Reasons You Should Place the Soundbar Below a TV

Most soundbars are designed to be positioned below a TV. When these speakers are positioned above the TV instead, the setup will not look visually right.

Superior Audio Performance

Soundbars can be wireless or wired. If there are cables to work with, the soundbar could be placed as far as the length of the cable.

Easy Wiring
