Look no further for world-beating sound from the confirmed No.1 best soundbar for LG C1 (at least in America).

You can feel the sound move around you.
The LG C1 comes in sizes ranging from a massive 83” to a petite 48”. For that reason, when it comes to choosing the best soundbar for your LG C1, size matters. Often soundbars are the best way to go if you’re placing your LG C1 in a very small space like an apartment or bedroom, and the compact but powerful YAMAHA SR-C20A Compact SoundBar fits this specification like a glove – at only 23” long.
Built-in subwoofers definitely maximise on the space-saving front, but that doesn’t mean they sacrifice sound quality in this unit. With punchy radiant bass, dialogue-friendly Clear Voice tech, and immersive Virtual Surround, the SR-C20A creates a panoramic soundstage in any room, no matter how small.
- Petite but powerful
- Trademark YAMAHA quality
- Built-in subwoofer
- Not voice-assistant compatible
