Mohu Curve 50

The power to pull in your favorite TV shows

If you've had limited success receiving over-the-air TV broadcasts, it may be time to replace your old-school antenna with Mohu's smartly engineered Curve 50. Its ultra-thin design uses advanced technology originally developed for the U.S. military. You can conveniently place the Curve 50 on a shelf, countertop, or table near your TV — it works either standing upright or lying flat. Like most antennas, the Curve 50 generally performs best when located fairly high in the room or near a window.

Mohu's signal amplifier extends the Curve 50's range

The Curve 50 includes Mohu's high-performance Jolt antenna amplifier, which uses patent-pending technology to increase reception range while filtering out the RF noise that can harm picture quality. Compared to the unamplified Curve 30, most people find that the Curve 50's antenna/amplifier combo lets them receive more stations, while also producing a clearer picture on stations with less-than-perfect reception. The compact amplifier module connects between the Curve 50 and your TV.

You have a couple of options for powering the amplifier. There's a mini USB port on the amplifier module, which allows you to power it off of any standard USB port on your TV — the USB-to-mini-USB cable is included. The advantage of USB power is that the amplifier will only draw power when the TV is turned on, instead of 24/7. If you don't have an available USB port on your TV, the amplifier also includes a regular AC power adapter, which you can plug into any standard wall outlet.

Product Highlights:

  • receives digital and analog TV signals — high-band VHF (channels 7-13) and UHF (channels 14-51)
  • range is 50 miles
  • thin, curved design can lie flat or stand upright
  • includes amplifier module with 15 dB gain and Clean Peak™ filter technology
  • mini USB jack for AC power — amplifier can be powered via USB port on your TV or via standard AC wall outlet (cable included)
  • includes 16-ft. detachable coaxial cable
  • 11-11/16"W x 7-3/4"H x 2-3/8"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Better than Expected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We picked up 15 channels of very clear HD TV. This product is very hard to beat.

The Best

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We purchased locally two indoor antennae of different brands and couldn't get even the major channels at the same setting. So we ordered the Mohu 50 Curve. It is amazing! With the Curve we can get the major channels and many others, around 90 in all. For us it was perfect.

Pros: Pleasant to look at, long coaxial cord, ease of setup.

Cons: non

Did not help reception!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Made absolutely no changes in our already poor reception. We have 11 channels with a broken roof antennae, and still only 11 channels with the MOHU Curve 50.

Mohu Curve 50

Written By Mike, Nevada, Las Vegas on Wednesday, February 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Curve worked better than I expected. I picked up what the TV said was 73 channels. The amazing part is its in the middle of the house, far from and window, its just not possible to place it anywhere else, and it works very well! Most are religious and/or Hispanic, so in the end I netted 20+ channels that are usable to me. We dropped Satellite over 2 years ago because of the expense, picked up Netflix which is great, and now I get all the local news channels plus a few home improvement channels with this device.

Pros: Super easy to install and set up, comes with everything you need.

Cons: A wall mount would be a nice addition to this device, increases its versatility,

More channels than I thought!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My brick bungalow cape usually blocks reception, but this antenna, on a high shelf upstairs in the peak, gets maybe a dozen or more stations in Central Connecticut. Much better than I had expected. (Relatively unobtrusive, and the stations are also very clear.)

Pros: Lots of stations.

Cons: none

Very Happy

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Definitely will cut the cord! Got all of my network channels from Tampa. Pointed it towards Tampa in front of a window.

Pros: Very attractive design, everything included for a professional looking setup.

Cons: None

Not Too Shabby

Written By Avery, Colorado on Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I finally decided to cut my cable cord and go with a less expensive option. I ordered the Mohu Curve 50 after reading reviews on Crutchfield and running my address to see the number of channels I could expect. Installation was quite simple and I'm pleased with the reception. I picked up 20 or so channels with my Mohu positioned in a central location within my residential home and an additional 20 channels with the antenna positioned in the window.

Pros: + easy to install + consistent reception + antenna design + free major network channels

Great design

Written By JS, Sauk Rapids, MN on Monday, September 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Be sure your close to a metropolitan area. I am a ways away and I purchased this because of the 50 mile radius. After hook up the Muhu Curve worked fine but I only received 6 channels and most of them were shopping Ch. The design is great but in my area not many Ch. are available. If you are closer to a metro area I would recommend the Mohu.

Pros: Great Design with everything included

Cons: Not much reach in my area

Mohu Curve 50

Written By John D, White Hall, VA on Friday, March 14, 2014

Product improved reception of local Charlottesville and Richmond channels. Included cables allowed optimal placement of the antenna.

Pros: Worked well. Innocuous antenna design. Flexible placement of antenna. Easy set up.

Cons: None

Works surprisingly well.

Written By Matt, Colorado on Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I found that with a little effort this antenna performs pretty well. As with any antenna I've found that placement and orientation are critical to tune in specific channels. Although the manufacturer claims the antenna is more or less omnidirectional, this is not optimal. I don't recommend permanently affixing it to a wall... Keep it on a shelf or table near a window, within easy reach so you can point it and improve your reception for any given station.

That said, once I got used to it, I am able to pick up stations up to 70 miles distant, a pleasant surprise.

Additionally, I did not experience the problem with the amplifier piece that the other reviewer on crutchfield did, mine seems to work fine. He must have gotten a defective unit.

Overall, a good alternative to rooftop or attic antennas. I am receiving the stations I wanted to get, so I'm pretty satisfied.

Pros: Great range. Compact, lightweight and not too ugly.

Cons: May require adjustment depending on your situation.

Mohu Curve 50 - winner with an asterisk

Written By Chris H, Twin Cities, MN on Friday, November 08, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

End results with the Curve 50 definitely merits 5 stars; however, I had some problems getting there, so I'm going with 3 stars overall...

I previously was using a Mohu Leaf Ultimate, and was pleased with its performance, but I was interested in a different design aesthetically, so I tried the Curve... In the looks department, the Curve is great - much easier to "hide" the cable in various configurations - that's a win. Anyway, I put everything together and fired it up. Did a channel search and got zip-nada. I was dumbfounded, since I knew the connections were all good. On a whim, I decided to swap the Curve 50's amplifier for my old Leaf Ultimate amplifier, and when I did that, the stations came flooding in... I got more stations with the Curve than I did with the Leaf, and they were all rock-solid and crystal-clear. I tried the Curve amplifier one more time, and still got nothing. So, I'm VERY pleased with final results overall, but I'm also very happy I had that old amplifier to use! Maybe my Curve 50 amp happened to be a dud, or maybe that new amp design is simply whacked - who knows...

Pros: The Curve antenna itself appears to be a better design (in terms of reception capability) than its Leaf counterpart -- I was ultimately able to pull in more stations with the Curve than with the Leaf. I hung the Curve on a wall, and it certainly looks much nicer there than the Leaf did. Win-win.

Cons: The amplifier I got with my Curve 50 was either a total dud, or this new amplifier design they are using with the Curve 50 is completely worthless. When I tried to use it, no stations could be located (yes, I do mean zero!).
