Most of the reviews are correct on the sub woofer output.: it is low. But, I have mine next to the couch, and it does provide "depth of field" and improves the overall experience. I added the wireless rear speakers, and while (also plagued by low volume) substantially enhances the overall performance. The best feature is the center channel: dialog is superb

Great sound through the actual sound bar, center channel a little to dominant, lacking that bass punch. otherwise good sound. The Subwoofer is the big drawback on this product. its volume is weak and doesn't give you that sound you expect to receive from a subwoofer.

Was the extra money worth it?

I was going to get the 2.1 channel samsung system to pair to my new 55" samsung tv. The best buy associate said this 3.1 channel setup was better sound quality due to the center speaker (makes vocals louder) but it seems to be over powered. I had to turn my treble down so I could turn the volume up to get a better hit from the sub. I honestly should have saved the $ and went with the 2..1 channel (older) model. Here's my settings Treble -2 Bass +6 Subwoofer +6

Where's the Bass?

The soundbar and wireless Bluetooth subwoofer paired effortlessly with my new 75" UHD Samsung TV. Unfortunately, it lacks sufficient bass from the subwoofer, even when turned up to max. The only time the bass is evident is at volume levels of 70+.

I got this at Best Buy with the wireless rear speaker. However after trying it out for 2 weeks I just had to return it. Had it connected to my Samsung 49in UHD and wanted it for gaming on Xbox one with the 5.1 Chanel setup. However the Base was just to weak. Had the sub woofer maxed out at +6 and also the Base under setting at +6 but when playing games still could not get the bang. I was planing on replacing my LG 4.1 that's about 2 years old with this one for 5.1 but the Samsung just did not compete. I do really hope Samsung next model will correct this.

Sub Lacks Punch
Author Name: CHWR Rating: 2
I just bought this to upgrade from the 2.1 HW-JM45C/ZA. The sub on that one stopped putting any punch on movies at all. There was a little sound, but not much. This one did not impress me much either. The soundbar is great as it has a center channel to it. But the sub lacks punch to it as well.

Very disappointed in this sound bar. My 5 year old LG was far superior. This is a BAD buy!!!
