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.
Range: Transmits full-range audio signal up to 65'

I ordered this with two SB-3000s. Through some logistical issue only one sub came at first, but SVS immediately shipped another and the wireless kit. The kit was very easy to set up and plug in. I ran the subs both wired and wireless and there was no difference in sound quality, both for my ears and with measurements. There was a quantifiable signal delay which is to be expected, but luckily you can just adjust the phase on the SVS subs through their app which is super easy. I initially bought a Kef Kube which sounded good, but their wireless kit price is almost twice this and is proprietary. I thought I might keep the kube and just use the SVS wireless kit (it works with all wireless subs) but after my great experience with their customer service and after demoing the SVS subs and wireless, I took the Kube back day one. Kudos to SVS!
I purchased this subwoofer wireless system and I am very glad I did!!! No more LONG subwoofer cables !!! Have had it now for a couple of months and has worked flawlessly!! I have it connected to my Klipsch R-100SW sub and love the Blue light letting me know its working..No delays that I have noticed and that's great!!! Would recommend to ANYONE who wants "FREE SUBWOOFER MOVEMENT" I placed my subs on both ends of my sitting position under my coffee tables!! Left and Right!!! Get one NOW!!! It works perfect!!!
Be sure to plug it into the wall, not a usb on the media receiver. I did this and got a high pitched hum. Tech support handled it fast. This product works great. Zero issues. I have about 25ft between the two
So far, so super! I have not had any connection issues with the product. My only suggestion would be to allow the blue LED to be selectable - on or off. I know I can tape over it but that’s too “tacky”, excuse the pun!
It's with a heavy heart that I write this review. But, this was simply my experience with the SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter. Let me begin with saying, I absolutely adore SVS products. I have purchased the Ultra Towers, Center, and most recently a PC-4000 (to replace an aged PB-12 Ultra 2). I was excited to use the wireless adapter. My room is a 16' square. The receiver is in the rear corner on the opposite end of the room from the transmitter. The first unit would not connect unless I placed each unit within a few feet of one another and kept a line of sight. I was promptly sent a replacement (by SVS exceptional customer support team, honestly, they're fantastic). This unit would connect just fine, but the second someone stood between the receiver and transmitter it would lose connection. Better than the first unit, but still a problem. I found this strange since these communicate through RF, rather than IR, so no line of sight should be necessary. I don't have any other 2.4 ghz devices in that room either. It's quite perplexing. Oh well, I guess I'll be sticking with my wired connection for now. The PB-4000 sounds tremendous either way.
thought I had issues with the device, but after spending an hour with tech support we found out it was related to the equipment connecting to it. They were gracious and patient throughout the process and even gave me the information I needed to get things resolved with the other company.
I want to start a vlog to reach out to stereo music enthusiasts throughout the music industry and community if l can be apart of the SVS sound company l want to advertise and talk about how sound quality can change the music world through sound quality,l want to start advertising for SVS and show my appreciation through marketing SVS stereo speakers and accessories let me know what l can do to help sell your products thank you kindly Teddy Crisostomo
This thing saved my setup, allowing me to have a big sub in the living room. Just tucked it under a table behind the couch, and there's no noticeable delay for music, even using fast Magnepan speakers. Wish I'd gotten these long ago.
The wireless adapter performance is great i can't hear any lag in sound , setup was easy virtually plug and play , I needed my sud in proticular spot to fill the room and this adapter was the solution thank you everyone at svs
I looked at many reviews for these type of adapters and many were cheaper. If you have the bucks go with these, they work flawlessly out of the box. I was worried about group delay and "wake up" delay" - which other brands had - response is fast and no delays that I can notice. I sold high end audio for many years and I can recommend these without hesitation.
Overall the wireless adapters work great. I knocked off a star because the cables (both power and audio cable) could be longer to aid with installation. The single RCA to mini-jack cable for audio signal is pretty short so it limits placement of the transmitter and receiver. Also, the power cable (USB) is relatively short as well. I will also add that with the 5V transformer and the USB connected, the plug sticks out pretty far, so it's not possible to get the sub tucked up real close to a wall. Perhaps a 90 degree USB transformer plug would be helpful for this. Other than those minor issues, I've been happy with the performance and the convenience of not having to run a new sub cable.
Works great, strong signal. I have mine plugged into a miniDSP to integrate 3 subs together. The only thing I don’t like is the bright blue led. Brightness needs turned down or some tape placed over the light.
This is my third purchase of a wireless audio transceiver. The first one was useless. The second one was OK but it really didn't work with any obstructions in the way.. This one does the job. What more can you ask?
Had to relocate my sub away from a neighbors wall but it would have involved unsightly wires. The SVS wireless solution resolved my problem perfectly and seamlessly. Sounds as good wireless as it does wired ! Thank You SVS !
I love that I can place my subwoofers wherever I want in my living room and I have no problems with the signal. The only downfall is that I hear popping sounds from my sub's. At first I thought it was my AVR so I took it to a Marantz authorized dealer and drove from Houston to Austin to drop it off. Two weeks later they said my receiver is perfectly fine and both sub outputs are good. I was able to fit one of my subs next to my fronts and hooked up the sub via rca cable and I don't hear any popping sounds from that sub. The back sub is still hooked up to one of the Wireless Audio Adapter and I still hear the popping sounds. At the moment I have one Wireless Audio Adapter that I'm not even using anymore. Tech support said it is the result of interference from other 2.4 GHz devices. I have smart plugs and other devices around the house that use 2.4 GHz and will be impossible to not have any 2.4 GHz devices around the SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter. The popping sounds do get annoying, but what can I do? Tech support recommended the new 2.4/5 GHz adapter and it sounds very tempting due to the annoying popping sounds. But then I have 2 2.4 GHz adapters that I would not be using anymore. I wish SVS had a trade in policy and I wouldn't mind paying the difference. Other than that I really love the subwoofers.
After purchasing one unit, and taking it for a "test drive" on my rear-right subwoofer I was convinced thus, I decided to purchase a second unit for the rear-left subwoofer.
The fact that it passed my subjective initial listening test is one testament to it's performance. No issues with (unobstructed) signal, it is placed on my hardwood floor, furniture legs provide a clear path.
There are two less audio cables running along baseboard of my floors. Huge, huge pluses. All four subwoofers (two front, two rear at corners of room) are connected to an RCA amplified signal splitter, connecting the WAA was a walk in the park (although I think it takes more effort to actually walk in the park). There was no need to reset the pairing for either unit, it was as simple as plug n play. Enclosed double sided tape was a thoughtful gesture, no drill bit, drill or screws to secure the WAA.
My only bone to pick is that (currently) the WAA does not have an auto shut off feature if it doesn't detect a signal after a certain period of time (unlike my powered subwoofers) and an auto-mute at power On. Not really a deal killer (evidently). Both WAA's are connected to a smart plug, so when I tell Alexa to turn on the subwoofers, part of the Routine includes turning on the WAA power packs.
The only issue with this is a "thumping" sound I get from my rear subwoofers when power is fed to the WAA. By design, the WAA remains on at all times There is no auto shut off on the WAA itself. Accordingly, "they stay powered on so they can respond immediately to an input signal". But even my power amps have a default 2 second muted sound when powdered on, I'd be willing to bet a free lunch that the manufacturer designed it this way to avoid that "thump" when the amps are powered on. So, if my power amps can tell me to sit tight and wait for them to be unmuted when powered on, the WAA's can do the same.
I'm not asking to re-invent the wheel on the WAA, but if there isn't going to be a hard power switch (for obvious reasons) on the unit itself, would it be too much too ask to program the unit to have a 1 -2 second mute when being powered on? Especially in this age of smart home integration?
I really can't think of a scenario that justifies having the unit powered on at all times, pre-movie trailers typically run longer than 2 seconds, with the exception of the powered subwoofers that turn on instantly when they detect an input signal, I have to wait 1-2 seconds to be able to listen to any sound through my home theater. I'm not even going to get into how long it takes for my t.v. to connect to network provider servers and stream content (again, no immediate need to hear sound instantly).
Operative word: not a deal killer, more like an annoyance. I should only be able to hear the "thump" of an Imperial All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) or the footsteps of a Tyrannosaurus Rex when I see the actual image on my screen, not before.
This little bone, aside: buy it, you'll be happy you did and your room will look better because of it.
Using RCA connections, this wireless adapter system works perfectly and setup was idiot proof. The cost of this adapter is perfectly reasonable to the additional cost of a wireless sub, and you can throw any stereo signal you want through it.
Five stars for performance, ease of installation and visual design. The SoundPath wireless adaptor allowed me to place my SVS 3000 Mini where I wanted without having to run signal wire - without sacrificing audio performance - a huge plus. Compact design. I really like that the receiver unit is powered from a USB port on the rear of the sub.
I deducted 1 star for the 3.5mm connector used on both, the transmitter and receiver. This somewhat limits the ability to substitute/upgrade to higher quality audio cables. Though I'd just like to use something a little shorter/nicer, in truth, the provided cables work just fine.
