TV sound bar: Get good audio quality for your TV?

Sound bars can be divided into two broad categories which are Self Powered and Passive sound bars.
Self Powered Sound Bar

Sub woofers can be wireless which might be integrated into the sound bar or can be added to your TV with a plug in feature. The sub woofers help you to enjoy enhanced audio effects from your other equipments like iPad or Blue-ray disc player.
