Can the sound bar be mounted directly to the bottom of an LG TV ? My TV is wall mounted with a "hinged" bracket and it does not appear that it would be easy to attach a the bar to it.
Asked by: JRBF

However, it does come with two brackets that you can use the supplied Wall Bracket Install Guide to align the brackets as close to the bottom of the TV as you can get it...^IFV
