I had a Polk sound bar and wireless bass module at one time, a SurroundBar 3000 if I recall correctly. I handed it down to my in-laws, and they're thoroughly pleased with it. It's not audiophile; but once a proper level balance between bass cube and sound bar is set, the sound is profoundly better than built-in TV speakers. One of the sound bar's best features is its ability to learn IR codes from my in-laws' existing Xfinity remote. Their sound bar has learned to power off and on along with the television, and it responds to the television's IR codes for volume up, down, and mute.

Occasionally, maybe once a month or so, the bass module would lose its sanity and start rumbling like a lawn mower. But power cycling the sound bar sorts it out. Unknown whether the reason for loss of sync is due to wireless signal pollution or just crappy Chinese electronics.
