Only 2.0...waste of money. You need 3.0 to have dedicated center channel for dialogue.
Omg. Please stop.

Maybe it's the skeptic in me, but I suspect this sounds "better" than the TV because it is nothing more than the same exact cheap speakers and amp already in most VIZIO tv's, except it is oriented so the drivers face you, instead of facing the floor or the wall. Take any good sounding speaker and face it away from you or toward the floor and it will sound like crap. I have down firing speakers on one of my VIZIO tv's mounted on my wall. I'm thinking about experimenting with a wide but thin strip of wood placed under the bottom of the tv and angled 45 degrees to reflect the sound toward me to see whether it makes an improvement.

Please stop. What r u even talking about?! Do u even know what a center channel speaker is for? It is for anchoring center channel sounds to the location of the display for people who are not centrally seated in front of the display or are closer to either of the front left or right main speakers. There is ZERO need for a center speaker when the two front speakers are only a couple feet apart and are actually both right under the display. I don't blame you for being ignorant of the actual purpose of a center speaker. It's a common misconception.

Search around - I've little doubt some audiophile nut has 3D-printed something with the precise optimum shape & angle for redirecting the sound forward. They no doubt are selling it for "only" $1K... Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

A family member has one of these. It's honestly pretty bad. They end up cranking the volume to better hear dialogue, which makes it sound worse because the speakers in it just can't keep it all together at higher volumes, and dialogue is still not that clear.

Better than internal TV speakers since they're firing toward you, but that's not saying much. This model is best suited to a quiet environment in a smaller room where you're sitting close, possibly a bedroom or spare room.

Fine. That has nothing to do with it being 2.0 vs 3.0. Most tv's these days have either audio presets or an actual equalizer. Turning down the highest and lowest frequencies "can" help dialog intelligibility since it is mostly midrange. Soundbars usually don't have EQ's but will sometimes have audio settings like "Voice" that basically tones down the upper and lower frequencies. Turning OFF all other audio "features" such as fake surround sound, etc. can help too.

Lol. Probably. A simple flat strip of any hard material should work for my experiment. A long strip of clear lexan about 6" wide and with a bend along the long central axis of about 135 degrees would allow you to use double sided tape to hold it to the back of the tv and still direct the sound from down firing speakers straight ahead 👌🏼. I should sell those on amazon! Actually, it doesn't have a to extend the entire width of the TV for other than aesthetic reasons. It only has to be slightly wider than the speakers themselves.

We have the Vizio 2.1 system in our huge great room and have been completely happy with it. We do not use the sub as we find it to be too bass heavy, with no adjustment available. But the sound bar provides better, louder, more clear sound than the tv speakers we placed it under ever would. Been thinking about getting this one for the bedroom. So many threadcrappers out today...

However, this one is much smaller I'm length than others out there. It won't spread the sound as good as some of the wider ones out there. Ours is closer to around 40" or so I think.

Flip the sound bar around, mount it under the Tv and point it at the wall and listen to it. Do the same experiment with it pointed at the floor. Did it still sound better?

OMG! You're officially "that guy!"

JK (sorta).

When you sell that, your seller profile name should be "The Frugal Audiophile."
