How to Install a Vizio Sound Bar

By James Crider

The Vizio Soundbar is an all-in-one simulated surround sound speaker system specifically designed to integrate with Vizio HDTVs. The Soundbar uses multiple speakers and an amplifier to simulate surround sound effects with a stereo sound input. Installation is designed to be simple, and should be possible even for those without any technical experience. Though the Soundbar is made by Vizio, it can work with any television or satellite receiver system.

Things You'll Need

  • RCA or S/PDIF Audio Cable

Step 1

Place the Soundbar near your television set. Plug the AC cable into the back of the Soundbar and then plug it into an AC outlet.

Step 2

Connect the RCA or S/PDIF cable to the back of the Soundbar. Plug the opposite end of the cable into your television or satellite audio jacks.

Step 3

Plug in a second audio cable if you've also got a DVD, Blu-ray player or video game console. Plug the opposite end into the equipment's audio jack.

Step 4

Slide the included battery into the Soundbar remote. Press the "Power" button. Turn on your television (and your satellite, DVD/Blu-ray or game console, if applicable.) Adjust the volume with the "+" and "-" buttons.
