The JBL Bar 2.1 Deep Bass provides you with a simple solution. It works as a single soundbar and wireless subwoofer package with Bluetooth connectivity for streaming.
There will be not fancy video found on the Roku Smart Soundbar or the JBL Link Bar, no multi-room audio like the Sonos Beam or no integrated Alexa or Google Assistant. But it sounds good thanks to its deep bass.
The JBL generates more bombast in your TV watching than other options, such as the Polk Signa S3 or the Vizio V21. The larger sub provides the JBL with a really impressive dynamic range, which is truly useful for blockbuster movies. However, the soundbar does not have refinement and atmosphere but its pure brawn.
In spite of the fact that the JBL Bar 2.1 Deep Bass may not be as ideal as the Vizio V21, it works effectively for your movies.
In spite of the fact that this device has a similar name, the JBL Bar 2.1 Deep Bass is different from the previous version: JBL Bar 2.1, and it comes with various features such as a new sub and a simple remote control. The main speaker is not large, with a set of controls placed on the top side for volume, power and source, an LED readout offering easily understandable content.
While some soundbars have Chromecast or AirPlay Wi-Fi streaming, the JBL is only restricted to Bluetooth for playing songs from your phone. It is also equipped with optical digital, two HDMI inputs and Dolby Digital decoding. The speakers of this soundbar have four full-range drivers along with two 1-inch tweeters.
The wireless subwoofer is measured in at 9 inches square and 14.6 inches tall with a rear-mounted port, including a 6.5-inch driver like you can see from the Xbox Series X. the control scheme includes a remote with only the subwoofer level and volume. There are also no conventional sound modes such as Movie, Music and Voice. You are able to change the mode while it is not easy. The soundbar is set in the smart mode by default.
