I used an Outlaw OWA-4 for one sub. http://outlawaudio.com/products/OAW4.html It's more expensive, but it has a much lower latency than the Dayton unit, roughly 10ms vs 32 ms.
I usually recommend the Outlaw or the SVS wireless - out of curiousity where did you get the 10ms delay spec for the Outlaw? I was never able to find any delay spec except for "extremely low latency or No Delays" although if accurate then I would pay the extra $10 and get the Outlaw over the SVS which lists 25ms delay on it specs, as the Outlaw would also have better line of sight range and SNR - but the SVS does have 5yr warranty, cleaner look with internal antennas and $10 less vs only 2yr warranty for Outlaw.

10ms spec? I dimly recall it from a review, but not from where.

When Audyssey XT32/SubEq measured the "distance" to the sub, I recall that it added 10 feet (3m) or so to the physical distance. Given the speed of sound, one millisecond roughly equals one foot (0.3m). I don't recall the precise number, but I think that it was much less than 25 or 32 feet.

The main downside to the OWA-4 is that it uses the 2.4 GHz band. It has two DIP switches that allow the choice among 4 channels. I had to play with the channels a little; I think that I was having an interference issue. I have a dual band wireless router, 2.4 and 5 GHz. I don't use Bluetooth, but that can interfere too. (I used to have a problem using a Bluettoth keyboard with am Amazon Fire tablet. Every time I used the keyboard, the tablet would drop its 2.4 GHz WiFi connection.)

Whether other wireless adapters avoid that issue, I don't know.

I've gone back to wired connections on the subs. The OWA-4 was to test a variety of positions for the subs, none of which were greatly superior.

The older Outlaw OWA3 has a 10ms spec. The current OWA4 seems to be a bit longer but Outlaw doesn't publish it. In my comparisons to wired I was seeing a 15-17ms delay.
