What is a soundbar?
Soundbars are placed in front of the TV and it contains all the technology that is required for an engrossing and powerful audio set up. People get this additional device due to the fact that the new Ultra HD TV that we purchase do not have a good sound quality, because these slender televisions cannot accommodate so much like the subwoofer tech, hence they just make use of the basic sound output most times.
For this reason, many people now look for an external speaker that can boost their cinema experience at home. if you're in need of an all-in-one setup, a soundbar is still the best option. we're grateful for the minimalist design and affordable price point.
What can the Sky Soundbox do?
Some of the unique features, which includes the different modes that control your audio to suit a given situation, can be found within the Skybox menu.
Dialogue Enhance is one of the features of skybox, which is created to allow for a more clear voice audio. This means that one does not need to crank up the volume to be able to hear what the characters are saying during a conversation, even when they're almost whispering.
Late Night Mode is yet another unique feature that's suitable for family use. In this mode the parents can watch a movie late at night without worrying but waking the kids up. This mode works by enhancing quiet whispers and limiting the bass to create a clear sound that only exist within the room.
kids Mode simply creates a maximum volume which the children can get out of the soundbox. the limiter is set by the parents and without worrying about the house being blasted down by the kids, they can leave the remote control with them.
The Soundbox can automatically adapt to pre-set Sky Q Sound modes as designed by Devialet, for those using a Sky Q subscription. It is ideal for variations between sport and movies
It's also reported by Recombu that while Sky has recently announced that it will add Dolby Atmos support to its Sky Q boxes, it’s worth noting that the Soundbox won’t support this feature.

The Sky Soundbox packs in six 3-inch dual push-push woofers, as well as three 2-inch full-range drivers in a 120 degree configuration, all neatly contained within a closed cabinet setup.
