Input needed on selecting soundbar

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have been researching soundbars for my family room which has a wall mounted TV, and have narrowed it down to the following:

1) HK SB30
2) JBL CinemaSB400
3) Klipsch SB3

The HK says 230-watts with 100-watt sub, JBL says 120-watts with 200-watt sub, Klipsch says "300-watts peak" (not sure what is the breakup between the speaker and sub).

So the question is: which one would be more important for sound quality - the power watts of the speaker or the sub?

I am inclining towards the HK, but thought to get input from this forum in case I am missing anything obvious. Also, any other recommendations besides the above three for under $1K soundbar? I am just looking for great sound quality (not comparing with 5.1/7.1 setups of course smile.gif), and HDMI inputs are not that important (since I plan to connect the soundbar to the TV using optical and all HDMI's inputs from the various sources go directly to the TV).

Thanks for your help.

Go check out the HK SB30 owners thread. That may help answer your questions. I would also throw Yamaha soundbars into the mix as they make some pretty impressive units.
