I saw Vizios "expert" answer....by "not recommended" means "NO!" I have this product and live in a small 1 bedroom apt so my living room is spacious by any means. I placed the subwoofer in the corner behind my recliner, approx 10 ft away from the tv/soundbar and it constantly goes on and off...but placed right next to he tv and it works fine. So, apparantly any piece of furniture will disrupt its performance. I am very disappointed in this product.

Thank you for inquiring about our product.

Subwoofer can be placed anywhere in the room within 60 feet of the Sound Bar. Placement near a corner of the will produce more bass in the room. It may work behind a piece of furniture but it isn't recommended.

Thanks again and have a great day.

Thank you for inquiring about our product.

Because some people do not want to use the sound bar all the time we have designed the sound bar to turn on and off separately. Depending on your TV functionality, you may be able to install the sound bar to shut on and off with the TV.

Thanks again and have a great day.

Question

whats up with the subwoofer?

I have a small living room and placed the subwoofer in the corner behind a recliner, which puts the subwoofer about 10 ft from the tv/soundbar but it cuts in and out. Why cant it perform with only a recliner between the woofer an the tv/soundbar? sitting right next to the tv it works fine but that isnt where i wanted it.....very disappointed.
