Wireless does not mean without wires

 

The SL2 system is a "wireless" connection between your system and the rear speakers. It contains a sender, receiver and all the cables needed to connect to the acoustimass base and the existing speakers. However, it is not wireless since both the ...

Simple setup with color coded wires for the system and the rear speakers

May not want to get it for a non-BOSE system

Wireless surround that does not degrade!

 

The wireless surround system that does not degrade the sound quality! It is really nice that I don't need to make a hole in the back to install the surround system. It works flawlessly. Love it!

Works beautifully

 

Initially, I was concerned with the 30-foot limitation (my application is 33 feet). The Bose support folks said there should be no problem and that it could be returned if it didn't work. It works as well as wires and I'm completely satisfied with it.

Solid wireless performance

 

No noticeable sound degradation for typical home theater uses. just remember, if it's not already clear to you, this just allows you to send a wireless signal from the speaker base unit to the rear of the room. You still need to run speaker wire from...

Product Specifications

The SL2 wireless surround link solves the most common challenge of home theater setup: How to cleanly connect the rear surround speakers - without drilling through walls or floors or rearranging the room to hide wires. This revolutionary transmitter/receiver package eliminates the usual wiring from the front of the room to the rear speakers. There's no more tangle of wires compromising your room's decor. And no more power tools. Instead, the SL2 wireless link uses proprietary wireless technology to deliver the same high quality of a fully wired Bose home entertainment system. You experience all the immersive effects of surround sound, without all the wires. The transmitter and receiver work on a radio frequency signal effective from up to 30 feet in the same room. So you can hide them from view with no impact on audio transmission. And setup is quick and intuitive with color-coded connections. Simply connect the transmitter to your Acoustimass module, and the receiver to your rear surround speakers. Then plug both units into a wall outlet ... and enjoy.
