Adding Rear Speakers for Soundbars

As more and more clients are adding Soundbars to their home entertainment systems, a big decision is what rear speakers can I add to create full surround? The answer is it varies by manufacturer. For Bose, the only options are the Bose surround speakers. Note, although referred to “wireless rear speakers”, the speakers come with a pair of receivers that require a connection to an electrical outlet. Additionally, speaker wires are needed from the receivers to the rear speakers. Unless you have electrical outlets near the rear speaker locations, this creates an aesthetic problem with the exposed electrical cords. For the Sonos Soundbars, there are a couple of options. The 1st option is adding a pair of Sonos SL-1 speakers for the rear speakers. The SL-1 speakers plug directly into an electrical outlet and again could present aesthetic problem with the exposed electrical cords. A 2nd option is to install a pair of flush mounted in wall/in ceiling speakers and connect to a Sonos amplifier that can be hidden anywhere in the home. We recommend the Bose 791/891 speakers. This option will sound the best and eliminates any potential aesthetic issue. To schedule a FREE Virtual consultation, please call 888-775-2673 or visit our website @ www.wbsouth.com/freeihc .
