Hi i got a soundbar for my grandparents and they always say it sounds muffled. Model is samsung r60-c. I have a 7.2 setup for my self and it sounds amazing all the time. They cant understand what people are saying. I have tried the eq setting(ex the frequency lvls or 300 hz 600 hz 1.2 khz and so on). I cant get it to sound right to my ears or theres. Is there anything i can do or do i need to buy a better soundbar? They don't want a receiver and speakers they don't like clutter. Clutter is what they call speakers next to tv.

thanks darthwarren.

I'd say a newer soundbar stronger in the frequencies you want? Or more amenable to eq? Are you sure it's not simply the positioning of the speakers/listening position to an extent?

Tilted up is good, but that doesn't really indicate if its positioned well (like a reflective surface in front of it). What size speakers does the current soundbar use? I'm not up on whats available in soundbars, tho I'd look for one with larger drivers in the main soundbar, those tiny ones in the Samsung aren't helping.

Since the soundbar is identical to one you bought for yourself and yet to your ears does not sound right as yours does perhaps it's defective?
