JBL Bar 2.1 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good Packs plenty of power for our living room with high ceilings. Am sure the 3.1 and up are super good though don't think my wife would like those due to how loud it could get. This one can fill the room with sound easily, base is very good, highs very good, and of course being JBL in itself let's you know the good quality to expect. Could have better instructions with it though just came to JBL site and downloaded then. Setup very easy, and up and going in under 5 minutes. First connect to the tv takes several seconds before heard sound, though just on initial setup. Very happy with it and when comes to audio it is hard to beat JBL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing sound Great clarity and bass. My kids use it for Just Dance and other Ps4 games as well as TV and movies. Uses HDMI or optical to connect to TV. I love the readout on the bar itself. I keep having audio sync issues though. The sound is behind the mouth moving. I must enable and disable my TV sound sync to fix it. It's either a software issue or the bar is fighting with my LG 4K TV sync since both the bar and the TV have sync options. Bottom line though is that it sounds really really good and hearing surround from a bar under the TV is really a trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Product Offers great sound for an affordable cost. Very impressed with the bass quality and high volume clarity for being the lowest model that JBL carries. Wall mounting was extremely quick and easy. It has all the ports and functions you would need for a soundbar to have. Obviously this system doesn’t compare to higher end home theaters, but this is the best 2.1 soundbar system compared to other brand names.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and features Great sound for the size and the price of this soundbar. I chose it over others because it has HDMI in and out which I need for my AppleTV. A slight problem which I have read other soundbars have as well, is that when audio is sent from Apple TV to soundbar, there is a second of silence before the soundbar detects the audio signal. After 1 second the display shows PCM and audio suddenly tuns on, in the middle of whatever sound is currently playing. This results in a jarring audio experience any time you pause for a second and then move the apple TV cursor around to select apps. It would be great if you could set the JBL soundbar to remain in PCM mode at all times intsead of constantly reverting to its un-named default sound transfer codec. I still give it 5 stars because this is a minor enough annoyance and everything else is as good as I could ever ask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful sound I recently bought this for music and video games, anyone who says that this is underpowered doesn’t know what they’re talking about, the 200 watt subwoofer can be felt by my feet on the 2nd floor,(bar is on 1st floor) when it is on half volume. Full volume starts shaking things and the house rattles. The bass is punchy and the mids are really there in video games or tv. I would definetly recommend for a small room or even a medium size room like mine.

Can Support 220V?

Asked by: chris1323
Hi there, the JBL Bar 2.1 sold in this US site are US models, so they are 110 volt versions. You will need a 220V to 110V step down transformer in order to use the 110V Bar 2.1 without any problems in a 220V area or simply buy the Bar 2.1 locally to get the 220V version.

Can existing in ceiling surround speakers be wired to this?

Asked by: guyrelax
Thanks for your interest in our product. Unfortunately, our JBL Bar 2.1 is a standalone soundbar that does not have speaker terminals or inputs to connect additional speakers.

Is this 220v power input compatible?

Asked by: Chang Weon
The JBL Bar 2.1 sold in this US site are US models, so they are 110 volt versions. You will need a 240V to 110V step down transformer in order to use the 110V Bar 3.1 without any problems in a 240V area or you can get from a local store which has a 220V version.

hello, my question is if all soundbars (3.1 and 5.1) have the same position of the mount brackets for the wall. Currently I have 2.1 and if I want to upgrade to 5.1 or 3.1, do I have to make new holes in the wall? Have a nice day, GS.

Asked by: gseu
BAR 2.1 and 3.1 share the same exact measurements and system. BAR 5.1 is it's own. If you have the Bar 2.1 ,you can upgrade to the Bar 3.1 without changing anything. If you want to upgrade to the Bar 5.1, you'll need to modify the mounting.

Can the 2.1 soundbar be connected to an amazon echo

Asked by: Ribane
Hi! As far as what we have, the Bar 2.1 will work fine with an Amazon Echo Dot. For compatibility of other Amazon Echo products with the JBL Bar 2.1, it would be best for you to reach out to Amazon directly for more information.

What is the recommended orientation of the subwoofer port (toward listener & away from the listener)?  The pictures in user manual are not clear. Other “older” JBL speaker models show pictures & recommend the port face the listener.
