Bose soundbar 700 setting up in an upward angle makes it better

Hi,

Does anyone tried this? setting up in an angle to get a better audio performance.

Why would aiming the sound of your TV over your head result in a better sound?  I don't think so.  I want the center channel aimed directly at my ears and the left and right channels bouncing off the walls back to my ears.

My Soundbar sits in a cabinet that is less hight than ear level and I feel my audio comes from down than at ear level

First, you need to take the soundbar out of a cabinet.  It won't work properly in a cabinet.  Next, aim it at ear level.

It might sound better aimed at your ears, not your knees.

I would be concerned about stability and the effect on the sound ports on the back of the sound bar and phase guides(side and rear projection). I would recommend a new cabinet, one that would raise the sound bar to a better listening height. Especially if you can hear the sound is coming from a lower point now.

I feel my phase guides are projecting of the ceiling than walls on the sides. Will think about getting a heigher stand

Hi All!

 

Thank you for taking the time to post to the community!

 

I would add that if you feel you are experiencing poor audio quality, or you wish to optimise your audio experience, I would recommend running AdaptiQ again as it will calabrate the audio from the SoundBar to your listening space!

 

I hope this proves helpful! Have a great day!
