WIRELESS SUB WOOFER HAS GREAT BASS and GOOD SOUND BAR,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LG NB3520A 300W Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (2012 Model) (Electronics)
I do like it but the sound bar seems to produce some static noise with certain songs, i,e, played from You Tube music videos or TV shows when connected to your TV so you have to be careful because of the sound pitch not being controlled and would be better if you could make manual level sound adjustments instead of having a preset button for sounds from the remote, to help with that part, otherwise 5 stars.
I was actually surprised by how the Pandora music play lists, (from my TV), had great sound and was very crisp so that was nice to hear!
The other features work great too.
It seems louder than 300W, (my living room is small though so maybe that's why).
I do love the fact that there are no messy speaker wires and it comes with 1 five foot long audio cord. The wireless sub woofer works and sounds great.

If you click on the specifications (pdf) link; where it says under additional features in the product description, you will see that the front soundbar output is 80W x 2 =160W + 140W from the subwoofer =300W. Maybe you read the description wrong because it does say under power for energy consumption 30W total power used to run it and when the power is off under 0.5W. The soundbar does produce the root mean squared power off the built in amplifier to run 300W so maybe you just miss read something. Even the big box it came in advertises on the front 300W and it really does produce that much sound.

Well, my ears tell me differently from the sound coming out of it! I like what I bought off of Amazon and that's why I shared my review, based on my own personal experience with the product! If I had thought this was a crappy soundbar and subwoofer system I would have posted that. Maybe instead of questioning my review you should call LG and debate with them about this and tell them how wrong they are? At least 20 people thought my review was helpful and your 1 person who didn't so isn't that the whole point of posting a review? Seems like you get your kicks off of trying to make people wrong about what they post or maybe you're the kind of person that always has to have the last word?

Well, I was trying to uncover the real truth about the quality of your sound bar. Lanya, you confirmed to me that the power consumption in the specs on the LG website is 30 Watts, which is 10 times less than the 300 Watt RMS output power stated in the Amazon specs.
That is all I need to know as a consumer. Yes, it is a crappy sound bar and a subwoofer because it cannot achieve any decent volume levels or have proper bass impact even in a medium size room. $300 dollars for 30 Watts is a lousy deal.
