A subwoofer is a piece of equipment that would definitely benefit from wireless technologies !!

What is the best transmitter/receiver system for subs ??

I found this this Soundcast SOU-SCK510... is there anything else on the market to compare ?

http://www.amazon.com/Soundcast-SOU-.../dp/B001UE8J4E

I'm about to order this...

Thanks in advance

I guess you never heard of the ULS-15 from HSU. It has been on the market since 2007.

You also can get wireless transmitters from OutlawAudio or from AudioEngine

I don't want to purchase a new subwoofer... Need an efficient wireless adaptor to add on to existing sub.

With the least amount of latency of course

Any of the wireless speaker connections should work fine for your subwoofer. AudioEngine is the brand mentioned the most. You can also get RocketFish at Best Buy.

I understand you were not looking to buy a new one. I was just commenting on your opening statement that "they should make subwoofers wireless" and I was pointing out the fact that there are models available since 2007.

Both links I gave you are good wireless transmitters for subwoofers. If Outlaw sells them on their site to pair them up with the subwoofers that they sell, should they not be what you are looking for?

I thought about going wireless, but it seems that the Outlaw solution at least does not transmit anything below 20hz.

As I do a lot of HT listening that' s an absolute deal killer for me.

Just something to keep in mind when looking at these wireless solutions.

The stated FR is just the standard 20Hz to 20kHz used on most AV equipment but it will transmit below that.

Is there any test data to support this statement, or is this just your opinion ?
