Sound Bar Installation & Mounting
TV Magic are the sound bar installation experts. Whether it's a simple wall mount and Sound Bar setup or you want that sound bar on the wall - floating below the TV with 'the gap' and not a single glimpse of a cable to be seen; then you better choose TV Magic. Below is stacks of info, plus a small sample of Sound bar installations we have done..
Above, a beautiful JBL sound bar installation featured with a SAMSUNG 60" Smart TV. All wall mounted and not one glimpse of a cable to be seen.
Above, a Sony Sound Bar is mounted below the TV - not a cable to be seen. This Sony sound bar is featured with a Sony 55" TV.
Pictured above: 1x Sonos sound bar installation featured with an LG 55" TV. Sonos sound bars deliver a superior sound quality.
Another Sonos Sound bar installation without 1 trace of a cable to be seen where the low line TV cabinet won't sit.
A very slim, Samsung sound bar makes it difficult to completely hide all the cables - but not for TV Magic. How good does that look?
Where to have your sound bar installed? Top or bottom?
Putting your sound bar above or below your TV is a matter of personal preference. However, we are of the opinion that they look much better - below the TV. Even the sound bar installation we came across with the recess looked nice but we've seen it look much better with the recess below.
What to be wary of - inferior sound bar installations
Mounting a soundbar so that it 'floats' above/below the TV without any cable to be seen is no easy feat (especially when the Soundbar is super slim) and especially when you want everything to be centred and the studs don't line up with exactly where you want it. However, the feat is not too difficult for TV Magic; whom have a world of experience doing this jobs and fixing dodgy jobs done/started by other DIYers or 'so called professionals'. What you want to avoid is having your sound bar installation look something like the picture below. This is called a sound bar /wall bracket combo. It means that the installation is easy. The sound bar sits right up against the TV - right under it... the same sound quality is achieved but we believe it looks - no where near as good! So if you want the premium look and the premium sound bar installation call TV Magic.
Why get a sound bar in the first place? Pros and cons?
A sound bar is a nice alternative to having surround sound. Less clutter, less wires, less things to collect dust. The purpose of a sound bar is to deliver higher quality audio than your TV speakers. Most TV's (even the new expensive ones) have great screens but can have cheap, inferior speakers where the volume only goes so high and quality only goes so high also. A designated speaker system such as a sound bar is a simple way to give you back extra volume and increase audio quality.
What are the best sound bars to get?
Our pick of the bunch as follows:
- Cheap quality sound bars - LG, any non-house hold brand
- Good quality sound bars - Sony, Samsung, JBL - The more you spend, the better performance you get
- Premium Quality sound bars - BOSE, SONOS (more popular ones)
