If you are going to run a sound bar it only has speakers in the front by the TV,
how about not installing the rear speakers of a system like you have just using smaller speakers.
I have the bookshelf Polk Audio front left and right and a dual of the same for the center with 6-1/2" speakers. I have 2 10" sub woofers.
I have a friend that went to the store and listened to several sound bars and he purchased the Polk Audio bar with the wireless subwoofer.
He really likes it. If you like the sound of what you have now I do not know if you will be satisfied with a sound bar.
I have to say that lots of the time my speakers are not even on. When you are watching a lot of stuff like the stock market, etc. who cares.
I have the optical cable ran to my Yamaha and Component cables run to the TV including the red and white audio cables.
I set up 2 remotes. One to operate the DTV and the Yamaha and the other for the
DTV and the TV speakers.
