Some people are so serious about home-theater audio that they’ll spend a fortune on speakers and invest hours setting them up just right. Then there are those of us who just want to make movies sound better without much expense or fuss. Panasonic’s sound bar sits in front of your HDTV and produces booming bass through a wireless subwoofer you can tuck away anywhere. It makes movies at home feel so much more like a night at the cineplex that you’ll swear your TV got bigger.
