If you want to create amazing surround-sound with plenty of pitch and depth then you need to hit every note and apart from having a great audio system at home or in your car you need to pair it with a state-of-the-art wireless subwoofer. This is because a subwoofer is built to get that deep, rich tone and will enhance your entire sound experience, giving plenty of bass where you need it, plus it won’t distort your music when you turn the volume up.
Today’s subwoofers are so advanced they no longer need to be wired up to an audio system, they can be accessed remotely through wireless technology.
Here’s my guide to purchasing a fantastic wireless subwoofer with my current top three, all available to buy from Amazon.com:
Kilpsch R110 SW/WA2 Bundle 10” Powered Wireless Subwoofer
This subwoofer gives a thrilling bassline with plenty of power and has a 200 watt all-digital amplifier for plenty of pulsing sound. You really get to enjoy your audio with this subwoofer and can use it for music, movies and games alike – literally “feeling” the sound with incredible acoustics too.
The wireless advantage means you can move it wherever you want in the room because it connects no matter what and when it switches on it has a great looking LED power indicator. It’s a superb piece of wireless subwoofer and for the price it needs to be because it’s a bit pricey, retailing for about $439. You can expect it to be a heavy piece of equipment so it’s not as portable as the ZiiSound that we covered below.
However, the price dictates a spectacular audio experience which I have to endorse (I can hear it 100 yards from my house!) and there are plenty of other features and benefits:
- 450 Watts
- Reliable and accurate sound reproduction
- Low frequency energy
- Handsome, sleek design
- No distortion
- Fast and easy wireless connection
Creative ZiSound DSx Wireless Subwoofer for ZiiSound Modular Speaker Systems
This is a cool piece of compact equipment which makes a real statement in your home with plenty of significant sounding audio and it’s very affordable. This wireless subwoofer needs to be used with your ZiiSoundD5x or D3x speaker system which restricts it, but if you have one of these already – using this subwoofer will further enhance the quality of your music. If you want to, you can use it with movies and games too. It’s designed in a cool modular shape and comes in black.
The audio experience is so good, if you close your eyes you can almost imagine you’re in a movie theatre! It connects using Bluetooth and connectivity is immediate – sometimes wireless audio can take a while to find Bluetooth but this is one links fast. As it’s wireless, it means you can take it anywhere in your home and enjoy whatever audio experience you want – up to a range of 30 metres. It’s so powerful you only need to use 50% of volume. Here are some more great benefits:
- SLAM technology for a real BOOM party experience (Symmetrically Loaded Acoustic Model)
- Weighs 10.2lb
- Modular shape
- Bluetooth technology
- Sound up to 30 metres from the box
- Connects to iPhone, iPod or tablet
- In order to operate it must link up with the other ZiiSound D products
- Solid low frequency bass
Amphony iFinity Audio Transmitter/Receiver for Wireless Subwoofers
This relatively inexpensive product is used especially to transmit to a subwoofer therefore activating surround speakers. With tremendous range, you can use it 200 feet away from where it’s situated (excellent for the outdoors although it is not a water proof subwoofer) it boasts fantastic connectivity for the price and no need for any cabling obviously. The other thing I like about the Amphony product is you can use it with any brand subwoofer and powered speakers so you don’t need to stay loyal to your audio system, it syncs beautifully.
It’s also compact and discreet so doesn’t take up too much space, often space is limited with big audio systems so this is a bonus. Sound is enhanced no end and gives spectacular bass, thump and audio sharpness with no distortion. You need two of these sets if you want to get the most of your surround speakers (you also need to use RCA connectors for input) Here are some more features:
- Includes receiver, transmitter, cables and two power supplies
- Use for surround speakers as well as subwoofers
- 200 foot range
- Weighs only 3 oz
- Eliminates the delay often found with Bluetooth connectivity
- Bright LED lights
- Fast installation
- Two audio channels
