Wireless Home Theater Speakers – Why You Should Use Wireless Speakers

One of the biggest problems that most consumers have to deal with in setting up their home theater system is the wires that are used to connect their speakers. Sometimes the wires are not long enough, sometimes they are not powerful enough, sometimes it’s more of a nightmare to maneuver them around your room than it is to actually mount all of your speakers. Fortunately, many manufacturers have recognized this hurdle and have come up with wireless home theater speakers to solve this problem.

However, don’t let the term “wireless” fool you. For a speaker to function, it needs two types of signals. First, the speaker needs to have access to the music in the form of electrical impulses (the audio signal). Second, the speaker needs physical connection to an amplifier to actually produce the sound (either powered by battery or AC power).

In a basic wireless speakers setup, a transmitter is physically connected to preamp outputs on a receiver. This transmitter then sends sound to a speaker that has a built-in receiver. However, in order to produce the audio signal that is wirelessly transmitted, the speaker needs additional power.

This means that the speaker still has to be physically attached to an amplifier and a power source. In other words, the term does not mean ‘wireless’, but it just means ‘less wires’.

Wireless speakers are designed to give you the convenient movie theater sound experience without all of the hassle. Not only do these types of speakers can make your room look much better and clean, but they are more affordable too.

This new technology makes wireless home theater speakers surprisingly cheaper than wired counterparts while still offering amazing sound quality. The only difference in sound between wired and wireless speaker is that the high end speaker systems which are built with copper and gold in their connector cable tend to have a crisp sound quality, though it’s not enough of a difference that the average person will be aware of it.

Some wireless speakers only work with surround sound system of same brands. So, make sure to check it out before buying. Wireless may interfere or be interfered by Wi-Fi and other wireless equipments. In this case, you could change the Wi-Fi channels to reduce the interference or channel conflicts.
