The Avtex TV Soundbar & Bluetooth Speaker System will compliment your new Avtex TV and is compatible with all models. The standard speakers on the Avtex range of TVs are more than adequate but to enjoy a rich and immersive audio experience why not add the Avtex soundbar. Enjoy clear dialogue when watching comedies and dramas and punchy soundtracks when catching up in the latest action films. Warranty 1 year manufacturer warranty.
Please note the TV is not included and you are only purchasing the soundbar.
Avtex SB195BT soundbar combines with an Avtex TV/DVD to bring an enhanced, immersive viewing experience to your caravan or motorhome with crisp, clear sound. An all-in-one audio solution, the Avtex SB195BT TV soundbar doubles as a Bluetooth speaker system, offering the facility to wirelessly stream music.
This Avtex soundbar is backwards compatible with just about any Avtex TV, and comes with the necessary cables to connect via HDMI Arc (recommended for combining the soundbar with an Avtex Series 9 TV), coaxial audio (recommended for combining the soundbar with an Avtex Series 8 TV) and audio jack (for connecting to older sets).
Do I Need the Avtex Soundbar? A flagship sound boosting device specifically designed for the leisure industry, the Avtex soundbar helps you make the most of your mobile television system. Just as you'd expect from a trusted brand that's been around for a quarter of a century, Avtex brings you its caravan soundbar to not only enhance your audio experience, but your caravanning experience as well.
With HD audio so good it gives you goose bumps, the Avtex soundbar puts built-in TV speakers to shame. What's more, the fact that it runs on 12V and 24V battery systems, as well as 240V mains electric, make it the ideal caravan soundbar.
So, what's not to like? Naysayers will try to downplay the benefits of having a caravan soundbar. They'll point to costs, reduced payload, limited space, time-consuming setup, etc. But with the Avtex soundbar, this is a moot point, because the perks vastly outweigh any conceivable drawbacks. Here's why:
Weight and Size Weighing in at 1.2kg, the Avtex soundbar is ideal for caravan and motorhome owners trying to optimize their payload and minimize their overall weight. You'll be hard pressed to find Bluetooth caravan speakers this light with even remotely comparable acoustics. In terms of space, this compact 12v soundbar only takes up 43.5 x 6.8 x 4.6 cm, and it fits perfectly under your TV. In fact, you can mount it onto a wall (under the TV) using the bracket your soundbar came with. Also, the soundbar's sleek design complements any flat screen TV, unlike some commercially available speakers, which can be quite an eye-sore.
Performance Any modern TV with built-in speakers is a nice piece of kit. But a dedicated soundbar takes entertainment to a whole new level. You simply can't pack all that oomph into a flat screen TV, no matter how 'smart' it may be. With its four-speaker driver system, this caravan soundbar gives you the acoustics and clarity of a cinema room while also enabling you to enjoy the convenience of a caravan.
Connectivity Your Avtex soundbar connects to mobile devices like tablets and phones via Bluetooth, within a range of up to 10 metres. This enables you to enjoy fantastic acoustics as you screen cast to your TV or watch your videos directly onto your phone.
It comes with USB input for instant and direct play. Access your music and film collection from a hard-drive, memory stick, or other USB storage device with your 12V soundbar.
It also connects to your TV via up to three ports, depending on the model. Avtex TV models went from series 1 to 9, and counting. The 12v soundbar works with all these models, as well as most other brands. To help you enjoy the optimum level of performance with any type of TV, the Avtex soundbar comes with three cables for three different ports.
For Avtex 1 to 5 series TVs, for instance your connectivity is limited. To set up your soundbar, you connect your headphone jack to the AUX in. For series 6 through 8, you also have a Coaxial Audio connector. Whatever the brand of your TV, if you have a Coaxial plug, then his should be your default connection.
Should you happen to own an Avtex 9 Series TV, you have the added advantage of using its HDMI ARC port. It guarantees the optimum level of performance and it also enables you to control your soundbar (features and settings included) via the TV.
To check your Avtex TV's series, look for a number with this format: L18xDR(S). The 'x' indicates the series. Models belonging to series 1 to 4 come will have a different format, unique to each series. You should be able to find it on the back of your TV, on your invoice, on the box, or on the manuals it came with.
Set Up Setting up your 12v soundbar by Avtex is as easy as unboxing it, screwing the plate of the bracket onto it, and connecting it to the TV with one of the cables mentioned above. It takes less time to set it up than it does to brew a good cuppa.
In terms of power, it comes with batteries, power adapter, 12V/24V vehicle connector, and 240V mains connector. You can enjoy this energy efficient device with or without a hook-up, and it even goes into standby mode automatically when not in use.
Price Cost-wise, an Avterx soundbar is comparable to a decent Bluetooth speaker. It's not surprising, considering you can play your CDs and DVDs or listen to Freeview radio on your TV, using your caravan soundbar just as you would a Bluetooth speaker. But not even the best hi-fi speakers have the TV connections or the acoustics of an Avtex soundbar.

Avtex Soundbar - Worth It? Yes!
by Mr Jeffries (10 Jan 2020)
Flat screen televisions have never had really good audio, and generically, the thinner they are, the worse they sound, with many exhibiting a tinny, high pitch audio with no substance. Many would argue that this is acceptable in a caravan or motorhome as you shouldn’t be watching TV and should be getting out and about – a polarising argument. We spend a lot of time away in our caravan – probably twenty weekends a year plus holidays, and let’s face it, the weather isn’t always good enough to be outside. Where this is the case we love ‘Movie Nights’ in. Our new caravan has a built in Avtex 32” TV. Adding the Avtex soundbar has made a world of difference. The tinny audio has been replaced by deeper, richer sound. I have connected the soundbar to an HDMI ARC channel on the TV, and it (mostly) recognises the soundbar immediately, with the TV remote changing the volume on the soundbar over HDMI. Be aware that the soundbar can get ‘confused’ if you have additional devices, e.g. blu-ray player or Amazon TV Cube, that try to connect to the soundbar before the TV has ‘woken up’. I have found the best way to prevent this is to turn off CEC on the additional devices – CEC only saves one or two button presses on the remote for the associated device, so no great shakes there. The Avtex sound bar also acts as a Bluetooth speaker and you can easily connect your phone or other enabled device to it if you have a streaming service or stored audio files. One thing to note is that this sound bar
Good For Its Size.
by John Screwdriver (07 Dec 2019)
The features on this soundbar make it worth while, You have a choice of 12v or mains power, so it can still be used off the grid. it also has several ways of connecting the audio to it, I'm using the headphone jack as the HDMI didn't work for me, but its also Bluetooth, optical & RGB ready so you have plenty of choices.
It gives of a nice loud sound but struggles a little with the treble, Its a bit bassy, When playing music via Bluetooth or from the TV it sounds great i cannot complain, it just when watching a movie you get all the crashes & thumps but when they talk its a little muffled (although still audible) i'd still buy another if it came to it as for its price its worth it, & finally it comes with a bracket that allows it to be slung just below the tv if its wall mounted, mines on a swivel arm so everything stays together & the sound points whatever way the TVs facing.
Avtex Sound Bar

Super addition to tv
Very Good Sound
by Amazon Customer (17 Sep 2019)
Came on time. Well packaged. Easy to connect with Avtex TV. Really improves the sound of the TV. Works extremely well independent of TV, like connecting with iPhone.
Excellent Value For Money.
by Sandra Tod (12 Sep 2019)
The sound bar is to be used with our avtex pro tv in our caravan. It was easy to assemble and attach to the tv. The sound is good . Very good value for money.
by Beverly P. (28 Aug 2019)
We bought it for our camper. It certainly improves the sound of our television. Had a little bit of a problem to start with, every time we put it on we had unplug the lead and then put back. In fact it wouldn’t come on at all at one point. We put the television back to factory settings and now all is ok.
Designed For An Avtex Tv On A Wall Bracket
by A. Field (17 Aug 2019)
Sounds pretty good but would just like to clarify something I missed. When using with an Avtex TV the soundbar attaches to the tv when you remove the stand but... you cannot then use the soundbar as a stand. This is designed to be mounted on a tv that is already on a wall bracket. Wasn’t a big deal for me as I was able to site the soundbar behind the tv on a shelf but you cannot then see the led display showing you what input mode you are in. It does come with a multitude of cables allowing for various connections.
Couples With The Tv Brilliantly A Really Great Purchase
by Rick Bennett (08 Aug 2019)
Excellent Addition To Tv
by Helen (06 Aug 2019)
Great sound whether connected to avtex tv or by Bluetooth to streamed and saved music.
Excellent purchase, would recommend
Mostly Good But With One Problem.
by Mr. Colin Young (23 Jun 2019)
Much improved sound quality.Fitted easily to my Avtex TV but unfortunately obstructs the power button on the TV so you can’t access it .Can live with it but would have been nice to know beforehand.
Good But Needs Better Design
by Optimist (17 Jun 2019)
This is a welcome addition - this is my third Avtex TV and they have all been let down by sound quality - if only the designers had thought about the way the rear plugs stick out and prevent flush mounting to a motorhome wall. Every time I put the TV into "park mode" I have to take the plugs out as they wont allow the TV to be secured in the bracket. Maybe a better design would be to have the connections underneath????
Great Sound And Size
by Chez _len (13 Jun 2019)
Bought to go with the tv in motorhome. Sounds good
The Best Customer Service I Have Ever Received. An Awesome Product
by Motorhome Phil (09 May 2019)
Put this in my motorhome - its incredible for something so small. Fit easily to my existing Avtex TV - just fitted where the old floor stand used to be (its on on the wall).
I had some questions when setting it up - customer service was out of this world good. Answered in a few rings, listened and then gave me the solution in seconds. Ace when you are as impatient as me. Thanks guys.
by Ennyl (06 May 2019)
For use in caravan, with TV but mainly for music. Excellent .
by Mr Sd Clark (18 Apr 2019)
Does what is says on the Box it’s a perfect addition to our Avtex 32inch tv

Valve For Money
by Linda L. (01 Dec 2018)
Good sound would have given 5 stars if I hadn’t had to send it back because it stopped working it was sent back in the same packaging it looked like it hadn’t been looked at until I call the company who assured me it was all find. Length of the leads are not long enough.
Quite Reasonable Sound Bar
by Happy One (28 Aug 2018)
Very nifty sound bar for the Avtex TV in my motorhome. Full choice of audio inputs and supplied cables and a nice remote control. Quite good sound although it's lacking in bass - but its good enough. I was disappointed that it required two small bolts to attach it to the bottom of the TV and they didn't supply them. The instructions book said to use the two small bolts from the old TV stand but my old stand didn't have them as it was attached to the back of the TV via the DIN bracket using four larger bolts.
A Great Addition For Any Avtex Tv
by Graham Tyler (28 Jun 2018)
Much improved sound from my Avtex TV, expensive to buy but worth the money. Easy to fit to the wall mounted Avtex TV in my touring caravan and no noticeable increased drain on my leisure battery when camping for over 2 weeks without a mains hook-up and dependent on my roof mounted 150w solar panel.
Another Good Product
by Mjb (25 May 2018)
Typically Avtex. Not cheap, very well made, does the job and looks good. The choice of inputs is useful and will self select when powered up.
by Grovesy (15 Apr 2018)
Had pc speakers before to increase volume which helped a fair bit, because of the price this was a very reluctant purchase but really pleased with sound quality, a must if you watch films and box sets like us , superb bit of kit Love the way it fits onto the base stand when wall mounted Well thought out
by Trevor Sargood (07 Mar 2018)
Sounds great easy to use with smart phone would recommend
