I currently have my soundbar mounted below the tv. Thursday i'm replacing my tv and was wondering if mounting the soundbar above the tv would improve the sound ? Anyone here done this and was there an improvement? My room measures 27' by 11' and the tv is mounted on the wall in the center so viewing the tv i'm only 8' away. Ceiling height is 83". Thanks!

Probably as close to the top of the tv itself. Also heard where it might help to angle the soundbar down just a bit.

If it I too close to the ceiling it would not be good especially because you sit close. I think aiming it towards the listening area is a good idea.

I guess I will be able to try it above the tv and always move it if it doesn't sound very good. Thing is i'm going from a 46" to a 60" screen and don't know how much room it will take away from the top of the tv to the ceiling. According to the specs its going to be around 3". Thanks for the help.

deltadart22,

I have the JVC THBA-1 and it's mounted above my TV. 83" to your ceiling?! Your soundbar should sound great anywhere. lol. I do have it mounted right above the tv and I also have it angled down to where it seems like it's positioned perfectly so you are right in the center of the sound itself. It sounds a lot better mounted above the TV then below it. At least in my house. Adjusting the angle didn't seem to do too much, if anything at all. It looks like it does, but I can't tell a difference. I would say give it a shot and see how it sounds. Good luck.
