Movies and TV shows look their best on high-definition, flat-panel TVs. Unfortunately, the speakers that are traditionally found in these screens are small and deliver lackluster sound that hardly matches up to their breathtaking video. Thankfully, the fix is simple, and you don’t need much space at all. The JBL Cinema SB100 is an easy-to-use, two-channel soundbar that features dual 3-1/2-inch (89-millimeter) premium cone woofers, two 1-1/2-inch (38-millimeter) dome tweeters and a built-in 60-watt amplifier. It also features HARMAN Display Surround, which uses proprietary technology to create a room-filling, 3D soundstage from only two channels. Being a plug-and-play solution, the SB100 is easy to set up and it’s designed to complement any flat-panel TVs that are 27 inches (686 millimeter) and larger. For those who want an affordable and easy-to-use solution that ups the ante on their TV’s miniscule, built-in speakers, the JBL Cinema SB100 is hard to beat.
60 watts of built-in power
The Cinema SB100 incorporates amplifiers, controls and left and right woofers and tweeters into a single soundbar. Its built-in amplification simplifies system connections and operation, and offers up to 60 watts of power.
Exclusive HARMAN Display Surround technology
Drawing from HARMAN expertise in movie theater audio, the Cinema SB100 lets you add cinema sound without adding multiple speakers. Employing proprietary HARMAN Display Surround technology, it creates a virtual surround-sound experience while preserving the original audio mix in its timbre and special balance.
Audiophilies respect JBL speakers for their exceptional bass response. And the JBL Cinema SB100 lets you increase low-frequency performance by just touching a button on the included remote control. The added bass impact is ideal for films.
You can place the Cinema SB100 on a shelf or tabletop, or wall-mount it with the hardware included in the SB100 box. A dual-position equalization feature optimizes the soundbar’s performance for any location. So you can position the soundbar where you choose without compromising sound quality.
The Cinema SB100 easily connects to any TV, and includes the cables for the job. Easy to install, the soundbar requires virtually no setup. Just connect and play.
Analog and optical digital audio inputs
The Cinema SB100 features enough inputs to connect a TV and a disc player, satellite tuner or cable tuner to the system. It connects directly to any television and increases convenience – no plugging and unplugging required.
The Cinema SB100 offers an impressive and very affordable audio upgrade for your TV. But if you want to make its authoritative bass performance even better, the soundbar comes with a dedicated subwoofer mono RCA output so you can easily add an external powered subwoofer.
TV volume-learning capability
The Cinema SB100 comes with a credit card-sized remote. However, this impressive soundbar speaker can also “learn” the IR (infrared) volume-control code of your existing TV remote control, taking away the need to keep track of yet another remote for controlling the volume on your soundbar.
