JBL Bar 3.1 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Blown Away ! I wanted a simple set up for my Game Room and the 70'' LED TV in it . For over a year now I looked at tons of sound bars since I always felt that would be the easiest choice , but I couldn't find anything that sounded great and actually had bass , since the game room is also 25 x 18 . Then after totally giving up I found this , I can't say thank you enough JBL for making a absolutely amazing sound bar system with balls , BIG HUGE BASS BALLS !!!! And the kids and highs are just as amazing sounding !!!!! Don't wait another single moment , if this is what your looking for , get off your butt , and run to the store and buy this system worth every single penny !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to replace an older receiver/speaker set in our small, oddly-shaped living room in order to reduce the number of wires everywhere. So far, very happy with with sound quality. Set up was easy. The room looks super clean now with just the sound bar and the sub tucked away in the corner. One thing I'd like to see are on-screen display of the volume level when using HDMI out to the TV. (I'm using the soundbar as an HDMI switch, so my PS4 and AppleTV go HDMI out to the inputs on the Bar, then Bar HDMI out to the TV). The remote is also a little light, weight-wise. On the plus side, the new AppleTV 4k remote controls the volume on the Bar. Thanks JBL for the super fast shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superiority soundbar in its class! The sales person at best buy convinced me to buy Definitive Technology - W Studio Micro 3.1 My first choice was Definitive and caught my attention since it offers deep deep black Friday discounts but It has a lot of connectivity and compatibility issues during setup. Not compatible with my cable receiver and 78" Samsung uhd remotes and I was having very hard time connecting with subwoofer because my router also wasn't on the compatible list. I finally gave up on Definitive and ended up returning it and got a JBL 3.1 sound bar and it was perfect! Awesome overall sound and powerful bass! most of all, the setup was very friendly with out the mess. I feel confident that it'll serve me well for the years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and value The JBL 3.1 is terrific, super loud with amazing bass that can easily be reduced. There are so many ways to adjust the sound that you have to figure out which sound is best for each type of item viewed, from movies to sports or when watching blue ray. Takes a little time to figure out but definitely not overwhelming. Wondering if there will be surround speakers that i can add like the 5.1 system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sounds fantastic earth shaking bass, realistic surround effects, music is crisp. and most of all my samsung 8 series smart remote operates it thru the hdmi{arc} input, also 4k pass thru from the inputs to the tv (most 4k tv"s only have one true 4k input) had a bose sytem and this sounds better!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Where is the midrange sound?? I buy this bar and its a good stuff. Great design, great deep bass, great loud high sound. BUT!!!! And this is the biggest problem with this stuff: The midrange/mid-tones. JBL staff! Where is the midrange sound? I try many many music and if the music use this midrange Hz bass/sound, i hear only high sound and a minimum / very minimum bass or the low hz bass. I think the soundbar size is very low, and the tweeters is too small and not give mid-tones and the subwoofer bass is too deep so no mid-tones. Sry JBL, but this sound bar is not good for music. :( The virtual sound is terrible, its only a wider stereo. But the soundbar is good for movies. Transformers rulez!! :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immense Just got hold of my 3.1 bar and can safely say I'm far from disappointed. This piece of kit rocks thanks to that 10 inch sub! Thank you jbl for creating a soundbar that is just as versatile for streaming music as it is watching movies. In my opinion it would benefit from an eq rather than relying on the presets...however this is easily overcome by simply adjusting these from the source device.On the whole Great work jbl....love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound! Much better than the competition! It took me the longest time to fish the power cable to the soundbar in my entertainment system. That's not JBL's fault. After getting power to the soundbar....presto! Incredible sound. The wireless bass sound great. I had to actually turn it down a few notches because it throws a lot of air! Excellent system and worth every penny.

Speakers seem to be turning off if there is a pause in sound for a second or two. This is very annoying in menus, pausing, and I am sometimes missing the first beat or 3 in songs when there is a longer pause between tracks. Will there be an update/fix?

what does orange mean??

Asked by: Blocks
An orange light on the back of the subwoofer means that it is currently unpaired with the main soundbar. Please check on pages 4-5 on the owner's manual for instructions on how to pair the soundbar with the subwoofer.

There is no sound from the soundbar when connected to my Toshiba TV (not smart). I connected the HDMI cable from ARC port in the soundbar to HDMI port in the TV (not labeled as ARC). What can be the problem?

Asked by: Tamir
Your input sources (Cable box, DVD/Blu-ray player, gaming console, etc) need to be connected directly to your JBL BAR 3.1 instead of your TV. After this, you just need to change the input source on your TV to the port where you hooked up the HDMI cable from the soundbar. Lastly, you just need to change the input source on your soundbar to the source you wish to tune in to.

I don't hear the middle speakers firing at all, no sound coming out of them. Even when I select voice and no base. Any hints ??? .Also your instruction manual that comes with the 3.1 sound bar is very lite on information...should be more descriptive..

Asked by: BJNJ
Please use the Surround Button on your sound bar remote control to turn the Surround mode from on and off and vice versa. OFF will play in stereo, the center channel won't play. ON, will utilize the center channel.Please also make sure to set the sources audio output to Dolby Digital. If that does not answer your question,please submit a case request at https://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.
