Today's Best Prime Day soundbar deals

Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?

Complete your home theater upgrade early this year and shop on Prime Day. We also don't anticipate prices differing by much on Black Friday in comparison to what we'll see on Prime Day, so there's no use in waiting.

If you do have a favorite in mind as well it's possible that your chosen soundbar won't see a restock for Black Friday or Cyber Monday if it sells out this Prime Day. With massive shipping delays due to increased demand on Black Friday, you also might not receive your product for a few weeks. Save yourself the trouble and treat yourself to a new soundbar by taking advantage of these Prime Day soundbar deals.

Are any Prime Day soundbar deals too good to be true?

As with shopping for any big tech product, make sure you put in a little research beforehand on the soundbar you want.

Check which brands you prefer and what their offerings are for home theater products. Also, make sure to check the review and ratings of your chosen soundbar on Prime Day. When buying tech products like these, always go with household names.

Stick to the brands you know instead of purchasing a soundbar from a company you've never heard of before. This way you'll save yourself a lot of disappointment while shopping during Prime Day.

How to choose a soundbar

Soundbars are a great addition to any home theater setup, but there are a lot of options out there. Here are a few tips to help you shop the best Prime Day soundbar deals available.

Subwoofers: Some high-quality soundbars come with their own dedicated subwoofer. What is a subwoofer you ask? Well, it's a device that helps enhance low-frequency sounds to amplify bass when you're watching an action-packed movie or TV show.

If you choose not to buy a soundbar with a subwoofer and are looking to purchase one separately, check out our guide to the best subwoofers out there. Also, make sure your soundbar has a dedicated subwoofer output -- not all of them do. Connectivity: Most soundbars only require a single cable for connectivity but be sure to always choose a soundbar that supports HDMI connections.

HDMI supports more audio formats than an optical interface so you're automatically guaranteed higher quality sound. Some newer soundbars have HDMI ARC as well which allows you to control your soundbar and TV, often with a single remote. It's not necessary for your soundbar to have this option but if you're looking for easier, more streamlined control, go with it.

Channels: When you're shopping for a soundbar you're going to come across numbers like 5.1 or 2.0. Simply put, the number before the period specifies the number of channels your device has -- the more the better. The number after the period species if your soundbar comes with a subwoofer.

Ergo, 5.1 tells you that your device has five channels and one subwoofer so you're in for a highly immersive sound experience. Some soundbars have a third number involved, this usually refers to Dolby Atmos Surround Sound -- the best surround sound technology currently out there. So if you see a soundbar with 7.1.2 sound, that's the closest you'll get to in-theater sound experience.

Bluetooth: If your soundbar has Bluetooth connectivity you can easily hook it up to any of your devices and bang out your favorite tunes as well. Your soundbar doesn't just have to enhance the sound on your videos, you can use it primarily for listening to music as well. Smart soundbars: Want more from your soundbar?

Some soundbars come with streaming software like Roku so you can use your device to stream TV as well as enhance your sound. This way you don't have to worry about a larger complicated setup where you need to buy additional cable boxes for streaming -- this is all in one. Certain soundbars can also work with Google Assistant or Alexa making them completely hands-free.
