I thought IHTB138B had Bluetooth, why does it need wires? 

This product has one Bluetooth receiver that allows it to receive information from a device with a Bluetooth transmitter. Mobile devices and some TVs have Bluetooth transmitters that can send audio information to the product’s receiver.  

Audio information travels to the satellite speakers in this system through wired connections. The satellite speakers also receive their power through these wired connections. Wired connections also provide the highest quality audio output by reducing distortion, static, and interference. 


How do I hook up the speakers?

The Speakers are connected by wire and need to be matched with correct Speaker output on the rear of the subwoofer.

FL/FR - FrontLeft / Front Right

SL/SR - Surround Left/ Surround Right

CEN - Center

SUB - Subwoofer



How can I turn the Voice Prompt On/Off? (IHTB138B V2681)

Press and Hold the 5.1CH button for 5 seconds to turn voice prompts ON/OFF.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup This includes a 26 inch central speaker, subwoofer, 4 satellite speakers , an rca to 3.5 mm audio cable and 3 rca to rca cables, remote with included batteries. Setup took about 30 minutes start to finish, the directions were very clear and easy to understand with picture diagrams. The sound is rich and clear and makes for a much better listening experience for movies and music. I was unable to use the 5:1 input as my tv is older. The remote is compact- a bit larger than credit card, the subwoofer is compact and central speaker is sleek and compact making placement easy as it will fit and can be hidden easily behind other decor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If I could give negative stars, I would This system was given to me as a gift. Unfortunately it has a junky set up for connecting to a tv, so I had to wait until we got a different tv to use it. Now, hooked to the new tv, the speakers for the center and front left and front right don't work at the same time and cut in and out. I've tried troubleshooting, we've even tried just having the center or just the surround plugged in and no help. It's like they have a short in them. The fun part? I tried contacting customer service and the page to send an email/message will not let me send the message because it won't read my reCAPTCHA response, regardless of the device I use to fill out the form. Seems like the company is pretty shady. Just avoid. Gonna try calling, again, but tbh, this thing is way too much trouble for what it's worth, and it doesn't even work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great sound!! The speakers are a decent quality and the Bluetooth works perfectly. had every thing it needed to be set up. no missing parts. The speaker wires a tad shorter than I want but that is an easy fix so no biggie there. There's a bunch of you-tube and wiki-how information to show you how to splice longer wires to the speakers. . And the price was excellent. he sound is good a bit smaller in size than I thought but It actually works better for me being smaller. fits perfectly in my TV system arrangement. given the brand I didn't expect much but, I was surprised at how loud they go the sub-woofer thumps pretty darn good. all in all good price great quality thus far id recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect, as described bud a little under powered Got 2 for my 2 boys birthdays, one for each, but one hasn't gotten theirs yet. Was disappointed when opening the box as there was a good sized box, taped and all, empty to fill space. So the used a larger box to make you think the system was bigger than it really is. After spending maybe 10 minutes installing, hiding wires and connecting the Bluetooth the boys was very excited to have surround sound and a Bluetooth stereo in his room. Like I said I got 2 and will be leaving another post in about a month for another review and update. Quickly very happy. Not as big as I thought but sounds good for a bedroom or small living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great First, right out of the box, setup was super easy. Everything is labeled, there is a very clear diagram, and none of it is complicated anyway. It connected to my tv via Bluetooth right away very easily (there are two other connection options, all cords are included). It gets very loud if you want it to; I never even turned it up to max volume because that may have blown my eardrums. The sound is great! We listened to a whole galaxy of sounds ;) and it was seriously amazing. The sub sounds great as well. It’s not too heavy to move around however you want it, but the sub and sound bar are still pretty decently sized. I have no complaints and it makes a great addition to my bedroom tv.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality. I felt pretty confident after reading a bunch of the reviews however.. when I got it home it was a different story. 1st and foremost the quality is poor. So poor that the wires that plug into the back of the sub kept snapping right off every time I had to move the sub. 2nd the instructions are for men who have no intention of looking at the instructions. Luckily I had half a clue and was able to get everything hooked up. Never was able to get the aux or the 5.1 surround to work at all. You could hear that the speakers were on but no sound. I was able to get the sub to pair with my phone and voila, I had sound. Really quiet sound with no display and no matter how much u turn the volume up it never actually gets any louder. So after all that headache I got to spend an additional hour putting it all back in the box so it can be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect gift I have been wanting a system like this for quite some time. The set up was a little confusing at first, but I got it together. The manual shows you different ways to set up, depending on what you will be using… Bluetooth, Or Aux, or surround sound. I tried them all. My favorite is surround sound. I watched a movie and the sound quality was great. I was so excited. Now we can have the movies right here at home. Being able to use the Bluetooth option is great too. I can play my music from my phone onto the system. I also love that it has a remote and you can switch from the different features. You can also control the sound on each area. It’s really loud. I will be using this for a long time.
