In the home entertainment space, LG is most popular for its TVs as the company has been making big advancements in 4K technologies. While LG’s audio products don’t share the same limelight as their TVs, it is still worth knowing that LG manufactures a bunch of home theater and Hi-Fi systems. Most recently, LG unveiled a plethora of sound bars for 2015 to suit different budgets. The LG LAS450H falls on the near bottom in terms of price and while the features aren’t very innovative, the price may surprise you.

About the LG LAS450H
The LAS450H is one of the many LG sound bar packages that come with a wireless subwoofer. It only costs $200, which is surprisingly not the cheapest LG sound bar but it remains the best option if you need that wireless subwoofer without spending more. For a budget product, the LG looks stylistically appealing with a nice speaker grille pattern and a simple display on the middle. It measures about 35 inches wide, making it best for 40-inch TVs. The subwoofer isn’t very large compared to the subwoofers found in more expensive LG sound bar packages.
It is also welcoming to see both an HDMI input and output with an Audio Return Channel. This means that if your TV has an ARC HDMI port too, you can make a direct connection from the LG LAS450H to the TV without requiring a separate digital optical cable. For older TVs, you can still use the included digital optical cable.
The LAS450H can also be considered a Bluetooth speaker and it takes great advantage of the built-in Bluetooth capability. This allows any Bluetooth device to stream music directly to the sound bar after a simple pairing process. The feature can be put to better use if you have a compatible Android device as there is a free Android app called Music Flow Bluetooth which offers a friendlier interface for playing stored music to the sound bar. Through this app, two additional Android devices can connect to the LG LAS450H and any of the three devices can stream music on command. When the LAS450H enters standby mode, you can also use the app to wake up the sound bar. If you prefer the old-fashioned way, you can take a flash drive filled with music and plug it into the sound bar’s USB port.
Outside of Music Flow, recent LG TVs can also connect to the LAS450H wirelessly through a Bluetooth-enabled technology called Sound Sync Wireless. Basically, you won’t need an HDMI cable or a digital optical cable to establish a connection to one of those cool webOS LG TVs.
With a 120-watt sound bar and a 100-watt subwoofer, the LG LAS450H is a bit underpowered compared to LG’s other sound bar offerings but it is much louder and clearer than the average TV with built-in speakers. The subwoofer adds a bit of extra bass to make movie experiences feel more complete but it isn’t going to turn your living room into a dance floor. Still, the LAS450H sounds better than the smaller Bluetooth speakers out there. Playing music over USB sounds a little bit better though.
• Great Bluetooth features for the price.
• Decent audio quality improvements.
• HDMI input and output with ARC support.
• Not the best solution for loud upbeat music.
The low price remains as the main selling point for the LG LAS450H. The sound quality won’t blow you away but you are definitely going to leave the sound bar connected to your TV and never think about using you’re the internal speakers ever again. The added Bluetooth features should give Android fans and LG TV owners more reasons to be happy.
