Let’s take a glance at the budget-oriented Marq Soundbar 120W with Subwoofer. There are many soundbars available in this segment of the budget. But we don’t get a good performance from the ones we anticipated.
A lot of our readers have asked about this model, and so we’re doing some analysis for the sake of Infobits’ users. Please remember that this is not a paid review in any manner and we are not associated with this brand as well.
We bought this item from Flipkart at a normal price of ₹6,499. But now the price is slashed. Based on the payment option you have chosen, there are other promotions also available from time to time. The 80W output version is also available for ₹ 4,999 on Flipkart itself.
MarQ Soundbar 120 W
Design & Build Quality
MarQ 120W Soundbar comes with a subwoofer to provide heavy bass along with loud volume to give you a movie-like experience. Bring your TV to life with this easy-to-use, wireless, beautifully built, elegant soundbar.
The MarQ soundbar will be an excellent addition to your TV and give you an atmosphere that fits your preferences.
It comes with a fully functioning remote control and a dedicated subwoofer. It also has an HDMI ARC feature.
HDMI ARC stands for “High definition Multimedia Audio Return Channel Interface.” ARC enables signals to be “upstream” and “downstream” over a single HDMI link between your TV and any ARC-equipped A / V system.
This helps you to use a single remote for all of the most important features of your connected devices.
As far as its size is concerned, it looks fine under a 55-inch LED TV. The front side is a good-looking metal grill with MarQ logos and has a small LED display on the front side that displays the chosen audio source. This LED display gives you a clear representation of the volume level too.
You can see the USB connector, the Volume Control button, and the Power Switch on the right side of the bar. All other ports are provided on the back of the MarQ soundbar, which includes Optical In, Auxiliary In, and HDMI ARC In. It also supports Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity.
Thanks to its 2.1 version of Bluetooth Technology, this soundbar makes room for an easy-to-use and wireless experience.
There is a dedicated port to connect the Subwoofer supplied along with it. The power cable was also brought out of the backside. What’s more, it’s also compatible with Android and iOS devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and computers.
The subwoofer speaker is mounted sideways in its cabinet and is a 6-inch-sized speaker. There are no control buttons on the subwoofer since all the controls are available on the remote unit itself.
This bass-boosting soundbar, with its external subwoofer, provides up to 3 times as much bass as possible.
As standard, the remote controller is made of quality plastic material. Specific source selection is possible via this remote control and there are dedicated bass and treble control buttons.
There are some preset sound modes for this soundbar that can be accessed from this remote controller.
Performance of MarQ Soundbar
Guys, really trust us, it gives high-quality audio, and its performance is above our expectations. Its Bluetooth performance is also very strong relative to some other brands.
We can conclude that it is a soundbar of high quality, both in terms of performance and quality design, relative to the others in this price range.
It reproduces very well the low-frequency audio spectrum. Since it is a long bar, you will feel a true stereo effect as the drivers are fixed at both ends of the soundbar.
In a true analysis, we ought to find out the weak points of the product. These points do not have any importance in this budget range.
The first negative point we observed in this soundbar is it doesn’t have a surround sound experience but we can not expect the feature in this price range.
Also, it would have been better if it had a dialogue enhancer feature, as seen on some soundbars.

MarQ Soundbar 80 W
As we mentioned in the introduction, if you are on a tight budget, the MarQ 80 W soundbar is a good option. This model includes a sound bar with two speakers and a subwoofer.
Its sound output of 80 W is adequate for home use. We found that the MarQ 80 W 2.1 soundbar is one of the best options for streaming music from your mobile device.
At the same time, you can enhance the sound on your LED TV to a higher level at a low cost. It has Bluetooth version 5 support as well as a USB port for connecting USB drives.
This model also includes a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.
MarQ 80W, like the 120W model, delivers crystal clear sound and deep bass. However, this 80W model lacks HDMI ARC and optical connectivity.
Undoubtedly, we can say that it is one of the best soundbars to offer at an affordable price and delivers quality at its peak. If you want a good soundbar with a subwoofer and want to listen to music on it, it is for you. We will offer a ranking of 4.8/5 in our review.
