Samsung Soundbar and Subwoofer Connection Problems

by tony1040 / August 21, 2014 7:40 PM PDT

I have a Samsung Soundbar HW-F551 and a Samsung wireless Subwoofer PS-WE551, ive been trying to connect the two together without success, the more I read into it the more I think these two units are not compatible, is there any way round this or can I run them independently with wires, any help would be great, Cheers, Tony.

Since the PS-WE551 did not ship with the F551, it won't be compatible, even though it's also a Samsung. You really need the sub that came w/ the F551. I could be totally wrong, but that's usually how it works with the proprietary systems like this.

Ask in the Samsung sub-forum too.

Thanks for the reply, I was aware that this may be the case and was looking for a way round the problem, the sub dosnt need to run wirelessly from the main unit due to its position but as I have both units it would be nice if I could link them some how using cables.
