TV Mounting

Creating an immersive home theater experience goes beyond simply setting up a TV and soundbar. The way you mount and position your soundbar can greatly impact the audio quality and overall aesthetic of your entertainment space. These ideas will help you optimize your viewing experience and make a statement in your living room.

1. Above the TV: The Classic Approach

A popular soundbar mounting option is placing it above the TV. This arrangement ensures that the soundbar is in close proximity to the screen, delivering a unified audiovisual experience. To achieve this, you can use a TV wall mount that comes with an additional soundbar bracket. Brands like Mounting Dream offer versatile TV wall mounts with integrated soundbar brackets, allowing for an easy installation.

First, attach the TV wall mount following the manufacturer's instructions. Then, attach the soundbar bracket to the wall mount or directly to the wall below the TV. Make sure the soundbar is aligned with the center of the screen for optimal sound dispersion. Concealing the cables using cable management solutions will give your setup a clean and organized look. This classic approach is ideal for those who prefer a seamless integration of the soundbar with the TV.

2. Floating Shelf: Space-Saving Elegance

If you want to give your home theater setup a sleek and modern touch, consider mounting the soundbar on a floating shelf above the TV. This approach not only enhances the aesthetics but also provides additional space for other audiovisual components or decorative items.

Place the soundbar on the floating shelf, ensuring it is centered and aligned with the TV. Use cable management solutions to hide the cables behind the shelf for a clutter-free appearance. This setup is perfect for smaller rooms or when you want to showcase your soundbar as a stylish centerpiece.

3. Integrated within a Wall Gallery: Artistic Fusion

For those who appreciate a fusion of art and technology, incorporating the soundbar within a wall gallery can be a captivating option. This setup allows you to combine your love for art with a superior audio experience. Start by creating a visually appealing gallery wall using framed artworks, photographs, or decorative elements.

Choose a soundbar that complements the overall theme of the gallery and mount it horizontally within the arrangement. Ensure that the soundbar is positioned at an appropriate height for optimal audio projection. Use a TV wall mount or a soundbar-specific mount to secure it firmly to the wall. Conceal the cables by routing them through the wall or using discrete cable management solutions. This innovative approach transforms your home theater into a sophisticated and artistic space.

4. TV Wall Mount with Integrated Soundbar Shelf: All-in-One Convenience

For a hassle-free solution, consider a TV wall mount that comes with an integrated soundbar shelf. This type of mount offers a dedicated space to place your soundbar, eliminating the need for additional brackets or shelves providing comfort and functionality.

Attach the soundbar shelf to the mount, making sure it aligns with the TV screen. Place your soundbar on the shelf, ensuring stability and proper positioning. This setup is ideal for those who prefer a streamlined and compact arrangement while maximizing the audio quality.

5. Soundbar Suspended from the TV: Unique Theater Ambiance

If you're looking for a truly unique and eye-catching home theater setup, consider suspending your sound bar from your TV that is mounted on the wall. This approach creates a captivating ambiance and allows for optimal viewing angles and immersive sound projection.

To achieve this setup, you'll need a TV bracket and a compatible soundbar mount. Ensure that both mounts can support the weight of your TV and soundbar. Consult the manufacturer's instructions for installation guidelines specific to your chosen mounts.

Securely attach the TV to its bracket, making sure it is level and stable. Next, mount the soundbar beneath the TV using the designated soundbar mount. Make sure to align the soundbar with the center of the TV screen for optimal audio distribution. Cable management is crucial in this setup, as you'll want to hide the wires running from the ceiling to the components. Utilize cable raceways or discreet cable covers to achieve a clean and professional look.

This arrangement not only creates a visually striking focal point in your home theater but also provides an unobstructed view of the screen and immersive sound from the same location. It's a perfect option for those who desire a truly one-of-a-kind home theater experience.

Final Thoughts:

Whether you opt for the classic above-the-TV mounting, a floating shelf arrangement, an integrated wall gallery, a TV wall mount with a built-in soundbar shelf, or a soundbar suspension, these five creative soundbar mounting ideas will elevate your home theater experience.

Remember to choose the appropriate mounting solution based on your specific TV and soundbar models. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully during installation, ensuring the stability and proper alignment of your components. If you need help, hire a professional TV installation service to assist you.

Service representative from Auxe was helpful, professional, courteous, and prompt. I couldn't be more please with the work done on installing two swivel brackets at my home. All done professionally, quickly, and my technician cleaned up after the installation. I love NOT having to complain. My technician from Auxe is a fine example of an employee that takes pride in a job done right, and at fair value. No problem recommending Auxe as the "go to" for your installation needs. show less

The technician was great! He worked quickly, extremely efficient and professional. (I also really wish I hadn’t bought a TV mount ahead of time because Auxe offers much better priced options...would recommend just going with their mounts). It was also super easy to book the appointment, and they had great availability. No hassle. Would definitely recommend based on service. show less

I called Auxe to mount my 65" TV on long weekend. They sent me the quote right away and booked a service for the next day. The price was very reasonable compared to other companies. The technician, arrived on time, installed our TV with great quality in a short time. Measurements and installation were very accurate and exactly as I requested. The HDMI cables I had purchased to conceal in the wall were not long enough. The technician came back again to fish the new cables at no additional cost and finished the job. I am very satisfied with the service and will recommend others to use it. show less
