LG 2.0 Channel Soundbar Wireless Rear Speaker Kit is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 161.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from SPK8-S rear speakers bass management flaw [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] LG soundbar and SPK8-S rear speakers bass management flaw The sound bar not realize bass management to SPK8-S rear channels . It's simple to test it, run Dolby Atmos test tones (7.1.2) and for every sound bar channel the subwoofer make some bass (the bass management ), for the rear channels (SPK8-S channels) sub is mute, no bass management. I repeat the test using 7.1 Dolby Surround test tones and the results are the same. This is a MAJOR flaw in LG's sound bars because SPK8-S rear channels has no deep bass at all. Please LG fix this behavior. Sorry for my poor English (not my principal language)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs a better setup guide but good once working We are enjoying some pretty cool sound but it took some trial and error. First, you have to make sure the receiver has no interference to the sound bar or you get no sound or sound that cuts in and out. Second, download the LGWIFI-speaker app which allows you to increase or change the volume. I’m not sure why this isn’t part of the setup instructions. Third, you have to use the sound bar remote to turn on surround sound or you won’t get sound again. I don’t know why these steps aren’t in a quick start guide. Once everything is working they sound good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sounds great-but not truly “wireless” [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this “wireless” rear speaker expansion kit after purchasing my new LG OLED tv and SL6 sound bar kit. It is wireless from sound bar but now I have to figure out what to do with the speaker wires that run from the wireless receiver in my open floor plan. Sound is great- but this should not be considered wireless as stated on the box. Considering returning them as it’s very frustrating when you are sold one thing and get home to open box to find its not what I thought or was told I was purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got these recently to go with my LG-SK9Y Soundbar. I’m really glad I got these as they provide that extra dimension in the back ground. The soundbar by itself did a good job but adding these to the entire system (including the LG 55” 55SJ8000 HDTV) gives you that 360 feeling. Set up was really simple, plug and play pretty much. My soundbar synced right away. To really appreciate the 7.1.2 Atmos you’ll need a Dolby Atmos source. I managed to download some Dolby clips off the internet and played them through my HDTV via the USB port. I couldn’t believe the realism it provided. Crisp and distinct sounds in all directions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completed sound system!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased these add-on speakers to complete the sound from my SK9Y LG sound bar. Setup was extremely easy, practically plug and play! I say this as a visually impaired person. I was able to connect the wires to the speakers and the remote receiver and plugged it into the outlet with immediate connection. With a couple of clicks on the sound bar remote, voila full surround sound in our family room! I chose to mount the speakers on stands to put them at the same height off the floor. Very pleased with this economical addition!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Took some work, sound just OK [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought these yesterday, along with an LG Sound Bar, and it took some work to get consistent performance from the rear wireless speakers. Luckily they include quite a bit of speaker wire so I could pull this off. Had to position the sub and wireless receiver within 5 feet of the sound bar. No reception issues now. However, the bass is REALLY weak. Subwoofer and bass adjusted all the way up, still just mediocre at best. Rear wireless doesn’t have any bass to help it out either. Happy, but not thrilled with the setup.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Always cut out!! I bought this a few weeks ago and the sound bar and subwoofer sound great but the wireless speakers they cut out always especially during movies. What can I do to remedy this problem?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great companion to my LG soundbar [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought these to supplement my LG SN9YG soundbar which is paired with my LG OLDE77 TV. They are wireless and pair easily with the soundbar. They sound great and take up little room. i have them mounted on small corner shelves. Only comments would be if they could pair with the receiver module rather than hardwire that would eliminate all wiring in the back of the room and i would like a little more volume in them however that i believe is a limitation of the SN9YG only having a max gain of +6dB on the rear channels which is not sufficient in some surround sound situations.

Questions & Answers

What wall mount is compatible with these?

Asked by: Crispyy
LG does not manufacture a specific wall mount or wall bracket for the LG SPK8-S 2.0 Channel Sound Bar Wireless Rear Speaker Kit, but retailers like Best Buy and online retailers like Amazon do have wall mounts/brackets that can be used. You can use the width and depth dimensions for the rear speakers and for the wireless receiver and the weights for them that are listed on the specifications for the kit on its product detail page on our site to find a suitable wall mount that you can use...^Ivan

I have the SPK8-S enabled to the soundbar SN6Y. I want to buy LG SP9YA 5.1.2, can I enable the SPK8-S to the new soundbar? If I keep both soundbars in different rooms that are not far, can the soundbars get confused if they work at the same time?

Asked by: MatiasK
You can only pair the wireless receiver for the LG SPK8-S 2.0 Channel Sound Bar Wireless Rear Speaker Kit with either the LG SN6Y 3.1 Channel High Res Audio Sound Bar with DTS Virtual:X or with the LG SP9YA 5.1.2 Channel Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos® & works with Google Assistant and Alexa, but not with both at the same time. If an LG SPK8-S 2.0 Channel Sound Bar Wireless Rear Speaker Kit is connected to your SN6Y and another is connected to the SP9YA and they are in different rooms, they will not interfere with one another since the SPK8-S does not support multi-pairing. IT will only connect with one Soundbar at a time...^Ivan

Hi, Do these work with the new 2021 SP70Y Sound Bar? And reading the past reviews... do they cut out every so often? How much are the wall brackets? Thank you

Asked by: Drew
Thanks for your question Drew. Yes, they will work with the SP70Y. In terms of cut out, there is potential for your modem router, or excessive Bluetooth signal traffic to interfere with the signal. We recommend discussing with your local store and they can recommend some options, and assist with pricing on wall brackets.

So I have bought the lg sound bar along with the wireless surround sound kit. I notice the surround sound speakers cut in and out. Not sure if it's due to the wiring or if I have my set up too close to my wifi set up.

Asked by: Illmatic23
You definitely will need to check the wiring for the LG SPK8-S 2.0 Channel Sound Bar Wireless Rear Speaker Kit is connected to make sure that the rear speakers are securely and firmly attached to the receiver. Loose wiring can cause the speakers to cut in and out. If the SPK8-S is too close to your router, it could be causing some interference so you will need to move the speakers away. Also check for other devices like a wireless phone, microwave oven or even electrical conduits in your walls that may be interfering...Ivan

How far can the SPK8-S wireless receiver be placed from the SN10YG soundbar. I have a spot which is 12 feet away from the soundbar. Is it fine?

Asked by: RaghavK
The receiver for the LG SPK8-S 2.0 Channel Sound Bar Wireless Rear Speaker Kit pairs to the LG SN10YG 5.1.2 Channel High Res Audio Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos® and Google Assistant Built-In or any other compatible LG Soundbar via Bluetooth and Bluetooth has a range of approximately 30 feet, however, maximum communication range will vary depending on obstacles (person, metal, wall, etc.) or electromagnetic environment, so your home environment and what you have in the room where the soundbar and the rear speaker kit are installed will determine the maximum distance you can place them apart...^Ivan
