Small room or large, this soundbar is incredible. I've owned bars in the $799 to $999 range which do not compare to this. And the wireless subwoofer is a MUST. Placement of the sub is extremely important and makes all the difference in accuracy and punch. For optimal placement, try this: place the subwoofer on your bed pillow..or wherever you will be primarily listening and literally crawl around the room, yes on your hands and knees) until it sounds the best. That is where you will place your wireless subwoofer. A subwoofer crawl is always better than the manual...every room is different and has different acoustics. Bass should blend in with the front channel well. The wireless rear speakers make 5.1 sound much more accurate than the bars that "simulate surround sound". For the price, this is a steal.
