How to Hook Up a Sound Bar

By Dean Lee

A sound bar is a single speaker that allows you to have home theater-like sound. A sound bar does not however, provide surround sound. Many sound bar systems also include a subwoofer, which helps with bass and gives sounds an extra kick. Setting up a sound bar is relatively easy because it is a single speaker as compared to surround sound systems which require connecting the speakers correctly into the receiver with speaker wire.
