Nice sound bar

jmsdoc, Crutchfield
10 April 2013
  • Summary: This sound bar is certainly an improvement over my Sony TV's speakers. At first, I could not get my cable remote to control the volume nor could I get the on-screen display to work. A 10 minute call to Crutchfield Support resolved both issues. Turns out that I was misreading the setup instructions. My initial setup had the sub positions behind the seating area in the room.
  • Pros: Good looks Synching the sub was a snap Sounds great Bluetooth allows me to stream music from my phone or tablet
  • Cons: Setup directions too vague and not descriptive enough More functionality from the remote

Good value

Rick, Crutchfield
31 March 2013
  • Summary: Very listenable soundbar/sub for the price. While it will never fool you into thinking that you have a surround system, the front soundstage is wide. Works fairly well with music, very nicely with movies. The sub does a decent job with all but deep bass. Highs are soft but pleasant. Easy setup.
  • Pros: Clean, decent bass, easy to use.
  • Cons: Remote could be better.

As advertised

Sam, Crutchfield
16 March 2013
  • Summary: Performs as advertised. Very easy to setup. Very deep bass and handles both music and movies effectively. Would give it five stars but for inability to select the bluetooth source on the remote.
  • Pros: Easy set up Deep bass
  • Cons: Inability to select Bluetooth on the remote.

JBL Cinema SB 400

Ted M., Crutchfield
30 January 2013
  • Summary: A very attractive installation and generally great sound. However, I'm a little disappointed with its treble response. As I age, my high frequency hearing is diminishing. Consequently, I need additional treble to clearly understand the spoken word. I've not been able to adjust the treble level high enough. The bass can blast us out of the room but, I'd trade some of that bass response for more treble.
  • Pros: Great bass effects and generally good sound
  • Cons: Treble level can not be adjusted high enough to satisfy me.

JBL SB400 "pop" solved

GS, Crutchfield
30 January 2013
  • Summary: Initially I was very unhappy with JBL's SB400. My set-up is DirecTV HD/DVR receiver and ROKU to Soundbar via HDMI and HDMI Output to Samsung LCD TV. The problem was occasional loud "pops" that were unpredictable but frequent enough to make it unlistenable. It even drove my dog out of the room. I searched online for the problem and found others complaining of same issue, but no solutions.

Good sound

Baxtah, Crutchfield
30 January 2013
  • Summary: Good sound. Its not a receiver amp and 7.1 separate speaker system, but its a whole lot better than the TV alone. The sub Woofer is a must, I forgot how it ads to the scare factory in horror movies.
  • Pros: Size alone. If your buying a sound bar for its sound quality you will be disappointed.
  • Cons: The one cable system to TV system... Had to install the whole system twice. My cables were to short as a result. Do not expect to run the one cable to just the tv. and stereo, bluray and cable box to the sound bar... doesn't work, all kinds of problems.

Sounds Great but...

Anonymous, Crutchfield
22 January 2013
  • Summary: This thing sounds great. Very pleased with the sound with music and movies. Reading other reviews I didn't think much of the Bluetooth not something you could switch from the remote but do admit it is disappointing that you can't switch to Bluetooth. I didn't see any other reviews that mentioned it can't be controlled by a DirecTV remote, so if this is a deal breaker for you, let it be known you can't control the sound bar with you DirecTV remote.
  • Pros: Looks and sounds great. Bass level can be adjusted.
  • Cons: Can't be programmed to work with a DirecTV remote.

Helt grei lydplanke

Lillejon, netonnet.no

  • Conclusion: Fikk selv tips om denne planken, enkel å sette opp, spiller veldig høyt iforhold til størrelsen. -Gode tilkoblingsmuligheter -kort rekkeveidde på subben og bluetooth -fjernkontrollen er liten, å dermed ganske enkel å rote bort -lite justeringsmuligheter mtp lyd -på medium volum så er bassen meget bra, savner litt mellomtone, diskanten kan vare litt skrikete på enkelte toner -på full guffe så er lyden HØY, desverre henger ikke subben like godt med her.
