How to Hide Wires from the Soundbar to the TV

There are various methods of cable management when it comes to soundbars and televisions. Here are several options.

Zip Ties and Small Hooks

Using a combination of zip ties and small hooks is a great way to hide not only soundbar wires but any cables affiliated with the TV, including gaming consoles and stereo components. The zip ties are self-explanatory, as you just bundle up a bunch of wires in one, tie it, and move on. The small hooks are actually removable, so you don’t have to cause any permanent damage to your furniture, wall, or various items. These two are typically available in a cable management pack.

Cable Channels

Cable channels, also called cable raceways, are a great way to declutter any cables associated with a soundbar. As the names suggest, these accessories direct cables through a particular channel, bundling them together in the process. You can place them anywhere, and they work great as an add-on to another cable management solution.

Creative Decor

You can always route the cables behind and around a number of creative decor items, such as large photographs, vases, shelving units, and the like. You can’t notice what you can’t see, after all, so this acts as a good stopgap method to manage cables. Get creative with it and try different things until you find a setup that you appreciate.
