Features:

  • Wireless Kelton Subwoofer The included Wireless Kelton Subwoofer provides flexible and easy installation with no wires to connect.
  • Clear-Mode Dialog Clear TV Sound Reproduction With clear-mode dialog, the voice will sound more from the center of the TV display. With more precise linking between the picture and the sound, the dialog voices and vocals in movies and music can be enjoyed with clearer sound.
  • Advanced Bamboo Cone Speaker Clear, Beautiful Vocals With the new bamboo cone speakers the sound becomes more responsive. Vocals are purer and clearer, and the dialog is crisper and easier to understand than ever before.
  • Slim Single Bar-type And Easy Connection Easy Installation With Low-Noise Bass Sound Setting up the SC-HTB500 sound bar is easy and simple. Just place it in front of the TV and connect to the TV and a Blu-ray Disc™ player with HDMI cables. The SC-HTB500 realizes realistic live sound which cannot be experienced with TV speakers.
  • Audio Return Channel (ARC) Simple Connection With HDMI Cable The SC-HTB500 is compatible with a new feature of Audio Return Channel (ARC). ARC allows receiving audio signals from the TV, on top of the preexisting HDMI function of sending audio/video signals to the TV with just one cable. This new feature will simplify the connection by eliminating an audio cable connection between TV audio output and the main unit's audio input.

    Comments about Panasonic Sound Bar Home Theater System And Wireless Kelton Subwoofer:

    This sound bar added some badly needed depth to our new 3D Plasma HDTV. Since the TV is a 2010 model, the ARC channel can be used for the Blu-ray player and the sound bar and Viera Link combines all boxes into on remote control for basic functions. Progressing from the "that's nice" setup phase though, there are some significant deficiencies that weigh against the overall experience: * There's only one HDMI input so we had to choose between the Blu-ray player and HD television. We're paying a surcharge each month for quality TV and can't get full benefit from because the sound bar doesn't accommodate it. * "Clear Mode Dialog" helps but the unit really needs a center speaker clearer projection of voices. * Using the sound bar as the default speakers means that we have less control over the actual quality of the sound. The rudimentary 3 level subwoofer control is not at all sufficient. More importantly, there is no "volume leveler" so we're now adjusting sound constantly. We looked at a number of add-on speakers from Panasonic and other vendors but they all seem to be out of sync with our needs and overpriced for what they deliver. None of the "in a box" solutions included a 3D Blu-ray player (which we already had anyway) and we didn't want large obtrusive speakers; we just wanted better sound with minimal installation hassle. We did have to place the TV on a 2 1/2“ riser to avoid blocking the 3D emitters but other than that, the installation was quite easy. The wireless subwoofer on this model is quite nice; it's surprising/disappointing that there isn't an optional kit to add some wireless rear speakers.

    Great fix for Plasma sound

      Comments about Panasonic Sound Bar Home Theater System And Wireless Kelton Subwoofer:

      My TC-P46G10 has looked great from the get go. However, I have suffered with less than decent sound from TV speakers. The NEW SC HT500 sound bar is a super fix. I can now truly enjoy the Pandora feature and blast my BluRays. I recommend the 500 for the wireless subwoofer. I can't say that this system is equal to a 7 or 5 speaker surround system. But for money spent ease of use (Non ARC TV) this works well. I am happy about using Viera Link, saves on remotes!
