Although they frequently have unattractive wires, soundbars are an excellent way to enhance your audio experience. If you’re like most people, you probably don’t want cables and wires trailing behind your television. Not the most beautiful sight, in my opinion. Thankfully, there are a number of inexpensive solutions to conceal your soundbar wiring. This blog post will go through several easy ways to conceal the wiring for your soundbar.
You recently purchased a new soundbar, and now you’re wondering how to conceal the speaker wires. You’re in the correct place, I suppose. Finding a technique to conceal soundbar wires is essential because they might add a lot of new cables to your setup. even more so if you’re also using subwoofers or additional speakers with your soundbar. But don’t worry, there are lots of ways to maintain the neat appearance of your new audio setup.
Zip ties and hooks
Utilizing zip ties and hooks is one of the simplest and most efficient ways to conceal soundbar cables. A few zip ties and a few tiny command hooks are all you need. The first step is to bundle all of the cords coming from your soundbar with a zip tie. After that, use the other end of the zip tie to fasten it to a command hook. Now you can quickly attach the hook to the rear of your TV stand together with the bundle of cords. The best thing about this technique is how cheap and undetectable it is. You could spend less than $10 for the entire affair. The absence of a TV stand or other piece of furniture with a back to cover the hooks would be the main negative.
Using cord clips is another well-liked technique for concealing soundbar wiring. These tiny, low-cost clips adhere to your cords and conceal them from view. Cord clips can be fastened practically anyplace, including on walls, furniture, and even behind televisions.
You may choose the ideal ones for your needs from a variety of sizes and forms. Additionally, a box of 20 to 30 clips often costs less than $20, making them incredibly cost-effective. The main drawback of cord clips is that they can be quite large and that some cables might not be compatible with them (e.g., thick HDMI cables).
Fabric cable management sleeve
You may always purchase a cloth cable management sleeve if you want to conceal your soundbar cables but don’t want to use any hooks or clips. There are several sizes available for these stretchy fabric sleeves. They’re ideal for concealing power, audio, and video cables as well as any other kind of cable.
Although fabric sleeves don’t have the same elegant appearance as some of the other techniques on our list, they are quite good at concealing wires and don’t require any glue or other types of attachment to your walls or furniture. The only drawback is that if you need to conceal a lot of cords, you might need to purchase additional sleeves.
Cable management box
If you want to entirely conceal the wires running to your soundbar, you may always utilize a cable management box. You can route your wires through the walls or floors using these boxes, which are made to store all of your cables. You can choose one that is ideal for your needs from a range of sizes.
The cable management box could be used in conjunction with one of the other solutions, like cord concealers or wall clips. All of your cords will be concealed and out of sight as a result. The cost of cable management boxes ranges from $20 to $30, which is slightly more than some of the other solutions on our list. However, if you want to totally conceal your soundbar wiring, they are well worth the cost. You can also conceal your surge or no break protector in the box.
Cable concealer raceway kit
A wall cord cable concealer is an option if you’re searching for a more long-lasting fix. You run your cables via plastic or metal plates that are attached to the wall. To fit any decor, they are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles.
Installing wall cord cable concealers takes only a few minutes and is quite simple. Additionally, they offer a sophisticated and polished appearance ideal for concealing soundbar wires (or any other type of cables).
Hide the Soundbar Wires Behind the Wall
Running the Soundbar wires behind the wall can be an incredibly creative way to truly hide the wires from view if you are in a position where you own your home and the wall that you are choosing to mount your Soundbar and other media equipment on is not blocked by a fireplace or dense insulation, for example.
To accomplish this, you may either utilize a simple kit that includes all of the necessary parts, or you can follow a tutorial that explains how to measure and realign the wires (although sometimes it will be missing a few tools). The kits typically include plugs, coverings, and other items to cover any incisions you make in your wall to use this technique.
