Best Soundbars and Audio for the Big Game 2023

You may have bought yourself a TV to watch this year’s Super Bowl or another of your favorite professional sports, but the picture is only half of the story. Compared to the cruddy speakers in a TV, a soundbar or full-fledged speaker system makes sporting events both more exciting and easier to track — and you don’t need to spend much at all.

Systems start around $100 with features like Bluetooth streaming audio and HDMI, while the more expensive systems add Dolby Atmos decoding and 4K video switching. No matter your budget, you can find something to heighten your football experience. Then, when the big game is over, our picks continue to sound good with everything you throw at them.
