Sound bars in general are an easy, space-friendly way to improve TV sound. But the JBL Bar 3.1 solves one very specific problem.

JBL includesa center channel that’s dedicated to making speech loud and clear? even in movies and shows with heavy action.
Powerful sound effects, too
But it’s not all about speech. This system gives youafully-formedhome theaterexperiencewith deep bass and simulated surroundsound. The bar features nine total drivers, positioned to deliversound to a wide viewing area. And the included sub adds hard-hitting emphasis to big effects.
I heard this system briefly in our training room? a large space with a lot of open air. The Bar 3.1 was able to cut through the dead spots with full-bodied, exciting sound. Frankly, the sound added some depth and character to the mindless movie clip I was watching! I paid more attention to the on-screen action than I otherwise would have.

The bar is slim enough to fit under most TVs on a stand, but JBL included a bracket for wall-mounting.You’ll find convenient home theater connections to go with this system’s home theater performance.
