Unboxing the Vizio SB362An-F6

Unboxing the Vizio SB362An-F6

Unboxing the Vizio soundbars doesn’t test your patience, especially the entry-level profiles, like this 36-inch model and the 29-inch model.

The soundbar is not heavy; neither it holds anything extra nor unexpected that can surprisingly raise its weight. So we opened the package without any further ado and found a soundbar packed with lots of stuff to keep it safe.

We also found a remote, but no batteries were included. However, there were a couple of cables, including the power cord. We also found a user manual to get it started without any confusion.

Size and Design

Size and Design of VIZIO SB362An-F6

The Vizio SB362An-F6 is a sleek and compact soundbar designed to fit seamlessly into your entertainment setup. The soundbar measures 36 inches in length, making it a good match for TVs around 40 to 50 inches.

It’s also lightweight, weighing in at just 7.5 pounds, which makes it easy to handle and mount on a wall if desired. Besides, the simple, minimalist design complements most modern TV sets.

The front of the soundbar is covered in a black mesh fabric that adds a touch of elegance to the overall look. The control buttons are located on the top of the soundbar and are easy to reach, giving you quick access to the most frequently used features.

Channel System

The Vizio SB362An-F6 is a 2.1-channel soundbar that features two front-firing speakers and dual built-in woofers that work together to deliver a balanced and rich sound output.

Unlike many other soundbars in this price range, the Vizio SB362An-F6 doesn’t require an external subwoofer, as the built-in woofers provide enough bass to create an immersive audio experience.

The soundbar is designed to provide high-quality audio performance for movies, TV shows, and music. The two front-firing speakers are designed to handle the mid-range and high frequencies, while the dual woofers take care of the low frequencies.

The built-in woofers produce impressive low-frequency sounds, creating a full-bodied audio experience without an external subwoofer. The woofers are powerful and provide a satisfying bass response, especially noticeable when watching movies or listening to music with heavy bass tracks.

Connectivity Sources

You can expect different connectivity sources despite the entry-level and budget-friendly profile of the Vizio 2.1 channel soundbar.

It supports Bluetooth for streaming music from all smart devices without even a single cable coming in between. It is the most desired function by all audiophiles as it is a plug-and-play approach.

The soundbar also includes an Aux input, which enables you to connect wired devices such as MP3 players, laptops, or other non-Bluetooth audio sources.

There’s also a USB port that lets you play music from a USB drive and an optical input that allows you to connect your TV to the soundbar via an optical cable.

This range of connectivity options means you can enjoy your favorite movies, TV shows, and music from a variety of sources, providing you with maximum flexibility and convenience.

Control and Navigation

The soundbar doesn’t have many ways to offer navigation, just the manual buttons at the top panel of the device and a remote control that lets you manage it from across the room.

The remote has some buttons at the front with clear labels, saving you time in managing the volume, switching inputs, and monitoring other functions. You can also enable or turn off the bass response from the remote and turn the entire device off with just one button.

Sound Performance

Surprisingly, the Vizio 2.1 soundbars perform better than any entry-level sound systems we have tested. With full-range speakers and dual built-in subwoofers, reproducing mid, higher, and lower frequencies is incredibly shocking.

It produces well-balanced, loud, and spacious sound with reasonable clarity and rich bass. The Dolby Audio decoding maximizes sound clarity while fighting to manage sound delays.

Moreover, the DTS Virtual:X adds life to the music while making the soundstage bigger, wider, and better for a basic sound bar designed to upgrade TV speakers.

· Quick and easy setup
· Built-in woofers
· Dolby Audio decoding
· Wide frequency response
· Heavy soundstage
· Distortions at max vol
· Questionable clarity

Bottom Line

The detailed review of the Vizio SB362An-F6 2.1 system soundbar will help you determine whether it fits your requirements. However, we assume it is a valuable upgrade to many speakers, especially the TV for regular streaming.
