Ohio-based speaker and subwoofer powerhouse, SVS, has today announced a SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter for subwoofers, powered speakers, amplifiers, TVs and streaming media consoles. The new SVS SoundPath accessory sends an LFE or a full-range audio signal at 16-bit/48KHz up to 65 feet, making it possible to experience immersive sound in a home theater or anywhere in the house with fewer cables and wires.

Subwoofer placement issues and cable clutter could be a ‘thing of  the past’ with the SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter, says SVS. Customers need only to connect the transmitter to an AV receiver, TV audio output or other audio source via RCA interconnect, then connect the receiver to a subwoofer, powered speaker or loudspeaker amplifier, pair the two devices, and the SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter sends a CD-quality 16-bit/48KHz signal with no cables or wires required. Up to three adapters can be paired to create a multi-room distributed audio system.

With subwoofers often being the largest component in any audio or home theater system, the SVS SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter should expand subwoofer placement options and decrease cable clutter without sacrificing performance. Because the adapter’s rated frequency response for transmission is 6 Hz to 22,000 Hz +/-1 dB, it also adds wireless connectivity to a stereo speaker zone and home theater surround sound applications with ultra-low latency (<25.5 milliseconds) within the 2.4GHz frequency band.

“SVS engineered the best performing wireless subwoofer adapter available and then made it better by designing it to pass a pristine and accurate full-range audio signal for the benefit of speaker owners,” said Gary Yacoubian, SVS President and CEO. “The SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter reduces subwoofer cable clutter without sacrificing performance better than any solution available, but it also unlocks wireless connectivity for a stereo zone, powered surround sound speakers and amplifiers, and solves placement and aesthetic issues.”

The SVS SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter Kit is available now for $89.99.

I’ll be very interested to hear testimonials from those who live in WiFi congested areas. When I add another sub to the living room it will need to be wireless. But I live in a very urban dense area with a lot of college students and young professionals, all of whom have tons of WiFi hotspots and devices. I did some research on similar devices amazon was selling and saw that they were susceptible to dropouts and interference from heavy WiFi areas.

Actually...now that I have a spare AV receiver...I'm contemplating buying this to test if I can add the rear atmos speakers which I didn't want to before because I didn't want to run more wires under the living room carpet (which was a b#@ch to thread the first time I did it many years ago).

Carlo,

Generally speaking the most important thing to find out is what frequency it is using. WiFi uses 2.4 and 5.0GHz. I've reached out to our contact at SVS to find out what spectrum is being used.

It looks like 2.4GHz.
