I currently have on order a setup of the following:;

One SC 3D Array
Two Supersat 3
One Forcefield 3 Subwoofer

Will be hooking it up in a small multiuse "man-cave" that had limited options

Questions:

What is a recommended speaker wall bracket for the Supersat 3 speakers for the surround area ??

What type and make of cabling is anyone using for the connections from receiver to each of the speakers??

Any other tips or advice about setup would be appreciated


I saw these last year at CES 2012 and it's been a long year waiting to make this order happen

Thanks to the Goldenear staff for a great time showing off this wonderful setup

Hi - nice setup! The SuperSat 3 can be mounted with two screws in the wall and utilizing their keyhole hanger slots. If you want them off the wall and swiveled, their are many aftermarket brackets available - just make sure they can handle the weight and they have a 1/4-20 stud option to connect to the insert in the back of the speaker. I'll let others suggest cable brands - we just recommend appropriate gauge wire from a speaker wire company (not lamp cord). Other tips - set crossovers as per the owners manual suggestions, locate sub as close to the soundbar as possible, give the system 40-50 hours of playing time before tweaking and final adjustments and critical listening.

Enjoy!

Hi, I'm also looking at the same setup. So can you recommend appropriate gauge wire ?

Depends on the distances run, but generally anything over 16 gauge that is speaker wire (not lamp cord) will be fine.
