Hello everyone,

My TV just died. I'm also about to start remodeling my apartment and want to switch to a ceiling-mounted projector. I have a big floor-to-ceiling window and a big black-out blind that's normally rolled-up, which I could use as a screen.

Here is my dilemma: I own a Bose CineMate series II (https://www.bose.com/en_us/support/products/2_speaker_home_theater_support/cinemate_series2.html) that sounds great and I would like to use it with the projector. Because the screen is in front of a window, I'd have to mount the speakers in the ceiling next to the top of the roller. The subwoofer would go nearby down in the floor.

Is there a way to turn my speakers wireless (wi-fi, not bluetooth) and connect them to my apple TV / projector?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

George,

Unfortunately there is no such thing as a truly wireless speaker - as they need power somehow, whether from a speaker wire or a wall outlet.

Is running speaker wire to these too difficult? You could probably run it under the baseboards and then up to the speakers.

Hi Dave,

Thanks a lot for the response.
Running a cable for power is not an issue as I have a power outlet nearby.
It's the sound transmission what I need to sort out, as I want to avoid running a huge HDMI across the room...

George,

Assuming these are just little cube speakers, all you need to run to them is 18ga wire - which is very small indeed, at only 1mm wide per wire.

If that's not going to work, the cheapest wireless speaker conversion kit I am aware of is this one: http://****/2zyFQUV
