A sound bar is an all-in-one speaker system that delivers high-quality sound without requiring the space, complexity and expense of a home theater receiver and surround sound speaker setup. A sound bar’s long, slender cabinet contains multiple speakers, and may provide either stereo or simulated surround sound.

The LG SJ4Y has a separate subwoofer for producing deep bass, which adds impact to movie soundtracks and music.

This guide will walk you through listening to music with your LG SJ4Y soundbar.
