[SOLVED] Making Speaker Wireless

As @kanewolf has already pointed out, the issue with doing this isn't from the availability of wireless equipment to do this with, but from a power at the speakers when you do.

There are many companies that make mono amps, such as Elan. You can place an amp and wireless receiver at each speaker, install the wireless sender on the head end side and make this happen. There are also a bevy of self powered and (as you have pointed out) wireless/BT options on the market which will streamline the process a lot.

Hello.
Looking around, what is a good set up for making three way Paradigm speakers wireless? I plan on more than likely adding a SVS sub.

Graciously,
Gary
I have the speaker configuration (wired) you are talking about. But the problem with "wireless" is that each speaker requires an amplifier. The SVS has one built-in, but the Paradigms don't.
What do you want them to be "wireless" to ? A home theater receiver? WIFI streaming? Those are very different problems.

They would be wireless to a Integra receiver. I saw the JBL one but wondering what the options are.

Would it be better to get powered blue tooth speaker? Ugh, would prefer to use the speakers I have.

Thanks ya'll. Right would rather keep using existing speakers.

My wonderful wife has agreed to simply run one wire over the mantel and make it blend in as much as possible with current home decor. Yay, can save money and put it towards a sub. Fantastic!

Grave and peace.

For greater wife acceptance factor (WAF), you can get a quote to run speaker wire in-wall from a low voltage cabling specialist. The have specialized tools to allow them to run cables to areas you can't.
