Unless you spend thousands and thousands of dollars on an ultra high-end TV from Sony or another top brand, there’s no question that the sound quality on your TV is mediocre at best. Most of the time it’s flat-out awful. TV makers simply don’t invest in high-quality speakers in their TVs, and that’s fine since picture quality is really all that matters. Why doesn’t sound quality matter? Because giving your audio a huge upgrade costs next to nothing thanks to the advent of affordable sound bars, and Amazon’s own AmazonBasics 2.1 Channel Bluetooth Sound Bar with Built-In Subwoofer is the perfect example. This compact unit has a built-in sub so there’s nothing to set up aside from plugging it into your TV, and it costs less than $100!

* 31.5-inch sound bar with built-in subwoofer enhances home-audio systems (not compatible with universal or TV remotes)
