There is a good chance you’ve been plowing through a few series and movie binges this summer, which probably has launched your TV into overdrive. And if you’re using your television’s native speakers as your primary audio output source, then you’re seriously missing out.
As we previously explained, no matter your TV’s model or brand, it’s common knowledge that they all emit low-quality audio that doesn’t do the program justice. The best and easiest way to fix this is to add a soundbar to your TV setup, and this best-selling Philips option is on sale for $59 at Walmart — $30 off its original retail price!
Philips HTL1520B 2.1-Channel Soundbar With Wireless Subwoofer, $59 (Orig. $89)
Right now is the perfect time to enjoy those summer movie nights with your significant other, your roommate, your friends or just yourself! And the best way to make it worthwhile every time is with a soundbar that gives you the perfect surround sound experience that turns your living room into a movie theater.
Walmart currently has tons of soundbar and subwoofer combo deals to choose from, but this one is definitely the best bang for your buck.
In addition to being a best seller from a brand the world knows and trusts, the Philips HTL1520B 2.1-Channel Soundbar comes with a wireless subwoofer to provide you with the right amount of bass to gives you those movie theater feels from your couch.
In case you’re unfamiliar, here’s how soundbars work and why it’s worth the investment.
Soundbars provide a richer, more robust sound output from your TV and usually come in a variety of “channels,” indicated in decimal format. The “2.1,” for example, in the Philips HTL1520B 2.1-Channel Soundbar With Wireless Subwoofer refers to the number of channels and subwoofers that are included in the soundbar.
So, for this model, the number before the dot refers to the left and right speakers (two), and the number to the right refers to the number of subwoofers (1).
Walmart shoppers can’t stop raving about this Philips soundbar, with several saying it emits “beautiful, bold sound.”
One particular shopper who’s had lots of experience with soundbars in the past added that this one blows the rest out of the water.
“The sound is so much better than my last soundbar that didn’t have a subwoofer,” the five-star reviewer wrote. “Such a difference! It was easy to get it so I can adjust the volume on my TV’s remote too.”
P.S. If you’re planning on hosting your own movie night with this Philips soundbar and need a few snacks to pair with your movie, consider signing up for Walmart+. The affordable service lets you unlock free grocery delivery from your store at preferred time slots reserved for members.
