    If it is, what to buy and where?
    Current setup is:
    JBL 4312 L/R
    JBL 4410 R's
    2 DCM 07's center
    My new house is almost impossible to wire rears without some serious work.
    Thanks,
    Meaux

    It possible but I haven't heard any current wireless speakers that I would want to have in my system. They have too much inherent noise with them.
    Can you run any kind of speaker wire such as the flat wire that can be mudded and painted over?

    Heck, I was trying to get out of doin alot of work to a new house, the problem is the room is too big and it has 2 colums on 1 side and a french door on the other, and it's all out in the open. What a drag. The ole lady just had to have this wierd room. I guess I could put the video monitor between the colums but then I'd have to hide the rear of the set and then I'd still have to "wireless" the sat. cable.
    Shucks, the thing sounds like crap with the rears under the L/R.

    I've actually seen people run Advent wireless speakers as their rears. The transmitter included with them have RCA L/R inputs, so they just run audio cables from the pre-outs on their receiver into the transmitter. It works, but it doesn't sound near as good as hard-wired rears. Not only is there too much signal noise, but also very limited bandwidth due to the nature of an RF signal.
