2.1 Channel is two speakers and one subwoofer, or one soundbar and one subwoofer (soundbar has two built-in speakers). 5.1 soundbars are one soundbar, two or more additional speakers, and a subwoofer. 5.1 delivers the best audio, albeit at a price. 2.1 can deliver great audio too, and it’s cheaper, but it’s the best.
Where should I put the height of my speakers?
