I would like to place the sound bar in an enclosed shelf on our tv stand. The shelf is open in the front but is only about 4 or 5 inches high. Will that work or does the soundboard have to be placed on an open vertical surface?
Can I place my soundbar 5.0 in front of my tv instead of wall mounted like in the promo pics?
does it have alexa voice ? and does it support usb playback ?
The manual and website for this soundbar refers to "Amazon Music" but doesn't mention other Alexa Skills. Is there a limit so that it only works with Amazon Music Skill, or will other Alexa Skills work, like say, the BBC Sounds skill?
It’s paired and says done but no change in sound
Can the display on the front be turned off? Clearly it would interfere with a home theatre experience.
Sometimes the soundbar won't connect (via Bluetooth) to my mobile, or respond to the remote (with new batteries!), or allow me to turn the power on directly. It's also connected to the TV via HDMI cable, no issues. What's wrong w/the B'tooth?
Can I add a wireless subwoofer?
