Setting up wireless surround with Polk Omni app

How do I set up wireless surround sound using the Polk Omni app?

1 - The very first thing you want to do is set up each Play-Fi enabled speaker on your wireless network and install any updates that are mentioned during setup. Make sure to name each speaker differently so they are easy to identify later on.


2 - DO NOT install any Polk Omni Utility app updates until AFTER the Polk Omni app has updated the speakers on your network. This ensures proper system funtion.


3 - Once the updates are installed, select the the settings wheel on the Polk Omni app and then select "Surround Sound".


4 - In the bottom right corner of the screen, click the "+" button to create a new "Surround Sound System".


5 - The guided app will take you through the full setup by selecting "Next".


Note: This process is the same for all three speaker placements but the Front posotion must be a compatible Play-Fi sound bar (ex. SB1 Plus). If no compatible sound bars are found, you will not be able to continue.


6 - Now select "Set Front.". The app will automatically recognize all compatible sound bars.


7 - Choose the sound bar that you want to set up followed by setting the distance of the sound bar from your listening position (to the closest foot).


8 - Select "Next" to continue.


9 - Select "Set Surround Left" to choose the left speaker, as well as setting the distance of the speaker to your listening position (to the closest foot).


10 - Select "Next" to continue.


11 - Select "Set Surround Right" to choose the right speaker, as well as setting the distance of the speaker to your listening position (to the closest foot).


12 - Select "Next" to continue.


13 - Once you have selected all three speakers, select "Done" on the bottom of the Surround Set-Up page. The Polk Omni app will now set up your wireless surround sound system.


14 - Once your wireless surround sound system is set up and you can select "Done."


Note: Be patient. This process can take some time.
