I wanted to see what my options are for getting a soundbar that I could place on the cabinet that is below my tv. My wife probably won't let me get anything too big so I wanted to see about getting something that is under 2ft? Do they make something that is discrete? Also, do they have wireless subwoofers that would fit under my couch?

Thanks

First off what size of tv? Second, wives and girlfriends unless they know this stuff better than you, they are just going by how their parents trained them to think of everything that does not fit in, as a nusance.

Their are plenty of center speakers that will fit in, but as for soundbars, you would have to go with a 3.1 setup, with the amp either in the sub, the center speaker, or a small form factor amp.

Post the size of the room and the size of the tv, can go from there.

My tv is 55 inches. We already have 2 8inch rear ceiling speakers but need something for the front. Don't need anything too expensive or loud. Just something that can play audio from the front.

Really depends on how much you are planning on spending. I went from a 32" Vizio sound bar, to a 42" with wireless Sub.

My budget was no more than $200 when I was looking at the Vizio SB4021E-A0, from the VSB20x series that we got for $99.

The sound quality on the E series with wireless sub is good for watching anything. Sub is under the end table where I sit, and bass is not bad, unless you watch something with a lot of bottom end bass, then it shows its colors.

Our living room is about 14x16, and personally it fits in right under our 42" Plasma. You really do not notice it sitting on the stand under the tv, since it blends in.

Your problem is that no matter what you go with, the wife will always find a problem with it.

Already told you that there are 3.1 systems out there. Do you homework, because no one else will, due to we are not the ones looking for it or going to purchase it. Personally if you keep letting your wife or girlfriend dictate what you do, hand in your guy card now.
