Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi, I'm Nathan.Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.
To be honest, there is no "solution" to this, the tv speakers are small and underpowered so they simply won't be loud or clear in most situations, especially if you have a large room.
You'll find this to be the case with most all modern flat screen tvs, and as they continue to get thinner and thinner, the problem with sound gets worse.
The only answer here is to supplement the tv with an external soundsystem. All tv manufacturers really expect you to have some external sound system.
The cheap bar speaker you bought is likely little better than the built in ones, again being small and under powered.
If you can tell me a bit more about the size of the room, distance of seating from the tv, etc I can recommend a sound system that would be better suited to your situation.
Thanks for the info, that makes sense, that is a very large room and long distance from the tv.
You'd be best off with a surround sound type system that would have some speakers back by your listening/seating area, if possible.
There are a lot of options here, from smaller wireless systems to full scale home theater/surround systems.
If you have the ability to run wiring from the front of the room to rear speakers, or even to have recessed speakers installed in the walls/ceilings that is ideal, though of course costs more but gives the best results. Would either of these interest you?
