For 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 denotes the total of main speakers, the second number defines the total of subwoofers, and the third number if available defines the total of “height” speakers.

Majority Bowfell TV Sound Bar supports AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Coz it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.

If you intend on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well
