    Great product!!

    • What a sound!
    • You don't have to adjust the volume separately like with an amplifier
    • Cannot be connected with the connect line from JBL
    • The neighbors haven't complained yet!

    Happy with the JBL Bar 3.1 from moment one. I hesitated between this and the 5.1, but the separate speakers are really only for the high sounds and therefore do not work completely as a separate speaker.
    It is a pity that sometimes the connection with the subwoofer is lost. But with the manual you have the bass up and running again.

    • great sound
    • Beautiful design
    • Multiple devices can be connected
    • Switching between TV and Bluetooth does not always go well

    Connecting took a while before everything went smoothly, but after it was successful you also have a really great soundbar with subwoofer!

    Very good value for money soundbar.

    • Very good subwoofer
    • Connect quickly and easily over bluetooth
    • Price
    • Good and clear sound
    • Subwoofer is not the smallest

    I like the JBL bar very much. The soundbar is suspended under the TV using a soundbar bracket (under the TV bracket).
    The sound from the soundbar is good. The bass of the subwoofer is very strong at the factory setting (it is recommended to turn it down a bit).

    Incredible thing. really wow

    What can you say without hearing the set play?
    First and foremost I'd say, aren't you a BASS fan? then this one is not for you. The bass is very, very present. Sometimes TOO present.
    I catch myself often pushing the buttons because sometimes I want more bass and sometimes less bass. Sometimes it dominates!!!
    Some say the woofer is big. Yes, bigger than the average, but when you hear what comes out of that thing, you'll soon forget. Unbelievable ! The bass can also be very very deep. so deep that you can barely hear it, but the space and your whole body feel it.
    And loud? Yes, very loud. Great kit! I think this one plays home a lot of the competition. And in my opinion also has a very nice price. Enough possibilities for connection, although I can't get the center to work. Connecting the woofer literally went without saying for me... Miss a newer model?
    I can keep on practicing but say again, WAAWWWW!!!!!

    • Connecting woofer was a chore

    Top sound and all the connections you could need.
