What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more bass Its been about 6 months with it. I would say its alright. It could be a little better in sound but its ok. Maybe i need to add the additional speakers kit that go on back which I'll buy later on. Maybe that's what it needs to sound better. Other tgan that its a good bar.

I have the blinking light on the sub woofer but I am not getting any bass.  

Asked by: Mikekkkkkkkkkk
When your connection is not completed, you can check red LED on the wireless subwoofer and the wireless subwoofer does not make sound. To solve the problem, follow the steps below. 1. Press Pairing button on the rear of the wireless subwoofer. - The green LED on the rear of the wireless subwoofer blinks quickly. (If the green LED does not blink, press and hold the Pairing button.) 2. Turn on the main unit. 3. Pairing is completed. - The green LED on the rear of the wireless subwoofer turns on It takes a few seconds (and may take longer) for the main unit and the subwoofer to communicate with each other and make sounds. The closer the main unit and the subwoofer, the better sound quality. It is recommended to install the main unit and the subwoofer as close as possible and avoid the cases below. - There is an obstacle between the main unit and the subwoofer. - There is a device using same frequency with this wireless connection such as a medical equipment, a microwave or a wireless LAN device. - Keep the sound bar and the subwoofer away from the device (ex. wireless router, microwave oven, etc.) over 1m (3.3 ft) to prevent wireless interference.

Does this sound bar SK5Y support 240V power ?

Asked by: KunalKK

Can the sound bar be mounted directly to the bottom of an LG TV ? My TV is wall mounted with a "hinged" bracket and it does not appear that it would be easy to attach a the bar to it.

Asked by: JRBF
Unlike the LG 4.1 ch High-Resolution Audio Sound Bar, Model # SJ8 which could be mounted directly under OLED65C7P, OLED55C7P, OLED65B7P and OLED55B7P LG OLED TVs using the LG Sound Bar Bracket, Model # T8, there isn't a bracket that is designed for the LG 2.1 ch High Res Audio Sound Bar w/ DTS Virtual:X Sound, Model # SK5Y. However, it does come with two brackets that you can use the supplied Wall Bracket Install Guide to align the brackets as close to the bottom of the TV as you can get it...^IFV
