Polk Audio SurroundBar6000 Instant Home Theater - SURROUNDBAR6000

Surround Bar Series

Five Channels. One Speaker. Zero Clutter.

Style and surround sound, together at last. You just bought a new flat panel, wide screen HDTV. All you need is some great sound to go with that beautiful picture. How do you feel about installing speakers all around your room and running wires everywhere to add surround sound to your new TV? Don't worry, there's an easier way. Polk Audio SurroundBar Series speakers achieve single-speaker surround sound from one slim speaker bar. Our exclusive patented SDA Surround Digital Technology eliminates the need for rear speakers. With four models to choose from, you'll be sure to find a SurroundBar that fits almost any application. Our patented PowerPort Bass Venting Technology, advanced Digital Signal Processing and Neodymium motor structures that create "built-in subwoofer bass" eliminating the need for a separate subwoofer are just some of the exciting innovations SurroundBar offers.

Key Features:

  • Slimmer. Larger. Deeper. Smoother. The new SurroundBar® 6000 Instant Home Theater System is all of these things, plus Polk Audio's patented 3D surround sound breakthrough, SDA® Surround. It's the ultimate in single-speaker surround sound systems for wafer-thin flat-panel TVs, and includes on-board digital processing and a separate compact wireless subwoofer you can put anywhere for enhanced bass effects.
  • 3D Audio. Polk Audio's 3D Audio combines two groundbreaking, patented technologies to produce an audio environment that can only be described as 3-dimensional. Combining Polk Audio's proprietary SDA Surround technology and Polk Digital Logic processing technology produces a rich, enveloping listening experience. It reaches out beyond your TV screen to put you in the center of the action. So go beyond your stock TV speakers! Experience engaging surround-sound, with Polk Audio's 3D Audio. The 5 Easy Steps to Improving Your TV Sound With Clutter-Free Digital Surround-Sound Connect the SurroundBar 6000 to your TV or processor using the supplied optical or analog audio cable. Plug the SurroundBar 6000 into an AC outlet. Plug the Wireless Subwoofer into an AC outlet. Turn on your SurroundBar and your Wireless Subwoofer. Start enjoying superior digital surround sound with your SurroundBar 6000 IHT.
  • The Single-Speaker Surround Sound System For Larger Rooms, Slimmer TVs. When you want to fill a larger room with convincing surround sound, and you want the incredible convenience of a single-speaker system, or you have a new super-slim flat-panel TV, the SurroundBar 6000 IHT delivers the clutter-free performance and style you want. No wires, no other speakers needed. Simple connections, specially engineered materials, and digital technology in a beautiful loudspeaker that's less than 2" thin and mounts above or below your flat-panel TV. A state-of-the-art fast-response compact wireless subwoofer goes anywhere, needs only a wall outlet to power it, and provides Polk Audio's trademark deep, musical bass response. The SurroundBar 6000 IHT fills your room with more realistic sound, and gives TV watching, movie viewing or even gaming a whole new dimension of emotion and impact.

Features:

  • SLIMMER, LARGER: Perfect for bigger, slimmer flat panel TV designs. At less than 2" deep, the SurroundBar 6000 IHT complements new slimmer flat-panel TVs. It's lightweight and easy-to-mount, either on the wall or on your shelf. All the hardware you need is included, too. High gloss details match today's TV styling. Your TV and SurroundBar system will look like they were made for each other. (And they were.)
  • DEEPER, SMOOTHER: Deep, authoritative bass comes from the compact wireless subwoofer in a stylish cabinet. A flared J-Port design optimizes the bass for bigger volume, reducing port turbulence for smooth blending. Loss-less wireless technology results in absolutely instantaneous response. In addition, universal port tuning in the SurroundBar itself guarantees ideal mid-bass response and smooth subwoofer blending whether it's mounted on a shelf or on the wall.
  • Superior performance from superior technologies. In the SurroundBar 6000 IHT, Polk's patented SDA Surround technology is combined with Polk Digital Logic?. Digital SDA Surround uses complex algorithms to reproduce multiple audio channels without requiring multiple speakers, while Polk Digital Logic is our advanced proprietary DSP firmware (it's the software that does the set-up for you). Even with no complex set up or menu calibrations, and no additional speakers, your ear actually hears sounds directed to audio channel locations (L, R, rear). It's the ultimate expression of today's multi-channel audio technology, in the most convenient form possible.
  • With on-board Dolby Digital® , no additional processor is needed. Connect your TV, DVD or Blu-Ray® player, or gaming console directly to your SurroundBar 6000 IHT via optical or analog inputs and experience the magic of single-speaker surround sound.
  • SmartBar programming enables the SurroundBar 6000 to easily learn volume up/down and mute from your existing TV remote control. You'll use only one remote for the SurroundBar and your TV.
  • Simple set up, just plug it in. Use the supplied audio connection to plug your SurroundBar 6000 IHT into your TV or processor. Plug the SurroundBar unit into a wall socket. Plug the wireless subwoofer into a wall socket. Flip their power switches, and just like that you've energized your audio experience. There are no complex on-screen menus, and there's no calibration needed.

    This is a great sounding system. Very easy to set-up and delivers all of the quality sound it promises. Programming the remotes is a bit tricky and it will sometimes read your Direct TV remote incorrectly, switching it to a different source/turning it off. Minor problems for an overall great product.

    I researched this product and many other similar and from the reviews I chose this one. Many said this was not a replacement for a 5-1 system but it added a lot of presence to the sound field, sorry to report this is not the case. Sound from the sub-woofer is no where to be found, placed it in every location in the room and turned it to max volume - no body home! I could have bought a couple of 6 x 9 speakers and a cheap amp for less then a $100 and had an equal sound.[...]

        Comments about Polk Audio Soundbar Instant Home Theater:

        Once I accepted the fact that I had to buy a sound bar to complement a $1300 tv, I did my research. The Polk gets good reviews all around. It is very easy to set up. The ability to sync the sound bar to my TV remote was a huge plus. The sub woofer was a little more difficult to set up because I don't really consider myself an audiophile. But I followed the directions and listened to a few music channels to set it to a place that I was comfortable with. I have not adjusted it since. To be honest, the sound is good but it seems like the way a TV should work.

          I picked this up after returning a Energy soundbar that didn't have a satellite subwoofer. This is a great alternative to purchasing a 5.1 speaker system.

            The sound is so much better than the Samsung built-in speakers. Getting my existing Comcast remote to control the speaker was fall-down simple. However, some buttons on the Comcast remote accidentally trigger other behaviors that then need to be undone. The subwoofer, on the carpeted floor, doesn't deliver integrated bass.

                The important 'trick' is that in order to have Comcast remotes control the Polk Audio , you need to have your TV remote (LG in my case) LEARN the Polk sound bar. THEN the Comcast remotes will control the Polk. Comcast has no way of programing their remote to control this Polk soundbar so I was bummed and finally I called Polk help line and right away they told me the secret above and it works great.

VERY CLEAR MID RANGE AND A THUNDERING WIRELESS SUB WOOFER. VERY EASY TO SET UP AND CONTROL. AFTER WATCHING A MOVIE FOR THE FIRST TIME, MY WIFE SAID SHE FELT LIKE SHE WAS AT THE MOVIE THEATER.

                      Replaces 7.1 system, not quite the same sound but, according to my wife, "All of those wires a finally gone".

                        got this to go with a Sony 32 inch TV for a bedroom. the sound almost overwhelms the TV, but in a good way. the addition of wireless subwoofers to soundbars is a definite plus. set up was easy, including having the soundbar volume, mute and power respond to the Comcast cable remote. the only workaround was programming the soundbar to respond to "aux" power (on/off) so pushing "all on" powers on or off the TV, cable box and soundbar. you only need the soundbar remote to adjust the subwoofer volume.
                        while a little more than I originally planned to spend, Polk sound is worth it.
                        I don't think this can substitute for a true surround sound set-up with rear speakers, however, but I doubt many, if any, soundbars really can.
