Pairing LG Soundbar With Subwoofer (First-time setup)
If you’re getting both the Subwoofer for the Soundbar, don’t worry. The process is straightforward and will take less than five minutes. Once you have the Television, Soundbar, and Subwoofer, the next step is to connect them and get them running. Let’s take a look at how it can be done.
Connect the power cord of the main unit and the Wireless Subwoofer units to the wall power source. Turn on the central unit and then switch on the Wireless Subwoofer.
The LED light will continue to blink on the Subwoofer, which indicates that it’s in standby mode. When they turn on, both the Soundbar and Subwoofer will automatically connect.
When the Subwoofer is fully turned on, the Bluetooth feature automatically activates. It can only be automatically connected to the Soundbar by plugging the power cable. Once the Subwoofer has been successfully connected to its Soundbar, you’ll notice that the LED light stops blinking and glows continuously.
If they do not work for some reason, you can pair your LG soundbar to the wireless subwoofer manually. If the LED light does not stop linking, then it is possible that the wireless subwoofer has not connected to the Soundbar. Let’s now move on to the troubleshooting steps.
Manually Connecting The Soundbar To The Subwoofer
Manually connecting the main unit and the subwoofer can be more difficult as there are a few extra steps. Follow our step-by-step instructions, and you should be able to get it working in no time.
First, reduce the volume level. VOL MIN appears on a model with a full đisplay. A red led indicator will appear on the Soundbar if you have a different model.
The next step is to hold the Mute button on the remote control. Simply press and hold the power button on the remote control for about 3 seconds
You will now see a WL RESET message on your screen. A model that does not have a screen will show the red light, which will blink from volume minimum to continuously.
Look to the back of the Subwoofer, and you’ll see a pairing button. Press and hold pairing button down for at least 5 seconds. The LED light on your wireless Subwoofer blinks red and green alternating will switch to a permanent green light after a few seconds. Perfect!
Soundbar Not Pairing – Troubleshooting Issue
If you’re still having trouble connecting your Subwoofer to your Soundbar, I suggest that you refer to the troubleshooting guide. It should be easy.
- Make sure there are no obstacles between the main unit and the Subwoofer.
- Turn off any device using the same frequency that the Subwoofer or Soundbar, such as a microwave, medical equipment, or wireless LAN device.
- Unplug the power cord from the Soundbar or Subwoofer.
- Wait seconds until the led of the main unit is off when it stops blinking, then switch it back on.
Finally, the main soundbar unit and the wireless subwoofer unit will pair automatically this time. After the connection is completed, you will see a solid green light at the subwoofer.
Where Should I Place My Subwoofer?
You’ll need to know where your subwoofer should go if you just bought it. You don’t want your Subwoofer touching the wall. It’s best to keep it at least a few inches away from the wall.
The Subwoofer will bounce off the walls if you play sounds through it. A lot of people place their Subwoofer below their TV, either slightly to the left or right. However, you don’t have to place your wireless sub in this position.
A sub can also be placed in the corner of a room, just a few inches away from the wall. This will allow your sub to produce better sound quality and is a great way to get the most volume from your Subwoofer.
It is essential to keep the wireless subwoofer from too far away from your central unit. This is especially important if you are using a wireless sub. The close as possible the Subwoofer is to the central unit, the better the connection.
Although they shouldn’t be directly next to one another, keeping them at least a few feet apart is best. It’s also essential to ensure that there are not all the devices between them.
They use the 2.4GHz band for a wireless connection. They can be affected by any other devices using this band, such as a cordless phone or baby monitor.
You might want to try the sub at a few places in the room before you find the one that suits you best.

LG has made many improvements over the years with LG soundbars, but the biggest thing that the company did for this product was to put more power into the wireless subwoofer.
Their wireless subwoofer has more than enough oomph to fill your home theater with some incredible low frequencies.
It also comes with dual digital amplifiers, which means it should handle any noise at all without losing its sub-bass response. The only downside is that it may take up more room in your entertainment center because of its size.
