First, choose where to place the soundbar. It must be located where it will be audible to everyone. If you are in an ideal situation, the soundbar needs to be mounted directly below or above the TV with the center of the screen aligned with it. Make sure that the space for the soundbar is large enough, so it has a stable platform and that nothing is over it or around it.

Optical (Toslink): Moreover, you may utilize the optical connector for the vision output at the back of your television set and, consequently, link it to the optical input at the back of your soundbar. This links a leader to digital audio in an undegradable, deep, and clear sound transmission.

RCA: If you are connected to an older Television or a device that has no HDMI or optical outputs, use RCA cables to connect the analog audio output on your TV to the analog audio input on your soundbar instead. Please note that this may lead to lower audio quality than the digital backup.

Bluetooth: Some soundbars have added wireless connectivity through Bluetooth so that you can stream audio from your cell phone, tablet, or other Bluetooth-enabled devices. Just connect your device to the soundbar and start streaming directly your chosen music or your desired podcast with the help of a wireless connection.
