Infinity and Jbl Subwoofers Go Wireless

by Paul Strauss

Building out that ultimate home theater, but can’t deal with wires running all over the place? Sure, there are plenty of virtual surround systems which consolidate the front, rear and center satellite channels. But all of those really require a subwoofer if you want any meaningful low-end.

JBL and Infinity Wireless Subwoofers

Now Infinity and JBL (both part of the Harman International family) have announced subwoofers that can be placed anywhere in your room without running any speaker wires. Using a 2.4GHz transmitter/receiver pair, they grab their sound signals over the air. Supposedly, they offer “interference-free” operation, but there’s bound to be some noise on at least one of the four selectable RF channels if there’s any other electronic gadgets in the area.

Infinity’s PS212W model ($679 USD) is a 400-watt, 12-inch sub, while the JBL Cinema Sound CSS10W ($559 USD) has a smaller 10-inch driver and 300-watts of power. I’m always a bit skeptical about analog wireless audio and video devices, given their tendency to drop some information. You’d surely be better off with a hard-wired connection, but if you just have to be wireless, these might be worth a look.
