Dayton Audio Sub-Link XR 2.4 GHz Wireless Audio Transmitter Receiver System for Subwoofers

Installing a second audio zone or putting a subwoofer exactly where you want it can be a challenge if you can't run the proper cables. Renters and owners of finished homes may find in-wall cabling impossible.

The Dayton Audio Sub-Link™ Wireless Audio System solves wiring dilemmas, quickly and easily. Place your subwoofer in the location that provides optimal sound without worrying about a cable. Or, add a subwoofer to the rear of your listening space to spread out the low frequency effects of your favorite movies. Check the prices on long subwoofer cables, and you might find out that in addition to being more convenient, the Sub-Link is also more affordable!

For users hoping to add stereo zone capability to an existing A/V installation, the Dayton Audio Sub-Link Wireless Audio System extends the options and uses of your primary audio system. Use the Sub-Link to add powered speakers or passive speakers running off a local amplifier to your patio, pool area, or anywhere you'd like to enjoy music away from your primary A/V system. Connect the Sub-Link to your PC, TV, or streaming media player and send a signal to any stereo in the house.

Dayton Audio Sub-Link XR 2.4 GHz Wireless Audio Transmitter Receiver System for Subwoofers
Dayton Audio Sub-Link XR 2.4 GHz Wireless Audio Transmitter Receiver System for Subwoofers is rated 4.6154 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine!I used this with the new slim sub and it works fine. My wife is constantly moving the furniture around so this adapter is priceless. I did need to set the sub to "on" instead of "auto" so that it would work. After that my receiver found it and I was able to run the calibration routine. My receiver is in a closet and the sub is about 20 feet away and it works like it should.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done!The transmitter and receiver are sync'd at the factory and are plug & play. I have used these for rear surround speakers in an application where we couldn't run wires. The latest application was to run a second sound system on the opposite side of the house. If you get beyond 50 ft. or so you lose connection. I used patch cords to bring the receiver closer to the transmitter and was back in business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system!I bought this set to plug into my bluetooth speaker in the family room. The bluetooth just wasn't reliable, So I purchased this set to plug into the AUX port of the speaker. I have not had one drop out since and the audio is unbelievable! It was also simple to hook up and worked the first time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good for additional christmas lightingitem works as promised. expected more in housing of unit for the price, feels flimsy. what I don't appreciate is I go into the livingroom in the dark and to my surprise I see a blue flashing light on the wall. the subwoofer was off but the unit was consuming electricity by the flashing light. now i'm wondering did I connect it wrong? I tried it and it worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a neat solution to a vexing problemSince my sub-woof is remote from the signal source (a "mature" Onkyo receiver), with a fireplace between, this solution was highly effective. The bandwidth of the signal is small, no challenge to the transmit-receive link, and the distance is modest. The packages of the active elements are small and unobtrusive, and the signal provided to the amplifier in the Dayton SUB-1500 is entirely satisfactory. I've not yet experienced any interference with the cordless phone that operates in the same nominal frequency range.In summary, the product does what it claims and does it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this productI'm a gadget person, so when I opened the box and saw this tiny little system I immediately fell for it...as long as it worded of course. I glanced over the directions but it was really straight forward. Upon plugging in the transmitter and receiver I got solid blue lights...sweet! I finished the hookup to my sub and the sub 2 output of my Denon X4000, went through the Audyssey set up with no problems at all. I had heard that the set up shows your sub connected to this as being quite far due to the lag time...mine was at 32 feet...it's actually about 6 feet from my listening so take that into consideration...The cables to connect everything are pretty short and very cheap. But other than that I love it.

I need to run the transmitter from a battery supply. What would you recommend?

Asked by: AbsoluteIdiot
This system is designed to work on 5 VDC. You can either use a 5 volt battery for this, or a voltage regulator with a higher powered battery.

is there a product like this for full range speakers?  my surround speakers are on a slab tile floor and I have a vaulted ceiling overhead.  the wires going around the room are most unattractive.  looking for wireless transmitter to connect to AVR.

Asked by: bcnaples
This will work for full range speakers as long as they have an amplifier on the other end. If not, you will have to look at something like this:http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-xra25-wireless-rear-channel-amplifier-system-with-subwoofer-channel--300-579

I intend to put my home theatre receiver and the Dayton transmitter in my new home in an enclosed cabinet. Will the sub receiver still get a good, strong signal from the transmitter or does it need line of sight transmission?

Asked by: chuckroast
They will operate better in a line of site manner but it may require some testing in a cabinet setting.

I reset the transmitters to pair them up manually per instr.and now the blue light just flashes on both units. I tried to unplug them overnight and when I plugged them in again they are still flashing blue.  Any suggestions to get them paired again. 

Asked by: Bluesky61
In order to pair these you will have to hold the button down on one while pressing the button on the other, it doesn't matter which is which. If this does not pair them they may have an internal issue and you will have to contact our tech support, tech@parts-express.com or 800-338-0531 x1.

I have 2 stereo receivers: one on each floor.  I want to play the same music throughout the house.  can this product be used to connect the two stereos and stream the music to both floors?

Asked by: Just another geek
If the second receiver can be placed within the maximum range of the transmitter, then the Sub-Link might be able to be used in this way, however it is not designed for whole-house audio applications (which usually require transmitting through walls) so proper operation isn't guaranteed. You may be interested in our XRA25 amplified wireless audio system, which has a longer range.
