Need a soundbase for under $100
We have a 2013 model Westinghouse 40" TV in our bedroom and I am looking around for a SoundBase but not willing to pay more than $100.
Our bedroom is about the size of a small living room, comfortably fits a King Bed and a Love Seat. Typical sound problem on the cheap TV, cheap speakers are too quite, and when you turn the sound up loud enough to hear everything, there tends to be a lot of distortion. I suspect that ANY soundbase is going to be better than the speakers in this TV, but I figured I would ask to see if anybody has had any experience with these already.
I am NOT looking for "quality" sound... The purpose is merely to hear the TV volume more clearly and without the distortion, and we want the BlueTooth feature to play music from our phones. Yes, I know that the cheap sound bases will also have distortion at louder volumes, but if the volume of one of these is even twice as loud overall, then the listening volume for us to watch TV in bed "should" have much less distortion... is my thinking correct? (thin weather stripping around the base might even reduce it further, i would think)
In any case, these are the options I am considering, all of which are available under $100. Does anybody have any direct experience with any of these? Or any other suggestions?
