How to find your Vizio Sound Bar model number?

When it comes to locating your Vizio sound bar’s model number, you can rely on one of three Vizio-approved methods. The first method involves looking for your Vizio sound bar’s model number on the side of the product’s original packaging. 

If you’ve thrown away the packaging or misplaced it, you can utilize Vizio’s quick start guide. And, finally, if that’s not an option either, you can look for your sound bar’s model number on the back of the device.

Vizio Sound Bar Instructions

The good thing about most if not all Vizio sound bar user manuals is that they’re pretty user-friendly. The user manuals all start off with safety instructions, followed by a detailed table of contents (ToC). However, you should note that based on the product’s features, instructions and manual layout can vary. That’s why it’s essential you get a hold of the correct model number. 

Here’s how most of Vizio sound bars instruction guides are laid out:

Package Contents: This section details all the accessories your sound bar package contains, like the sound bar itself, remote control, power cable, etc. 

Controls & Connections: includes diagrams of your sound bar’s front and back with instructions about how to go about connecting your device (as in which wire goes where).

First-time Setup: This is the section you’ll want to refer to if you’re a first time user. The instructions talk through the installation of the sound bar step-by-step along with diagrams. Additionally, it also tells you how to configure your remote control. 

Programming the Sound Bar: If you want to learn more about programming your sound bar (how to get your sound bar to accept TV remote IR commands), this is the section you can refer to. 
Help & Troubleshooting: As the name suggests, this segment of the guide includes all the error messages you can encounter and how you can deal with them.

Vizio Sound Bar Troubleshooting

The troubleshooting section of the Vizio user manual is pretty comprehensive, and it includes detailed answers to the following problems:

  • There is no power 
  • There is no sound
  • I hear buzzing or humming
  • The remote isn’t working

Some Vizio sound bar manuals also list out a FAQ section – where you can find answers to questions like:

  • How do I know if I’m playing Dolby Atmos content?
  • Can I adjust each of the sound bar speaker channels individually?
  • What sources play Dolby Atmos content?
  • The sound bar is in a room with a vaulted ceiling. Will I hear all the sounds properly?
  • The system information says the audio type is Dolby Atmos-Dolby Digital Plus or Dolby Atmos-TrueHD. How do I get one or the other?

Types of Vizio Sound Bar

Vizio has quite a stunning range of sound bars that offer different types of capabilities. However, some of their most popular sound bars are from the series listed below:

The Elevate Series: The Elevate series includes only one model and is also the most reasonably-priced of Vizio’s sound bars. It features up to 18 high-performance speakers with separate tweeters and subwoofers. These speakers are capable of providing approximately 107dB of distortion-free sound. This series also includes the Dolby Atmos and DTS: X technology for a cinematic sound experience. 

The M Series: Vizio’s M Series includes three different models. However, with the sound bars in this series, you can look forward to 11 speakers equipped with Dolby Atmos and DTS: X for an immersive experience and 103 dB of sound. There’s also a 6-inch subwoofer for powerful bass support. 

The V Series: The V series sound bars by Vizio feature the DTS Virtual: X technology for ceiling-to-floor virtualized 3D surround sound for an outstanding experience. With up to 6 speakers for brilliant clarity and a powerful 5-inch sub for bass. The speakers can deliver up to 98dB of sound and feature a 50-20Hz frequency range. These sound bars also offer Bluetooth capability and can be connected to voice assistant devices like Siri, Alexa, etc. 

About Vizio

William Wang introduced V Inc. to the world in 2002 from Costa Mesa, California. The company is privately held and designs and sells top-notch televisions and sound bars. The company name was officially changed to Vizio Inc. in 2004. 

Televisions are Vizio’s main product category – which can also be witnessed from the fact that in 2007 Vizio became the largest LCD TV seller in North America. Suffice it to say, the company has gone from strength to strength in the TV category to the extent that Vizio launched its first OLED TV in 2020. 

On the other hand, Vizio started up on its sound bars in 2013 when it released the Home Theatre Sound Bar. However, that didn’t stop Vizio from quickly improving on their sound bar line, and the company launched the Elevate sound bars with Atmos Dolby in 2020.
