Sound bar that offers 3D sound and plug-and-play convenience – no additional speakers needed.

Premium soundbar that provides surround-sound entertainment without the clutter.
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 lacklustre 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.

Quick Start Guide
Hear the truth.
Even if you’ve never owned a JBL product, you’ve almost certainly heard the JBL sound. It rings out loud and clear from the massive JBL loudspeaker arrays that hang in stadiums, sports arenas and concert venues everywhere. It literally surrounds you in more than 50 percent of all movie theaters worldwide, including many with THX certification (a standard of realism that JBL engineering helped pioneer in 1983). Chances are, many of your favourite songs and movie soundtracks were mixed and mastered on JBL studio monitors – they’ve been the choice of audio professionals for more than 60 years. But you don’t have to venture far from home to experience the legendary power, clarity and technical accuracy of the JBL sound. It’s available in exceptional home entertainment systems that incorporate many of the same advanced technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques that we originally developed for professional systems. It’s even available in lightweight, portable packages that you and your friends can enjoy anywhere.
