Design

Searching for a soundbar that fits into your space should be your first consideration. Take into account the amount of space and the placement. If you don’t have much space, perhaps getting a soundbar without an external sub would be a better choice.

Mounting your soundbar on the wall can also free up some extra space on surfaces [1].

Sound

The sound is also a top consideration. Hopefully, your soundbar has impressive subwoofers and maybe even sound modes to help enhance the audio in the right areas. Next, look into the channels. The more channels your soundbar has, the more immersive your experience will be.

If it possesses Dolby DTS or Atmos 3D surround sound, then you can be sure your home theater experience will be at a peak.

Bluetooth/Wifi

Bluetooth is a pretty basic function most soundbars have. You can also pair it to your TV which also supports Bluetooth to minimize clutter. Other than that, Bluetooth is great for streaming content directly to your soundbar.

Connections

How does it connect to your TV? You need to make sure that there are compatible connections on both devices. HDMI ARC is recommended for the best sound. Digital connections are always better than analog as well.

You can also check if your soundbar can be connected to a receiver for amplified sound.

Setup

How easy is it to set it up? If it comes with everything you need in the box, then setup should be very simple.
