how to choose a sound bar

If you have purchased a new flat-screen television in the last few years, then you more than likely have brought your TV home only to find that the sound is absolutely horrible.

If this has happened to you, don’t feel bad! It wasn’t your lack of shopping prowess; there’s only so much TV manufacturers can do these days when it comes to projecting audio from the back of extremely thin flat-panel TVs.

Fortunately this problem is fairly easy to solve with today’s sound bars; however, with so many options, making a decision on which one to choose can quickly become overwhelming.

Why You Need a Sound Bar

Sound bars have been gaining in popularity lately due to their affordability and the simple need for these sound systems due to difficulties with projecting sound from new, flat-screen televisions.

We think they’re the perfect accessory for your TV as they offer an enhanced audio experience and tend to be better for most people’s budgets when compared to the cost of surround sound systems.

However, which one should you buy?

At We Mount TVs, we are happy to help you make the best choice for your budget and your needs. We have sound bars that are great for significantly improving the quality of sound from your television. These bars have built in bass and are great for rooms both small and large. Specifically, we are authorized dealers of some incredible brands, including Bose, Yamaha and Polk.

For Sound Bars, Cost Matters!

When it comes to sound bars, you really do get what you pay for. More often than not, anything under $600 for a sound bar is likely is a waste of money. Sure, you can get one that sounds decent for less, but it will lack the clarity, bass response, and soundstage of a sound bar in the $1,000+ price range.

Look at it this way, would you put $50 rims on your BMW? Of course not! Tires are essential for getting the most out of your BMW. The same is true when it comes to sound bars. If you buy a nice, expensive television, equipping that TV with a $200 sound bar is the equivalent of putting $50 tires on your new BMW.

Getting the Most Bang for Your Buck

We’ve found that Bose and Yamaha are the best for your money – they offer clearer voices and true surround sound effect, all from a single bar. Obviously, a surround system is ultimately better, but it is also more expensive. Fortunately, there are some great Bose and Yamaha sound bars that will give you incredible sound at a price you can afford!

These two brands also offer some of the best features, such as wireless music streaming, Bluetooth connectivity, built-in subwoofers, and 4K compatibility (learn more about 4K TVs here). Bose even offers a universal remote control to pair up with your TV and sound bar so you’ve got less to keep up with.

What’s even better is that if you buy your sound bar from We Mount TVs, we’ll match any price! We’ll also install it and calibrate it to your particular needs for free – other places will charge $200+ for that service
