It’s hard to just put a subwoofer in the middle of the floor. You trip over it, the cat sits on it, and neighbors come in and rest drinks and their keys on it. Now you can put that subwoofer wherever you want it—even away from the rest of your A/V system.
Infinity Systems just announced its PS212W, the company’s first entry into the wireless subwoofer category. That means no need to route wires through walls or floors; it can go wherever you need it to.
Hook up the transmitter/receiver module to any audio source, and the unit uses the 2.4GHz frequency range with four possible channel choices.
It doesn’t sound too shabby either, thanks to a built-in 400-watt amplifer and a 2-inch woofer with Infinity’s Metal Matrix Diaphragm (MMD) driver material. All that equals a nice sound, with not too much distortion.
If you want to get all old school, you can use the PS212W as a wired subwoofer too. Either way, it’s still $679. Expect the Infinity PS212W sometime in January 2008.
