Question 5: How do I mount my soundbar if I do not have the mounting template?

[ Edited ]

For information on selecting screws and other hardware, see Question 2.

 

  1. Select a location close to your TV and directly in front of the viewing/listening position.
  2. Use a pencil to mark two spots on the wall that are 20.4 inches (51.9 cm) apart. Make sure that the two spots are level.
  3. Drill two holes on the wall where your pencil marks are.
  4. If you are mounting on drywall, concrete, or other wall types, insert an appropriate wall anchor (not included).
  5. Secure two screws (not included) to the wall in the holes you just drilled. The screws must protrude from the wall by about ¼".
  6. Align the soundbar with the screws, then hang the soundbar on the screws.

Question 9: What should I do if my Bluetooth device keeps disconnecting from my soundbar?

  • Shorten the distance between your soundbar and your Bluetooth device. The maximum distance is 30 feet (10 meters). However, this may be reduced if the signal has to pass through walls or other obstructions.
  • If the battery on your Bluetooth device is low, recharge the battery.
