I sought an economical replacement for my soundbar and a family member recommended the JVC 2.1 Ch Soundbar from BigW for my 10 year old TV.
It’s a good 2 piece unit consisting of the sound bar and a sub woofer.
The age of my TV required a little work around to get optimal sound quality, so I invested in an Optical to RCA adapter from Jaycar. After that, in less than 10 minutes, the device was set up, and premium sound was mine.
They key for any User is to find the best EQ setting for them, a few of the settings are great for movies with booming bass sound but there are settings available that make speech clearer.
Purchased in July 2021 for $110.00.

Don't waste your money!!
Don't waste your money! Turns off every 15 minutes constantly turning it back on! Sounds good but can't watch a movie without stopping it every 15 mins to turn the sound bar back on!
Purchased in March 2021 for $120.00.

Works well. Easy to set up and use. Although it doesn't go that loud when watching movies. I like the fact when it's off and turnt back on its at a low volume
Purchased in February 2019 for $149.00.
Great, fine look and works well
Very happy with our purchase. Works well, looks great, fits perfectly under the TV. It does what it is supposed to, easy to use, can connect it to our phones which is a plus.

Do not waste your time or money
As a unit on the shelf, it looked too good to be true. Specs are good, price is well priced,
the first one of these I had worked for one movie,
The sound was room filling and for the price, I was beyond happy.
I turned it off went to bed. next day the subwoofer would not respond only the bar, which without the sub lacks any substance.
I took it back quite frustrated, Big W was more than helpful after I explained the issue. Bearing in mind I had already been in for a refund of the model down for just crapping out on me. I upgraded to a...nother dud. The second one worked for 5 minutes and the bar stopped working this time, took it back again, once again felt suspicious as I had already brought back two JVC soundbars before. They refunded me and I purchased a Samsung sound-bar
Taking back for refund
Hooked it up to my tv turned it up as loud as i can and can hardly hear it. Not at all what i expected. Rang jvc they agreed its not flash. Wouldnt bother for tv. Bluetooth sounds louder but would not get excited about the volume. My tv performs better without it. It is cheap and you get what you pay for but i did expect it to be able to hear a difference.
This is a compact unit which looks good. Good bass overall the sound is average. Cannot get it to play very loud so wouldn't be good for a large room. Overall disappointing but it is in the low price range.
Questions & Answers
I have just purchased this and have found that the speakers are producing a fuzzy feedback noise intermittently (like an out of tune radio signal). Thought it was only when radio on but happened while watching tv. What could be causing this?
My remote is broken can you please advice with app I can use ?
