When using the K650 sound bar and two R1 Wireless speakers in surround sound mode over wifi with the latest firmware, The quailty of the sound K650 drops, sounds very muddy. As soon as you use the sound bar on it own, the sound bar improves. this is happening for a quite a few users.

 

can you help.

If the HDMI connection works reliably then there is no reason not to use it. Under the old firmware I found that I got frequent audio dropouts over HDMI and sync problems over both HDMI and optical. With the new firmware the WiFi connection is solid, the surrounds work and the sync is spot on all the time so for me this is the best option.

Same for me. Full wifi is all good. I have centre channel sub support and no sound sync issues, which I did have on optical. 

 

No more connection issues since I reset my router so all good here.

Have any of you guys that are having center channel lfe support issues tried reconnecting subwoofer to soundbar?

 

With the soundbar powered off press the id set button on the back of the subwoofer until blue light flashes. With the soundbar still powered off press the mute button on the remote until id set appears on soundbar. Power on soundbar and subwoofer should reconnect.

Scott, I've tried that multiple times. 

I even unplugged both soundbar and Subwoofer for 24h,but sadly it didn't help.

Hi Peejay

 

Sorry to hear you are still having problems. Did you try a transformers film yet?

Yes Lee! The Optimus speech at the beginning actually sounds good. But, if you listen very closely it doesn't come from the center channel alone. You can also hear it from left and right channel, like I said earlier I noticed that offscreen narrations in dolby are usually spread across all channels.
Skip to 9:10,the conversation between Shia and his gf. Voices come only from the center channel there, and it sounds like cr*p. Shias voice is tiny.
I'm switching on the fly between k650 and ms650 and there's a huge difference. The sounds other than dialogues sound more or less the same on both soundbars.

The Frauhoffer 5.1 test still clearly shows that subwoofer is completely silent during center channel test 😞

Hi Peejay

 

You must have better ears than me. Lol. I had my head pressed right up against the soundbar and couldn't hear his voice coming from the left and right speaker.  if I get time later I will skip to the bit you told me about. 

 

Lee.

Are you playing it from bluray? Maybe a different mix? Although I double checked with Amazon prime version of the movie, and in both versions Primes monolgue plays across all 3 channels (though not as loud on l/r as on center).

Also grouping 2 soundbars and 2 r3's together caused my router to crash. After 2 restarts it finally worked but I think 4 speakers at once is a maximum for it :winking-face:

It is the same on the blue ray as well I have just checked

 

we need a test file to check the centre channel and sub together!

 

anyone got any ideas?
