I've had one for about three weeks. Had to replace a Soundcast Subcast. It kept dropping the signal and when it would the sub would make a loud noise. So far the Sub-Link has worked flawlessly. No interference or drop-outs and I think it introduces less delay than the subcast did. It's a nice small unit and it comes with dual sided tape to mount it to the sub. I highly recommend.

I am considering this too as I will be adding 2 more subs to my current 5.2 system. No intention to pull a long cable to the back. I was told that it is important to have both receiver and sender units at line of sight for it to work effectively.

Bass, please. Shaken, not stirred.

My components are in a closet behind the screen and the subwoofer sits left of the screen. Its only about fifteen feet away but the signal does have to travel through the wall so it doesn't require true line of sight. At least not at the distance I'm using it for. I am interested in how it works with two receivers because at some point I want to add a second sub. I did some research prior to buying it and I can't remember where I found it, but I'm pretty sure you can use two receivers with one transmitter. I think I read that in the forum of the Dayton website. Would be interested to see if anybody has any experience with that.

To be fair to the Subcast system, it seemed to work well for about a year without any problems but once it started having the dropouts it was a huge nuisance and nothing I did to try to fix the problem helped. I'm much happier, so far, with this unit. Compared to the Sub-link, the Subcast units were larger, cost 3x as much, and its appearance was more interesting to my 11 month-old.

A single transmitter will work fine with dual receivers. I tested this unit prior to SVS listing it - and I agree it outperforms other wireless competition at higher prices. It links up quickly, stays linked, doesn't add noise, is quite immune to other sources of RFI like wi-fi and mobile phones, has acceptable latency, and it has a very wide bandwidth (F3 is 6 Hz!).

Mine was already paired and the lights are solid blue, no blinking. The instructions aren't real helpful. Maybe try searching Dayton forums. Sorry, I wish I knew more. If I find anything I'll post a link.

figured it out, apparently you need to have the modules close to each other to pair. Its a solid light now and working great so far. Thx
