    How are the satellite speakers connected to the system? Are they wire connected? I'm interested in this system if I don't have to run a wire to connect them. I'm looking to minimize wiring that I have with my current system.   (5 Answers)

      Answer

      The satellite speakers connect to the subwoofer via wires, and the subwoofer connects wirelessly to the sound bar. Each satellite speaker has a single wire that plugs into the back of the speaker, this wire is at least 20 feet long.

          Answer

          I can verify if you just hook up the soundbar with ARC and hook up your other devices directly to the TV, all video signals (including 4K) will work as they should.

            Answer

            Thank you for a great question on our SmartCast™ SB4551-D5! I apologize, but we do not have a measurement of Watts for our sound bars and sound stands. When dealing with a sound bar or any pre-configured audio system, sound pressure and speaker efficiency are the most important specifications to consider. The sound pressure level will be measured in dB. A higher dB level will determine the performance of the speakers at a higher volume level. This soundbar has a sound pressure level of 104dB, with a frequency range of 30Hz-20kHz. If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out to our Support team at 844.254.8088. Thanks again and have a great day! -Collin

          Is there a way for the subwoofer and satellite speakers to turn on when you turn on the sound bar using the remote the system came with? I have to manually flip the switch behind the subwoofer each time I turn on the sound bar.   (5 Answers)

            Answer

            On your remote, press the menu button and then the up or down buttons on the keypad to navigate to the item that says "Link" on your screen. Then click the left or right arrow to make it say "yes", then press the play button. The subwoofer should then be linked and will turn on and off as you turn the soundbar on and off.

          I need to use in-ceiling speakers instead of the included rear channel satellite speakers. Will they work if I simply terminate the existing speaker wire wire with an RCA plug, and connect those to the back of the subwoofer?   (2 Answers)

            Answer

            I don't see why it wouldn't work. The Speakers have a regular RCA plug. Any satellite speaker should work fine via RCA as long as the wattage is not too high(read big speakers).

              Answer

              I have sub alongside sofa since it did not fit under sofa: SUB: 26 1/2" WIDE; 16 1/4 TALL; Stand Base WIDTH 6" ...However, if sub is placed underneath sofa, you'll need at minimum 5" to 7" clearance since sub thickness is about 3 1/4". Speakers: Square 2 3/8 by 2 3/8 by 5 3/8 high ---- Don't worry... there is enough length in cable to go reach other side of sofa when sub is along either side. I recommend speaker stand: Atlantic Model #: SPSCUR47.... wires are hidden and speakers fit perfectly!
