Be Aware of Wireless Speakers


Once again this week, we had 2 customers that were shocked and disappointed to find out their “wireless” speakers required wires. Both clients said that they were told at the time of purchase that the speakers were wireless. To protect yourself when shopping for “wireless” speakers this holiday season, ask a simple question, are the speakers battery operated? If the answer is yes, you have a truly wireless speaker. If the answer is no, then you know a wire will be connected to your speaker. The reason is simple, speakers need power to create sound and power is not wireless. Because of this, your speaker will be connected to a receiver/amplifier with speaker wires or will have a power cord running from the speaker to an electrical outlet. The confusion usually results because the audio source in most cases is wireless. Even though no wires are needed to connect audio sources such as Pandora or Spotify to your speakers, wires are still needed to supply the power. Please visit our website @ www.wbsouth.com.
