Soundbar for a 65 Inch TV Buying Guide

Soundbars of a smaller size can have amazing sound as well, but the reason why larger ones are needed with larger TVs is because you need it to be able to have better sound than your default TV speakers.

A larger TV will have larger speakers, so only a larger soundbar can match and surpass your factory ones. Let’s take a look at what to look for.

Size

For a 65 inch TV, which is considered quite large, you’ll also need a soundbar on the larger side. We are talking about a soundbar that measures 36 inches and over. Not only will it have better sound, but it will look better as well.

Connections

Does it support wireless connections such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi? Having a wireless connection gives you another option in terms of setting up and can minimize clutter.

Not only that, but it allows you to control your soundbar with your phone if it has a compatible app that can stream content.

Sound

If bass matters to you [1], look for a soundbar with a wireless subwoofer. Some soundbars can have the sub built-in, but in no way will it match a larger and more powerful external one.

Does it have surround sound? DTS Virtual and Dolby Atmos technology are coveted and the industry standard for home theater surround sound.

Also, look at the sound modes. Sound modes allow the soundbar to automatically tune itself to the best setting depending on the content being played.

Design and Placement

If you have space for a 65 inch TV, we’re assuming that you will also have enough room to accommodate a larger soundbar. However, you still have to take into consideration the placement of the soundbar and the size to match your room, especially if it has a separate sub.

Our Top Pick: Yamaha Audio YAS-209BL Soundbar

The competition is tough since all the options are amazing, but the Yamaha soundbar takes the top spot. With voice enhancement and Amazon Alexa built-in to make your life easier as well as DTS X virtual 3D surround sound, it will bring your 65 inch TV to life.
