Sound bar hook up instructions

So I picked up a sound bar. If a subwoofer is included, it can be placed in the most convenient or inconspicuous location, and power that on as well. In other words they're already set up and ready to go without any additional work. Now, pop in your favorite movie, and enjoy your new, more exciting, home audio. In fact, with your system, the wireless sub and sound bar come pre-paired to each other from the factory.

But you don't use

The Yamaha comes with a microphone that will set your levels and other settings automatically. This way sound will only come out of the sound bar. If you want to learn more about getting the best performance out of your subwoofer based on placement, check out the articles on Audioholics, and keep your eyes peeled for future videos. But again, this shouldn't be necessary unless the subwoofer loses its connection to the sound bar. Then simply adjust the level on the subwoofer up or down until it sounds good from your main listening position.

First, unpack your soundbar, make sure you have all the included components, and read the manual. Adjust the subwoofer volume dial on the back of the sub until you reach the most natural blend between low and high frequencies then you can leave it there.

And if you don't want to invest in the money or effort required for a full home theater system, you can get good results from a sound bar. Soundbars typically control only the audio, though we will be looking at a high-end model today that does video switching as well. If you're going to wall mount the sound bar, you should probably wait until all connections have been made and tested.

For best results and simplicity, I would suggest using the fiberoptic digital input. Your soundbar should be mounted on the wall or a table, close to the bottom or top of your display, and centered underneath it. Sounds like you're putting together a nice system there. Check the user manual that came with the sound bar for details on how to get this set up with your specific remote control.

The light should then

Boston Acoustics makes some nice-sounding ones. Once you have the inputs connected, and the sound bar and sub placed more or less in their final positions, plug the power cables into both the sub and sound bar and make sure they turn on. But you don't use cables for this as the sub is wireless. The light should then turn green to show that the devices have been paired.
