"Dimensional" problem: getting a soundbar for a Samsung TV
So, after watching an opera on our Samsung 43 inch TV, we decided that maybe we needed something to improve on the sound and have begun looking into soundbars.
We've decided on the features that we want, but we've got a "dimensional" problem.
The 43 inch TV (7000 series) sits on a cabinet that is 33 inches wide (so you can see we've already had some issues.) Samsung's TV stand for this model has V-shaped feet, which, of course, means depth at the apex is deeper than at the ends (/\) . The bottom of the TV is barely 3 inches above the table top. There is no height adjustment feature. And, as far as we can tell, there is no way to substitute a third-party stand.
The soundbars we've looked at are either too wide (the Yamaha YAS 106 is 35 inches wide) or too tall (Polk magnifi mini, Sonos Beam).
So, we've been wondering about placing the beam somewhere other than in front of the TV. The wall is out since the TV isn't near one. But we do have space behind the TV which would eliminate the height problem.
Or could we put the sound bar on the floor in front of the TV cabinet? Or stand it on end by the side of the TV?
We were even wondering if the Sonos Beam would work if we "upended it" (it's too high but not too wide so if we "switched" dimensions it would work physically but we can't figure out what that would do to the sound or other factors).
Is this a hopeless case? Do we just need to wait until somebody produces a soundbar that has appropriate dimensions?
