    got it home set it up... didn't read the manual first... should have it was simplistic but just didn't work with my set up, probably was my A/V receiver.

    Didn't work well with my HSU Subwoofer (popping issues occurred). It seems to work with others so recommend "googling" to see if popping issues occur with your subwoofer.

    I have purchased this item twice over the years, but both times it would not work with my system. Please research before purchasing.

    Will not work with this unit. I even bought two of them thinking that would solve the cable issue, nope.

    Couldn't get it to work with my system. Would get popping particularly during no bass parts or low power. Tried various reciever and sub amp settings.

    I believe this only works to transmit the sound signal, but does not have enough power to drive the subwoofers that don't have their own power plug. My subwoofer is part of a home theater amplifier (a sony bravia 1000w "creap" system bought in 2005) and is powered by the amplifier itself, so I was skeptical that the wireless kit would have enough amplification to drive it - and I was right, unfortunately. The speaker wire has a proprietary sony plug, so I had to also cut the wire and buy 2 speaker-wire-to-RCA kits to complete the connection. The amplifier has an auto-calibration feature where it plays some loud tones though all the speakers to set the surround sound. At this point the subwoofer sounded so low that the calibration ended in error. I disassembled my wiring and returned everything. I already had another kit for the surround speakers which has worked for many years and didn't seem to interfere with this second kit.
