What Soundbars are Available from Dell?

Dell has four soundbars available for Dell LCD displays based on the type of display and date of manufacture.

NOTE: Dell displays with built-in speakers have no mount or connections for a soundbar.
  • The AX510PA soundbar for Dell E series displays manufactured before February 2014. These sound bars attach to tabs on the back of the LCD on the bottom. They have an AC power adapter as the older E-series displays have no power connection for speakers. Examples of such displays: E2010H, E2210H, etc.
  • The AX510 soundbar is for Dell P, and U series displays manufactured before February 2014. These sound bars attach to tabs on the back of the LCD. These tabs are on the back of the display along the bottom. The speakers are powered through an AC power jack on the display. Examples of such displays: 2407FP, G2210, U3011, U2711, U2713H, 3008WFP, etc.
    Note: The AX510 uses a power connection from the display. If you are attaching this to a display without a power output connection, it cannot function. Displays without a power connection for speakers require the AX510PA (Power Adapter) soundbar. The power adapter is not sold separately.

  • The AC511 USB soundbar is for Dell displays manufactured after January 2014. These soundbars attach to slots on the bottom edge of the LCD display and is powered by the USB port connection. Examples of such displays: E1914H, E2014H, E2214H, E2314H, E2414H, P2014H, P22014H, P2314H, P2414H, U3214HQ, U2414H, etc.
  • The AE515M USB soundbar is for Dell displays manufactured after January 2014.
NOTE: If you need information about what soundbar works with your display, refer to the user manual for the display on the Dell support website.

If the display documentation has no reference to a soundbar, then Dell has no soundbar solution for that display.

In the Get support for a different product section. Click View Products under Browse for a Product, click Monitors and Projectors, then click Monitors, and then click the model Dell display you own. To the top of the Support Topics & Articles section is a link to Manuals (Figure 1).

NOTE: Dell branded soundbars may work with other brand displays. Those displays do not have power connections for the AX510 and noncompatible mounting clips for any Dell soundbar.

Okay, I Have a Brand New Display, and None of the Soundbar Options Look Like They Apply to My New Display

Current displays, such as the Dell UltraSharp U2417H display, do not have soundbar mounts as they are designed for use in multiple display configurations. Mounting speakers on the display is not an optimal configuration. These displays have an edge to edge view and little edge border.

If your display does not have a user guide reference to a soundbar, other speaker options such as AC411 Bluetooth speakers would be an audio option.
