Are Home Theater Rear speakers wireless?

Although we have written about this topic before, the confusion around this issue continues. Most manufacturers’ continue to promote “wireless” rear speakers in an effort to sell their systems. The term wireless sets false expectations for the consumer. When someone hears the term wireless, they rightfully expect that the speakers will not need any wires to operate. This is not true, speakers require power and there is no wireless power. Unfortunately, the consumer doesn’t discover this until it’s time to install the speakers. What is meant by wireless rear speakers is that the audio signal is wireless and as a result, no wires are needed to be run from the front of the room to the rear of the room. For most home theater systems, the rear speakers need to either be connected directly to an electrical outlet or wired to a rear amplifier/receiver. To avoid installation surprises and unwanted aesthetic results, be sure you know what is needed to install your rear speakers before you purchase any home theater system.
