The subwoofer deals with low frequencies, which are not very directional (ie, it's harder to tell where the sound is coming from).  So where you put it isn't critical to the sound, provided that it's not behind curtains or something that will soak up sound.  The bigger speaker you have in your subwoofer; the less important the position is.
Putting it in a corner is something you're going to have to try, but you may even end up with better bass if you do, as a corner can act as a soundbox and emphasise bassy sounds.  Conversely, your subwoofer may not like being in a corner and interference effects from the sound reflections could degrade the sound.  Like I say, try it and see what it sounds like.  It depends upon your subwoofer, what else is in the corner, precise positioning, and how reflective to sound the corner is.  If it sounds terrible, move it a few inches and try again.

You can put it in front of you next to the TV, no problem.  The only downside it it's a big ugly box.  My wife always makes me hide my subwoofers behind something.

Can't sync my JBL SB400 subwoofer to the soundbar??....it flashes blue and goes back to orange. Sound bar works but can't pair sub!..HELP!!


PAIRING THE JBL SB400 FOR WIRELESS OPERATION
After turning the soundbar and subwoofer on for the first time, you will need to "pair" the subwoofer and soundbar so they both operate at the same wireless frequency. To pair the units, press the Wireless Pairing switches on both units within 30 seconds of each other. The units will communicate with each other and operate at the same frequency.

Subwoofer not working.


Most likely, the "remote" wire to the subwoofer amplifier has come off or is not making good connection.

If you are connecting the soundbar to your TV with the digital audio cable, make sure to select "D IN" using the source button on the soundbar. Bluetooth (BT) is a separate source from another device. (phone, etc.) The TV will need to be set to use the digital audio output and probably PCM format. (?) The subwoofer is preconfigured at the factory to mate up with your soundbar. (See below instructions - your soundbar includes the amplifier:)

Digital audio output setting:
After connecting an amplifier with digital audio input and
external speakers as shown, you should set an audio
output format compatible with the programme you are
watching or the device connected.
Go to "HOME" > "TV Menu" > "Setup" > "Option" >
"Terminal setting" > "Digital audio output" > select
"PCM" or "Bitstream".
NOTE
• When set to "Bitstream", Dolby Digital is output when the Dolby
Digital or Dolby Digital Plus audio formats are received. When
set to "PCM", PCM is output no matter what audio formats are
received.
• When set to "Bitstream", HE-AAC audio formats can be output
as Dolby Digital.

Vizio help


Not sure the issue. HDMI from cable box to TV. Same with Vizio.
The soundbar usually connects to the optical out from the TV to the in on the soundbar. Subwoofer has to be paired to the soundbar. Instructions should explain or maybe find online by manufacturer

The blue light still continues to flash


Push in and hold the switch on the back of the subwoofer until the light starts blinking fast. Then, with the soundbar power turned off, hold the mute button on the remote. "ID SET" should show up on the display. Then turn on the soundbar, and the subwoofer should link to it.

It is not latching on to the soundbar transmitter. Is the locked light on the device turning on.
Wireless devices are sometimes known to drift. Is the sub silent when the soundbar power is off ?. Even then if its making this sound, the subwoofer amplifier is oscillating at very low frequency. You will need professional help and needs to be repaired.
