You may want to install a number of wireless speaker in the same room. This may be the case if you have a 7.1 home theater system. 7.1 systems require a total of 8 speakers. Chances are that you want to have a good number of those speakers be wireless to avoid a lot of cable clutter. This can be done but there are several things to watch out for. In this post I’ll explain exactly what you need to know to make your installation a success.
The most difficult part of setting up multiple speakers is ensuring that none of the speakers will interfere with each other. Most wireless transmitters can be set to a specific wireless channel. This method is a simple and effective in coordinating multiple transmitters. Some speakers such as Amphony cordless loudspeakers come with a transmitter that supports multiple speakers. This approach is far simpler than fiddling with multiple transmitters.
When you do use separate wireless transmitters for each set of speakers then don’t place these transmitters right next to one another. Each transmitter sends a strong signal which can affect the other transmitter. You should keep a distance of at least 3 feet between each transmitter to be safe.
