LG 35” 2.1-Channel Sound Bar with Wireless Active Subwoofer and Bluetooth
This sleek sound bar and its companion subwoofer don’t just pump out sound. They also adjust frequencies using Adaptive Sound Control, meaning the bass comes through even louder on hip-hop tracks and the dialogue is clear when you’re watching movies.
Detailed Sound, Minimal Clutter
The 2.1-channel setup elevates your TV’s audio to give you an experience that’s closer to that of surround sound. Laterally placed speakers produce wider distribution and more realistic depth, creating a sense that the action is unfolding around you. The subwoofer intensifies the effect by adding rumbly low notes that most TVs’ built-in speakers can’t match. With only two components to install, the 2.1-channel setup strikes a much cleaner look than full-blown home theater systems.
Wireless Subwoofer: Deep Bass, Flexible Location
The subwoofer heightens the drama of movies and TV shows by sending the thud of footsteps or the roll of thunder rumbling around the room. Its wireless connectivity and single power cord mean it won’t contribute to unsightly cable nests. As an active subwoofer, it contains its own speaker driver and amplifier, which results in bigger, more room-filling sound than that from a passive model.
Bluetooth: Stream Wireless Music, Internet Radio, and Podcasts
Bluetooth streams music wirelessly from a compatible device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music. The wireless connection also frees up your smartphone to multitask, or sit safely in your pocket, unlike the short leash of an audio cable.

At LG, technology alone isn’t enough to make a product great; it must also incorporate a stylish, ergonomic design that makes it a joy to use. This focus has earned the company the 2011 International Forum (iF) design award for products including a compact lightwave oven that fits into narrow spaces, and a slim, metal-framed LED TV. LG also maintains an impressive list of industry firsts: it developed the world’s first 60” plasma TV, internet-connected refrigerator, and dual-core smartphone.
Sleek and compact, sound bars deliver sound quality with a small footprint. This guide will help you determine which model is right for you.
