    My TV has a four leg stand which fits within the dimension of the playbase but it will be more a concentrated load on the outer edges of the playbase. Is this okay? Will it damage the playbase?   (4 Answers)

      Answer

      The stand on my Samsung is the same. The Playbase is solidly built and can handle that.

        Playbase has a built in sub. If you already have the standalone sub, no need to switch.

    • Question
      Does this need to be placed under the wall mounted TV to sound best? Or can it be on a stand several feet away from the TV? If so, I'm thinking the sound bar is the better option because we aren't mounting the TV on the wall.   (5 Answers)
