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.

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.

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Perfect for my application [ Jon  Jan 21, 2020 ]
A
because i have soundbar Q6CR. [ NOEL CEDENO  Jan 09, 2020 ]
A
Sound quality! I heard it from Costco which is the same model except that it has a better feature than the one being sold at Costco. The sound quality is superb. There is a huge difference in sound quality from the curved Samsung Soundbar I bought from Crutchfield 8 years ago, which had no bass with the bass unit that came with the Soundbar for that curved Soundbar. I wound up returning that one I purchased 8 years ago. [ Richard  Nov 08, 2019 ]

Q
Hi. On the soundbar HW-Q6CR, it is recommended that for rear speakers to get the SWA-8500S. But every where I've read this soundbar is not listed as compatible. Why is this? But yet it is recommended in the manual.
[ Faith  Dec 02, 2019 ]

A
I don't have a HW-Q6CR
[ joseph  Dec 19, 2019 ]
A
From what I se, this has the sub woofer on your HW-Q6 cr unit. I would contact Samsung customer service and speak with a technician. Or, try out the SWA-8500s unit. You can always return the rear speakers where ever you purchased them. I have the HW-N400 sound bar without the sub who offer. It works great. Best of luck.
[ Skooge1  Dec 18, 2019 ]
A
Hi Faith, thank you for your question. We do not carry the Samsung HW-Q6CR sound bar unfortunately, but according to the information found online, as well as in the owners manual I was able to find on the HW-Q6CR, the SWA-8500S speakers are compatible. You would need to reach out to Samsung for any further information, since we are not carrying that particular model sound bar. But it does look as though these speakers are indeed compatible with your sound bar. Sorry we couldn't be of more help on this one, Faith.

I have the HW-R550 Sound Bar and i purchased the SWA-8500S. Its works beautifully with that combo so not sure about HW-W6CR
[ Michael  Dec 17, 2019 ]
Q
Does the soundbar's remote control allow you to adjust the volume of the surround speakers? I have a Samsung HW-Q60R soundbar?
[ alanh  Nov 23, 2019 ]

I do not know as these surround speakers would not work with the sound bar I purchased at Sam's Club.
[ Bob  Nov 24, 2019 ]
A
Yes, best I can tell they all are directly controlled by remote simultaneously when surround sound is active.
[ HAROLD  Nov 23, 2019 ]
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.
[ Skooge1  Jun 25, 2019 ]
A
No those come with 13' proprietary speaker connections. It will only work with the included Samsung speakers.

These wireless rear speaker add-on systems work with different model sound bars. They are not compatible with each other or with the same soundbar systems. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul

That's what I got it for. It sounds better than my dedicated surround system did ( it sounds awesome)
[ Kristopher  Dec 12, 2017 ]
Q
can you buy 2 of these and still be able to connect to the soundbar system? so in all you would have 4 rear speaker?
[ terrence  Aug 01, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I think it is possible, but I believe you would be very disappointed with the sound quality and volume. The speakers are very small, light, and they produce very little sound. I do not recommend them.
