Product Details

Polk Audio Instant Home Theater Sound Bar, Model SURROUNDBAR5000

Ah, to have a flat panel speaker that matches the flat panel television. No more speaker boxes strewn about the room, no more wiring clutter. And yet, no sacrificing audio quality or deep bass effects for movies and even gaming. We can dream, can’t we? And we can... stream, now, too! Because the incredible SurroundBar 5000 IHT features Bluetooth Wireless Technology for clear, loss-less streaming from mobile gadgets like smart phones and tablets. Now your music can be heard, in dynamic CD-quality reproduction, with no wires and no complex setups or calibrations. Polk engineers have designed the ultimate Bluetooth speaker that’s also the ultimate single-speaker home theater & subwoofer system: The SurroundBar 5000 IHT.

Features:

  • Shallow-depth design, just 2.25-inches deep, blends seamlessly with your flat panel TV installation.
  • SmartBar™ programming enables the SurroundBar 5000 IHT 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. (The SB5kIHT includes it’s own easy-to-use remote, too, if that’s the way you roll.)
  • Bluetooth Wireless Technology with aptX Audio Coding, to deliver CD-quality sound from your iPhone, Android, tablet or other compatible device.
  • On-board Dolby Digital processing: connect directly to your TV, DVD or Blu-Ray player, or gaming console.
  • Dual Tuned Ported Enclosure design enhances optimum blending between the sound bar’s drivers and the compact wireless subwoofer, whether the bar is wall- or shelf-mounted, and no matter where the sub is placed.
  • Built-in keyhole slots for easy wall-mounting; just one of a wide range of placement options. 
  • Magnetically shielded for placement on or near any type of video monitor.
  • Compact 120 Watt wireless subwoofer features 6.5-inch downward firing poly-composite Dynamic Balance® woofer and flared J-port for big bass with low distortion.
  • State-of-the-art lossless wireless technology delivers absolutely instantaneous subwoofer response, so the subwoofer can be placed anywhere within 50-feet of the sound bar and deliver immediate deep bass satisfaction.
  • Includes: 6-foot Optical Audio Cable, plus analog audio cables, for quick and easy TV-to-Bar connection, Easy-to-master Remote Control (batteries thoughtfully included).
  • ENERGY STAR Certified.
  • All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

          Comments about Polk Audio Instant Home Theater Sound Bar:

          Use the product to make dialogue more understandable on television stations. Sony TV Brava has poor speakers so need something to improve the sound. It works fine and was easy to set up. Still too much base sound for my use but for those who watch action movies or play games, I'm sure it fills the bill. I just turn the woofer off and I get the sound that I want. I do have problems syncing the on off with my remote but its only an occasional issue.

                This is a great soundbar. Easy to set-up, easy to use and it sounds great. The wireless subwoofer allows some flexibility as well. I recommend this to anyone who wants to enhance their tv's sound quality without breaking their wallet.

                      I have this set up in a 15 x 12 room, sound quality is good, bass is powerful and easy to control. came with optical cable so set up was a snap. Bluetooth function works well with music on Kindel and Android phone. Sometime need to reboot when switching from TV to Bluetooth.

                      Comments about Polk Audio Instant Home Theater Sound Bar:

                      We have a surround sound system on a different television, and that has a richer range of sound than this Polk sound bar, but I'm not complaining. A bit more strength in the bass and this would be a five-star product. As it is, the Polk offers a satisfactory range of sound, and the volume is excellent, which was our biggest concern.

                      I needed a stand-alone application and this bar has no stand/legs. I have to balance it on two pieces of wood. Duh - not the best look or safest answer.
