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
  • T Series: HW-T450, HW-T550, HW-T650

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
my question is can you use a Yamaha receiver with Samsung speakers and surround sound system?
[ Randy  Mar 11, 2021 ]
2 answers
A
The satellite speakers connect to the receiver via regular speaker wire and spring clips. It should be compatible with any speakers that are within the correct power range.
[ Jon-Paul  Mar 11, 2021 ]
A
No clue
[ Michael  Mar 11, 2021 ]
Q
Can I set the receiver in the back with the speakers or does it have to be wired into the soundbar?
[ Marty  Feb 07, 2021 ]
7 answers
A
yes, it does not need to be wired to soundbar
[ JASON  Feb 12, 2021 ]
A
It is a wireless unit with wires only to the two surround speakers, so it does not need to be wired into the soundbar. Setup is simple too, and for small speakers, they sound really good.
[ Matthew  Feb 08, 2021 ]
A
Reciever will connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to the soundbar similar to the subwoofer that came with soundbar. Depending on the soundbar model, there are some extra steps.. I googled it and found I had to press and hold a certain button on remote for 5 seconds to make it work. You'll have to verify method depending on soundbar model. I have 2 Samsung soundbars... different models... and was able to connect to both with same set of rear speakers but with slightly different directions.
[ Christopher  Feb 07, 2021 ]
A
Yes, it has to be wired into the soundbar.
[ RADAMES  Feb 07, 2021 ]
A
The speakers need to be connected to the receiver. The receiver connects wirelessly to the sound bar. I do not recommend this product. The sound quality is very poor.
[ John  Feb 07, 2021 ]
A
The speakers are wired directly in the receiver, not in the soundbar.
[ Julio Victor  Feb 07, 2021 ]
A
REciever has to be connected to the sound bar
[ RAY  Feb 07, 2021 ]
Q
Will this system work with the Samsung T5 surround system?
[ Matt  Jan 31, 2021 ]
1 answer
A
I bought the SAW 8500S and the worked well and put out decent volume and great sound quality. After 30 days or so static started coming through the speakers and sound bar. I returned the speakers and sound bar to Crutchfield's. I also had trouble syncing sound to speakers lips. I never really got the issue resolved to my satisfaction despite using all the settings Samsung recommended.

I have a 55Q7FN TV and they work great. I would think these would work with your TV also.
[ Scott  Dec 03, 2020 ]
A
There are two Rear Speaker Kits available for purchase: SWA-8500S or SWA-9000S , i would go with the latest model swa-9000s which is the perfect match for your bar.

A
the Samsung SWA-8500S Has two speakers
[ Michael  Oct 11, 2020 ]
A
Yes. Some reviews state these are not loud; you can turn up the rear volume on the sound bar and ther are plenty loud. When company is over, they constantly look at the back of the room to see where the sound is coming from!
[ Chuck  Oct 11, 2020 ]
Q
We have an older Samsung sound at 2014. We were told to buy a dongle. What does that look like and what is it called?
[ S  Oct 08, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
A dongle is a small connective USB that looks almost like a fuse that goes into a car. The dongle is what allows the sound bar connect to the other speakers.

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 ]
4 answers
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.
[ Jess  Dec 18, 2019 ]  Staff

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 ]

Does the soundbar's remote control allow you to adjust the volume of the surround speakers? I have a Samsung HW-Q60R soundbar?

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 ]

A
I do not think the sound bars are able to connect to 2 rear speaker sets at a time.
[ Raymond  Dec 03, 2020 ]
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.
