Do you want to bring out the best sound quality from your Samsung Soundbar without having to spend a penny? No, we aren’t joking, it is possible. Most people forget about the rear speakers on Samsung soundbars when streaming loud music. If they are adjusted and set up correctly, not only will the sound quality get more nuanced, loud and clear but overall make a huge difference in your everyday streaming experience.
Similarly, adjusting them incorrectly will result in terrible sound quality. That is why in this article we are going to teach you how to adjust rear speakers on Samsung soundbars the correct way in simple steps.
How to Adjust Rear Speakers on Samsung Soundbar
Adjust The Rear Speakers on Samsung Soundbar With These 7 Easy Steps
Just a heads up, make sure your Samsung soundbar is switched on and has sufficient battery power remaining before you start making adjustments. It is also recommended to give the rear speakers a quick wipe and clean-up if it is smothered with dirt particles.
Step 1: Locate the Rear Speakers
You can’t possibly adjust them until you identify them correctly. Rear speakers are typically situated on the sides of the soundbar, either the left or right side. For some Samsung Soundbar models, the rear speakers could be at the very back. The rear speakers are generally labeled in bold letters so it shouldn’t be that difficult to locate them.
Step 2: Connect Them Up
Yes, the rear speakers need to be manually connected to the soundbar using good-quality cables. There are many different cables in the market to choose from, you can buy any but in general, we recommend using a 3.5 mm aux cable or any high-level signal cables such as RCA.
Auxiliary cables are more convenient to use and are compact in size. On the other hand, RCA cables are simpler and more reliable. Now it’s up to you to decide which cable type you want to go for.
Step 3: Work on The Volume Settings
Once you’ve successfully connected the rear speakers to your Samsung soundbar with a wired cable, the next task is to go to settings. You need to adjust the volume based on your liking – whether you want the audio to be too loud, moderate or too quiet. Set at a comforting level for your ears.
Not just the volume, for better sound quality you need to make adjustments to the ‘Balance’ control on the soundbar too next to the volume button. With the balance control, you can adjust the volume intensity of the rear speakers in balance to the front speakers of your Samsung soundbar.
Step 5: Adjust The Delay Control
After you’ve set up the ‘Volume’ and ‘Balance’ options according to your liking, it’s now time to make adjustments to the ‘Delay’ setting option. Through this option, you can delay the sound coming from the rear speakers as compared to the front speakers. But the recommended setting for best streaming experience is to adjust in such a way so that the sounds from both – the front and rear speakers kick off at the same time and flow together for an even louder experience.
Step 6: Time For a Quick Test
It’s hard to make correct adjustments to the Volume, Balance and Delay settings without a song playing in the background. Because the adjustments you’re making may feel right to the touch of your fingers but not sound very well when you play a song or a movie. Therefore, to test if your adjustments are truly perfect and need no modifying, simply play your favorite song and carefully listen.
Step 7: Final Examination
Try to detect any inconsistencies or distortions in the sounds you can hear. We recommend playing a song that you’ve listened to a hundred times before, that way your eardrums will be able to spot any minor changes in the music. If something feels different, don’t be afraid to experiment with the settings until everything feels okay.
And if the sound quality feels great already, then pat yourself on the back for making it this far. Well done!
If your rear speakers don’t seem to be working perfectly no matter how many times you adjust the settings, you should right away examine the cable. Perhaps the cable used to make connection has become loose or faulty – in that case you’ll have to replace it.
Furthermore, to make best use of your rear speakers and bring out awesome sound quality out of them, you must use them in the right environment. There should be plenty of free space surrounding them. Also, make sure no big furniture or electronic appliances are causing any obstructions directly to the speakers.
