Welcome to Tvmates.com, where we believe that every great TV deserves an equally grand sound system. You know that feeling when you’re at a cinema, and the audio is so good it feels like you’re part of the movie? That, dear reader, is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. And thankfully, soundbars are here to ensure you can recreate that cinematic splendor right in your living room, without breaking the bank or the interior décor.


Enter Vizio, the American prodigy that’s been making budget-friendly LCD TVs feel like they’re strutting on the red carpet since 2002. Always the ones to spot a trend (or set one), they tuned into the escalating love affair between consumers and quality audio to start producing soundbars in 2014. If TVs are the heart of a home entertainment system, then Vizio’s soundbars are the soul.

These elongated pieces of auditory brilliance can be slyly tucked away if you’re playing it cool. But let’s be real: they’re so well-designed, they’ll probably become a part of your décor faster than you can say “surround sound.” If you’ve already got a speaker system that you’re not quite ready to part with, no worries. Add a Vizio soundbar to the mix, and you’ll achieve a soundscape so immersive, even your neighbors will thank you (or invite themselves over for movie night).

From the timid bachelor who only needs a solo soundbar to feel the force of a spaceship landing, to the full-fledged audiophile looking to elevate their existing symphony of speakers—there’s a soundbar for you. So why settle for ‘meh’ when you can have ‘WOW’? Trust us, once you hear the difference, going back to your TV’s built-in speakers would be like going back to dial-up internet—simply unthinkable.

Now, if you’re ready to give your TV the better half it always deserved, you’ve come to the right place. Because here at Tvmates.com, we make room-filling audio a reality, one soundbar at a time.

How do you connect your Vizio soundbar to your TV?

The newer Vizio soundbar models offer Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to set up a wireless system, eliminating untidy cables. While there are several ways to make the connection between soundbar and your TV, like RCA, digital optical, or coaxial cables, HDMI is the recommended method, providing the best results.

The first thing you need is a good HDMI cable. The next steps are as follows:

  • Once you’ve unpacked your soundbar, and checked it over, take the HDMI cable and connect it to the HDMI Out port on your soundbar.
  • Plug the other end into the port on your TV.
  • Connect the power cable to the soundbar.
  • On your remote control, select HDMI as your input method and press input.
