Hey guys, I have svs PB2000, due to size and performance issues i have to put the sub in a location where it can't be hardwired. I was looking for a wireless transmitter. I see that best buy carries one from rocketfish , also svs sells one by dayton and outlaw audio has one, buts it's pricey. Does anyone have experience with any of these or others?

Unfortunately I don't have any direct exposure to any of the wireless options you mention, but I have reviewed three subwoofers that were wireless. In each instances I found no issues, and once you stopped thinking about it you really forgot they were wireless.

Thanks, I will probably go with the dayton since svs sales it. I don't think they would sell something that would make there subs sound bad.

I have been using a pair of rocket fish wireless transmitters for a year now and they work great.
Thanks, since I can pick these up locally , going to give them a try. Did you have to rerun your Cal when you hooked these up? I already have my sub wired at the place I want it, was hoping I could just hook up the wireless without recalibrating ,I have a yamaha 1030 recevier.

You should re-run Ypao so that it adjust for the delay by increasing the distance setting for the sub channel. All wireless devices add a bit of delay to the signal. You can try it without changing anything but if it sounds different you will know to re-run cal.

Another thing I like about the Rocket fish is that they run on a 5ghz bandwidth so wireless networks do not cross and interfere. Also I do not lose any extension with these...some brands roll off below 20hz.

The Rocketfish Wireless Subwoofer Transmitter/Receiver Kit run in the 2.4 ghz band. I was uncertain myself so I asked them via email 2 weeks ago and they confirmed it works in the 2.4 ghz band.

I have no experience with wireless subs but I just ordered the Dayton wireless sub transmitter from SVS. I will post once I get the device.

Interesting I was told 5ghz...either way I have no issues they work great. :)

That's good to hear. I'm always worried about wireless affecting the signal or timing. I grabbed the Dayton one myself, not because I didn't like the Rocketfish but because the Dayton one was on amazon so I bundled it with one of my orders.

Hooked up the rocket fish wireless sub transmitter this morning and so far it's been working great. It comes out of the box pre paired , all you have to do is connect them to receiver and sub and away you go. I haven't ran ypao yet and was playing music all day while cleaning the house. My sub sounded the same as when wired. I plugged in The Incredible Hulk for a minute, I did notice a little decrease in output on some low end scenes , but I think it's because I didn't run the cal again yet. Will run ypao tomorrow and see how it sounds.
