The announcement of the JBL Bar 5.0 comes a year after the company announced its first Dolby Atmos speakers, namely JBL Bar 9.1.2 update. Previous Atmos speakers used raised firing engines to bounce sound off the ceiling to give the impression that it was coming from above.

This is unlikely to sound convincing, but the result is affordable speakers.
The JBL Bar 5.0 uses five motors (three front-facing and two-sided) and four passive radiators to create its sound. It supports Bluetooth, Alexa (including multi-room audio), Apple AirPlay 2 and has built-in Chromecast support.
