Morgan Hill, Calif. - Active-subwoofer supplier Velodyne introduced a wireless system that turns any brand of active subwoofer into a wireless subwoofer.
The $169 WiConnect System consists of a 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver with a 50-foot range. Users connect the transmitter into the line-level or LFE output jack of an A/V receiver. The WiConnect receiver in turn connects to the subwoofer's input.
The transmitter sends signals to up to four receivers, allowing for the installation of up to four subwoofers in a sound system.
The company already offers a subwoofer with included wireless. That model, the $399 WiConnect-10, features a wireless range of up to 50 feet, 10-inch driver and 125-watt RMS power output.
