Here is both a composite front and rear video of the sound bar unit of the SBX4250 system. The top photo is a front view, while the bottom photo shows what the sound bar looks like from the rear.

The sound bar dimensions are: 37.5 inches (W), 3.6-inches (H), and 2.3-inches (D).

Being the speaker grill, the sound bar houses a total of six speakers, that includes two midrange and one tweeter grouping for each of the left and right channels.

Also, there is an LED status display in the center of the sound bar, and above that there is a set onboard power, input select, and volume buttons.

Moving to the bottom photo, you can see the rear of the sound bar unit, which includes insets on the center left and center right side that house the connections. The digital and analog audio-only connections are housed in the left inset, and the HDMI audio (and video pass-through) connections, are housed in the right inset.

Also included on rear panel are two wall built-in keyhole wall mounting brackets, and in bottom center there is a receptacle for plugging in the detachable AC Adapter module.

Here is a look at the onboard controls on the top of the sound bar unit of the Toshiba SBX4250 System.

One the left side is main volume control. Moving right is an additional volume control for bass level, surround mode (Stereo, SRS TruSurround HD, SRS TruBass) and input selectors (HDMI 1/2, Optical 1/2, AUX, Bluetooth), and the power/standby button.

One thing to point out is that all these buttons are also duplicated on the provided wireless remote control. Another thing to point out is that in a darkened room, these buttons are very difficult to see.

Toshiba SBX4250 Sound System Digital/Analog Audio Connections

Shown on this page are the audio-only input connections provided with the SBX4250 system, which located slightly left of center of the sound bar unit's rear panel.

On the left side of the photo, you can see the input labels imprinted within the plastic cabinet (definitely not very easy to see in its actual size or in the dark).

On the right side are the actual inputs. From top to bottom are two Digital Optical, and two analog audio (RCA style and 3.5mm) inputs.

These inputs can used to connect audio from sources, such DVD players, cable boxes, etc... that have these types of connections. Also, the 3.5mm analog audio input can be use to connect digital audio players, or even home CD players and cassette decks via an stereo RCA to 3.5mm adapter cable. You need an optional 3.5mm-to-3.5mm or an RCA-to-3.5mm adapter cables for connection to the 3.5mm input.

Here a close-up look at the other group of connections located just right of center on the rear panel of the SBX4250 sound bar unit.

Shown on the left side of the photo are two HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. This is where you connect your HDMI-enabled source devices.

Although the SBX4250 does not process video, it pass all video signals through the sound bar and to the output, making connection between your source device, the sound bar unit, and your TV very easy. The two HDMI inputs are also 3D pass-through and CEC control compatible, and the HDMI output also supports the Audio Return Channel (ARC) function, which eliminates the need to connect separate audio output from the TV to the SBX4250.

Located are right side of the photo (ignore the reflections), are the HDMI input labels that are imprinted into the plastic cabinet. Just as with the connection labels seen in the previous photo, these are hard to see.

Shown on this page is a view of the front, side, and back of the wireless subwoofer that is provided with the Toshiba SBX4250 Sound Bar Speaker System.

The subwoofer has a black gloss finish on the front on and rear and has grill cloth on the side that the driver is located. The subwoofer is a Bass Reflex design with side mounted 6.5-inch cone driver, supported by front mounted port to enhance low frequency response.

Also, as you can see in the photo of the back portion of the subwoofer, there is an On/Off power switch and attached power cord, but there are no audio input connections or adjustment controls. The subwoofer receives both its audio input and control setting signals wirelessly via Bluetooth transmission technology from the SBX4250's sound bar unit.

It is also important to note that this subwoofer will only work with the SBX4250 sound bar unit, or other sound bar units designated by Toshiba.

Here is a photo of the wireless remote control provided with the Toshiba SBX4250 Sound Bar Speaker System.

On the top of the remote are the Mute and Power buttons, and in the next row are the CEC and Input select buttons.

Volume increase buttons, and below that are the input select and Volume decrease buttons.

Moving closer to the center of the remote are the Volume controls and playback control buttons for Bluetooth sources.

Below that are two buttons EQ and SRS. The EQ button provides access to several sound settings (Flat, Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classic, Movie), while the SRS button provides access to the TruSurround and TruBass settings referred to previously in this profile.

The last group of buttons on the remote are the Bass, Subwoofer, and Treble controls. These controls aid in tailoring the frequency response of the system to your room and own personal taste.

Now, you are probably wondering what the large black square is on the bottom of the remote. It serves no purpose - it just fills the empty space that is remaining.

Final Take

As you can see from this photo profile, the Toshiba SBX4250 consists of a sound bar and wireless subwoofer.

This system is very easy to set up and is designed provide better sound for your TV viewing experience. In addition, it also serves as connection hub for types of component, without the need for a more complicated home theater setup. The sound bar can be placed on a shelf or mounted on a wall (which is preferred) above or below a TV and complements TVs with 32 to 47-inch screen sizes very well.
