Hi, I am new to AVSforum and could use some help with a setup.

I have installed several LCD TV's in our schools weight room. I am using a IOGear Wireless HDKit to transmit the signals from the source (a computer) to the LCD's-http://www.iogear.com/product/GW3DHDKIT/ Everything works great-now I want to integrate better options for sound than what the TV's emit, without adding wires to the TV or source.

I have access to a system I think should work out well.

The system consists of a Williams Sound Mod 232 Modulator, one or several WIR TX9 Emitters, and several RX 12-4 Wireless Receivers. Page 8 of this document shows the system:


I would install the emitter (or multiple emitters) above the TV's, the Mod 232 can be hidden behind a TV.

What is the best way to connect the LCD's to the Mod 232? Do I want to use both Channel A & B for stereo mode. Would unbalanced RCA out of the TV to 1/4" TRS in to the Mod 232 be the best option? Would this cable work: http://www.fullcompass.com/product/411625.html?utm_source=googleps&utm_medium=shopping&utm_campaign=googleps&gclid=COKU6c6ih7QCFQmCQgodvicAKw

Also, how many Receivers can run off this system?

I assume you're trying to broadcast sound/music to people using the weight room (using headphones or equivalents)?

If that's the case, IMO you'll be better off with a low-power FM transmitter (one per source). Then folks can just bring / use their own FM radio/headphones to listen, and you don't have to worry about keeping track of equipment, damage, or cleaning it (ew!).

You'll see this sort of setup in many gyms / health clubs that have TVs positioned in front of the treadmills / cardio gear.
