LG TV external sound system

Post by Midsman » Tue Apr 19, 2016 11:38 am

I purchased a LG TV just over a year ago from PowerBuy.The speaker in the back of the tv has gone down.PowerBuy said only 1 year warranty, but when I complained they said they would fix for free but need to send to bkk for 1 month.

When there is any background music or crowd noise at sport it is a loud boom boom distorting people talking.

I was wondering if I purchased a sound surround system does it cancel out the speaker at the back of the tv ?

Regards in advance for any info

Yes, it can be done - what you buy will depend on how good the TV is, i.e. what connections it provides.
What LG model do you have?

Personally, I'd recommend a sound bar - far easier installation (also with older model tv's) and a much improved sound to the standard tv speaker. The tv speaker is not cancelled as such - you just need to mute it! :wink:

D-LED 3D 55inch LG 55LB670T-smart tv



It has a optional external audio connection, so I think you have answered my question.

Thankyou

Just been on Advanced Settings on tv and seen the mute option etc.

Will purchase a LG soundbar tomorrow.

Thanks for your help and advice gentlemen.

^ Very much welcome, and I hope you get as much enjoyment out of the "Sound Bar System" as I have had - great effects for sport and cinema.... :thumb:

What sort of price are we looking at or is there a big range from top to bottom spec?

I guess the simple answer is that with most other things, "You get what you pay for..." - they're not what you would call cheap, but IMHO far cheaper and better value than the "surround sound systems". I have a Samsung unit which I bought as an "Instore Ex-demonstrator" for around £250 in the UK, which is fairly high-end and would normally sell at around the £400 mark. I'm sure you'll get them cheaper, but you need to do some research.

If you're anything like me - love for movies/live sport etc. - they are well worth the money.

You can get some high end sound bars from companies like Yamaha but I paid about 12,000 bt for an LG one with a separate sub woofer which is pretty good and perfectly adequate for most needs. I think they start at about 5,000bt for a basic one and over ten times that for the very best.

Certainly need to go for one with the separate sub woofer - preferably wi-fi (which is common to most units and smart tv's).

Yesterday I had a shop around. Saw a LG soundbar and separate Woofer and WiFi. Got the guy at Homepro to show me it working. Sounded excellent. Was 7990B but I used Homepro card and was 7490B.

They delivered it today and installed it. Got to say excellent value, sound and quality.
