Our take on the Samsung SWA-8500S

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. 

Product Highlights:

  • wireless surround speakers for the Samsung HW-M450, HW-M4500, and HW-M550 sound bars
  • left and right surround speakers each connect to the amplifier/receiver module via the included speaker wire
  • rear amplifier/receiver module connects wirelessly to the sound bar (plugs into an AC outlet for power)
    • range: 30 feet
  • compact design
  • delivers full home theater surround sound with compatible Samsung sound bars
    • not compatible with other sound bars
  • speaker cables and AC power cord included
  • amp/receiver dimensions: 2"W x 7-15/16"H x 5-1/4"D
  • speaker dimensions: 3"W x 5"H x 3"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • 2 Rear speakers (PS-KS-1)
  • Wireless module (SWA-8500S)
  • 5' AC power cord
  • Two 13' proprietary speaker cables
  • User Manual

Surround speakers.

Bob from Troy, VA on 6/3/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased sound bar from Sam's Club. Does not work even though web site said it would. I'm very disappointed.



Will not work

Kevin from Omaha, NE on 4/6/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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 are small but do the job for rear speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (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.


Cons: Does not work.

Too small for a large room. Not loud enough.

Anonymous from Melbourne Beach, FL on 11/14/2017

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'.

Hands-on research

Product Research


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 - HW-M360, HW-M369, HW-M450, HW-M460, HW-M4500, HWM-4501, HW-M4510, HW-M4511, HW-M550, and HW-M560 (all sold separately).

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.

That's what I got it for. It sounds better than my dedicated surround system did ( it sounds awesome) [ Kristopher  Dec 12, 2017 ]
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. [ James  Aug 01, 2017 ]
i did not try [ samson  Jun 20, 2018 ]
