Before we go through the list of best soundbars under 5000 rupees, there are certain important things you should take a look at so that you can choose the best soundbar for your home.
Things To Consider Before Purchasing A Soundbar
If you are planning to install a soundbar in a living room or in a big room then make sure you purchase a soundbar system which comes with high-quality sound output and features like, supports Bluetooth connectivity options, remote control system, led display, NFC technology, aux cable option or wired connectivity, and with wall mounted feature as well.
The reason behind choosing a soundbar with several features is it will make it easier for you to control it when you are sitting further away from the soundbar. Nobody likes to reach the system every time you need to use the soundbar with different settings as it gets very annoying sometimes.
So, it is better to choose a soundbar which has got almost every remote features and connectivity.
If you are planning to set up your soundbar within hands reach then you can ignore some of the features like Bluetooth (though personally, we suggest you should purchase a soundbar with Bluetooth connectivity), and other wireless connectivity options.
We personally think a soundbar with 3 or more than 3 channels is a must when it comes to purchasing the best soundbars. Though there are options with 2 channels as well, with 3 or more you can stimulate the sound accordingly for virtual surround sound.
Active Sound Bars
The best thing about the soundbars with the Active Sound Bar option is that they come with in-built amplifiers. In-built amplifiers not only give you powerful sound but a good quality sound at an affordable price as well.
We have already told you the importance of good connectivity in the very first slide. Thankfully, almost every soundbars come installed with Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity these days. These features allow you to control the device remotely and lets you play movies, songs, and other things from the device connected to the soundbar.
Will you be hanging it on the wall or placing it near or under your TV? Positioning your soundbar is very important if you want an exceptional quality surround sound from your device. There are many soundbars which also have the wall mounting option. If you don’t have a place to lay it on the table near your TV you can mount it on the wall below in the center of the TV.
Now, when we have learned what about the important things that you should keep in mind while purchasing the best soundbars, let us tell you a difference between Sound Bars and Sound Basses. Did you think they are the same thing? NO!
Difference Between Sound Bars and Sound Bases.
Sound Bar can be differentiated among Sound Bases on the basis of their design. All the soundbars are long, rectangular-shaped installed with speakers and many many technologies that we don’t need to scratch our heads for. Sound bars gives you crisp, distince, and loud – so clear and loud sound that you can hear the whispered dialogues without even looking at the subtitles (it is high time to disable those subtitles and enjoy your movie!). Clearly, soundbars are bigger (lengthwise) than sound bases, they have a powerful and good quality sound output. One could say they are at par with real home theater effect when it comes to providing an immersive experience filled with surround sound and heart thumping bass.
Sound Bar Options
Only sound bars have got three placing options.
- Mount it on the wall under your TV
- Lay it on the table where your TV is already placed
- Put it on the shelf above or under your TV if you have a proper TV table.
Furthermore, many soundbars comes with an extra wireless subwoofer which gives you extra bass if you like to have a proper Dolby digital surround system.
As this article concentrates on the Sound Bars we will not get deep into learning about the Sound Bases. Compared to sound bars, sound bases are smaller in size but gives you almost the same sound experience as sound bars. They don’t have a mounting option and are only placed under your TV or your TV can be placed on top of them, hence, the name sound bases.
