So the legs would essentially cover the speaker cones - is that what you mean by impacting the soundbar?
Just bought a new soundbar. The tv is on a stand, since we have vaulted ceilings in the room. It is not a stand which is 36" wide from top to bottom. The top shelf is wide, but the bottom shelves are narrower. If I place the soundbar right in front of the tv, it may interfere with the sensor on the tv. If I place it on a shelf under the tv, it will be bisected in two places by the vertical legs of the stand. Would that impact on the soundbar?
