Of course, a sound bar smaller than the recommended TV size is fine and often cheaper, but if you have a TV you might want a big sound to go with it. Sound bases have weight limits, so check this.
- Mounting methodWall mounting & standard alone Almost all sound bars are designed to sit on your TV stand, but some also allow you to mount them on a wall.

- Surround sound mixdown 2.0 or 2.1Yes Whether the sound bar is able to handle surround sound audio sources and turn them into stereo. If it doesn't, you'll just need to set your device to output in stereo.
