Looking at JBL Bar 5.1 vs Sony HT-Z9F its first strong point is connected with a real wireless subwoofer (up to 300 W) and a 25-cm speaker. The second plus of JBL Bar 5.1 is based on its removable surround speakers, working wirelessly for 10 hours. The soundbar is equipped with three pairs of 6 x 5.7 cm bass midrange speakers and three 3.2 cm tweeters distributed across the three front channels (left, right and center). Each channel is amplified by a special power module with a total peak power of 300 watts. This corresponds to a peak of 50W per channel or continuous power of 20 watts, good enough for this type of speaker.
Usually Dolby Atmos-enabled soundbars have integrated high-pitched speakers (pointing up), but the Sony HT-ZF9 deviates from this concept. Its design is 3.1-channel, based on sound processing by a digital processor (DSP), a soundbar with an extension of the sound field to a volume of 7.1.2 channels. Concerning the comparison Sony HT-Z9F vs JBL Bar 5.1, its power is 400W and it features 3.1 built-in channels. There is DRC (dynamic range compression), but it is better not to use it.
The JBL Bar 5.1 is better soundbar in this comparison. Check JBL Bar 5.1 price
