Cheap & very good soundbar – TCL Alto 6+

The TCL Alto 6+ soundbar has a decent construction quality. It is mostly made of plastic and the front of the bar is wrapped in a tight fabric to protect the speakers. However, the fabric can tear or get dirty. The subwoofer is made of MDF, which makes it feel a bit more robust.
The TCL Alto 6+ has a decent stereo frequency response. He struggles to produce a stroke and rumbly bass-bass and some songs sound a bit flat. That said, it has a balanced mid-range, which helps the details and presence of leading voices and tools. However, his treble is a bit cashed in, making his mixtures look dark and opaque.TCL Alto 6+ soundbarThe High TCL 6+ soundbar is fine for mixed use. He has difficulty playing a satisfying bass for movies and music, and is not compatible with Atmos. Although it has extremely limited sound enhancement features, it has three EQ presets to help you adjust your sound a bit to your liking. That said, it can get strong enough without too many compression artifacts. You can also play voices clearly, which is ideal for podcasts or TV shows.
The TCL Alto 6+ is ideal for dialogue and TV shows. Although it has a phantom central channel, it can reproduce voices clearly and accurately. Its EQ “TV” preset also serves as a function of improving dialogue so that voice clarity can be further improved. You can also stream your favorite audiobooks or podcasts to the bar via Bluetooth.TCL Alto 6+ soundbarThe TCL High 6+ is disappointing for movies. Although it has a dark sound profile, it struggles to reproduce satisfactory success and roar. Also, it doesn’t support Atmos, its soundscape isn’t very wide and has poor surround performance, so it doesn’t look very engaging. That said, it can be strong enough for a large and crowded room.
The TCL Alto 6+ is good for music. It struggles to produce a clumsy bass, which is a bit disappointing for EDM and hip-hop fans. Although this bar doesn’t have many sound enhancement features, luckily there are three EQ presets available to help you customize the sound a bit. The bar can also be strong enough to fill a large or crowded room. You can also stream your favorite songs to the bar via Bluetooth.Photo:TCLTCL Alto 6+ soundbarTCL Alto 6+ soundbar is advertised to work perfectly with TCL Roku TVs, allowing you to use this TV’s remote control to control the soundbar and access controls. It has a decent sound profile, though a bit dark and comes with three eq presets so you can customize the sound. It can also be strong enough to fill a large or crowded room, and streaming your favorite audio to the bar is easy as it supports Bluetooth. While it doesn’t offer many additional features, it’s a good bar for those on a budget. TCL Alto 6+ soundbar price $109.99.
