Will a Sound Bar help me?

Not sure if this is the right place for this.

 

I have an android box that is set up for Kodi and It's directly attached to the TV by HDMI cable, but the sound is awful. By awful I mean that all the sound effects (like passing traffic, clock ticking etc etc) is so loud that it makes it a struggle to hear the dialogue.

 

The sound on the regular cable box is fine.

 

On a separate TV I have the same Kodi box set up through my Surround Sound and the sound is fine.

I'm wondering if buying a sound bar would help?

 

Any help appreciated.

Hard to say...

  • Kodi video and audio content is inconsistent.  It really depends on how good the recording was made..
  • the larger soundbar speakers will improve sounds and provide lower frequencies.  Hard to say if it can make an impact due to material content.  If the sound on the kodi source is poor... a soundbar can improve.... or it can make it worse.
