Where Can You Mount Soundbars?

First, let's start with some information about the places to set up these bars. The function of this device is to make the sound from your TV louder and better.  So, their position will be near the location of the screen

People often install them in two places: on the wall or on the television. The details of these two installing methods are as follow.

On the wall

Walls are the ideal place to install a television and its audio device. Wall mounting will save you much space, and you can hang the bar speaker wherever you want. 

You will often find soundbars mounted on the walls under the televisions. But you can attach it above the TV if you want. The different positions of this audio equipment will affect the sounds it makes. 

Above the TV

If you have your bar speaker mounted above the TV, you should adjust them to your ears' level. This position is suitable for rooms with high chairs and a low TV set. 

Below the TV

If you prefer placing your TV on the walls and watching from a low chair, the position below the TV will be better for soundbars. 

TVs placed a bit higher than your eye level will give you the best visual effect. As a result, bar speakers mounted below the TV will fit your ear level more.

Many soundbars come with a compatible wall mounting kit, so you can easily do the installation after buying them. However, when setting up this audio device on the walls, there are some things you need to keep in mind. 

  • You should check if your wall is strong enough to hold the device. Don't try to install bar speakers on thin drywalls, or you will break both your walls and the equipment. 
  • If you use wired soundbars, you should hook them up to other devices before placing them on the walls. In this way, you can adjust the proper length of the speaker's back cables.
  • To have the best connection, you should keep televisions apart from soundbars 10cm - 15cm.

To the TV

Another option to install soundbars is mounting them to televisions. This method will help you avoid drilling holes in your walls. 

Mounting this audio equipment to TVs will bring you better audio experiences. As you won't attach them to the wall, they will make more vibration and improve the sound quality

This installation also allows you to put soundbars to the corners of your room. You can find the detailed guide for corner mounting in the section below. 

No matter where you place your media bars, you should keep a distance of 3m-8m to your listening area. This arrangement will maximize the surround sound effect in the room.

How To Mount Soundbar In Corner?

As we mentioned above, you should place this audio device near your TV. So, the simplest way to append this equipment in a corner is to attach it with a television and put them in the corner. 

Here is a detailed guide for this mounting process. 

Step 1. Get a universal soundbar-to-TV bracket

TVs and soundbars come in a wide variety of models, so you will need a universal soundbar-to-TV bracket. This tool will help you install different media bars on your television. 

These brackets are available in all electronics stores, or you can buy them online. Remember to choose flexible ones to fit your media bar. 

Step 2. Unmount your TV and take out its hanging rack

If you have your television already mounted, you need to take it down. You can check the user's manual for the unmounting guide if you don't know how to do it. 

In case your telly is new, or you haven't mounted it before, you will need to buy wall-mounting brackets for it. 

After that, you have to remove the TV's mounting brace. Both the television's hanging frame and the speaker's brace share the same holes. So, you need to check if they are compatible with each other.

Step 3. Attach the soundbar's bracket and the television's brace to the TV

After checking the compatibility of the TV hanging rack and speaker's brace, you can put them together.

When testing the mounts, you need to mark the positions of the holes to hang the television and media bar. This step will help you attach the wall mount and the speaker's brace to the television.  

Remember to secure the brace and the mount with enough screws. Don't skip any screws if you don't want your valuable electronics to fall. 

During the installation, you should leave some space between the television and the media bar. Thereby you can use the buttons of these devices.

Step 4.  Check the speaker's fit to its bracket and attach the TV to the corner 

Once you have all mounts secured, it's time to check the fit of the media bar with its brackets. When it fits, take it out before mounting the television to the corner of the room. Otherwise, the weight of the media bar can make both devices drop. 

Step 5. Put the soundbar on the bracket and check its operation

In this step, you will put the media bar on its mounting brace and secure it. Then, check its operation by hooking it up to the screen or other media devices and turning it on. 

If your media bar has buttons on the upper side, you should check if you can normally use them. If you install the soundbar's brace too close to the TV, you won't have enough space to use those buttons.
