Triple Sound Technology

LG’s Triple Sound Technology has three features: 

Triple Up-Firing Speakers: With left/right and center channel speakers, the sound stage is more immersive and dialog is more present. 

Triple Level Spatial Sound: This employs channel analysis performed by an HRTF-based 3D engine to add a virtual mid-layer. The result is an incredibly lifelike sound with a convincing sense of space that puts listeners at the center of an immersive audio environment.

Triple Sound Optimizer: This feature is designed to boost the soundbars’ performance – and enjoy upgraded sound via the Smart Up-mixer, which converts two-channel audio into multi-channel surround.

Enhanced AI Room Calibration

LG’s enhanced AI Room Calibration brings room correction capability to soundbars. This feature analyzes the circumstance of the room, then applies that information to the soundbars’ settings to deliver greater precision in the low-frequency range. It also subdivides the front channel frequencies to help improve overall balance, the clarity of vocal performances, movie dialogue, and the accuracy of the sound image.

AI Sound Pro

If all of the above audio performance features weren’t enough, The SC9 and SE6 soundbars also include LG’s advanced AI Sound Pro which was introduced in 2021. This feature analyzes audio signals in real-time and automatically applies the most appropriate settings. This ensures optimal sound for movies, sports, games, or music.

Home Dashboard

LG’s premium soundbars also bring an intuitive interface to the Home Dashboard on LG TVs, enabling users to easily manage their soundbar’s settings and share sound modes using the TV.

Tip: Home Dashboard functionality will be applied via software update.

Video Features

In addition to audio, the SC9, and SE6 soundbar also support HDMI video pass-through (up to 4K/120Hz) as well as VRR to reduce screen tearing, and ALLM to eliminate lag. This is great news for gamers that want to add a soundbar with video connectivity to their setup.

Exterior Design

In addition to an expanded feature set and greater ease of use, the new soundbars have an exterior design that complements the minimalist look of LG’s latest TVs and fits in with a wide variety of décors.

A new bracket enables users to place an LG Soundbar directly below LG TVs. The bracket which connects to the rear panel of a compatible LG TV, can be used to wall-mount or stand-mount the new soundbars at a height or location that ensures the best sound experience for TV viewing. The bracket helps to keep the viewing environment free from cable clutter and saves users the hassle of having to drill holes in the wall while still providing a wall-mounted look.
