What you would get with the Vizio SB2920-C6 soundbar is a predominantly black design with silver accents that will complement any interior that enhances your TV speakers in a way never experienced before.

Design

Let’s start the Vizio SB2920-C6 review by discussing the design. The soundbar features LED indicators located on the left side of the product. They let you know how your sound bar is performing. To understand what these little lights are signifying, you can refer to the user manual.

The LED indicators will show you if devices are paired and if the system is working flawlessly.

Measuring at just a mere 29 inches, the Vizio soundbar pairs perfectly with TVs that are 32 inches and above. Since most household TVs are around that size or larger, it makes the Vizio the optimal choice.

It is also among the perfect soundbars for smaller TVs, in case you are wondering about our comment on that.

Since it only weighs a minimal 4.5 pounds (2 kg), it’s also one of the lighter soundbars on the market and makes mounting much easier. Even if you don’t mount it, the featherweight sound bar is easy to move around and connect to other TVs in the house.

Features

Placement

With the versatile sound bar, you are able to place it almost anywhere in your living room. Also due to the compact size, it can be easily wall-mounted or placed on a shelf or tabletop. The slim profile makes it easy to find a place for this sound bar.

It doesn’t matter if you have limited space in a condo or more than enough room in a larger mansion, the Vizio SB2920-C6 will fit in seamlessly.

If you do decide to mount the device on the wall and keep the soundbar out of reach and save space, the mounting kit comes with the package as well. You won’t have to spend more time and money looking for compatible hardware.

Sound Quality

Your audio experience will be greatly improved with this 2.0 channel sound bar. It is capable of pumping out 95 dB (decibels) of expansive sound that permeates the room for that home theater experience. However, it’s recommended to not go on full 95 db and keep the decibels under a certain level to protect your hearing [1].

The sound bar operates at a frequency of 70 Hz to 19 kHz and you won’t lose any sound quality when you turn the speaker volume up loud. A device like this would allow you to really enjoy great music without distortion. 

In fact, the sound bar shows barely noticeable harmonic distortion (a maximum of less than 1%) when the sound is amplified, even at 95 dB. You will get crystal clear sound at any speaker volume. 

During our Vizio SB2920-C6 review, we did experience crystal clear audio with this soundbar, comparable to other premium soundbars, but it comes at a relatively affordable price range. The soundbar provides a high bass output for a better home theater experience. But if you’re looking for even more enhanced bass notes and vibrations then you may require an external subwoofer for full home theater simulation.

Bluetooth

When we search for wireless audio connections, Bluetooth connectivity is one that’s most commonly seen in soundbars. The built-in Bluetooth for the Vizio SB2920-C6 soundbar eliminates unsightly wires and reduces the clutter.

Using Bluetooth, you can stream music straight from your mobile devices through the SB2920-C6 2.0 channel soundbar and enjoy the best quality audio from the speaker. With Bluetooth, all the tracks you like can be echoed through the sound bars no matter which room you are in in the house.

In our reviews of many speakers, one advantage of using Bluetooth connectivity in a soundbar is the ability to be paired with an external wireless subwoofer. Pairing with a subwoofer can further produce great sound quality, range, and deep rich bass as well.

Other models from the brand just like the 38-inch Vizio SB3820-C6 soundbar are also bluetooth-enabled.

Surround Sound

The Vizio SB2920-C6 soundbars is designed with top DTS surround sound technology. Your new 2.0 channel soundbar will feature DTS Studio Sound ™, DTS Tru Volume ™, and DTS TruSurround ™.

These are all surround sound formats and technologies that will guarantee unsurpassed sound quality to improve your audio experience. The sounds being played on-screen will come to life and envelop the room. 

The TruSurround and Studio Sound are what takes flat sound for your TV speakers and generate an immersive experience without rear speakers in your system. It creates a virtual surround-sound that offers the audience realistic sound effects that were otherwise unachievable by a small soundbar.

DTS TruVolume is responsible for maintaining the desired and optimal volume for the content onscreen. The settings have to be inputted once and the technology will take care of the rest, giving you consistent volume.

For those that seek an immersive experience that you thought only theaters can offer, you can now take home that technology with you in the form of a small and minimalistic soundbar.

Simple Setup

A product that takes a lot of research and reading to set up will deter most users. The Vizio SB2920-C6 soundbar has everything included to make your life and the setup easy so you don’t have to search for a lot of info and reviews. In the box, you have every cable you need to connect the soundbar to your TV. You have the 3.5mm stereo audio cable, digital coaxial cable, and the digital optical cable. 

We like that there’s a remote control within the package too. 

Using the remote control gives you the great option of controlling all the settings from the palm of your hand without ever having to leave your seat. It’s an easy way to use the device and adjust music or movie settings as you like. The user manual is also included for troubleshooting issues.

The soundbar is designed well and can be wall mounted should you choose to put it up on your wall.

Connections

There are multiple ways for the Vizio SB2920-C6 soundbar to enhance your TV speakers and improve your home theater audio experience. The Vizio sound bar provides multiple connection options for external devices including USB, RCA, 3.5 mm, digital optical input, and coaxial input.

From our careful review, we found that the more connection options a soundbar has to offer, the more versatility it really has within so you can customize your home sound system. Having these connections are best so it’s easy to add an external device like a wired subwoofer. 

Drivers

The Vizio SB2920-C6 is designed with two full range drivers. The driver part of the speaker is responsible for pumping out the sound. Often also referred to as the loudspeaker, the driver creates the audio you hear.

The 2 impressive full-range drivers are able to cover the full range of notes from low to high. This ensures that every last detail of the song you play or the movie you watch is detected by your ears. This kind of range does make the quality a lot better.

To get crystal clear audio not devoid of any details, make sure to get the best high quality full range drivers.

Channels

As a 2.0 channel sound bar, this means your Vizio soundbar is a 2 channel soundbar. The channel refers to where the sound is emitted from on the soundbar. As we see that this is a 2 channel soundbar, the Vizio SB2920-C6 sounding bar has left and right channels that emit quality sound.

Because it comes with full range surround sound technology, even with two channels, this product is still able to simulate immersive sound. With careful review, our comment is that sound bars need at least 5 channels without DTS or Dolby technology to achieve surround sound.

Control

This 2.0 channel sound bar comes with its own remote but also features a control panel on the soundbar itself. This is useful in case you misplace the remote at any time in the future.

Use the remote to set up controls on how you like to hear your music or movies from the speakers.

Warranty

While this isn’t a feature for the product itself, having a 1-year warranty is better as it does put consumers’ minds at ease knowing that if anything is amiss with sound bars, a return and/or replacement is possible. When you make a purchase, it would be best for the products to have a warranty. 

Vizio SB2920-C6 Review Conclusion

The Vizio SB2920-C6 offers an immersive and expansive sound that you previously thought was only attainable in theaters. You’ll see that all the previously mentioned features come nicely packed in a minimalistic package that is fairly affordable.

It provides the best audio quality with DTS technology that will exceed your expectations in terms of cinematic experience. It’s received well in the market and is one of the top products without the heavy price.
