For rumbling bass and realistic sound effects, you’ll need better audio.
People are drawn to soundbars for many reasons. For one, they’re a one-piece audio solution that’s quick to install under the TV or projector screen. And they provide more robust sound than a TV’s built-in speakers. They can look cool depending on the TV, final design, and installation aesthetic. However, it’s best to avoid using one in a high-end home theater design.
While soundbars improve upon TV audio, they won’t provide the immersive wow-factor you desire in a home cinema. It’s best to use a soundbar in the bedroom, kitchen, or other non-primary viewing spaces.
For a home theater, you’d be cutting yourself short not to use a receiver, proper loudspeakers, and a subwoofer for a Dolby ATMOS surround sound setup. As a luxury home theater designer based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and cities worldwide, we’ll share why you should avoid soundbars and how to experience high-end Dolby ATMOS surround sound in your home.
