Klipsch announced a Wireless Subwoofer Kit, the company's first ever product that offers superior wireless flexibility to its high-performance subwoofers through plug 'n play functionality.
The wireless subwoofer kit, model WA-2 (Wireless Access), connects directly to the “WA port” on the rear panel of select Klipsch, Mirage, Energy, and Jamo subwoofer models so-equipped. This wireless kit allows for convenient bass enhancement of music, home theater and whole-house audio systems. It also allows a consumer to transfer the LFE (Low Frequency Effects) signal wirelessly from an AV receiver, for example, to a compatible KGI subwoofer. The unique WA-2 allows for significant enhancement of whole-house audio / in-wall / in-ceiling systems, often lacking in bass response, through flexible placement of the subwoofer(s) into various rooms delivering rich, powerful sound. Up to six or more wireless sub kits can be used in a typical household.
The two-piece kit is composed of a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter plugs into the “Sub/LFE out” or “L/R pre-out” port of any stereo/home theater component. The receiver plugs into the “WA port” on the back of the KGI subwoofer. A simple pairing process syncs the transmitter and receiver the first time they are used; after that, the sub is automatically activated as soon as an LFE signal is sent. This accessory is meant to add simplistic wireless capability to the already superior performing Klipsch subwoofers, including the Klipsch SW-110, SW-112, SW-308, SW-310, SW-311; the Energy ESW-M6 and ESW-M8; the Mirage MM-6, MM-8 and the Jamo Sub 800.
The WA-2 will available for purchase by summer 2011. Check price →
