Question about Harmon Kardon SB16 Soundbar with 100 Watt Wireless Subwoofer Bundle

Open Question

Just purchased HK SB 16 soundbar. Can;t get it to work! It powers up, but having tried 3 different ways to connect it (per manual) it has no sound! It powers up but no sound at all. Help.

Have a Samsung Smart tv. Tried connecting to tv with stereo audio cables, tried connecting to satellite tuner with Optical Digital audio cables, and the blu-ray player with a coaxial digital audio cable. Tried switching tv speakers to external. Nothing is working as far as sound, even though the soundbar is powered up.

SOURCE: Sound is really quiet with inputs

Hello. Please be sure that you are plugging your iPod into the tape in, or play, and not into the record out, or record. If you have these reversed, you will greatly lower the signal level going to the amplifier.

I think you are looking for an optical in input on the rear panel of the receiver.

Can be there is some problems in its power supply. Normally sound bars uses SMPS power supply rather than transformer. Its better to consult a service tech for support Because repairing an SMPS power supply is skilled work also you have to take lots of safety measures.

How do I replace sound bar on monitor?


Deb Powell,
Reverse the steps listed below. They are for connecting the sound bar.
1. Working from the rear of the monitor, attach the Soundbar aligning the two slots with the two tabs along the bottom rear of the monitor.
2. Slide the Soundbar to the left until it snaps into place.
3. Connect the Soundbar with the power brick.
4. Plug the power cables of the power brick into a nearby outlet.
5. Insert the lime-green mini stereo plug from the rear of the Soundbar into the computer's audio output jack.
NOTE: Soundbar Power Connector - 12V DC output is for optional Dell Soundbar only.
NOTICE: Do not use with any device other than Dell Soundbar.
Thank You,

Does the Samsung UN50f6300af smart led tv support the Samsung Wireless audio soundbar HW-H450?


Because your TV is not Bluetooth-enabled and you are trying to connect it to a Bluetooth-enabled soundbar via Bluetooth. There are other ways to connect your TV to the soundbar:

1. analog AUDIO OUT (L/R) of your TV to the AUX IN on the soundbar (use a 3.5 mm.-to-RCA audio cable).
2. Optical OUT on your TV to Optical IN on the soundbar.
3. HDMI port to HDMI port (this may not work if your TV is not ARC compliant you have to try).

You get better sound quality with option 2.or 3. (if this one works for your TV)

Here is the link to download the soundbar's User Manual for help with the connections:

Connecting a sound bar


Typically you will connect the RCA audio output jacks to the audio input jacks on the sound bar, but if your television does not have RCA audio output, you may have to buy additional hardware to make the soundbar work. If your TV has a headphone jack, then you will need to purchase an 1/8" Headphone connector to RCA Connector cable from a local electronics or audio store. If your TV doens't have any audio outputs, you may need to purchase a digital tuner box and connect it to your TV and soundbar.

How do I connect my Philips Soundbar to my Technika TV


Go on to your television and select the programming selections select sound look for the sound around or a list saying stereo or 5.1 or 7 channel they have different combos you want to select the 3 way and surround sound that should do it . I am surprised you didn't get a bass box for the floor really builds up the sound or check out the Bose they are awesome.

Cant connect a rca soundbar to my emerson tv


If your Emerson TV has a digital coax output connector identified as such and your RCA soundbar has a digital coax input connector, you will have to purchase an appropriate cable and connect it. Some soundbars, such as Vizio, have left and right RCA audio inputs to match similar outputs on a TV set.

Connecting 4 ohm speakers


I don't think it has anything to do with the impedance. The amp and speakers are well in the allowed limits. The only time this is a problem is if you connect an amp with a greater impedance then the speakers.
This sounds like something to do with the HK 990. It could have a fault on it. You could try listening with headphones if the HK 990 has a socket for them. If they have low sound, there's an electrical fault in the power amp of the HK 990.

We bought a Samsung Soundbar x810 but the Subwoofer does not seem to be working properly although the blue and red led light up. I have tried rebooting/resetting per user manual instructions but it still...


Purchased a x810 & everything tests out fine except TV signal sounds from cable box. We have the Comcast cable box connected to the 50" Samsung Plasma TV hooked up to Samsung x810 Soundbar all using HDMI cables. But we are not getting cable shows sound through Soundbar. Please advise
