Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Just another person with a failed subwoofer

Bassless1 12/2/2022

I was happy with the sound for the price and unit was reliable until recently. I thought my subwoofer disconnected from sound bar but it seems my subwoofer just stopped working. It will not pair no indicator / display light and no sound. Makes a strange short whining noise when I power down. Spoke with LG service who was very nice but all they could do is direct me to a repair service. People on line seem to attribute issue to a firm ware update. I have many LG products and this is the first issue Ive had with a product being unusable before a reasonable useful life.

KIrkDean 11/14/2022

I bought the LG SN9YG in June 2020 not sure when the subwoofer stopped working since I was away from the home for over 7-months. When I returned in May 2022 the subwoofer would not pair. The sub makes a weird noise once connected to power but that is all. I called LG and since the purchase was over a year no replacement was offered. Great sound when the unit worked properly.

Disappointed in LG products - Subwoofer died

EastonGent 10/22/2022

In less than two years of ownership of the unit the Subwoofer died. Could not figure out why it wasnt paired with the soundbar. After investigating and doing a quick web search I realized the subwoofer was dead. It made a strange sound when powering down basically unplugged the unit from the wall socket. Seems as if Im not the only one with this same issue - dead subwoofer

Thulinski 9/21/2022

The sub woofer stopped working so I had to package that and remove the sound bar from the wall to ship back to LG. That has been another disaster so far.

jw27081 8/2/2022

The soundbar itself is nice but the subwoofer is so quiet I cant even tell if its on. After seeing some of the other reviews I believe I may have gotten a faulty subwoofer.

Subwoofer Failure

SpkDak 7/13/2022

Purchased SN9YG w/bluetooth subwoofer back November 2020....sad to say subwoofer has already failed. Many reviews online indicate known issues with the LG subwoofer SPN8-W....hardware issue with circuit board causing bass function failure. Contacted LG directly.....jumped thru troubleshooting hoops with no result. Final response from LG......take it to local service center have it repaired your cost....to bad so sad......thanks for your business

Subwoofer died after 14 months LG refuses to fix

Subwoofer Failure 6/21/2022

Everything set up easily and sounded great. I bought this as a package deal at Best Buy along with a 55 inch LG TV. I own two other LG TVs and LG washer and dryer. Ive always liked the brand and expected they would stand behind their product but that was not the case here. The subwoofer completely failed at about 14 months. The warranty is 12 months but I contacted LG through Facebook messenger to see if they would help at all. After about a week of back-and-forth they refused to cover repairing or replacing the subwoofer. Because of this I will never purchase another LG product and I would not recommend doing so to anyone.

GREAT Repair Service

CALee 4/14/2022

I purchased my LG sound bar and sub-woofer together at Best Buy and unfortunately within 6 months I had an issue with the sub-woofer first not connecting to the sound bar then not powering on at all. I contact LG and they sent me a box to put the sound bar and sub-woofer into to send for repair and within 1 week I received the repaired equipment back and it all works now... Thank you for such great service

MSG TC 3/23/2022

I bought this unit along with LG OLED 65 inch tv. The sound bar alone is great but the sub would not pair up. Contacted LG and was issued a return for repair. Got it back and the unit paired up and worked as it should. The customer service I had was professional and prompt. I am very pleased.

Unreliable product customer service

JDubois 2/19/2022

I bought this set back in 6/4/21 at best Buy. Couple of months later the wireless subwoofer is already creating issues. It would not pair and work. Called the LG customer support on the phone. First of all they cant send someone to diagnose their products second they need to send you a return label to ship your sound bar for diagnostic takes about 3 weeks or more. So you purchase an LG product and when it breaks you are not getting sound on your tv for a while. Hum.. Also I am now in my third attempts to receive the return label. No more LG products for their Home theater scope. I do have a washer and dryer from LG and it is fantastic Sorry LG

Died after 12.5 months due to firmware update

bobsyouruncle987 1/19/2022

For 12 months the sound bar worked as expected. Cant say I noticed the Atmos portions of the sound bar but it sound good. Then shortly after my warranty expired LG pushed a firmware update which has made my sound bar a pile of junk. Ive emailed chatted and called LG with nothing but failed promises to repair the device. Because of this I actually returned other LG products I bought around the holidays.

Great sound lackluster Atmos sound

Gibgerbread 1/14/2022

I bought this unit over a year ago and throughly enjoy this unit. I also purchased the rear speakers to make it a simulated 9.1 system. The sound is absolutely fantastic but watching movies in Atmos the upper speakers dont really create that depth sound that actual ceiling speakers would. I would also say the overall sound lacks warmth and can come off a little tinny but overall for the price its an amazing systme.

DisappointedNFL 1/12/2022

Biggest mistake was buying this soundbar and having to call LG customer service 4 times over the course of a month and they still have not yet been able to send shipping materials. Even if their products were outstanding having to deal with their customer service is one thing I will never do again.

Started off Great. Sub stopped working

Shane Willow 12/9/2021

I bout this back in 04/21 and had Best Buy do the install and mount it all to the wall. I noticed at the start of the football season that the sound was missing depth. that is when I found that my subwoofer was not working. I am now going through the process with LG Support to trouble shoot the unit and possibly send in for repair. After what I have read on here I am thinking of swaping out for a different unit / vendors soundbar and sub all together. I like the Idea of a matched set but it is not worth the stress if the sub goes out again.
