Features

Frequency response is 45 Hz - 20 kHz. The ZVOX SB380 has a built-in 4″ subwoofer alongside three full-range speakers and a 45 Watt digital amplifier. The ZVOX SB380 packs in a few audio features that help enhance dialogue. The SB380 uses “AccuVoice dialogue boosting technology” to make dialogue louder and more distinct. It also has an output leveling system that “tames loud commercials,” while PhaseCue virtual surround “delivers room-filling 3D sound”.

Design and build

The ZVOX SB380 is relatively compact with a slim aluminum cabinet that measures 35.5″ w x 5.7″ h x 3.3″ d. This is no shabby plastic speaker, but unfortunately it’s also pretty bland and ordinary looking. The good news is that while its design is not very exciting, its rectangular look is clean and minimalist enough that it should blend it with just about every home theater setup. Display on front is hidden under the grille and text and numerals light up when changes are made. Easy to see where you are in relation to maximum volume.

Connectivity

The soundbar can connect to your TV using two optical digital inputs or one analog (RCA jacks) input. The system lacks Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and other wireless connections. A remote is included, but the soundbar should also work with most remote controls.

Setup

It can be placed in a low profile position flat on its back — that makes it a perfect complement for TVs with low stands. It can also be mounted, so in total the SB380 can be installed three different ways. None of those three ways involve placing a subwoofer — the ZVOX SB380 is just a simple single piece system that doesn’t require any external units.

Cons
