What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy this for multi-purpose This unit has a default to Optical (I use for TV). However, when you want to stream music through ITunes, you change it to BT (bluetoth). The problem is that part way through the first song, it changes back to Opti on it's own. Sometimes it will change back to BT, but then change again to Opti. Very annoying. The only fix is - to stream with BT is to remove the optical cable from the back of the unit so the default position isn't available. Lengthy conversations with LG found no other way around this. The Engingeers at LG need to make a change so this unit measures up to all the other sound bars of similar and better quality on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds Good I purchased this sound bar a few months ago and have been pleased with the purchase. Definitely better sound than my built in tv speakers. Pairs well with my LG TV. Volume on movies still a challenge but overall a quality sound bar. Plenty of power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Great features, great sound! But, not that reliable. Thought speaker needed repairing, returned twice, was told nothing was wrong. However, I continued to have the same problem; i.e. transferring sound from television to sound bar. No sound, except occasionally. Tried everything. All other equipment perfect. Not a big fan of HMDI/ARC. Just gave up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid sound bar Overall a great sound bar. Maybe a bit bass heavy for normal dialogue, but music and action flicks are awesome. Subwoofer easy to hide out of the way, but you can definitely hear/feel it no matter where you put it.

How do I sync my soundbat to my subwoofer. The instructions say to press the button behind the soundbar for 5 second but the green light never stops blinking 

Asked by: Anthony2686
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Sound Bar system. The description given suggests that the pairing process of the Subwoofer speaker has failed. When your connection is not completed, you can check red LED or blinking green LED on the wireless subwoofer and the wireless subwoofer does not make sound. To solve the problem, follow the steps below. 1. Adjust volume level of the main unit to minimum by pressing VOL v button repeatedly until standby LED (Red) turns on for 2 seconds and blinks slowly. 2. Press and hold (Mute) on the remote control for about 3 seconds. The standby LED (Red) on the main unit blinks quickly. 3. Press and hold Pairing on the back of the wireless subwoofer for more than 5 seconds. The LED of the wireless subwoofer lights up alternately in red and yellow-green. 4. Disconnect the power cord of the main unit and the wireless subwoofer. 5. Turn on the main unit: The sound bar and wireless subwoofer will be automatically connected. Green LED on the rear of wireless subwoofer turns on. ^AC
