If you have a sound bar, especially if a it's connected by an analog cable first, grab your remote and put your TV on a dialogue heavy program, like a talk show or the news next press the remotes menu or settings button on a Samsung TV. Speaker 1: For example, you would arrow down to choose the audio selection while some other brands may call it sound at the top of the menu.

If [00:01:30] your TV has those, try reducing the base by half and increasing trouble a little bit to increase the higher frequency parts of speech, which can make sound clearer. Speaker 1: Once you've got the audio as good as you can, then you should be able to exit out of the TV. You don't need to save it. Get a soundbar. There's only so much fidelity a punny TV speaker can provide. And so a soundbar is then the next most obvious step. Excellent soundbars. Aren't very expensive starting at around $80 and almost anything will sound better than [00:02:00] a TV affordable brands to consider a visit Yamaha and Polk computer audio brand creative also has some budget models, which can also double as TV speakers.

If it has one like TVs, many soundbar offer a speech enhancement mode and you may need to experiment with as different settings. See, for example has up to 12 different levels of sound enhancement. If you have an AV system with tower or bookshelf speakers, you can also try moving them away from walls or corners and then point or tow them in towards the middle. Removing speaker grills Speaker 2: Will also boost the mid-range [00:03:00] by a couple of decibels. If you have a subwoofer, it may be drowning out your TV without you even noticing a separate subwoofer, shouldn't be distinguishable from the rest of your system. If you can hear it, then it's too loud using its volume control to turn it down, should help with the general intelligibility of your system. There's plenty more things you can do as well, including performing a calibration if you own an AV receiver, but the few steps I've outlined here should be enough to get you started and help you understanding more of the programs [00:03:30] that you love to watch.
