Questions & Answers for Samsung 2.1-Ch. Home Theater Soundbar Speaker System with Wireless Subwoofer

Question

Samsung - 2.1-Ch. Home Theater Soundbar Speaker System with Wireless Subwoofer connections

What sort of connections does the 2.1 Channel soundbar and wireless subwoffer require. I have a subwoofer jack on the back of my received that looks like an RCA jack. I assume there is some sort of transmitter that attaches to my receiver. Same for the soundbar. Does it plug into a center speaker output on the receiver or seperate left and right speaker outputs. My speaker connections are just standard old bananna plugs.

You do not need a receiver for the sound bar. In fact, I'm not sure if it would even work. The bar has an optical input/output as well as an audio in input. The sub simply plugs into any power outlet and connects wirelessly after a quick set-up.

Question

Hook to a TV?

So if I am reading correct, this soundbar can not be hooked directly to a tv. I currently have no other home theater system, and was going to buy a soundbar, I just wanted to make sure I can hook it up to my Flat screen directly.

Thanks for the question. As a matter of fact, you can connect the soundbar directly to the TV. You can either use the analogue 3.5mm jack to connect to your TV's analogue red/white outputs (use a 3.5mm to RCA converter cable) or you can use the optical audio input on the soundbar to connect to your TV's optical audio output with an optical audio cable.

If your tv allows you to connect your mp3 player to it through usb or Audio out than you can enjoy your music on a really good sound system.

We do not get information about the pricing of products. There may have been a sale on this item or a manufacturer incentive.

Question

Hookup to Samsung TV

Hello, I just purchased the Samsung Home Theatre Soundbar Speaker System. I currently have my Samsung 46 inch LCD TV mounted on the wall. Is it required that the TV be removed from the wall to install the Samsung Soundbar Speaker System? I have a Sony blue ray player. If you can please explain the proper way to hook up the soundbar to my current set-up. Please note that I do not have a receiver, just a blue ray player.

Thank you.

Thanks for the question. Since the Samsung SoundBars come with an on-board sound driver, a receiver is not needed. All you will need to do is connect your TV to the SoundBar via either a Red/White RCA to 3.5mm jack cable or an optical cable. In that sense, you may need to move the TV slightly so that you can connect the wires properly. However, once connected, all you will need to do is mount the SoundBar on the wall (the SoundBar does not directly connect to the TV for mounting purposes). Also, assuming you already have your BD player connected to your TV, the sound will travel from your BD player, to the TV then to the SoundBar via the previously connected cables.

Great question! You will most definitely be able to mount the SoundBar above the TV. The supplied wall mount will allow you to mount the unit either above or below the TV on a wall.

Thanks for the question. From the information I have, the Samsung SoundBars do not offer a built in FM receiver. In order to listen to FM stations, it is recommended that you connect an FM receiver to this unit.

well subwoofers are supposed to non directional but that is for real audiophile level subwoofers. i would put 8-10 inches from a wall in front of you ... not behind unless the room is very small.

Thanks for the question. From the information I have, it seems that the Dolby audio codecs are only supported via the optical cable. The analogue audio input does not support the Dolby digital standard which outputs the sound at 5.1.

Thanks for the question. Since the Samsung SoundBars only offer two audio inputs and no outputs or speaker connections, you will not be able to connect this unit to other devices to send audio out from the SoundBar. The SoundBars are mainly designed to compliment your Samsung TV's audio; however, if you have a receiver that offers an audio output, then connect that output to your Sound Bar, you should be able to hear your audio from the unit.
