3.0 out of 5 stars Ambiguous Performance, May 8, 2012
This review is from: LG NB3520A 300W Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (2012 Model) (Electronics)
1. Features: Bluetooth is great. Works flawlessly w my iPhone. Pre-designed EQs sound good and offer variety. "3D Surround" sounds great. Seamlessly integrates w TV by detecting presence of optical signal and turning on or off automatically. *Wireless subwoofer is cool, but may contribute to the deficiency of adequate bass performance.

2. Sound: Mids and highs sound crystal clear. Pretty amazing actually. Breadth of the mids and highs is truly impressive. Bass performance is very deficient--much less bass performance than with the cheap $100 system I replaced. This is disappointing. I suspect this may be due to the subwoofer's wireless status--perhaps it just can't communicate the bass response as well wirelessly. (?)

3. Appearance: High-quality materials. Very attractive. Glowing LED light on subwoofer is extremely annoying.

4. Overall: Ambiguous performance that I personally can live with. Wish there was more bass presence. But the rest of the spectrum sounds awesome.

Have you tried increasing the subwoofer volume? That made a big difference for me.

Try to put your subwoofer facing a corner of the room, it will make the bass hit harder because of the acustic.

Try placing the subwoofer in a corner facing the wall as Jorge mentioned you will notice the difference, I had to lower the level of mine to -2 since the bass was too much.

I'm not sure where you get "30 Watts total" from, but LG's own site states 300W, and the tech specs add up to 300W. It states the main unit as "80W x2," for a total of 160W, and the sub is listed at 140W. 140+160=300. Either you're in a thread about the wrong product, or you're just posting false information to mislead people here. This is about the LG NB3520A.

The 30W specification is max load (i.e. Bluetooth transmitting, main unit on, subwoofer on) with no sound transmitting. Obviously the system will draw more power (300W min as specified) when operating.
