SurroundBar 6000 Instant Home Theater
Slimmer. Larger. Deeper. Smoother. The new SurroundBar® 6000 Instant Home Theater™ system is all of these things, plus Polk's patented 3D surround sound breakthrough, SDA® surround.

Larger Rooms, Thinner TVs: Meet Your SurroundBar

Slimmer, Larger - Perfect for bigger flat panel TV designs. At 2.25in. deep, the SurroundBar 6000 IHT complements the slimmest flat-panel TVs. It’s lightweight and easy-to-mount, either on the wall or on your shelf. All the hardware you need is included, too. High gloss details match today’s TV styling. Your TV and SurroundBar system will look like they were made for each other. (And they were.)

Deeper, Smoother - Deep, authoritative bass comes from the compact wireless subwoofer in a stylish cabinet. A flared J-port design optimizes the bass for bigger volume, reducing port turbulence for smooth blending. Lossless wireless technology results in absolutely instantaneous response. In addition, universal port tuning in the SurroundBar itself guarantees ideal mid-bass response and smooth subwoofer blending whether it’s mounted on a shelf or on the wall.

 
SurroundBar 6000 IHT Features:
  • Polk's patented SDA surround technology delivers a vivid, five-channel sound field from a single source; no rear speakers or special room characteristics are required.
  • Polk Digital Logic® technology, a proprietary DSP program, automatically calibrates and optimizes your SurroundBar for any room shape or system setup.
  • On-board Dolby Digital processing: connect directly to your TV, DVD or Blu-Ray player, or gaming console.
  • Installs anywhere easily, with the simple secure wall-mount bracket or shelf cradle.
  • Extruded aluminum enclosure is designed to eliminate performance-robbing cabinet resonances.
  • Anti-diffraction grille and bezel design create surprisingly open, spacious imaging.
  • SmartBar™ programming enables the SurroundBar 6000 to easily learn volume up/down and mute from your existing TV remote control. You’ll use only one remote for the SurroundBar and your TV.
  • Easy plug-and-play connections, with no complex setup or calibration needed. It works right out of the box!
  • Compact 80W wireless subwoofer features 7in. downward firing poly-composite Dynamic Balance® woofer and flared J-port for big bass with low distortion.
  • State-of-the-art lossless wireless technology delivers absolutely instantaneous subwoofer response.

5 out of 5 eggs2.1 never sound so great

Pros: sounds like 5.1
deep bass for music, gaming, movies, etc....
annoys my wife when I am gaming and listening to my tunes
perfect if you are just living in a apartment

I have it hook up straight from my Samsung tv using the optical output cuz my pc is connected thru the hdmi on the tv. they work great together so far. i have the sub behind my sofa to get that feeling like im in the game or movie and can feel the bass real good. will update later on how it went from there

Cons: can't see the volume levels on this, only hear it
tiny remote which is easy to lose if you don't take care of it
don't use the optical cord that comes with it buy a good brand name one cuz it feels cheap and gives a weak connection signal wise

Other Thoughts: would be cook to see the volume levels but it is what it is.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat sound

Pros: - easy to set up
- plug and play
- great sound
- deep bass
- bass and main volume controls are separate, if you turn the bass all the way down it can take a minute to get to a level that you can actually hear the difference, be patient.

Cons: The soundbar goes to standby after only a couple minutes without receiving a sound signal so if you pause a show/game when you come back the sound takes about 4 seconds to turn back on. It does this automatically, however if you are watching a show or cutscene in a game you miss out on a few seconds of dialog unless you remember to explicitly turn on the soundbar when you get back.

Other Thoughts: regarding my one con: my in-laws recently purchased a vizio soundbar. What it does is whenever it goes from standby to on it transitions the volume from off to its previous level(like turning the volume up) this starts immediately and i like this solution better than just all the sound all at once 4-5 seconds after the sound starts.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound

Pros: Easy to hook up - Great Sound

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: I checked out several soundbars at a big box store before purchasing. I was impressed with the Polk IHT5000 soundbars sound. It was much better than even the more expensive units. Newegg had a great deal on the IHT6000 so I thought I'd give it a shot. Definitely not disappointed, great sound!

5 out of 5 eggsNice sounding bar!

Pros: Punched this on a weekend deal, this sound bar is the best for the money. It replaced a samsung bar I had previously and there is no comparison. Clear voices, powerful natural bass, and the ability to learn remote codes makes it the right choice.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound Bar

Pros: Easy to set up and sounds great! Setting it up for my Logitech Touch remote was a breeze. Purchasing it for $280 (with free shipping) during a 12 hour sale on Labor Day was icing on the cake!

Cons: Only a minor one but you have to use the included remote to change the volume on the subwoofer. Once it's set though no issues.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for great sound, easy setup, and not concerned with *true* 5.1 surround sound, this is the sound bar for you.

5 out of 5 eggsfantastic sound bar

Pros: great sound bar for TV and movies.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought a new TV but I could not use my old Boston Acoustics sound bar (no optical connection). The sound is much better and the thinner design look much better.

I can easily recommend this sound bar to any of my friends.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Bang for the Buck!

Pros: Sound Quality is Stunning. Sub woofer placement and setup is so easy a 1st grader can do it.

Cons: No HDMI Option for plugin

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 of these, 1 for upstairs and 1 for downstairs. Everyone is happy and our 55" LED LG TV has come to life while watching 3D or 2D Movies. I bought this from the "Jungle" place because it was about $30 cheaper at the time these were for sale. Awesome product, awesome HT Setup

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice sound bar!

Pros: I was looking for a solution to poor sound quality out of our 47inch LG television. This is our main viewing TV and is in a small room (converted bedroom to TV/computer room). My wife and I wanted better sound for movies and regular programming bud did NOT want to spend a fortune and hassle with 5.1/7.1 installation. All of our components are hidden and there is only one wire showing from the TV. We wanted to keep the "clean" look as much as possible.

The IHT 6000 sounds great. There isn't any of the tinny sound that I experienced when looking at the Sony HTCT150 and the Samsung. I did like the Boston Acoustics sound but it wasn't nearly as nice as this sound bar. The sub is very powerful and can really shake the room if you want it too. Everything from movies to music to talk shows are just better with this equipment.

Cons: Surprise, it's not surround sound. I didn't expect it to be, and neither should you if you're going with a sound bar option.

The remote isn't as responsive as I'd like it to be. As said earlier, this is in a small room and I still find myself having to move around to get the remote to respond. So if moving your arm around a little could be considered a negative...

Other Thoughts: I was also worried about the wireless sub interfering with the wireless. No problems. Multiple wireless devices throughout the house work perfectly. We use our PS3 to stream Netflix wirelessly, multiple tablets, PS3 controllers, phones.... all work perfectly.

Lastly, I got this on sale from Newegg for $279. That's simply a steal. NE apparently puts them on sale every once in awhile so I'd just keep an eye on it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the (sale) price

Pros: Sounds wonderful for a bar setup. Sure, it doesn't beat a $5,000 theater room, but for $279 it was an insane deal. Even the lower end model sells for more than that, so NewEgg was just being nice?

The setup is easy. Optical in and you're done. The bar will learn your TV remote so you don't have to have a bunch of clutter.

There aren't a lot of options but it sounds fine to my ear. Again, for the price, you won't beat this.

It's nice not to have to switch inputs 50 times or swap out remotes for hours. Works well, sounds great.

The unit itself is very thin and looks sharp. The sub is wireless, so you can hide it anywhere you want.

It even came with all the cables you need to hook it up.

Cons: Not much. I think at $499 it might be a little overpriced, but I haven't compared it to more expensive soundbars. It definitely sounds better than the $100~400 sounbars.

Sitting directly in front of my TV, it blocks my regular TV's IR line of sight. I'll have to raise the TV a bit so the bar doesn't block the remote area.

Other Thoughts: Great bar from a great brand for a great price.

Don't bother with a $79 soundbar. They are garbage, I learned the hard way.
