How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The SurroundBar 6000 takes the traditional soundbar and adds one crucial piece of home-theater gear — a wireless subwoofer — to give you a taste of surround sound that you can't get from a soundbar alone. The SurroundBar 6000 may not be a substitute for a full surround system, but it may be the closest thing you'll find with the simplicity and low price of a soundbar. It's an easy, and worthwhile, upgrade to your HDTV's built-in speakers.
