The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Best location for Bose Surround Speakers 700?

Hello, everyone. I just purchased a Soundbar 700 and am looking for some guidance on where I should wall mount the Bose Surround Speakers 700 (which are going to be the next upgrade to the living room audio).


My living/great room is kind of long - more like a big rectangle, open concept into the kitchen. The TV is wall mounted on an angled wall above the fireplace, but it's on a wall mount that lets you pull it off the wall, turn it, angle it towards the couch, the kitchen, etc.


My main question is, for this room (where we spend most of our time on the couch), where on the back wall would be the best placement for the surround speakers? I think one obvious placement would be in-between the windows directly above the couch, but if they need to be more spread out, we could do the outer edges of the windows?


Or should they be in the corners of the room, ceiling mounted? Would that put one of them way too far away from the couch to be practical? I've never done anything like this before and would love to get it right.
