$250 Sound Bars: VIZIO S4221w vs. ZVOX 350 Soundbase Review

As HDTVs become paper thin with nearly invisible edges, there is very little room for internal TV speakers. That’s why it’s practically a no-brainer to improve TV audio with a sound bar or sound base. In this review we examine two options that each cost $250. The VIZIO S4221w-C4 is a 42-inch soundbar that comes with a wireless subwoofer. Meanwhile, the ZVOX 350 SoundBase sits under your TV instead of in front of it. 

The VIZIO S4221w sound bar should be positioned directly in front of your TV. The wireless subwoofer can be placed anywhere in your room, but needs to be plugged into a power outlet. Hooking up the soundbar requires just one optical cable connection from the back of your TV into the sound bar, along with a power cable. Once it’s turned on, the sound bar automatically locates the wireless sub and everything just starts working, kudos! This video by VIZIO below explains it all.
