Installing wireless speakers doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, everybody will have at least some background in setting up electronic products can easily do the job. Obviously, picking some speakers which have better wireless reception can make the job a lot easier. I will explain in a minute.
Regardless of whether you are setting up a home theater system or are distributing music in your home, you can either connect regular speakers or opt for alternatives. The alternatives to regular speakers are sound bars as well as wireless speaker models. Sound bars are easy to set up because you don’t have to install several dedicated speakers. They usually work pretty well in most environments. However, to optimize the sound coming from the rear speakers, sound bars often do not fully satisfy.
Therefore, I highly suggest putting in some rear speakers. Setting up rear speakers usually is quite a problem because you don’t want the hassle of long speaker wires littering the floor of your living room. This is where wireless solutions come in. Wireless speakers are one option. Usually, the speakers come with a transmitter unit which can broadcast up to two audio channels. Therefore, this works perfectly for rear speakers which require two distinct audio channels.
However, some audio receivers which decode the surround sound tracks don’t give RCA outputs for rear speakers. If you plan on setting up wireless speakers then you might want to look for a surround receiver which has dedicated outputs for the rear speakers which are not amplified. Alternatively, you can purchase a converter which connects on one side speaker outputs which come from your receiver and then deliver a line-level audio signal which can connect to the transmitter unit of the wireless speakers.
Make sure that you set the volume correctly. Usually, transmitters have a maximum input level. If you exceed this signal level, the signal will clip internally and thus distortion occurs. To avoid distortion, always adjust the input level of the transmitter. If the transmitter doesn’t provide a level control then change the output level using your audio source.
Set the volume on each speaker so that the level is balance. Also, I highly recommend running a calibration routine using your home theater receiver. This will make sure that all speakers are balanced with one another.
