Where do I put the speakers/subwoofer for my Samsung home theatre surround sound system?

Select your seating position

 

The seating position should be located about 2.5 to 3 times the distance of the TV's screen size away from the TV.

For example, if you have a 46-inch screen then sit 2.92 to 3.50 meters from the screen.

 

Where do I put the speakers/subwoofer for my Samsung home theatre surround sound system? 

 

Front Speakers

 

Place these speakers in front of your listening position, facing inwards (about 45°) toward you. Place the front speakers so that their tweeters will be at the same height as your ear. Align the front faces of the front speakers with the front face of the centre speaker, or place them slightly in front of the centre speaker.

 

 

Centre Speaker

 

It is best to install the centre speaker at the same height as the front speakers. You can also install it directly over or under the TV.

 

 

Surround Speaker

 

Place these speakers to the side of your listening position. If there isn't enough room place these speakers so they face each other. Position them about 60 to 90 cm above your ear, facing slightly downward.

 

Note: unlike the front and centre speakers the surround speakers are used mainly for sound effects. The surround speakers will not emit sound most of the time.

 

 

Subwoofer

 

The subwoofer should be placed on the floor. Its distance from the other speakers isn't important.
