Solid soundbar ROCKS!I saw a great deal for this LG SL9YG soundbar on BuyDig.com, so I chose it over a comparable Samsung soundbar. So far I am pleased with the features - great sound. I use a Optima HD p projector with screen size 110 inches, so the soundbar - although large in length fits fine with my setup. I have it located under the bottom of my projector screen, so the audio I'm using is the optical cable connection. One feature that I like, is the soundbar automatically turns on when I turn on my projector. So it senses the live optical and turns on. One feature LG should add in the future is a subwoofer button on the remote control soley to fine tune the bass level adjustment.

Dolby Vision Passthrough Appears LimitedI just bought a Nvidia Shield Pro to go with my setup and plugged in via the SL9YG will only output Dolby Vision at 24Hz, but plugged directly into my LG B8 allows Dolby Vision at 60Hz but I loose some of the sound bar features. Not great, I specifically purchased a LG sound bar thinking this would be the most compatible setup.

The loud stuff sound awesome.The loud stuff sound awesome. The low sounds like speech are too quiet. It doesn't matter which mode its in but the difference between music or action vs dialogue is so bad that I have to keep adjusting the volume up and down constantly. I would return it if I could and would not recommend this sound bar unless this fixed via firmware update.

Where do you recommend placing the subwoofer in a large family room ~ 20' x20'?

The Subwoofer for the LG SL9Y 4.1.2 Channel 500W Sound Bar w/ Meridian Technology & Dolby Atmos is omnidirectional so it can be placed anywhere in your room where there is nothing that interferes with the signal. Bluetooth has a range of 10m (33 feet), but your furniture, a router, microwave oven, electrical conduits within your walls and other objects may attenuate that distance. You will nee to test a few loacations in your room to find the best location. The closer the Subwoofer is to the main unit, the better the connection...^IFV
