It looks great but sounds terrible. So I picked up a sound bar. I want to get the best sound. Boston Acoustics makes some nice-sounding ones. Many sound bars these days come with a digital usually fiberoptic input and an analog input. For best results and simplicity, I would suggest using the fiberoptic digital input.

Once you have the inputs connected, and the sound bar and sub placed more or less in their final positions, plug the power cables into both the sub and sound bar and make sure they turn on. The last step is to play some movies and music and see how it all sounds.
