Converting to a Wireless Surround Sound System

Nov 8th 2012 at 11:50 PM

Surround sound is something that a lot of people decide they want to have in their home. The problem is that they find that having a lot of wires all over the place is unsightly and can be a real hazard. So they want to convert it to a wireless surround sound. Unfortunately, they aren't sure how they are can do it.

If you are someone that has regular surround system and wants to convert it to a wireless surround sound system in your house, here are the steps that you can take in order to get your house sounding like a theater without all of the wires.

The first thing that you have to do is to unplug your receiver from its electrical outlet. Then you have to cut some speaker's wire into lengths of twelve inches, stripping a half an inch of insulation from the wires at each end of the lengths. You are going to need two of these lengths for each of your speakers that are going to be connected to the wireless transmitter you are using.

The next thing that you want to do when you convert to wireless surround sound is to connect the speaker wires to posts on the rear of the receivers for each of your wireless speakers. As an example, the speakers in the rear of the surround sound are usually the two in your system that are converted from wired to wireless, so a length of wire is going to be connected to the rear channel on the left and on the right, and you are going match the red wire to the corresponding post, connecting the other wire to the post that is black,

Now, you are going to do attach the wires' other ends to the wireless transmitter that you will get with your kit. The wires are going to connect to the transmitter box's back with some spring clips that will lift to uncover holes that can be used for those wires beneath them.

The next step to setting up a wireless surround sound is to attach your smaller boxes for wireless receivers to your speakers using more speaker wire and the same methods as above. Then you want to put your speakers in the areas that you want them to be and get your receivers plugged in.

At this point, you want to reconnect your receiver and the transmitters which are attached to your power source. Finally, switch on your receiver and make sure it's set to the mode that says surround sound in order to test your speakers and make sure that they are working.

Here are a couple of tips to remember:

Make sure that you are connecting the wires right when you are connecting your speakers, because you are going to find that the signal is reversed.

Make sure that you aren't plugging anything in anything until you have completed all of your all your connections.

It's not difficult to convert to wireless surround sound as long as you follow the steps above.
