PAIRING on back of the woofer. The Yellow LED will flicker. 3. Turn off and on the unit. If you see the yellow LED, it’ s successful. 4. If you don’t see the yellow LED, try again Step 1- Step 3.

Can the soundbar be hooked up to a tv wall mount using a universal soundbar mount? Trying to connect to a corner mounted tv.

After using the Bluetooth functionality for over a year, the device will no longer display "BT READY" when I select the Bluetooth (BT) input.  It also does not appear on my device as an option to pair.  Is there a remedy for this issue?

Asked by: kristenc
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Sound Bar system. Is the device operating with its subwoofer at the moment? If so, then the Bluetooth transmitter and receiver of this system is still operational. Please check to see if this is the case. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot this matter.

My soundbar is stuck in portable mode!!??The display does not work either!? You can see The display But it doesn't work by touch, Does anyone know What to do???

Asked by: skinny34
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this device. If the Sound Bar does not respond properly, then it would be recommended to unplug the unit for about 45 seconds, to a minute. If, after this time, the system still does not operate correctly, then it may require service. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to make proper service arrangements.

If I lost my remote to the soundbar,  can I program a universal remote or order a replacement?? 

Asked by: Jon2007
There is no known reason why a Universal Remote Control could not be used. Programming of that controller would be a matter with which we would be unable to assist. Parts and accessories can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders, is 800-824-9491. You can also use their website, at
