Have you ever watched a movie or show on your TV and been disappointed by the sound quality? Or, maybe you’ve cranked up the volume to hear dialogue only to have it blare so loud that it’s painful? If so, it may be time to invest in a soundbar! Soundbars are relatively inexpensive devices that can boost your TV audio significantly and provide an immersive listening experience. In this blog post, we’ll go over how to find the right soundbar for your TV, mount it properly, connect it to your TV, configure its settings, and enjoy better-sounding audio from your TV!
Mounting the Soundbar
Once you have selected the right sound bar for your needs, mounting it onto the back of your television is fairly simple. Most models come with mounting brackets that allow them to attach directly behind any flat-screen televisions.
First, gather all the necessary tools and equipment. You'll need a drill, screws, a stud finder, and a level. If your soundbar came with a mounting kit, use the hardware included in that kit.
Locate the studs in the wall where you want to mount the soundbar. You can use a stud finder to locate the studs.
Measure the distance between the studs to ensure the soundbar bracket will fit.
Place the soundbar bracket against the wall and use a level to ensure it's straight.
Mark the location of the bracket on the wall with a pencil.
Drill pilot holes into the wall at the marked locations.
Secure the bracket to the wall using the screws.
Position the soundbar on the bracket and attach it to the bracket using the hardware provided with the soundbar.
Once the soundbar is mounted, plug it into a power source and connect it to your TV using the appropriate cables.
Test the soundbar to ensure that it's working properly.
Once your sound bar is mounted securely behind your television all that's left is connecting and configuring it! This process will vary depending on what type of connections are available on both devices but typically involves plugging in power cables as well as connecting AUX cords between them if applicable.
After this step has been completed make sure to configure any settings within the app provided by manufacturer such as adjusting levels or enabling surround sound modes etcetera before actually using the device. Yamaha Soundbars comes with a Musiccast mobile app which lets you configure your soundbar quite easily.
Upgrading your home theater system with a sound bar can drastically improve its audio performance while also providing an immersive listening experience that traditional TV speakers cannot match. And with these steps—finding the right one for you; mounting it on the back of your television; connecting and configuring its settings;—you can quickly upgrade your home theater setup! So why wait?
