ilive sound bar honest review Here we found many issues. If you see any information online that talks about this brand like it is a great brand, you should check that info twice because many people are complaining about many their products and customer service. Please check out details below.
Cons Chords Too Short
This home theater system has okay sound, decent build quality, and is an okay size, but the chords to the speakers are way too short. You may need to buy some speaker wire to use with this system. If you have a TCL Rokue TV, DO NOT buy this. I own this type of TV and the aux plugin on the TV and the aux plugin on the subwoofer are 2 DIFFERENT types. Also this wont be able to bluetooth to the TV, but havent tried with a bluetooth receiver for my TV.
ilive Sound Bar Sometimes Won’t Connect To Smart TV
Many customers who have purchased this product complained that ilive Sound Bar would not connect to their smart tv. So if you are planning to purchase this, make sure that it is compatible with your TV before getting one.
Remote Control Speakers Work Intermittently
Remote only works 1 out of ten times. Speakers work off and on. It’s hot and miss when anything works. For the money this soundbar maybe great for some people but we did not like the way it was functioning. But another down side is TV remote interferes with the control of the speakers. When I push the info button, it shuts the home theater off. When I channel up or down, it changes the home theater selection to where I have to change it back.
Horrible Customer Service
One of the customers who was having problems with remote control called the manufacturer, but they were rude and told the customer it was their problem because she had no where to relocate the home theater unit to where the TV remote didn’t interfere. By the time customer hung up they were so angry. So obviously, ilive company customer service isn’t there to fix your issues. They are there to shove theses poorly made products down your throat.
ilive Sound Bar Sound
The sound is very weak, we tried turned it all the way up it’s still not loud. Probably the amplifier is too weak to produce any real sound. Sub woofer does not have much bass at all which is another sign that these speakers are really weak. Lastly but definitely not the least, again, the rear speakers do not have a long enough cord. Could not get more than 10 feet away, so the system can go as far as front left, more front left, center, front right and more front right!
The wires are too short, and too complicated to use. Too many wires to set up and doesn’t even come ready to connect to a TV as soon as you open it. The volume is so low it’s better to use your TV instead. Better to get a more pricey system than this. Try to avoid it if you can.
