Has anyone had any experience with the wireless subwoofers. Since I stay in an apartment, i'm particularly concerned with the interference it might pick up from other wireless signals in the building.
Whats the take on HSU's ULS-15?

Sorry nobody has responded to your post. I am guessing this is due to the fact that it is an Axiom forum and Axiom to my knowledge does not offer a wireless sub. You might want to try the HSU or AVR forums for more advice. best of luck

I know there was some interest in it in the past, but I don't know that anyone around here got one of them.

I was interested, but then the EP800 announcement happened, and I spent a ton of money with Axiom. Ha ha. It would still be cool to know what the ULS-15 can do, and testing the wireless aspect would be nice.

You could always make whatever subwoofer that you get wireless with the Aperion Home Audio Link™ System. It's a little spendier than I'd like, so here's hoping some competing products come out.

Aperion seems to be taking hold to wireless technology. They recently announced they will be bringing to market a wireless two-way powered speaker as well.

Hi Sarang,

Axiom has not experimented with wireless subwoofer technology, nor have I, however we did experiment with wireless speakers for outdoor use.

In a general way, as soon as you get into wireless technology, there are several major problems--noise and interference being well up at the top of the list. There are so many competing devices for wireless bandwidth that it's almost impossible to totally eliminate the problem. If you've played around with various wireless headphones, which I've done, you'll get some idea of the intrinsic problems.

I've never played with a wireless subwoofer connection to see what the current state is. Of course, you still have to connect the subwoofer to AC power, because you can't transmit amplifier power wirelessly.

I will say that the folks who own the HSU 15's give very favorable reviews on other forums. Some runing upto 4 of them wirelessly with no crosstalk from other devices. In this day and age this should be very doable in my opinion, especially just for a sub. I know people that wirelessly send HD video/audio in their home with no issues, breakup, or lag time.

I think this would be a huge seller for Axiom if they have the time to research. In past customer council calls I did mention it to Ian and the gang, hope it is on the plate for future discussions. It sure would make placing multiple subs in a room much easier, and you know we talk about that all the time.. smile

Randy do you know how they send the signals. I would think that using wireless networking might be a viable way of connecting all your speakers. IMO for the masses wireless is the way of the future and Axiom would be shooting itself in the foot not to look more into pursuing it.

To be honest I don't know how all of it is configured. Although they are my friends, at work, I have yet to stop by their pad. smile

Going by a few comments on AVS the wireless is a bit of a hit and miss, some love it and some have issues
From wingnut4772:
"I have the ULS-15 Quad Drive and I like my subs. The wireless is a mixed bag. At first I liked the versatility of it but I was getting too much interference with my Bluetooth PS3, my wireless network, Squeezebox etc. I decided just to hook them up the old fashioned way and they sound great. If I were to put them in a custom room I would not use wireless but would run cables to their positions."

"While wireless works fine for many people, others (myself included) have had issues with wireless interference from other devices, including cordless telephones"
