For just normal TV watching, would you recommend getting a subwoofer? Or would that be overkill? I don't watch a lot of action movies or things with loud bass so I'm hesitant to drop an extra $100 for the soundbar/subwoofer package. Also, do you know if I would be able to control the soundbar with my Comcast remote or will I have to add the Pinnacle remote to my already overflowing collection of remotes? Thanks for your help!
Hi good morning. By definition, a SOUNDBAR is designed to give you back the sound stripped from the newer TV's in order to make them 1-2" thin. Pinnacle SOUNDBARS go much further than that in performance. So, our FRONTROWPBAR6200 will provide you far better sound for watching TV than anything in the TV itself. We do always suggest the powered SUBWOOFER cause it will provide considerably more fullness to any TV show, sport event, or movie. It also is going to provide full range sound for music listening. If the only purpose is to watch basic TV, the FRONTROWPBAR6200 is a big step up from the TV. Looking forward, we think you would appreciate the versatility and improved performance with the Subwoofer.
Bear in mind that this WOOT Special is compressing the relative differences in price. For $100 more you are buying $300 more in product and performance.
As to remotes, here is a current posting from our site of our remote compatability with various companies.
If you have a remote from UNIVERSAL REMOTE corporation that 1 remote will accept ours and probably all your other remotes. Our remote will work specifically with our product for on/off and volume.
So, in a nutshell, the FRONTROWSYS8210 will provide considerably more performance for only $100 here, for what should be a $300 price difference.
