How close to the ceiling can I mount the HDL300 speaker bar?

The HDL300 system's microphone and speaker bar can be installed close to a ceiling. However, when installing the microphone and speaker bar high up, keep in mind the following considerations:

  • Install the microphone and speaker bar close to the speakers in the room

So long as the microphone and speaker bar isn't installed lower than the recommended minimum height of 7.1ˈ (2.2 m), it's best to install the microphone and speaker bar close to the people in the room.

  • Install the microphone and speaker bar away from vents and fans

Noise sources, including HVAC vents and fans, can interfere with the audio pickup of the HDL300 system. Make sure your microphone and speaker bar is not installed near any noise sources on your ceiling.

  • Avoid reflective surfaces

When installing an HDL300 system, it's important to keep in mind how the surfaces around it will absorb or reflect sound. When you install your microphone and speaker bar close to the ceiling, keep in mind how the wall and the ceiling surfaces will affect the audio.
