Our take on the JBL Cinema SB 200 by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
The JBL Cinema SB 200 sound bar's good looks and rich sound add enhance your TV experience.
Hidden within this handsome but compact sound bar is the sound your TV wanted to have, but was too crowded to house. It doesn't take a lot of depth to make a small speaker sound good, though. The Cinema SB 200 is barely 4 inches deep, yet its performance bears a strong family resemblance to the classic soul-satisfying sound that has made JBL a household name for decades.
Though the JBL Cinema SB 200 has two channels, it's capable of generating a generous surround-like soundfield through their innovative Display Surround technology. And this sound bar's inputs aren't restricted to improving your television's audio. Built-in Bluetooth® circuitry will receive signals from your smartphone, tablet, or other compatible streaming devices, so you can fill your viewing room with the music that's available at your fingertips.

Soundbar Speaker System: The JBL Cinema SB200 is a complete, integrated soundbar system that dramatically improves the sound reproduction of your flat-panel TV and wirelessly streams music from your Bluetooth-enabled devices. Designed to complement 32" and larger flat-panel televisions, the JBL Cinema SB200 is ideal for people who want premium sound quality with impressive bass performance in a nonintrusive, easy-to-install solution. The SB200 Soundbar system features exclusive Harman Display Surround, built-in Dolby Digital decoding, as well as analog and optical digital audio inputs. It can mount on a wall or sit on a shelf.
Speaker & Amplifier Section: The SB200 Soundbar houses two 1" dome tweeters and dual 3.5" premium cone woofers powered by a 120-Watt amplifier. The two high-excursion woofers and the enclosure's dual port design, let you enjoy impressive bass performance without making you find room for an external subwoofer.
Harman Display Surround + Dolby Digital Decoding: Drawing from Harman expertise in movie theater audio, the Cinema SB200 lets you add cinema sound without adding multiple speakers. Employing proprietary Harman Display Surround technology, it creates a virtual surround-sound experience for multiple listeners from a single soundbar. The Cinema SB200 can also decode Dolby Digital soundtracks, which eliminates conversion stages that reduce sound quality.
Bluetooth Technology: The Cinema SB200 features built-in Bluetooth A2DP, which allows you to wirelessly stream audio from your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, laptop/computer, or other Bluetooth-enabled device to the JBL soundbar speaker system.
Bass Boost: JBL is known for exceptional bass response, and the Cinema SB200 lets you increase low-frequency performance at the touch of a button on the included remote. The added bass impact is ideal for movie soundtracks.
Analog + Digital Inputs: The Cinema SB200 features both analog (minijack) & digital (optical) inputs to connect your flat-panel TV and a Blu-ray/DVD player, or satellite/cable box to the system.
Remote Control: The Cinema SB200 comes with a credit card-sized IR remote. However, this soundbar speaker can also "learn" the IR (infrared) volume-control code of your existing TV remote control, taking away the need to keep track of yet another remote for controlling the volume on the soundbar.
Mounting Options: You can place the Cinema SB200 on a shelf or tabletop, or wall-mount it with the included bracket. A dual-position equalization feature optimizes the soundbar's performance for any location. So you can position it where you choose without compromising sound quality.

No. The sound bar has a full range and the one I purchased actually is fairly In the low range. I purchased it with that capability because I didn't have a space for a sub-woofer. [ Jon May 24, 2016 ]
Not really. A sound bars has high and low speakers built in it to give you the surround sound . Unlike a center channel just focuses on dialog . Hope this helps. [ allan May 23, 2016 ]
