Budget sound bar Black Friday deals
A sound bar doesn’t need to be a major investment, and with deals on budget models from popular brands, now is a great time to save money on an audio upgrade for your living room.
Already one of the cheapest sound bars you can buy, this 17-inch model not only fits most TV stands but also pumps out plenty of sound for small spaces. Setup is straightforward thanks to simple Bluetooth pairing, making this an affordable quick fix to low-quality TV speakers.
Designed to fit under TV displays, this 2-inch-tall speaker is one of the lowest priced Polk Audio sound bars this Black Friday. Though it’s a few years old, dialogue, sound effects and music come through bold and clear.
One of the cheapest sound bar/subwoofer combos, this deal gets you an audio boost for an even better price. The Bluetooth connectivity means little setup, but the bass isn’t quite on par with similar models.
Other Black Friday budget sound bar deals worth checking out

Mid-range sound bar Black Friday deals
If you’re willing to spend a bit more, you’ll find deals that are more likely to include subwoofers or have higher wattage for bigger spaces. Expect to find more options from popular brands like Samsung in this price range.
This affordable subwoofer/sound bar combo puts an emphasis on dialogue to make captioned streaming less of a necessity. While the speaker grille is prone to dents, the sound is excellent for the size, and you can turn on both speakers with most TV remotes.
The simple white design offers a more modern style than ubiquitous black speakers, and built-in Alexa makes this a smart speaker as well. Dolby Atmos excels in small rooms, and both movies and music get a much-needed boost thanks to just the right amount of bass.
One of the cheapest Bose sound bars is on sale this Black Friday, and the HDMI or optical cables offer a more reliable connection. The small form factor works well under your TV or mounted to a wall, though mounting hardware is not included.
Other Black Friday mid-range sound bar deals worth checking out
