Shown as the number of speakers x size(inches), Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar has 2 x 3.5, 6 x 4 and 5 x 1 measured in inches. The sound quality of any given speaker generally depends upon its size which is in turn determined by the driver unit.
When it comes to surround sound channels, you’re going to run across numbers in such formats as X.X two-digit, or X.X.X three-digit the first number represents the sum of main speakers, the second number defines the total of subwoofers, and the third number if available shows the number of “height” speakers.
NOTE: "Height" speakers are most times placed on the ceiling of the room that has the soundbar, but they may as well be upward-firing speakers inside the soundbar itself.
Samsung HW Q600B having a sound output value of 3.1.2 indicates that it has 3 main speakers, 1 subwoofer and 2 "height" speaker
