Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice sound quality but have a really big problem System is ok. Dialog sounds are too quiet. Sound is really nice, specially bass BUT... This system has rally awful bug with audio delay when it starts to play. You won't hear first 1 second of sound. For example you will never hear sound effects in main menu on Playstation 4. You will miss a few words on beginning of youtube video. Sometimes it won't play some sounds on really quiet moment in movies (like horrors). This issue is super frustrating and JBL says that everything is ok. Not cool. You can find more info about this issue on the internet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst remote in the history of Hi Fi I went for the more expensive model and it works great until you accidentally touch the wrong button on the remote control. The buttons are unreadable (the font is < 3 point so you cannot figure out what button to use unless you have very bright lights on) and the remote looks the same whether right-side or wrong-side up . Right-side up, you can push the volume, but upside down, you change the input. Once you hit the wrong button it takes multiple attempts to right it again. It is without a doubt it is the most useless and frustrating remote control I have encountered in my 55 years on this planet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good system, multiple inputs, horrible remote I love JBL. I was running a Yamaha YAS 101 and decided I need multiple HDMI ports for my projector. The SB 450 fit the bill. The good is that 3 HDMI ports going out to one source, makes tidying up your cable management so simple and easy. The system simply works, unobtrusive, good sound quality and the wireless subwoofer is a very nice touch. The remote programming is not bad, but to use all the functions you require the remote. The remote is horrible, it is so horrible I wanted to return the whole system. I don't understand why JBL created such a cheap remote. It is tiny, unresponsive, low range and super ugly. It doesn't match the premium quality of the system. The other downside is that if you have very low sounds, the system doesn't seem to pick them up and they are out of range, the quality of the spoken voices is very low, you have to drop the subwoofer volume and raise the normal volume to get to hear them. overall I won't buy any JBL home theatre products again, I should have waiting for the Yamaha equivalent.

I can't understand for a £500 system you get the worse remote in history! only had the system for 4 weeks and the remote has stopped working, brought from Richer Sounds in Maidstone and even they agree with the poor design of the remote. even £40 argos systems come better equipped.

Hi, i just got the new SB450 . how i can now that the &quot;Harman Volume&quot; is on or off? how i can now if thier is any firmware update update ? do you have any app that work with SB450 ?

Asked by: schnitz
You can turn Audio Feedback ON with the remote control to hear an audible indication for Harman Volume ON/OFF settings. As of the moment there is no firmware update for the SB450. You can check our website www.jbl.com from time to time to check if we are going to release a firmware update for SB450. The JBL CONNECT app will not work with this speaker, nor will it support stereo music playback when linking two SB 450s together. The JBL CONNECT feature of the SB450 will only let you wirelessly daisy chain two speakers.

Which one is the better option &nbsp;Thru HDMI cable or the OPTIC cable to connect to TV

Asked by: Satyender
Both HDMI and optical pass digital audio from one device to another. Both are better than analog (the red and white cables). Both can pass multi-channel audio. The biggest difference is that HDMI can pass higher-resolution audio In terms of simplicity, HDMI also passes video signals. So if you want just a single cable between two devices, HDMI would be better.

My subwoofer keeps cutting out and searching for connection while streaming a movie threw my xbox one. Why is this happening is it a factory mess up?

Asked by: matthew watkins
There are a few possible causes to this. This can possibly occur due to an interference (other wireless devices or large solid objects) that may affect the signal. Another would be the distance between the devices, the maximum range for is 10m (~32ft) in an ideal set-up. On a normal home though, where interference is unavoidable, this distance decreases significantly. If these things has been eliminated and you are still having issues, please submit a case at jbl.com/contactus and our Customer Service Team will be glad to assist you.

Hello, I have the Cinema SB 450 and the audio and video are out of sync. How can I fix this? Thanks

Asked by: mahvelus
I am so sorry if you are having issues with SB 450. Let us try to do this following troubleshooting steps: - Check to see if it happens with all source devices (TV, BluRay, DVD, etc.). If it only happens with one device and not the other, the issue may be with that device. - Make sure you do not have any HDMI adapters or splitters. These can cause issues with video and audio. - Please also check your TV A/V sync settings as well.

I have a problem with my JBL Cinema SB450 where it keeps turning off after +\- 5 minutes when using it in AUX mode. The bluetooth setting works perfectly and does not turn off by itself. Does anyone have an idea why this is happening? Thank you :)

Asked by: Srinivasan11
Hi, usually the soundbar has a feature which it would automatically turn off after a few minutes of inactivity, Another reason aside from that would be that the source's volume is too low for the soundbar to accept it as an audio signal and it shuts off over time. A good way to prevent that would be to turn up the volume of the source to an audible level and just adjust the remaining volume on the soundbar. If this does not answer your question,Please 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.

You would only be allowed to connect a single JBL Flip 3 using the JBL Connect feature. Therefore, Sb 450 cannot be setup as a 5.1 system.

The only way I get sound is thru the digital optical cable. If I use any HDM port we get no sound no matter what input I switch it to. What's up

Asked by: Mikey5
This can be caused by the formatting that your source device is using and the TV can accept and output. If your source device (Bluray, gaming console, DVD..) is set to output Dolby Digital/DTS, and your TV can only output two-channel digital signal (PCM) when connected via HDMI-ARC, this requires the TV to process the signal before it sends it to the SB450. Try to set your source device to send PCM signals only. This should fix your issue.

Asked by: Ryvendell
I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue. This may be due to your HDMI cables. All cables attached to the HDMI inputs of the SB450 needs to be High speed cables. If your cables do not meet these requirement, then you will experience unstable connection from source to your TV. Also, you can try resetting the SB450 by pressing and holding Volume+ and Virtual Surround buttons for 5 seconds while it's on.

If there is no separate &quot;center&quot; channel speaker, where does the dialogue and center sound go? Wouldn't it sound better with a dedicated center speaker? Also, it doesn't appear to have Dolby TrueHD, DTS, etc. decoding? Thank you.

Asked by: jay271234
The SB 450 is a 2.1 speaker system that has 4 woofers and 2 tweeters on each channel. Since this is a stereo speaker, the SB450 does not have a center channel nor is it capable of being a 5.1 sound system. To compensate, SB450 can create a virtual surround sound effect using its left and right channels. The SB450 does have Dolby audio, but does not support Dolby TrueHD nor DTS.
