    Default sound bar

    Anyone have a sound bar for thier TV and does it allow:

    You to hear better?

    directs the sound at you?

    what did you pay?

    What is reasonable to pay?

    I just want to have the sound come forward. I have a hard time hearing the females on shows.

    I thought the sound bar would help.

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks

    Yes I have a Sound Bar. It's 2 feet long 3 inches high and sits in front of the TV. Also has a second speaker 6X6 that is a Bass and remote, you can put it anywhere. All works with your volume control. It Helps me. The make or name of it is Boston. I've had it for a few years and can't remember what it cost.

    If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

    Bought and use a Bose. Great sound and was worth the price.

    I don’t have a sound bar but for several years have used a set of wireless tv headphones. I like them real well. I think there is newer technology out there now like maybe some kind of ear buds instead of a headphone...but mine is still functioning so not replacing it yet.

    My dogs, with their sensitive hearing, appreciate that I don’t turn the tv up where I can actually hear it. LOL.

    I agree that a LOT of women are hard to understand on tv... many talk at the higher pitch of a child rather than from the lower diaphragm and, at rapid-fire speed... plus they do not enunciate as they should... I think they quit providing speech and public speaking classes in high school several years ago.

    This link is to Crutchfield. Theirs range from under $200 to $2200.

    The separate subwoofer is really nice. If you can, go to a store (like Best Buy or similar) and listen to some in person.

    I got the 2.1 system and wish I had gotten the 3.1 system. The center channel is supposed to be good for voice.

    3=left, center, right and (.1) sub

    So yesterday I went and got a sound bar, not a terribly expensive one but good for what I wanted.

    I had trouble hooking it up because the plug in was for HDMI-ARC and all I have on the TV was HDMI.

    So I called the number and she walked me through it and I hooked up the optical cable and it worked.

    After fooling around with the TV controls and the volume I got it to work fine.

    Now the female voices come through and I can understand them.

    So I am good!

    Thanks for the advice.
