About the Samsung SWA-8500S

Turn your Samsung sound bar into a wireless surround system

It's fascinating to me that many sound bars can simulate surround sound so well. But you know what's even better? The real thing! Add the Samsung SWA-8500S surround speaker kit to your compatible Samsung sound bar for true wraparound sound — without the added stress and clutter of running wires to the back of your room.

Turn your Samsung sound bar into a wireless surround system

It's fascinating to me that many sound bars can simulate surround sound so well. But you know what's even better? The real thing! Add the Samsung SWA-8500S surround speaker kit to your compatible Samsung sound bar for true wraparound sound — without the added stress and clutter of running wires to the back of your room.

How it works and what we mean by "wireless"

While you don't have to run speaker wire from the front to the back, there are some wires involved. You do have to connect the left and right speaker to the amplifier/receiver module using the included speaker wire. The amp/receiver plugs into an AC outlet and communicates wirelessly with your sound bar to deliver surround sound.

Small, Compact, & Worth It!

Steven from Mandan, ND on 8/27/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very easy to hang and light! Receiver connected even through a 1/2 sheetrock wall about 12 feet away. These little speakers definitely add surround. Small and Compact

Pros: Light, Small Profile, Pretty big sound! Easy to hang

Cons: would be nice if remote had a volume control for these as it does for the Sub. Still well worth it.

Excellent surround sound

Crutchfield customer from Kailua Kona, HI on 8/22/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Read reviews so expected they would add to my soundbar experience. But at least two reviews complained about the inability to adjust the volume. An upgrade? Just with the remote I can boost the back speakers if I want more music or peripheral sound. Or I can lower it if I want to focus more on the dialogue. In conjunction with the Samsung soundbar and the Samsung TV-WOW!

Pros: Great surround Easy setup Remote allows adjusting bass, treble, center, and especially front to back

Cons: Threading wire through stands was a drag

These are not wireless speakers. They have a wireless receiver and wired speakers. Completely false advertising and barely have good enough sound to even notice their there. The wires are more noticable than the sound.

Pros: Wireless receiver

Cons: Has wires Small sound

I've had mixed success with these so far in getting them to pair and sound loud enough with the bar and sub. Maybe a learning curve on my part.

Pros: Good sound from small speaker

Cons: Loudness is sometimes a little wanting.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This unit is deceiving, small speakers that pack a punch. The unit linked with the soundbar before I was able to turn the sound bar off. The set up is easy, just match the color coded speakers and wires and you are done. My expectations were met, and with Crutchfield, great price. Thanks.

Pros: Easy set up, great sound, great price

Cons: Does not link to older Samsungsub woofer

Samsung SWA-8500S

David J from Denham Springs, LA on 1/1/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

We're using these in a 14 by 14 ft. family room paired to a Samsung sound bar. Getting the speakers to link up via Bluetooth to the Samsung sound bar was quick and easy. However, performance is very lacking. No volume control. You have to pick up the speaker and put it next to your ear to hear anything. We tried all the different sound settings available on the sound bar with no apparent change in volume. Turning up the sound bar volume just may it louder with not change in the speakers. Very disappointing.

Pros: Easy set up

Cons: No volume control. Very weak sound, you would not know they were on unless you put one up to your ear.

Crutchfield response on 1/7/2019
David, we're sorry you're having issues with your speakers. Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Tech Support team.

Sound good, no issue connecting to soundbar!

Ken from Glenside, PA on 12/19/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

DIsclaimer - I am an amateur when it comes to audio. I picked up the HW-MM55C Soundbar last week and since I had some reward $$ available from car audio purchases I decided to add the the rear surround speakers. UPS rang the doorbell and less than 30 minutes later the speakers were hung and working with no problem. I followed the directions carefully because I had read that others connecting via bluetooth. My speakers connected the first time I attempted the connection. Put on a Star Wars movie to test them out and worked perfectly.

Pros: Easy to install Great little speakers

Cons:

Could not get them to connect to my Samsung sound bar that I purchased. Had techs from Crutchfield and Samsung on the phone trying to get these to work with no luck. I am so frustrated that words can't describe.

Pros: Look nice perfect size for what I wanted.

Cons: Would not connect to the sound bar

They work well. Put the volume on 6 and let them work. Don't get to carried away just because you are hearing them right at the moment. They work at different volumes as the surround part of the system works.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

When I first got the sound bar and the rear speakers it would work in surround sound. I have had to fool with it repeatedly though to keep the rear speakers working. Now I can't get them to work no matter what I do. I have reset the amp and reinstalled the whole set up without success.

Pros:

Cons: Does not work.

Bought this set a year ago. Excellent Sound Bar and crisp deep base sub-woofer sound. As for the rear speakers - Put the remote to 'Music' setting then Rear Speaker (max) volume at #6. You should get to hear 'surround sound' but I am not sure about 'Dolby Digital'.

Features

Wireless Rear Speaker Kit: The Samsung SWA-8500S Wireless Surround Kit lets add rear speakers to select Samsung soundbars without all the wires. Together, the SWA-8500S kit and your Samsung soundbar, can create a 4.1 channel system for a true surround sound experience. Enjoy an immersive, clutter-free experience and get great sound all around by simply connecting a wireless rear module and two rear speakers. It will bring a new dimension to your favorite movies and TV shows.

Compatibility: The SWA-8500S Wireless Rear Speaker Kit is compatible with the following Samsung Soundbars (all sold separately)-

  • M Series: HW-M450, HW-M4500, HW-M550, HW-M560
  • N Series: HW-N450, HW-N550, HW-N650
  • R Series: HW-R550, HW-R650
  • Q Series: HW-Q60R, HW-Q70R

Wireless Rear Module: The included Wireless Rear Module receives a wireless audio signal (up to 30') from your compatible soundbar and features a built-in 2ch amplifier, so you don't have to run speaker wire from the soundbar to the rear speakers. The wireless receiver module does have to connect to an AC wall outlet via its detachable 6' power cord and to the rear speakers via two 13' proprietary speaker cables (included).

Two Rear Speakers: The two included Rear Speakers are powered by the Wireless Rear Module's built-in amplifier. Two 13' lengths of speaker cable are included to connect the Rear Speakers spring-clips terminals to the Wireless Rear Module's proprietary connectors. Each Rear Speaker houses a single 2.0" driver inside a bass reflex enclosure with a front-firing port. The Rear Speakers can simply be placed on a shelf, stand, or wall-mounted using the integrated key-hole slots on back of the speaker cabinets.

Q
Can this wireless controller be wired to two in wall rear speakers and not use the supplied speakers?
[ Dean  Jun 14, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
Yes I am doing that currently
[ Bart  Sep 03, 2019 ]
A
I would err on the side of caution. If you are talking about minimus-7 style speakers, they input 8 ohms. Samsung doesn't list the input ohms. I would run a fuse able link to each of the speaker wire (1 each side) to avoid damage to the unit and speakers. I have this set up on my high end speakers, as the manufacturer recommended doing so. Good luck.
