Hey guys.

Im looking into wiring my cousin's surround sound up but he doesn't want wires running round the room. Now i know the front 2 and the centre has to be wired to the amp and the rear speakers are connected to a transmitter which comes out the amp. Des the amp have to have a special socket in the back of it for the transmitter to plug into? Or does it just go into a normal aux audio socket.

Help will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

OK cool. Thanks for getting back to us. SO all i gotta do is try and find a transmitter that can connect to an amp via speaker sockets or pre-outs. Ill start looking. Anyone suggest anywhere that do transmitters and wireless speakers at reasonable prices?

firstly there is no such thing as wireless speakers. instead of simple 2 wire speaker cable. you end up having to run a dirty thick power cable or power source to them instead ! which will mean putting in power points near each speaker.


its a complete and utter fallacy anything such as a wireless speaker.


in my opinion stick to the conventional. its actually a lot simpler. discrete than any "wireless speakers"

Just google and you'll find different options ... you can find wireless audio systems that can use your existing speakers surround speakers or you can find a whole wireless speaker package that includes both the 2 speakers and the transmitter/receiver. All will likely run between $100 - $300 on average though.

Oh right. I see what your saying. Ill have to see if he's got any power points near the rear of his front room. If he hasn't then he'll have to stick with the traditional wired system.


Cheers guys for your help

For true wireless, how about something like a tesla coil, that not only provides power for the speakers, but the audio as well. A modulated tesla coil sort of.


I am sure there's a downside

I try not to ask too many questions - the answers might frighten me. In this case, I assumed the OP did not really mean 'amp', and is talking about an AVR, but I could be wrong.


In general, you can't hook wireless speakers to an amp, because it's outputs are speaker level outputs.

Downside? I doubt the rather large discharges from the coil would pose any undue fire hazard. Considering the benefits of no wires, I think its a tolerable risk
