The JBL Bar5.0 soundbar is displayed against an orange background.

A big, vibrant screen is only half of a complete home entertainment setup. If you want a truly immersive watching experience at home, you'll also want to upgrade your TV's audio. That's easy to do with a soundbar, and right now you can snag one at a great bargain. Woot is currently offering 50% off the JBL Bar 5.0 multibeam soundbar, which drops the price down to $200. This deal is available through May 29, but Woot typically has a limited supply in stock, and there's a good chance it could sell out before then. We'd recommend getting your order in sooner rather than later if you don't want to miss out on these savings.

This 5.0-channel, 250-watt soundbar has multibeam technology and virtual Dolby Atmos, along with four passive radiators that deliver substantial bass sound without the need for a separate subwoofer. Once the soundbar is set up with multibeam calibration ready to go, you should be able to hear your audio shift side to side or up and down as it passes through different channels for a surround-sound audio effect.

Having a soundbar right under your TV is a far more compact option than other speaker systems, and this JBL model is only 28 inches long while still delivering an immersive sound suitable for TV and music alike. It also has HDMI passthrough to connect multiple devices, as well as built-in Chromecast, AirPlay and Amazon Alexa to make streaming simple.
