Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent performance for the price Decent performance for the price Having used the JBL Bar 2.1 for a few weeks now, I am reasonably pleased with it. I currently have a 5.1 system and a more expensive soundbar, so I don’t have much comparison in this price range. The JBL bar is well specced for its price, there are plenty of inputs and having HDMI Arc is always great. While it doesn’t have WiFi and streaming like some more expensive brands the Bluetooth is more than adequate for most cases. Setting up the JBL Bar was extremely easy, just plug it in and away you go. Selecting your inputs is quite straightforward, and the remote control is simple and easy to use. The soundbar is a decent size, slightly longer than the 40” screen I tried it out on. The subwoofer is quite small as far as subs go, and thanks to the wireless connection you can tuck it away in the corner. The main selling point for me was the included sub.woofer, my other soundbar lacks it, and while the mids and highs sound fantastic, it just lacks that oomph a subwoofer provides. I did find I had to turn the bass up a bit to get it to my liking, but once I did the bass in movies and the TV was just about right. Unfortunately the mids and highs are not as good as my other soundbar (which costs twice as much), it can be a little tinny and harsh sometimes, but in general, it is decent and a massive upgrade to the TV speakers. While the mids and highs can be a little harsh I actually prefer this system based on the price and the decent bass performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound I was very impressed with the JBL sound bar the sound quality is very impressive and the volume is plenty loud enough I have not had it at maximum volume even listening to music. The set up is very easy and also works well with my Amazon echo through the Bluetooth function. Fantastic product, would recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value for Money Great value for money especially seen as it comes with the subwoofer included. Works really well with other speakers in the JBL range and the app is really useful too. The only negative I would say is the one I received came with an EU plug so I had to get a UK adapter, easily solved though. The sound quality is great and for the price it definitely stands out compared to other brands on the market.

How do you pair the sound bar and sub.

Asked by: Stevebekka
Please follow these steps to pair the subwoofer to the soundbar -First, turn on the soundbar and the subwoofer. If the connection is lost, the LED indicator on the subwoofer blinks slowly.  -Second, press the CONNECT button on the subwoofer to enter pairing mode. The LED indicator on the subwoofer blinks quickly.  -Third, press and hold the DIM DISPLAY button on the remote control for 5 seconds, followed by short press on BASS+, and BASS- button in sequence. Panel display will show “PAIRING”.  -If pairing succeeds, the LED indicator on the subwoofer lights up, and the soundbar display will show "DONE”. If pairing fails, the indicator on the subwoofer blinks slowly.  -Lastly, if the pairing fails, repeat the steps above for 2 more times and submit a case request at https://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

Why doesn’t this system come with a manual? The quick start manual is inadequate to say the least. Where is the complete online manual on your website? It should be here.

Hi,  Are there any rear speakers I could connect to this system? 

Asked by: LandonC
Unfortunately there are no speakers you can connect to the JBL BAR 2.1 since it's only for a 2.1 surround.

Can I get additional bluetooth speakers that will connect to my JBL 2.1 soundbar? Like 2 desktop speakers that will enhance the surround sound?

Asked by: bruceh
The JBL Bar 2.1 soundbar's Bluetooth functions only as a receiver and not a transmitter. It can only receive signals from an audio source such as a smartphone or a laptop, but it cannot transmit audio to another Bluetooth speaker.
