I am not yet decided on a playbar or playbase with which to begin my Sonos system. My TV is located in a sort of cavity set back in the wall and the playbar would go beneath it, thus blocking the drivers at either end of the sound bar. Sonos recommends leaving a space of 30cm to either end of the device.
Does anyone have experience of how much the sound suffers when the playbar is positioned like this? I have no idea what kind of drivers are located at the ends so would it impede the bass or the surround-sound effect?
The playbase on the other hand is very unattractive, so big it would not fit properly above the media cabinet and the TV is wall mounted on an arm. But if it would sound better and save me needing to buy the woofer I might go for it.
