    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.

      Answer

      The subwoofer will give you the deeper thump but its not needed to get great base sound. Two setups: play base without sub an playbar with sub. Both sound great.

        No need to switch from a playbase setup! This should be used for an additional entertainment session.

      This is offered with other Sonos components to create a 5.1 system. Are other non-Sonos components needed to create the surround sound? What piece of hardware does the sound processing and broadcasts the correct sound to rear channels?   (1 Answer)

      • 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)

          This is for use directly under the TV.
