LG Sound Bar GX 3.1-Channel Soundbar w/ Wireless Subwoofer

MSRP 1000 USDNEX score 47%

Product Overview

The LG GX soundbar is designed to match the style of the company's GX Gallery series ultra-thin OLED TVs. The soundbar can be mounted either flush on the wall directly under the TV or supported on the included steel stand.
Identical in width and finish to the 65-inch GX Gallery series TV, the GX soundbar delivers superior sound thanks to Dolby Atmos and DTX:S for three-dimensional audio. The included wireless subwoofer adds to the low-frequency performance, and the optional wireless rear speakers (SPK8) deliver deeper immersion.
The LG GX soundbar also supports the high-bandwidth eARC for high-quality streaming from smart devices.
It can be paired with LG's SPK8-S wireless rear speakers for more authentic, 5.1-channel surround sound enjoyment.

Sentiment Score 47%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The LG GX Soundbar is good for mixed use. It has a bit of a boomy sound profile with a touch of brightness. Although it comes with a wireless subwoofer, it also lacks thumpy low-bass. It can also get loud enough for use in a large or crowded room but there's some compression at max volume.
