Overview

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.

  • 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

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 - 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.

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 ]
The SWA-8500S wireless surround speakers are designed specifically for for the Samsung HW-M450, HW-M4500, and HW-M550 sound bar models.

Yes I believe it is. I have a HW-550 and it works fine with the SWA-8500S surround speakers. It should work and the documentation says it does.[ JOHN  May 26, 2017 ]
