For normal speakers...there is a fair amount of fidelity loss when you hook up a wireless kit to them, but I do not think there is the same kind of loss for a subwoolfer since it is powered?

Is that true? False? Can I go wireless without reducing my sound fidelity with a subwoofer?

All wireless speakers are powered, so from that standpoint it's false. It's easier to get a good result with a wireless sub, since the bandwidth doesn't extend very high.

Probably showing my ignorance again...but I thought because the wireless bandwidth was limited...you don't get a full sound range via wireles...it gets truncated somewhat? Thus the fidelity loss?

Just wanted to make sure subs dont have the same problem.. Unless this is all just in my head and I can go ahead and do subs or speakers or anything else i need without worring about it?

Wireless might have noise issues in the high frequencies with full range speakers. Subs don't work in the high frequencies so they can't have high frequency noise.
