What Are the Advantages of Wireless 5.1 Surround Sound?
There’s nothing like watching a movie or playing a video game in 5.1 Dolby or DTS surround sound. To enjoy true 5.1 surround sound, your speaker array should include right and left front speakers to handle music and sound effects, a center channel speaker for dialog, two left and right rear speakers for surround effects and, of course, a subwoofer for bass. Connecting the front channel speakers is typically not a problem because in most home theaters the front speakers are located near the receiver/amp. The rear speakers, however, are typically located behind the listeners and the subwoofer may need to be placed in a corner or other optimal location, depending on your room’s acoustics. This means running speaker cable either along the baseboards or snaking the cables within the wall or underneath the floor, which is not always possible especially for renters. An easier and often less expensive solution is to go wireless.
How Does the OSD Audio WRSK250 2.4GHz Wireless Speaker and Subwoofer Kit Work?
The WRSK250’s transmitter connects to your home theater amp/receiver with RCA cables and plugs into a standard electrical outlet. The WRSK250’s receiver connects to the surround speakers via speaker cables (included) and to the powered subwoofer via RCA subwoofer cable (not included) and also plugs into a standard electrical outlet. The transmitter then sends the audio signal to the receiver over the air via the 2.4GHz frequency, the same reliable frequency used by cordless phones, routers and other wireless devices. Because most households have several other devices operating on the 2.4GHz frequency, the WRSK250 includes 34-selectable channels so you can dial in the most reliable and steady signal. While the 2.4GHz frequency works best line of sight, it’s not critical so you can hide the receiver/transmitter behind a sofa, inside a cabinet or even in another room. Keep in mind that while this is a wireless solution for transmitting an audio signal from a home theater system’s receiver/amp to the rear speakers and powered sub you still need to connect the speakers to the WRSK250 receiver via speaker cable.
