- Wireless subwoofer included
The Bar 5.1 Surround is by far the most expensive JBL sound bar we’ve tested to date. It’s the top of the range option, with JBL’s MultiBeam technology, a separate subwoofer, and 550 Watts of power promising a cinematic experience. It’s got the latest exciting sound bar features, such as built-in Chromecast and Apple Airplay 2.
