        Wireless subwoofer


        Place the subwoofer wherever suits you, as it wirelessly connects to the sound bar, saving you from having to hide wires around your home.

        It has been designed for dynamic and robust bass sound that places you in the action, for a cinema-like experience.

        The SCHTB498 isn't just an elegant addition to your home entertainment set up, it can also be used to stream your favourite music.

        Simply connect your smartphone or tablet to the sound bar via Bluetooth technology and enjoy songs with outstanding performance.

        Stock updates

        Find something you want but it’s not in stock? On the item’s product page, simply click on ‘Email me when back in stock’, and let us have your email address. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available again.

        Returns and refunds

        Whether an item you’ve bought is faulty or damaged, or you’ve changed your mind, it’s easy to get a refund.

        Items you haven’t opened
        Within 21 days of receiving an item you paid for online, on the phone, or in store you can return it for a full refund – provided your purchase is still in its original and unopened packaging. This promise is in addition to your statutory rights.

        Items you’ve opened
        Within 14 days of receiving an item you paid for online or on the phone, you can return it, even if you’ve opened it. To receive a refund, you must:

        • Let us know you plan to return the item within 14 days of delivery/collection
        • Physically return it within a further 14 days.
        The item must be returned in ‘as new condition’ – not used or installed, and in its original packaging. More on returns and refunds.

        Order online and collect in store

        Sometimes you’ll want something even quicker than we can deliver. Or you can’t be in when our van or courier would arrive. That’s why we offer you the option to order online and collect in store.
        Subject to what you’re ordering and where you want to collect from, you can:

        Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

        Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.

        Your fastest way to order online for collection is to use our ‘Availability Checker’ feature:

        1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
        2. Click on the magnifying glass
        3. Review the collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket
