Installing A Soundbar...

by Singhinator / July 31, 2008 8:38 AM PDT

Is it possible for me to install my Sony HT-CT100 soundbar directly on the bottom of my Bravia TV (32XBR6)? If so, what hardware would I need to get it done myself?

you don't need any extra hardware. just place it there. The system includes a cable to connect speaker to the subwoofer/reciever. I have Bravia 40" and the speakers bar perfectly fits in front of it.

Can't Detect Surround Sound on my HT-CT100
by howardc1 / August 1, 2008 12:13 AM PDT

I bought this unit 5 days ago based on the great reviews on Cnet. No matter what adjustments I make, I really don't detect any surround sound from the back. In fact, the speakers that come with my 55" rear projection Bravia do a much better job. The setup is so simple that I can't imagine what's wrong. Yes, I'm using the optical cable to connect my TV audio output, and I set that sound to go to the external speakers. And yes, the subwoofer is more than one foot from the wall (it's about 6 feet from the wall). That itself is confusing since on a Sony forum they say the surround sound does NOT come from the bass bouncing off the wall. Anyway, the sound is very "deep," and of excellent quality, and I do occasionally sense a sound from the front sides, but that's about it. Please advise, thanks.

Two things. . .

Surround sound, specifically rear sound, from front speakers is advertising hype.

If you have more questions you need to create a new thread.

"No matter what adjustments I make, I really don't detect any surround sound from the back." Thats because there are no speakers in back, DUH!!

If you bought it within 30 days, by all means BRING IT BACK. Those things work in 1% of all rooms. For the other 99% of us who do not have perfectly square rooms, with nothing on the walls,no windows, and a single chair in the middle, they produce glorified stereo; thats it.
