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 4.6818 out of 5 by 22.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect SolutionJust receive it the other day. I plugged in the proper RCA cables, plugged in the power cord and it worked perfectly. The subwoofer was in a room away from the receiver and sounded just as it did when it was connected to the receiver...I was concerned about possible hum because the old sub was grounded to the receiver, but there was no hum at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as describedI'm still getting used to using the product with my current set up, it does work but sometimes takes some manual adjusting to get it to work. This could be something with my AV receiver not the product itself. I doesn't interfere with my wifi router like some reported, at least not yet. When working the sub sounds great a usual.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great for my needs.Got this so I could have the laptop out on the deck for our party, sending wireless audio inside the house to the amplifier that powers the deck speakers. 20 feet between transmitter and reciever through a brick wall and no issues=party on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for subwoofersBought this to connect the audio out of my wall mounted flat screen to a Bose SoundTouch unit somewhere else in the great room. Transmitter is powered by USB so the transmitter fits behind the TV with a need to take the TV down to install. Only downside is the sound is delayed slightly by the link so you need to put the TV's speakers on mute so you do not get the annoying echo effect. No wires needed at all for audio hookup. Does not seem to be any frequency rolloff in the spectrum. Great idea. I do not have any 2.4GHz devices in the house so I do not know if it would interfere with existings devices (like portable phones) pre-existing.

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

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.

I placed the system in operation yesterday and it seemed to work well, but I noticed today that I have to turn the gain on my sub up all the way and I still don't get nearly the volume that I did when connected directly to the receiver.

What is the signal bandwith transmitted? It certainly doesn't take up the whole (channel 1-11) 2.4 GHz wifi band.  2.404 to 2.467 is 63 MHz.  Is the actual center frequency marked on the unit or does it negotiate for a channel based on activity?

Asked by: K2RJ
This device negotiates channels based on activity.
