Tips For Best Audio on Vizio 5.1 Soundbar
Size of Soundbar
If you have not yet purchased a soundbar, try to get one that is large. It should be large enough to produce a room-filling sound with good bass. If you already have purchased a soundbar, follow the next steps to get better sound from it.
Turn OFF TV’s Speakers
When audio is playing through your Vizio 5.1 soundbar, there is no need for TV speakers. When the TV is also playing audio, you will not have good experience because you already are using a 5.1 surround sound system.
Although the soundbars can’t deliver true surround sound effects but this feature brings a great change in audio quality. Some people may not love this effect. You can turn this effect ON and if you experience worse audio than before, you can disable it. However, most people love this surround sound effect very much and keep it ON.
Best Input Option
You may be thinking of connecting the TV and soundbar using RCA or Aux cables but these are outdated cables and can’t deliver excellent audio. Better is to use HDMI, Optical, or Bluetooth connection.
You should also change equalizer settings to adjust bass and treble. Equalization helps you enhance your audio according to your preferences and requirements. For more dialogue clarity, you can increase the treble. Bass is increased when you need heavy sound especially for music. The better is to keep treble high for watching dramas and other programs on TV where it is important to listen dialogue clearly. You can take help from the user manual regarding equalizer settings for your particular model of soundbar.
