What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Subwoofer Will Not Pair Brand new out of box, subwoofer would not pair with sound bar. Called support and they answered almost immediately. Very friendly but unable to solve the issue even attempting manual pairing. Will be returning this unit and replacing it with a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this with a lg tv. So easy to setup. Couple steps and it works 100% from the tv using the tv remote seamlessly. The sound is amazing too.

I recently purchased the SL5Y soundbar set, thinking I would be upgrading from my SL4Y set that I currently have. However, the included subwoofer is MUCH quieter than the SL4Y one. Why would an inferior sub be included with the more expensive unit?

We hate to hear that, but would love to be able to help. We would be happy to see what's going on. Drop us a line on Twitter at @LGUSSupport or on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/LGUSA/ so we can get more info and see what we can do. ^CP

Will I be able to control this soundbar using the magic remote that came with my LG OLED 55&quot; which I purchased in June 2019? (the magic remote was NOT able to control a Bose soundbar that I just purchased, and am now returning)

Asked by: david mc
Which model of the LG OLED 55&quot; did you purchase. Was it a 2018 or 2019 model. On the 2019 models, they have a an Auto Device Detection Universal Remote Control function. The TV will scan the detected device to automatically set the universal remote control without manual setting. You may need to do some additional user settings after setting the universal remote control. However, the owner's manual for the LG SL5Y 2.1 Channel 400W Sound Bar w/ DTS Virtual: X &amp; High-Resolution Audio states that using the TV remote control does not operate with the LG Magic Remote...^IFV

I purchased this and the wireless surround speakers as well. Is it capable of connecting to a Google assistant or Amazon echo to play through that speaker as well?

I purchased this sound bar last week and I am wondering are there rear, Bluetooth speakers compatible with this system I can purchase as well?&nbsp;

Asked by: justwyn12
Upgrade to a truly cinematic surround audio experience. This optional kit (SPK8-S) includes a receiver unit that links wirelessly to compatible LG Sound Bars, then connects to a pair of supplied speakers that can be placed behind the listener. Information about these rear speakers can be found on our website at https://www.lg.com/us/home-audio/lg-SPK8-S-wireless-surround-kit

Can I hook up two sets of the LG spk8 dash speakers sets two sets to the soundbar of the LG SL5Y sound bar?
