Additional InformationHigh-definition, flat-panel TVs are great for watching movies and TV shows.

For your favorite movies, TV shows, video games and music, the JBL Cinema SB100 is an easy-to-use, two-channel soundbar that offers up to 60 watts of amplified power. It features dual 3-1/2-inch (89-millimeter) premium cone woofers, two 1-1/2-inch (38-millimeter) dome tweeters, exclusive HARMAN Display surround technology that creates a room-filling, 3D soundstage from only two channels, a subwoofer output to add more bass, and dual-position equalization that optimizes the sound based on the speaker’s location. Not only does the Cinema SB100 sound great, it looks great, too. It’s designed to best complement flat-panel TV screens that are 27 inches (686 millimeters) and larger. And with its elegant, black enclosure, it’s sure to grace any listening space. For those who want great sound for their home theater but don’t want to break the bank, spend time installing multiple speakers or make the space for them, the SB100 is the way to go. Simply plug it in and press play.
Movies and TV shows look their best on high-definition, flat-panel TVs. Unfortunately, the speakers that are traditionally found in these screens are small and deliver lackluster sound that hardly matches up to their breathtaking video. Thankfully, the fix is simple, and you don’t need much space at all. The JBL Cinema SB100 is an easy-to-use, two-channel soundbar that features dual 3-1/2-inch (89-millimeter) premium cone woofers, two 1-1/2-inch (38-millimeter) dome tweeters and a built-in 60-watt amplifier. It also features HARMAN Display Surround, which uses proprietary technology to create a room-filling, 3D soundstage from only two channels. Being a plug-and-play solution, the SB100 is easy to set up and it’s designed to complement any flat-panel TVs that are 27 inches (686 millimeter) and larger. For those who want an affordable and easy-to-use solution that ups the ante on their TV’s miniscule, built-in speakers, the JBL Cinema SB100 is hard to beat.

- 60 watts of built-in power
- The Cinema SB100 incorporates amplifiers, controls and left and right woofers and tweeters into a single soundbar. Its built-in amplification simplifies system connections and operation, and offers up to 60 watts of power.
- Exclusive HARMAN Display Surround technology
- Drawing from HARMAN expertise in movie theater audio, the Cinema SB100 lets you add cinema sound without adding multiple speakers. Employing proprietary HARMAN Display Surround technology, it creates a virtual surround-sound experience while preserving the original audio mix in its timbre and special balance.
- Bass boost
- Audiophilies respect JBL speakers for their exceptional bass response. And the JBL Cinema SB100 lets you increase low-frequency performance by just touching a button on the included remote control. The added bass impact is ideal for films.
- Dual-position equalization
- You can place the Cinema SB100 on a shelf or tabletop, or wall-mount it with the hardware included in the SB100 box. A dual-position equalization feature optimizes the soundbar’s performance for any location. So you can position the soundbar where you choose without compromising sound quality.

- Subwoofer output
- The Cinema SB100 offers an impressive and very affordable audio upgrade for your TV. But if you want to make its authoritative bass performance even better, the soundbar comes with a dedicated subwoofer mono RCA output so you can easily add an external powered subwoofer.
- TV volume-learning capability
- The Cinema SB100 comes with a credit card-sized remote. However, this impressive soundbar speaker can also “learn” the IR (infrared) volume-control code of your existing TV remote control, taking away the need to keep track of yet another remote for controlling the volume on your soundbar.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JBri from Medicore performance The soundbar did not greatly enhance the television sound. The Bass boost was barely noticeable, and the instructions were inadequate. On top of that, the unit stopped putting out sound after 2 weeks. The unit looks cool and it is sized well, but the performance is very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seattle51 from Bought on Sale for $89 After paying only $89 dollars for this, I wasnt expecting to much. It sounds pretty good by itself. I paired it with a 12" subwoofer, and it makes a huge difference. Sounds Fantastic. Im glad I bought this. 1000% better than the tinny sounding speakers in my tv.

Rated 4 out of 5 by antbrown87 from Solid Center Speaker This center speaker is incredibly easy to hook up. You don't need a receiver which is great. It could be a little bit more clear to help hear voices during movies but overall it is very powerful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tickedoff from Won't stay on! These speakers have an "auto-off" feature that will turn the speakers off inexplicably when you are in the middle of a show. There is nothing you can do to turn this feature off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by wade628 from great Soundbar! The SB100 adds great sound to your TV. You can hear lower and fuller sounds that you did not hear with the TV alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Erd03 from Works great right out of the box! I gave this for a Christmas gift and he loves it. It could be better only if it had a sub woofer.
