FAQs & How-Tos
To disable the smart mode, do the following:
--> Next time you switch on the sound bar, the smart mode is enabled again automatically.
If you find yourself encountering audio dropouts or interference coming from your surround speakers when they are not docked on the main unit, here are a couple of tips to try to remedy that.
1. Try moving any wireless routers that are near the sound bar further away.
2. Reboot router so it can auto select a new frequency channel, since the sound bar and router may be on the same channel resulting in audible interferences
3. Re-position the surround speakers so they are closer to the main unit.
4. Re-calibrate the surround speakers
5. Adjust the volume on the sound bar and gradually raise the volume, if driven to hard the sound bar speakers can distort

If you have a mesh network (more commonly seen in Eero Mesh networks), it is possible that you may experience your satellite speakers or subwoofer intermittently disconnecting from the soundbar. This is similar to normal interference that occurs with products on a similar wireless frequency. The special thing about Eero mesh networks is that they do not allow you to move a device to the 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz band. The system will automatically decide which devices should be on which band and will move them accordingly (switching whenever needed). Some of our soundbars run on a 5Ghz frequency which is where the interference can occur. Since we cannot change the signal in which they operate and we cannot change the band they are connected to via their Eero mesh network, there are a few things you can do to try and stop this from occurring.
- Move the mesh nodes far away from the soundbar
- Use the 2.4Ghz band instead of the 5Ghz band (if your mesh system allows this)
- Ensure to enable/utilize the MU-MIMO setting (not applicable to all mesh systems). Please refer to your router's website to see if MU-MIMO is being utilized by default.
What is MU-MIMO?
MU-MIMO stands for Multi-User, Multi-Input, Multi-Output. This allows for the router to send a signal to multiple devices at one time vs. the previous version in which the router would be able to connect to multiple devices, but only send the signal to one device at a time.
NOTE: You may notice that when the soundbar is turned on, there may be a dip in the immediate internet speed, but it will go back to normal within less than a minute.
