Product Details

Polk Audio Bluetooth Sound Bar Home Theater System, Model SURROUNDBAR6500BT

Flat panel TVs create stunning pictures. Their sound should be, stunning too, and that’s why we created the SurroundBar® 6500BT. This SurroundBar is a sleek, lean, self-powered single-speaker surround solution yet. And it comes with Bluetooth wireless technology with aptX®. The SurroundBar 6500BT blends almost seamlessly with the new generation of TVs, while the unobtrusive wireless subwoofer tucks away out of sight. But the real beauty of the SurroundBar 6500BT becomes evident the moment you turn it on. That’s when your panel comes alive with the astonishing performance of Polk’s legendary sound.

Features:

  • Polk's patented SDA surround technology delivers a vivid 5-channel sound field from a single source; no rear speakers or special room characteristics are required
  • Polk Digital Logic® technology, a proprietary DSP program, automatically calibrates and optimizes your SurroundBar for any room shape or system setup
  • On-board Dolby Digital processing: connect directly to your TV, DVD or Blu-Ray player, or gaming console
  • Installs anywhere easily, with the simple secure wall-mount bracket or shelf cradle
  • Extruded aluminum enclosure is designed to eliminate performance-robbing cabinet resonances
  • Anti-diffraction grille and bezel design create surprisingly open, spacious imaging
  • 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
  • Easy plug-and-play connections, with no complex setup or calibration needed. It works right out of the box
  • Compact 80 Watt wireless subwoofer features 7-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

I looked around for a while searching for a good sound bar system to replace my surround sound system. I was tired of all the wires!! I searched website after website and of course everyone had their own opinion about everything. My coworker just recently bought the 5500 Polk Audio Sound Bar System; she was totally satisfied with it as she was replacing her surround sound system as well. I decided on the Polk Audio 6500 Sound Bar System and it was a great choice. With only two wires for the sound bar and one plug for the subwoofer, I solved my wire problem. The sound bar system sounds great especially for movies! I was nervous to see how well it would compare to my previous surround sound system, but it has held its own. The only con I see is the subwoofer lacks the volume. I keep it turned all the way up and on some movies/shows I could use a little more. Other than that, I'm enjoying my new sound bar. It looks great, sounds great, and was the easiest setup! I'm a proud owner!

Not Great

Was told that the sound bar would be better than the sound within the TV. I'm not quite sure about that. Can't get the right volume from sound bar.

          This soundbar is very easy to set up and interfaces well with a Smart TV via the optical cable. Nicely designed. Great sound, although you have to play with it a little to get the subwoofer levels right.

          A little confusing to set up. Comes in huge box for two pieces, but well protected. Using the sub woofer is a little confusing, but the sound from the bar is clear enough. I've enjoyed this so far, especially for movies & watching football
