JBL is making a play for space just under your shiny new high-resolution TV with its latest soundbar and subwoofer combo. JBL are known for its pro audio and Bluetooth speakers, and also the company has a history of making the sound bars geared towards the movie bombast at the cost of musical refinement. The JBL Cinema SB 450 continues in this style, in part to a booming subwoofer that gives you the look and feel of enormous soundbar standards. The soundbar features with the four HDMI ports and three of which are 2.0a/HDCP 2.2 compliment in connections that allow you to connect your cable box and the games console to the bar individually alongside a single HDMI output will link everything to your TV. The HDMI ports will also pass 4K signals, but the sound bar would also enable the Bluetooth restreaming to other JBL devices. Its ability to handle the 4K content means that there won’t be any loss in picture quality. Until you take notice of the 8-inch, 200-watt wireless subwoofer from the JBL Cinema SB 450, other sound bar systems might not appear all that different than a slew of crowding in the market. At 13 inches square, it is a beast of a sub, one of the biggest sound bar system so far in a midprice.
The sound bar that accompanies the sub looked substantially the same as that of SB350’s with 44 inches wide and is covered in a fine steel mesh. The opaque mesh includes an undisclosed number of 2.25-inch transducers within. At the top of the bar are the controls, while at the bottom sit adjustable feet. The credit-card-style clicker in JBL Cinema SB 450 is way too complicated and is packed with the tiny buttons. Program your TV or the cable box remote for the volume or buy a universal model rather. Other connections incorporate optical, 3.5mm auxiliary and USB for firmware updates. The sound bar includes the Bluetooth connectivity and a feature the company calls it as JBL Connect, that shares your Bluetooth wireless connection with other compatible products, such as the JBL Charge 3.
