What Is a Soundbar?
A soundbar is a loudspeaker that projects sound from an enclosed area or enclosure. Built wider than tall to allow for better audio transmission and projection, a soundbar is also easy to mount near, whether above or below, a television screen, stereo system, computer monitor, or home theater. The design for a soundbar system features multiple speakers inside a single cabinet to create a surround sound or stereo effect. You might also add a subwoofer to help support your soundbar if one does not come with your system.
Several Brands Sell Soundbars
While many of today’s big-screen televisions offer plenty of bells and whistles, you can’t always hear them as well, and you might need some assistance. According to Consumer Reports
, soundbars help boost modern televisions that lack the audio horsepower of older models. Some programming can survive with standard audio, but there are plenty of film scores and live concerts that demand amazing sound delivery.
A few brands providing soundbars include Bose
, and, of course, TCL

fans is that they can expect a seamless connection to their system. So, if you’re a Roku user, you might have already found a strong contender for your soundbar purchase.
Why Is the Roku Connection Important?
