Product Q&A

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. &nbsp;Will that work or does the soundboard have to be placed on an open vertical surface?

Asked by: MrDavePar
Thanks for reaching out. We recommend mounting the JBL Bar 5.0 Multibeam in an open air near your TV since it needs proper ventilation to avoid overheating and maximize its full potential.

Can I place my soundbar 5.0 in front of my tv instead of wall mounted like in the promo pics?

Asked by: Pegsi
Our JBL Bar 5.0 MultiBeam can be positioned anywhere in the room but for an accurate surround experience, it's recommended that the soundbar be placed where the TV is located. The front of the TV is just OK.

The manual and website for this soundbar refers to &quot;Amazon Music&quot; 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?

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?
