In this guide we will talk about the best TV speakers belonging to a budget price range. An inexpensive TV speaker or soundbar is a great alternative to a full surround system. Soundbars are interesting tools, since in addition to improving the sound quality of the TV, they will take up very little space. Almost all the models on the market, in fact, can be positioned in front of the screen or act as a support for it. Other models can also be hung directly on the wall, next to or above the TV, depending on your space requirements.

The speakers built into modern ultra-flat TVs have very limited acoustics. Therefore, it becomes essential to have a TV speaker. It will enhance your audio and allow you to enjoy watching movies, sports, documentaries or listening to music to the fullest. Many soundbars will also allow you to stream Bluetooth audio.

In addition to the limited footprint, the soundbars are also pleasant and captivating from a purely aesthetic point of view. These speakers are perfect to be placed even in small rooms as opposed to 7.1-channel systems. Despite the limited measures, they guarantee an acoustic performance many times truly amazing, so that the audio can penetrate and be clear in every direction.

Soundbars differ based on several characteristics. In addition to the shape and size, they vary according to the available functions and, of course, the price. They range from models that can be purchased at a price around 100 euros up to sound bars with a price of over 1000 euros. In this guide we will only describe the cheapest, but at the same time qualitative, models.

Obviously, the cheaper the model, the more basic its functions and connections will be. Many models have a subwoofer available, a type of speaker that allows you to reproduce only the low frequencies. They are perfect for enhancing audio when watching a movie or listening to music. Each TV speaker is equipped with several components, designed to improve the acoustics. There are often 3 speakers (tweeter, woofer and midrange) as well as bass reflex ducts and much more. An important accessory to consider also concerns the remote control, so that all functions can be managed remotely and the volume can be adjusted.
