Surround sound..


I have a samsung Surround system. The layout of my living room makes it very hard to get a nice set up going with the speakers. I have no way of running wires to get my rears to be behind the couch. I know they make the wireless add on that could help me out but does anyone know exactly how it works??? Do only the rears hook up to it or is it mids and sub too?

Would need to see the layout of your living room, but if you're comfortable doing the work, they can be hidden behind baseboards.

on mine i just poked the wires along the base board push them in the wires will go under the base boaed. Their is a tack strip that the carpet is held by the tack's. and than base board is put on so their should be enough room. No when you come to a door way i took off the door molding and put wires in their. I built my house so no problum doing this. It take's a little time but it work's . I have the bose system and harmon karden unit.

Attic by chance?? if so you may have to run the wires from the attic down in the corner's to speakers ?? The sound isn't balance out good if you can't get the speaker's set right.

Can't go above. I asked about a basement to see if he could go under the floor. No dice there, either.

Keep going under the baseboard until you get to the spot you want to put your left speaker. It'll follow the same path you've already run. It'll just be longer
