Set Up A Home Theatre System On A Samsung TV.

Last modified : Aug 13. 2019

Although the components of the home theatre system can be positioned in any manner, following is a recommended set-up for optimal performance.


Once you have connected your home theatre system, you will need to go into the TV settings and select which speakers are used for the audio output. For more information on how to connect via Bluetooth, you can find help on Connect Bluetooth Audio Devices to Samsung TV's or for wired connections, go to Use the HDMI-ARC port on a Samsung TV.

Selecting the Listening Position  


The listening 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, locate the listening position 2.92 to 3.50 meters from the screen. 


Front Speakers 


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


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 Speakers 


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

Unlike the front and centre speakers, the surround speakers are used mainly for sound effects. Sound will not come from them all the time. 




For best performance, it is best to place the subwoofer in a corner or beside the wall. To test if the subwoofer is in a good position, play music (preferably with a lot of lows).

Please note: Surround speakers must be connected to the wireless receiver module.
