BUILT-IN SPEAKER PERFORMANCE( TEST SUMMARY REPORT)

Built-in Speakers: Downward-firing 2.2 channel system with limited bass and soundstage. For casual TV watching and dialogue clarity, the C3's built-in speakers suffice
Voice Clarity: Clear dialogue in movies and TV shows.
Distortion: Minimal at moderate volumes, but increases noticeably at higher levels, impacting sound quality.
Frequency Response: Lacks bass & treble extension, compromising sound spectrum. Significant roll-off in bass & treble, lacking full audio spectrum
Bass: -12 dB, significantly lower than ideal for bass-heavy content. Unsuitable for music or bass-heavy content.
Soundstage: Narrow; Limited sense of surround sound or spatial audio.
Immersion: Limited; Can't compete with dedicated soundbars or surround systems.
Dolby Atmos Support: Decodes Dolby Atmos signals, but limited by built-in speakers.
Audio Passthrough: Supports eARC for lossless audio passthrough to external systems.
Recommendation: Soundbar/Speaker Upgrade; Consider a soundbar with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X virtual surround sound for a more immersive experience.
