These can be positioned anywhere in your room. There is also a cable connection at its back side as well as you can also mount them on the wall but for that you have to buy the brackets for mounting them separately by yourself from the market.
This Vizio V51-H6 soundbar is decently built. The quality is unbelievable as it is built with the high quality solid plastic. The design is well planned and deliberate. But the fabric used in it is prone to torn. It can collect dust over it very easily and can be torn out easily.

Performance of Vizio V51-H6 soundbar
It is a 5.1CH configuration setup. This system comes with a wireless subwoofer and two satellite speakers. It produces a balanced sound with a slight V shaped representation. It also offers brilliant stereo frequency response because of its flexible configuration.
Subwoofer adds necessary boom to the sound to make it more relaxed to your ears. This is good for large rooms and crowded places. There is negligible distortion even at higher volumes because of stereo dynamics. But sorry to say that its surround sound experience is not too good as the further harp on bass compose the output grubby. Might be this Vizio V51-H6 soundbar is best for games, movie, direct and music and dialogue enhancement is found.
This Vizio V51-H6 soundbar is a knock for cash product. Excluding an underwhelming surround sound performance we are enormously in fear of what they have created. But its overall performance is good. It is having a reasonable price and also contains a wireless subwoofer along with satellite speakers in it. Surround sound is also experienced in it. In a nut shell it is a good version of the Vizio for most of the lovers of sound.
