Flat screen HDTVs have come a long way in their development in the last few years, one of the down falls in their ever slimming design is speaker placement. Many HDTVs now ship with rear-facing speakers in an effort to slim down its profile. Simply put, your beautiful 4K television sounds terrible because the speakers are aimed towards the wall instead of the viewer.

There are a few ways to solve this problem, but the simplest option with the best results is a soundbar. For years, 5.1 surround sound systems have been the cream of the home theater crop but consumers are finding the wiring and installation process to be not worth the struggle. Soundbars are much simpler to install and offer a wide variety of extras such as wireless subwoofers, HDMI inputs and wireless Bluetooth audio at very competitive prices.
