Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOUD & CLEAR Improved my TV sound 100%! I like that I can use my regular remote to control it, but you have to point your remote directly at the Boost for it to respond in sync to the TV sound. Meaning, when I just press volume up on the remote pointing at the TV, the volume does increase, TV will show the volume bar increasing, ex) volume bar at say 65 while the volume is still low on the Boost. Then I lower it back all the way down and point at the Boost, press volume up again, now TV volume bar shows 8 and it's super loud. It just takes time to get used to it. Overall, very happy with my JBL Boost TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, but no stereo image. As far as EQ goes, the speaker sounds great. The problem is that my tv speakers had more of a stereo image than this speaker. It is not very wide, and when you watch tv all of the audio sounds like it's coming from a point source. I would need to split the L and R channels into two of these to get the 5-star experience I was looking for. I'm sure JBL wouldn't mind if I had to buy two ;) As far as recommending this to a friend, I'd recommend something that had some semblance of a stereo image. The linking of the volume control to my tv remote was seamless, and a great feature that I was really looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dynamite in a Compact Size I just got this new Boost TV sound bar as a gift. I already have the JBL SB100 sound bar which is great for a moderately priced sound bar and was anxious to compare this new one to the SB100. I was truly amazed by the sound quality from this little device. Another reviewer stated that it "was as advertised, don't expect anything more" like it was just a slight boost to existing TV speaker sound. That may be true in some respects but you've got to hear it to believe it for yourself. This thing does pack a punch. It sound like it was twice its size. Don't let its size fool you. It has some really good sound quality and will enhance any TV for added sound that you would purchase a sound bar for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plays music without thinking about a speaker! Turns on and off automatic with my tv, turns on and off automatic if I connect my phone with Bluetooth, source selection always automatic, it plays fantastic sound when ever I need it with out thinking about it, no need of a remote control! With appletv remote you can control the speaker volume if you need, as a cord cutter this is the only remote I use. The speaker has also easy access volume buttons. I use TosLink optical and CEC activatet TV. This is worldwide the only TV speaker that dosn't need any user interaction after setup is done, everything automatic. Thats what I expext from a speaker, small form factor, no user interaction needed, great sound when ever you need it. If there would be an extrem version I would upgrade it. Low power consumption in active and standby too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shocked at how easy and nice sound Was considering doing a full on home theater system but with 4 year old twins at home figured that would get destroyed. However, the tv sound was lacking and am so pleasantly pleased with how well this works. Set up was literally plugging in 1 cord to wall socket and optical cord (included) to TV..... that was it. Played for a min with remote buttons and holly cow, movies sound great, Bluetooth to phone was a piece of cake and my wife loves it. Our needs are pretty simple and the sound surpassed what I thought it could do.

If i get 2 connect boost sound bars would they be able to connect via connect+?

Asked by: Jekyllhyde773
You can connect the 2 JBL Boost TV using the Connect feature but you'll need to have bluetooth as the source in order for it to work. The Connect feature does not work when using line inputs from the TV .

You asked, "Can i connect this speaker to my pc, which has a 3.5mm input, and my lg smart tv, which has optical cable input? if so can i do both at the same time?"

Asked by: Joe Cool
Hello, Thank you for your inquiry. This speaker can be connected using the aux or optical connections to the aux and optical audio output connections on any source pc, tv, etc. Both can be connected at the same time but only one source can be set to play at one time. Best Regards.

xfinity remote... went thru process of learn. On/off and volume ok, but all other remote buttons turn volume down. I have reset the boost, turned off the power, but does not 'unlearn' any of the xfinity remote buttons. Any suggestions?

Asked by: GlenD
We are sorry to hear that you are having issues with the learning feature of the BOOSTTV. To ensure that we did the correct reset process, please retry by – While unit is powered on press Volume + and Surround button at the same time for 5 seconds. This should remove all programming in the BOOSTTV. After doing so, test and retry the learning procedure. If none of these work, please submit a case at JBL.com/contactus and our Customer Service Team will be glad to assist you.
