LG SN5Y Reviews

Subwoofer stopped working

By kfisher779

I was initially happy with the SN5Y for the quality sound it produced but a year after purchase I could no longer pair the subwoofer to the soundbar. I found many people with the exact same problem and despite following the recommended troubleshooting techniques the subwoofer will not work. I have multiple LG products which have all served me well until now. I would be very cautious buying this product.

The subwoofer stopped connections after a year. It’s out of warranty so I’m sure I’m just out of luck. It’s really upsetting because I bought two surround speaker modules to go with it and now that money is wasted too.

Good until it was updated

Worked great until it was updated and then there was a mass amount of units failing because of bad control boards so we had to buy an 80 dollar board to fix it.

This is third change of my soundbar . First 2 was damaged within couple of month so can be exchanged under warranty but this time it went more than a year subwoofer stopped working. The only reason bought this is i have LG tv and it is compatible with that tv otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it . Made a big mistake and this is first and last time for LG products . 

Is this dual sub compatibile?

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this product to go with an OLED 65 that I purchased earlier in the month. The sound from the TV was great but the addition of the sound bar made it absolutely phenomenal! I don’t usually listen to music channels but with this sound bar I can’t resist. It’s like the artist are in the room with you; the same goes for movies and sporting events. Incredible!
