The Subwoofer has a width of 170mm, a height of 380mm and a depth of 306mm. The sleek design combined with the bass boosting capabilities makes this soundbar a worthy addition to your home.

Sound Quality

The power output of the device is 120W.   The sound quality is the biggest plus point for this soundbar. It provides crystal clear HD sound.  It has a signal to noise ratio (SNR) of 72dB. To get the best HD sound output, use the HDMI cable for connecting it to your TV because the 3.5mm cable is bound to suffer losses.


The 120W soundbar has a subwoofer that delivers heavy bass and loud volume. The soundbar itself produces amazing bass. Add the subwoofer to the mix and you will get up to three times as much bass. The crystal clear sound with awesome bass is just what we need when we pay over 6ooo bucks for a speaker and it is just what we get with the MarQ soundbar.

The thumping bass from the home theater subwoofers should not be expected from this subwoofer. The bass from this sub is more of a support for the sound from the soundbar

The sound quality is amazing with the output having high bass with little to no distortions whatsoever at mid volumes. If you continuously listen at maximum volume, some distortions are bound to creep up. But it is a common problem with all mid-range soundbars. The Bass and Treble can be controlled. The bass quality is above average with all detailed beats and drops and thumps audible.

A con for this soundbar is that at maximum volume, the quality of bass slightly deteriorates. Vocals, Mid and High frequencies are clear enough and the sound is very loud.
