  • Heavy bass with a subwoofer
  • Processes 4K, 8K including Blu-Ray contents
  • The installation process is user-friendly

Audio & Video Cable Connection

Connect the port out with the iLive soundbar and locate the in port back of the TV. The corresponding ports must be located accordingly. 

Also, the plug-in connection system is the same as we mentioned for HDMI. Place the ports properly with the ports of the soundbar and TV.

  • Red – Audio
