12 Superb Ways to Hide Soundbar and TV Wires Without Wall Cutting.

For hiding the wires of your soundbar or TV there are multiple options for you. Like hiding behind a Tv, or under the carpet, use cord clips, cable management boxes, and other things to hide. But it all depends upon the length of the wires, the house ownership (whether it’s your own or rented), the structure of your room and wall, and of course your budget.

I will explain all the best possible ways here, you just have to read it carefully and then decide which method you are going to apply.

I will also assist you to make a decision easily by mentioning the requirements and conditions of each Way.

Take a notepad and start writing what you are looking for and either the following ways are compatible with your needs or not.


This is something that is necessary to do immediately after mounting them. If you will not do so, you may encounter a couple of problems.

Wire Cluttering

The cluttering of wires may cause electrical damage or damaging to wires.

It also looks shitty and gives a rough look to your room. A small baby or a child can get entangled in them or anything serious can happen.

Short Circuit

Wire’s cluttering and entangling for a long time can cause short circuits.

Many cases are reported in which the wires caught fire due to short circuits and serious damages happened.


From buying a soundbar to installing and mounting it, is a boring journey. Many things we have to consider in this journey.

Don’t worry I will make your journey a little bit easy by describing the best practical methods.

Important Note:- The Following mentioned ways can be used for TVs, soundbars, subwoofers, and home theater systems.

1. Wall Cutting – An Exceptional Case

This is the most difficult and hated way to hide the wires. But believe me, this is one of the best ways also.

People usually don’t like to damage their beautiful walls just for the sake of wires.

If you have a rented house then it’s impossible to damage the wall without the owner’s permission.

It costs high but is a permanent solution.

How to hide wires in the wall?

For this first of all, straight up your wires so there should be no bent in them.

Then apply a cut into your wall according to the length and width of the wire. The cut width should be double the width of the wires, so wires can’t be pressed.

Then place the wires in the cutting section and then cover it with cement or whatever material your walls are made up of.

Pro Tip:- If you are not an expert, please concern yourself with an expert otherwise your wall or wires would be damaged.

I know you are not going to apply this. Because this is the most unlike method ever. Don’t worry, the following methods can be used without cutting into a wall.

2. Use Cable Channels

This is one of the most affordable, common, and easiest ways to conceal your wires.

The cable channels are made up of plastic, just like plastic pipes but in a rectangular shape. These can easily be installed on the walls.

You just need channel holders (hooks) or screws to fit them.

3. Use Zip Ties and Hooks – Special For TV

This is some kind of “Tie Method” more than hide one.

In this, you just need some zip ties and hooks. The quantity depends on the number of wires you have.

This is cheaper than cable channels.

This I will say is the simplest way to handle your wires.

Cord clips are small rounded clips (may be of different shapes) that clip or lock the wires against the wall.

The price of 30 clips is about $15.

How to use it?

Pro Tip:- Before applying this method, carefully measure the length and width of the wires and purchase the cord clips accordingly.

How to use it?

This is also known as a cable management box. This is made up of wood and gives the proper facility to hide any type of cable completely.

No need for any hook, hanger, or clips. No wall damage.

This gives a spacious area for holding your wires. These are also available in many sizes, designs, shapes, and colors according to your need.

What We Like

  • Pets and children can’t directly access the wires.
  • It is made up of hard material, so it has a long life.
  • You can also use it for other purposes, like putting your soundbar or remote on it.

What We Don’t Like

  • It is a little bit expensive, but it justifies its costs because of its many features.

8. Hide cables behind the TV

This is the unofficial but cheap way. Your wires will be hidden behind your tv and none can see them while watching TV.

If you have some kind of furniture, statue, box, or any other huge standing object near your TV or soundbar, you can wrap the wires around them in a most professional way.

It will be just like a decoration. You can use transparent tape (magic tape) to make them stick. This is the most final method, if all the other methods are not working for you or you haven’t enough budget for them then you should go for it.

10. Use TV Cable Trunk

These trunks come with pre-installed electric boards. They have a cabinet for not only placing TV but subwoofers and soundbars.

All the wires of these devices can easily be managed within the trunk.

What We Like

  • It has vast space for placing TV and other devices and managing wires.
  • It is the safest way to hide the wires.

What We Don’t Like

  • If you already have a TV cabinet then you shouldn’t go for it. Try other methods.

11. Use Trims of Your Rooms

Trims are called ridges or rise-up lines in your rooms. These can act as wire-holding places.

How to do this?

Take the wires and simply place them on the ridges.

Then you can stick them with magic tape or cord clips.

What We Like

  • It is a free way to hide your wires.
  • It looks decent.

What We Don’t Like

  • Wires can slip from the ridges in case of putting off the tape and clips.

12. Hide Wires Under the Carpet

Every room has a carpet. Carpets can not only hide your surface but also wires. Run the wires beneath your carpet from electric boards to the Soundbar or TVs. You don’t need any kind of clips or tape to stick them.

What We Like

  • This costs zero.
  • It is the easiest way to hide wires without any equipment.

What We Don’t Like

  • No such con detected.

The best alternative for wired devices is wireless devices.

Wireless devices are free from the tension of managing wires and other wire-related issues. Wireless devices can also give a more superb experience than wired ones because of modern technologies.

If you can’t purchase a wireless speaker, you can turn your wired one into wireless. Wireless devices have better options for calibrations and handling.

If you have the budget, I will suggest you move towards wireless soundbars.


If you want to know my personal opinion, I would vote for “Cable Management Box”. This is the proper and best way to completely hide your wires.

It gives enough space for wires.

All the other methods are also good. It depends upon your need, budget, the room structure, and the wires you are using.

There are many wires which require changing after a while, so they shouldn’t be hidden by irreversible methods.

The above-mentioned methods vary from free to low and moderate budget. You can pick any of them according to your pocket.


What is the best way to conceal the Sonos arc cables?

I think a cable management box or TV cabinet is the best option. You can try the other options also. But these two are the best.

Should I Change the Cord Clips after a while?

No, these have a stability of more than 10 years. So don’t need to worry about it.

What if I don’t hide my wires?

It is not a big deal. If you don’t want to be, do not do. But I will suggest you conceal the wires especially if you have children and pets in your homes.

The hiding wires can also give a decent look to the rooms.

Is the Wire size important for subwoofers?

Yes definitely, the wire size impacts the impedance of the current. You should choose a wire of compatible gauge.
