What does “wireless rear speakers” really mean?


Many manufacturers promote wireless rear speakers for their home theater systems. This has led to much confusion during installations since many clients expect that a speaker is mounted on the wall, programmed and then ready to go. This is not the case. All speakers require power, rear speakers included, and power is not wireless. This wireless feature does eliminate the need to run wires from the console/receiver to the rear speakers. This is especially helpful when there is no attic or basement. To use this wireless feature, speaker wires need to run from each individual rear speaker to the wireless receivers, one for each speaker. These receivers require power so try and locate near electrical outlets. The end result is that for rear speakers that are placed on end tables, shelves, or speaker floor stands, there is a good chance you will see exposed speaker wires. For speakers that are ceiling or wall mounted, speaker wires are run inside the walls and then exit the walls near en electrical outlet to minimize exposed wires. To completely eliminate exposed wires, run the speakers wires and connect directly to the console/receiver eliminating the need for the rear speaker receivers.
