Samsung 36” Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (Mfr. Refurb.)
While this 2.1-channel sound bar delivers balanced audio through right and left speakers, the active subwoofer pumps out deep bass, giving a home entertainment setup a dynamic, cinematic quality.
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.

In the 70 years of its existence, Samsung has grown into an international company with interests spanning from home electronics to skyscraper construction. The company takes its global role seriously, working to improve communities with both its financial support and the expertise of its talented employees. The company’s Solve for Tomorrow competition, for instance, challenges kids to create videos that demonstrate how science and math can be used in new ways to improve their local environment. After screening the videos of thousands of worthy entrants and dozens of confused American Idol hopefuls, Samsung chooses five winners, whose schools each receive $110,000 in technology. Solve for Tomorrow is just one of the company’s outreach initiatives, which align with its philosophy to help build a “better global society.”
