I have a Marantz SR-7012 AVR and two SVS PB-4000s. I use two separate SVS SoundPath wireless kits to connect the subs to the AVR's 2 sub outs. When I calibrated with Audyssey, at the first listening position, it sends the test tones to each sub separately, and then a third time together. (My Audyssey version is XT-32). For the remaining 7 positions, it pings the subs together. My subs are in opposite diagonal corners of my large (24' x 24') square room, and my MLP sofa is in the center of the room, so I am sitting equidistant from both subs. Audyssey set the distances of the subs at 28 feet and 43 feet. I believe the difference is because of the different distances between the wireless transmitters and their respective receivers, not the distances of the subs themselves.
As long as your AVR can handle these longer distances, any latencies/delays that are introduced should be taken care of when you are calibrating. Wireless is not ideal, but in my case it is necessary if I want two subs. It's probably not a good idea to run one wired and one wireless, although I could do that in my room.
