Product Information

SVS engineered the best wireless subwoofer adapter available and then made it better by designing it to pass a pristine and accurate full-range audio signal at CD-quality for the benefit of speaker owners. The SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter reduces subwoofer cable clutter without sacrificing performance better than any solution available and it also unlocks wireless connectivity for a stereo zone of speakers, powered surround sound speakers, and amplifiers, while solving placement issues.

Eliminate Cable Clutter and Expand Subwoofer Placement Options

Subwoofers are often the largest component in any audio or home theater system so placement can be a challenge. The SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter adds wireless connectivity giving you more subwoofer placement options and decreasing cable clutter without sacrificing performance.

Full-Range Wireless Connectivity

The rated frequency response for transmission is 6Hz to 22,000 Hz +/-1 dB, so the adapter also unlocks wireless connectivity for a stereo zone of loudspeakers, powered home theater surround sound speakers, amplifiers and more at CD-quality with ultra-low latency (<25.5 milliseconds) within the 2.4GHz frequency band.

Quick and Easy Installation

Simply connect the transmitter to an AV receiver, TV or other audio source via RCA interconnect; connect the receiver to a subwoofer, powered speaker, or amplifier; pair the two devices, and the SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter sends a 16-bit/48KHz signal with no cables or wires required. Cable clutter and placement issues are a thing of the past! For added versatility, up to three adapters can be paired to create a multi-room distributed audio system.

On July 14, 2020 I
On July 14, 2020 I received the SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter from SVS and tested and used it in the intended location. It performed as expected in several ways, but failed in two respects that were unacceptable, as described below.

The line-of-sight path was 15 feet long, from chest high on a shelf with the SVS transmitter and computer workstation to the next room's SVS receiver placed on the audio equipment stack at waist height. The path was at an angle through an open doorway. The problem was that whenever a person crossed that path or even blocked any part of it, the audio signal was lost or broke up. No amount of reorientation or shifting of either transmitter or receiver solved this problem. This was clearly unworkable.

The other problem was that the adapter link distorted the audio signal when I used the normal output levels from my sound card on the pc and the Aux or CD or Line inputs on my audio amplifier. It was clearly an overload/clipping situation at the SVS transmitter input. I had to keep the sound card output level lower than convenient and the amplifier's volume/loudness settings higher than for any other sources (tuner, CD, tape, phono) to avoid the overloading at the adapter's input. This required adjustments at both ends of the audio adapter link. This involved running back and forth to adjust level settings, each time breaking the beam and losing the signal.

I suspect that this limitation was due to the transmitter circuitry being designed around a 5-volt DC USB-type power supply. If this design were changed to a 12-volt DC supply and used an A/D converter or RF modulator that had a wider dynamic range, this limitation could likely be eliminated. However, the path-blocking problem would probably require abandoning the 2.45 GHz band and moving down in frequency (and up in wavelength, which is the key), to an alternate FCC slot. I'm not familiar with current FCC allocations beyond those in the 600 MHz range for FM wireless microphones so can't suggest specific alternative bands.

I also did a quick test of potential interference from a 1990 GE microwave oven that was located in the same house but one floor down and 40 feet away. Older wireless internet equipment, including external antennas and laptops in the same location as the SVS adapter have historically been interfered with by this microwave open, which (legally) radiates in the 2.45 GHz band. I was pleased that the SVS adapter experienced no problems when the microwave oven was running. In closer proximity it might have.

I would note that I have experience spanning over 60 years with repairing, installing and designing audio and radio equipment and taught the subject in my career as physics professor and consultant in industry. However, I'm not current on chips and devices in consumer equipment of this type, nor Wi-Fe, Bluetooth and other digital RF technologies.

I returned the adapter for a refund and was impressed at all stages by the customer service I received and the opportunity to provide this review. I very much wish that the SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter had worked in my application, as I'm sure it does for many owners.

Good product, good service
I purchased a wireless audio adapter in hopes of connecting my turntable's preamp to my amplifier, remotely without any cables. The product works flawlessly. Prior to the purchase received prompt confirmation from customer service about the wireless adapter's capabilities for successfully solving my problem. I am very satisfied and impressed with this company and its products.

My family room situation became such that a wireless product was necessary. I had choices, but the quality and performance of my SVS SB2000 subwoofer made choosing the SVS solution a no brainer. It took me a few minutes to set it up and voila, wireless subterranean magic! I made the right choice.

It's okay, needs longer cords for the boxes
Cords are really short, it does receive interference from the wireless router, could be better designed. It's okay but we had to modify the cords to get the boxes to talk to each other.

SoundPath Wireless Adapter for back surround using self powered speakers
I purchased the SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter for a somewhat unique use. I needed a means to get a signal to the back surround channel in my Dolby Atmos 9.1.2 system. I had a good location to mount the the rear speakers, but no method to get a wired connection to that location due to an open floor plan. I ended up using the SoundPath Wireless Adapter to send the two channels of back surround from my Anthem MRX-720 Receiver back surround line outputs to a set of powered KEF LSX speakers. The setup works great. I set the rear speakers to a distance of 30 feet (even though they are only about 3 feet away physically) to compensate for the time delay in the encoding, transmission/reception, and decoding of the wireless signal. The only negative at all is that the power/synced indicator LED is BRIGHT, I have covered the LEDs with a piece of black electrical tape for now. I am thinking I might see if I can place a piece dark opaque plastic with a very small hole drilled through the plastic over the LED so that it is possible to see if the sync is lost (the LEDs blink if the transmitter/receiver are not in sync), without the size and intensity of the LED being as obvious. Very pleased with the purchase, and recommended to anybody else that might be in a similar situation.

This worked well and allowed
This worked well and allowed me to move my sub about 25’ from my amplifier. Installation was easy. I am giving it 4 stars instead of five because the price is too high for what it is. At a $90 price point I would have given 5 stars.
