First time I’ve not loved an LG productFrom day one this sound bar has been nothing but trouble. At first the sub woofer wouldn’t work and it’s moved to bass in the sound bar dropping at random points. The sound bar has spent more time at the warranty office getting “fixed” than it has been in our home. Every time we get it back there seems to be another issue, and because it has spent so much time at the warranty office we missed our window to return it and get a refund. This sound bar has been an absolute headache to deal with.

Will the SLM5y work with the SPK-8s speakers? I see the SPK-8s on the page for the SLM5y but when I check it does not show as a supported model.

The sound bar clearly outputs but the Subwoofer is pathetically quiet. It is connected as I can faintly hear sound when I place my ear to the front of it. Its green LED in on.

I purchased the SL4Y LG sound bar and subwoofer set in August 2020. The problem is that anyone within 100 yards can log into my sound bar and play music. I have been interrupted from my sleep, and can't watch anything in peace. This system is flawed. HELP
Asked by: John357
The LG SL4Y 2.1 Channel 300W Sound Bar w/ Bluetooth Streaming, Model # SL4Y is not flawed. This unit can only be paired with one device at a time and it does not support multi-pairing so if you already have it paired to any of your Bluetooth enabled devices like your smartphone, no one else should be able to pair with the unit. The unit also has a Bluetooth Connection Lock (BT Lock) that lets you limit Bluetooth connection to only BT (Bluetooth) and an LG TV function to prevent unintended Bluetooth connection. You can find instructions for how to turn this function on in the 'Operating' instructions on page 32 in your owners manual...^IFV

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" 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" 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 & High-Resolution Audio states that using the TV remote control does not operate with the LG Magic Remote...^IFV
