Grab yourself a bargain, this sounds fantastic and will add decent bass to any flatscreen.

Optisound TV is a powerful subwoofer that combines with your existing TV speakers to enhance your viewing experience for movies, sports, games and TV programmes.

Just one single unit! Amplifier built in and no ugly speakers or wiring on show.

The new way to upgrade your TV to a surround sound system without the hassle or expense of 5.1.

As bass is not directional it appears that there is sound being produced in areas of the room other than just the TV, creating an immersive surround sound experience.

The Optisound TV 6 Digital features a state of the art passive radiator bass reflex cabinet design that provides wide frequency response and smooth bass response. The TV 6 Digital features the same analogue and digital input as the TV 5 digital and also adds a frequency switch that allows the frequency range of the subwoofer to be changed. The 50 Hz setting is ideal for large TV’s while the 80 Hz setting is perfect for small ones.

The VIBE Optisound has been designed to deliver great sound from almost any location. Placing the tv and Optisound in the corner of the room will further increase the sound produced. Plug & Play straight out of the box. Optisound is easy to install in under two minutes using the supplied cable.

Plug and play single cable installation

Optical Digital Input For Optimum Sound Quality (TV5/6 Digital Only)

If you have an available optical or a variable audio output from the tv I see no reason why not.

This sub has an optical input and an audio input.

The soundbar may have a sub output on it also.

I got one recently, and it sounds amazing. My mrs moans about it and my son said its "sick"

would this be a good alternative to a stereo purely for playing off of ipod/iphone?

No, because all you would hear are the bass frequencies. It is an addition to existing regular speakers to add bass.

No Problem, it could be added to an existing hifi to add "car" style bass I guess.

Got one a while back. It is indeed a decent addition to the audio.

Also the 80W one for £19.99.

Don't know about the company though; wanted to pick something up from them, but all stock is in Birmingham not Twickenham.Having said that, it was a quick delivery and they seem to be a decent operation.

Hey, does anyone know if this comes with the analogue cable? cheers!

Didn't realise these existed as normally you can only get the sub-woofer as part of a set. Nice idea but might find some sets mute the internal speakers when this is connected.

Went for the 80W one at £10 less, thanks!

back connections if anyone wanted to know. sorts out all the confusion

The 50 Hz setting is ideal for large TV’s while the 80 Hz setting is perfect for small ones. .. WHy? Because ppl with "small" TV's don't want lower Bass? Strange idea ..

Do you know that the 80watt one for 20 quid was about at the same time people were buying that stupid passive Pioneer subwoofer from Richer Sounds for tenner, its hard to understand the sense of people sometimes.

Cheers for that, exactly what I was looking for!

I wonder how good it sounds, For £30 cannot really go wrong

I have an old 32" LG TV that works perfectly other than the speakers rattle a lot during any bass. The only audio output on the TV is optical. I have never user the optical output as don't have any suitable audio equipment. Is it generally possible to play high frequencies through the TVs own speakers and the bass through something like this or would using the optical out disable the built in speakers?

Can't speak for your tv, but thats the whole idea of this sub, tv speakers for hi frequencies and bass through the sub. I use optical and it doesn't cut the sound off. Afaik optical is usually a balanced signal that you cant turn up or down. You set the sub on the back of it (subtlety in my case) and it just gives flat screens that extra bass that makes it sound great.

It's the crossover between the sound frequencies that the subwoofer will 'take-over' from, not how low the subwoofer will go. IE. On the 80hz settings any frequency below 80hz will be reproduced by the subwoofer, with all above cut off and it'll leave them to be reproduced by your TV. If you set it to 50hz then any frequency above 50hz will be reproduced by the TV and not the subwoofer, if your TV is capable of doing so.

Bearing in mind your TV will still play the frequencies below whatever the crossover is set to, so if you turn it up loud it may still distort.

I doubt most TV speakers can reproduce 80hz better than the subwoofer and so you're probably better leaving the crossover at 80hz rather than 50hz.

From reading some articles on them internets I hear having more than 1 sub is a good idea, how 'good' is this one as I already have a decent 5.1 speaker setup and wanted to add another sub for a fuller room sofa vibration.

It isn't quite as simple as just adding another subwoofer into the mix. Bass frequencies are very long wavelengths and so interact with the room, bouncing off walls and cancelling each other out at certain points and reinforcing each other in other points, creating 'nodes' and 'peaks' respectively. You will notice when you walk around your room that in some places the bass is stronger, and in others it is weaker.

The idea of having multiple subs is to even out these nodes, but if they are not set up correctly then you may just exacerbate the above, they ideally need to be in phase and possibly time-aligned. Providing you are happy to spend a bit of time tinkering, this is achievable.

If you really want to tinker I'd advise downloading something called the REW Room EQ Wizard, which is a 'room simulator'. You pop in your room dimensions, and it can calculate the response of the subwoofer. You can see where it's best in your room, and then add another subwoofer into the mix and play with the positioning, and see if this has a decent effect. You may find that you get the experience you desire with your current sub simply by moving the sub around the room.

If you're not happy to faff around with that, you can do the subwoofer 'crawl', though do this when noone is in and mention it to noone. You'd pop the subwoofer where your main listening position is, and then literally crawl around the room and hear where the bass is strongest, which indicates the best position for the subwoofer. This may well be nowhere convenient, in which case use your common sense.

If you're just after sofa shake, look at "Buttshakers", which are 'lil transducers you attach to the bottom of your sofa and give you the rumble you desire, without the faff of the above.

Given this subwoofer is so cheap you could always buy it to play around with. Just be aware that at the price it's hardly particularly 'good' given you're at the point of considering multiple subwoofers, and I suspect you'd be better off just maximising your existing subs potential or putting it towards an upgrade than having a second subwoofer of this calibre.

In a small-ish room, is there any advantage to going for the 100W rather than the cheaper 80W?

Would Sony w955 work along this sub? I mean both internal speakers and sub:)

Another £30 I didn't need to spend! Whoops

My Yamaha AV amplifier has a single phono socket marked Subwoofer which I think is intended for the connection of a dedicated Yamaha Sub such as a Yamaha YST-FSW100. Would this work instead as it seems to have stereo inputs?
