LG Sound Bar Sound Effects [2024 Updated]

LG has been making soundbars for a long time; they started making them in 2009. They make all kinds of soundbars comprising different specs and prices. LG is one of the biggest suppliers of soundbars globally, with an ever-increasing demand for soundbars.

More and more people are buying soundbars because it gives the feel of theatre with their Dynamic sound system in an affordable range.

If you don’t have the budget to buy an expensive sound system but don’t want to settle for internal speakers for TV, then a soundbar is an ideal option. 

LG Soundbar Sound Effects

Like all soundbars, the LG soundbar has different sound effect options, which you can select according to the content you are watching or your mood. 

What are Sound Effects of a Soundbar?

Sound effects can simply be defined as the mode or settings that vary how the sound is delivered from the soundbar. Sound effects help you get the best experience from the stuff you are watching by adjusting the volume automatically by sensing. 

LG soundbar has many different sound effects from which you can select. Some of them are:

ASC (Adaptive Sound Control)

Adaptive Sound Control, also known as AI Sound Pro, analyses the sound’s real-time input and delivers the optimized sound as the output. ASC senses four motions: transport, walking, running, and sitting, and adjusts the volume accordingly. What ACS does is lower the magnitude of the higher volume scenes from the content and higher the volume of the softer noise scenes.

It is best to use it if you are trying to sleep on a movie or just feeling exhausted from listening to loud noises. This is especially useful when watching an action movie, as it extinguishes the constant struggle of increasing the volume in lighter dialogues and decreasing the volume during the fighting scenes. 

Bass Blast

As suggested by its name, this mode increases the bass of the music you play on the LG soundbar. It does not randomly increase the music’s bass value by optimizing it just right and increasing the amount of bass so that it sounds right.

Bass Blast mode is best when you have a party at your place and don’t have a party sound system. LG bass blast got your back.

Clear Voice

Transparent Voice mode enhances the voice clearness of the content that you play on it. Listening to podcasts and conversations with the Clear Voice mode is best. Clear Voice removes any background noises and makes it feel like the conversation is taking place in your place.

With this mode, you can focus on the conversation and absorb all the knowledge the conversationalists have to offer. 

DTS Virtual X (Cinametic Mode)

DTS Virtual X

In my opinion, this is the best mode of LG soundbars and justifies the price you pay for your soundbar. DTS Virtual X, also called cinematic mode, creates a 3D sound environment without additional speakers. DTS Virtual uses different techniques to create an immersive sound to trick your brain into where the sound is being initiated.

These techniques include intricating audio cues and creating phantom height channels that cause to give a feel of a three-dimensional sound. DTS Virtual is good for watching movies and action shows, the 3D sound gives that adrenaline rush, and you feel like you are watching it in the cinema. 

Game Mode

Gaming with excellent surround sound enhances the experience and makes it closer to reality. When playing games on your PlayStation or Xbox, you can turn your LG soundbar to Game mode and create a better relationship with the game graphics. 


And then, there is a standard sound mode which you can use for random stuff like news, sports, sitcoms, etc. The standard method also has some sense of immersive sound which makes everyday content more enjoyable.

You can adjust all the values of your own will in this mode. You can turn up the bass or treble of the sound to create a private sound mode. 


One thing you should keep in mind while using LG soundbars is that you should always turn off the internal speakers of your TV to get the best experience from your soundbar. It might occur to you that you should use internal speakers as they can give extra sound and make the overall sound louder.

But the reason behind that is the sound coming from internal speakers might have a different pitch, and it does not have a 3D effect so it will ruin your soundbar sound quality.

How to Change Modes of LG Soundbars?

If you are using an LG soundbar with an LG TV, switching between modes can be done from your TV screen. You can just go to ‘settings’ and find ‘sound modes’; from there, you can switch between the modes.

But if you are using an LG soundbar with some other TV, you have to use the soundbar’s remote to change the modes. You can also connect your soundbar with your mobile phone app and control all settings.
