Installing a Vizio Soundbar: Where Does It Work Best?

Choosing where to install a Vizio soundbar can be difficult because there are so many variables to consider, such as the type of TV you have and the features you want. Here are some tips on where to install your Vizio soundbar.

The soundbar can be placed inside your TV if it has an integrated tuner. Due to its proximity to the TV’s tuner, you will get great audio. In the absence of an internal tuner on your TV, or if you wish to use a soundbar with other features (such as Bluetooth and optical audio), you may have to relocate it elsewhere in your house.

It can be mounted on the wall, placed on a shelf, or stand nearby. Check your TV’s documentation to see if your soundbar needs to be mounted in a particular way. Additionally, it would help if you considered the audio output of your soundbar.

Generally, Vizio TVs come with both HDMI and optical audio outputs, so you can choose which to use. If you only have one HDMI port, make sure it is connected to the main HDMI port. Choose the HDMI port that is closest to where you will be sitting in the home theater when you have several HDMI ports available.
