I just purchased a Samsung hw-fm55c soundbar with wireless sub-woofer at Costco. I am wondering if I can mount the soundbar on a shelf next to my Samsung 55 inch LED TV since the ddv player, etc are on the shelf and I won't have to have hdmi cables running along the wall.

Can anyone provide some guidance if this would sound okay? Also, where should I place the sub-woofer? Can I put it across the room, next to the seating area of our family room?

Soundbars should be placed either just above or just below the TV, otherwise the audio is going to seem disconnected from the picture. Put the subwoofer anywhere you want. Try different locations to see where it sounds best.

You want the soundbar either directly above, or below, your tv.

If you have no way to put the soundbar directly above or below yout TV, look at using something like this:


The subwoofer can go anywhere. Mine is behind my couch.
