Should I place a Soundbar above wall mounted TV?

Hi all

I'd like to mount my Yamaha ysp2200 soundbar above my wall mounted TV. Given the depth of the soundbar I think it's going to be tidier if I mount the bar above the TV (not a mountable bar so may need to use a small floating self - unless anyone knows better option?).

This would result in the soundbar bar sitting 1.8m above the floor (ceiling is 2.4m above floor). Sofa is 3m away from TV. Is this likely to detract from the sound quality? I've read conflicting things about pros and cons of soundbars higher and whether to angle it down or not.

Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Only one way to find out. Conduct an experiment auditioning both ways before the permanent install. Be creative and make some sort of temporary mount. Think duct tape or 3m removable strips and a piece of wood.

My guess is it'll be fine either way straight, but see if you can actually tell the difference above/below and angled/straight to even matter.
