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.

To LeeS

 

I am getting much better sound quality on full wifi multichannel now but rear speakers are so quiet they cannot be heard over the sound bar. I have turned the sound bar down to minus six and rears up to plus six and still no joy. 

 

Looks like sound quality and volume overall has been sorted but now we have the rear speaker issue, which kind of cancelled out the updated firmware fix as I could have got the same result by turning off the rears (it's that quiet). 

 

If I switch back to optical with surround rears sound good again. By the way when I switch to optical I can now do it through the TV or app with same results.

So I just updated mine and the volume of the rear speakers is fine. However I still have to turn my sub down to at least -6. Overall it's much better and at 30 volume it's about as loud as it used to be at 50 before the update

How do you adjust the volume of the rear speakers? The only way I know of is through settings -> sound -> expert settings -> wireless speaker manager -> multiroom link settings -> and then adjust it through the speaker level option. Is that the only way?

Just to confirm I have just used my home theatre set up blueray and my decibel metre. At an equal setting the rears are just as loud as the sound bar.

Thanks...... Definatly not getting any volume at all on rears no matter how its set. I have to put my ear right on it and even the can hardly hear it. 

 

As soon as I switch back to optical with other settings and source kept the same, rears come back to good volume level.

Did you set up the rears through the app or the tv?

HI JCFARROW

 

yes only way is either how you said or on Surround setup in app. 

 

Even with sound bar turned down and rears right up I still can't hear them. 

 

Frustrating me now as it was looking good

Both ways........ tv and then started again with app with same results

 

Only other thing I might try is to restart everything to factory settings and then start from scratch.
