Features

Overview: The Klipsch WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit is designed to add simplistic wireless capability to select powered subwoofers. The Klipsch WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit consists of two components; a wireless Transmitter & wireless Receiver. The WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit makes adding a powered subwoofer to a new or existing speaker system much easier, because it replaces the need for a separate subwoofer cable that traditionally must be connected between the receiver and the powered sub. Now, you can easily place your powered subwoofer where it both sounds and looks best in the room since you're not restricted by an audio cable. 

Compatibility: The Klipsch WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit  is compatible with select Klipsch, Energy, Mirage, and Jamo brand powered subwoofers that have a "WA-Port" on the rear-panel. Compatible subwoofer includes (as of 7/24/2012):

  • Klipsch: SW-110, SW-112, SW-115, SW-308, SW-310, & SW-311
  • Energy: ESW-M6 & ESW-M8
  • Mirage: MM-6, MM8
  • Jamo: Sub 800

Note: Up to four WA-2's can be used simultaneously.

Wireless 2.4GHZ Communication: The Klipsch WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit (WA-2) operates wirelessly over the 2.4GHz frequency range with a wireless transmission range of up to 50'. Because of its advanced automatic channel selection technology, the WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit does not interfere with, nor has interference from any other wireless systems in your home (such as your wireless network or wireless phone system).

Automatic Pairing: The two-piece kit, composed of a transmitter and a receiver, conducts a simple automatic pairing process that syncs the transmitter and receiver the first time they are used; after that, your compatible powered sub is automatically activated when ready for use.

Two-Piece Kit: The Klipsch WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit consists of two components; a wireless Transmitter & wireless Receiver.

  • Wireless Transmitter: The wireless Transmitter is fitted with stereo RCA jacks that connect to your home theater receiver's LFE/subwoofer output port (via the included 15" audio cable; Y-adapter maybe required). You will also need to connect the Transmitter's external power supply to an AC wall outlet for power.
  • Wireless Receiver: The wireless Receiver features a proprietary 4-pin connector which plugs into the "WA-port" of your compatible powered subwoofer. There are two keyhole slots on the wireless Receiver which allows you to mount the unit to the back of your powered sub. The proprietary 4-pin "WA-port" connector provides audio signal to your powered sub and power for the wireless Receiver.

Gain Control: The transmitter's input gain control compensates for varying output levels of different home theater receivers, allowing maximum performance with any system.

  • Frequency of Operation: 2.4GHz ISM band
  • Channel Selection: Automatic
  • Signal Range: 50'

No subwoofer wires

Written By BillyS, Raleigh, NC on Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great buy, I put my subwoofer around the room until I found the correct spot that sounded best. Not having to worry about connected up a cable of different lengths not only was less unsightly with not wire, but also gave me the freedom to put it away from the TV surround sound receiver in a better hidden location. Seem to work great and easy to install, just connect and push a few buttons.

Pros: easy to use, sounds great

Cons: more costly than a subwoofer cable

Klipsch rocks - but be careful on this!

Written By KW, Tampa, FL on Thursday, August 15, 2013

Klipsch, in my opinion, is the best of the best - you cant beat it with the price levels I play in $500 to $7k.... Here is the trick - THIS wireless kit WILL NOT WORK on any sub that does not have the PROPRIETARY WA port....!! I didnt read that closely enough - and it could have been stressed more - if you have a sub like mine that only has a normal speaker connection - this wifi kit cant plug in to it... Klipsch is still king... i just wish they made this to service all subs and not just the ones they sell with some funny connector.

Pros: Klipsch Rocks

Cons: This kit does NOT connect to all subwoofers - just theirs that have a fancy pants extra WA connector.

Klipsch WA-2

Written By Jim M, Grapevine, TX on Sunday, February 03, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit is made up of a transmitter and a receiver module, as well as a power cable for the transmitter.

Setup was very simple on the sub end. Simply plug the wireless receiver in to the connector (looks like an old S-Video connector) on the sub and you're done. The wireless module is powered by the sub.

On the other end (in my case a Yamaha RX-A1020 receiver) it's a little tricky because the audio connector cable is quite short. If the wireless transmitter sits on top of the receiver, it's about halfway back and does not reach the front. This isn't an issue in practice because the signal seems strong enough to pair perfectly with the sub, even though my receiver is partially enclosed in a built-in cabinet. Line of sight is not required. This module requires an included power cable, which only makes sense.

Pairing the wireless connection didn't work on the first try. Pairing requires pressing both units' reset buttons simultaneously. Depending on the distance involved, this can be a two-person job. Not a big deal but after one cycle the pairing worked and continues to work each time we power off / power on the system. Don't be confused by the instructions referring to red LEDs on the unit, either - they are green and only green.

Pros: Flawless sound Steady, stable connection Gives you lots of flexibility in your system setup with no wiring hassles

Cons: No real cons

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to set up and love the fact that I can place my sub anywhere in the room without running a cable. This made it easy to determine the best spot from an appearance and sound quality perspective.

Pros: Convenience

Cons: Concerned about the difference in sound quality versus wired, but I haven't notice any yet.

Yes it wll work,provided no metal of any kind is infront of the remote box, [ ART  Aug 08, 2014 ]
I think so. I have mine inside a wood cabinet 15 feet away from the sub. [ Dan  Aug 04, 2014 ]
I also have my reciever in a closet and the wa-2 works great. I did notice the sub would hum when the crossover was in bypass never researched why. My sub is about 12ft away and around a corner from the closet. I recomend and would purchase again. [ RYAN  Jul 29, 2014 ]
Yes it work but follow the distance that say the instruction [ JUAN R  Jul 29, 2014 ]
Hi Pete, I believe the range is around 50 feet so you shouldn't have any problems with wireless communication between receiver and sub. Even though my gear is placed all together in the same room, I'm extremely happy with the wireless receiver. It was an easy setup and I haven't had any problems. Hope this helps you out. [ CHARLES L  Jul 29, 2014 ]
hi pete. yes my receiver is in a closet and the sub is out in the room and it works great. hope that helps. steve h. [ STEVEN  Jul 29, 2014 ]
I know it works across the room and from hanging off the back of the entertainment center but I have not tried it through walls. The entertainment center is about 3 ft. deep with lots of stuff inside between the transmitter and the receiver (WA-2). Since you mentioned this I might try it to see. [ ROBERT  Jul 29, 2014 ]
Pete - I have the transmitter located in a stereo closest with closed door connected to the sub about 25 feet away. No problems with wireless. Have never dropped and had to repair. Mark [ MARK G  Jul 28, 2014 ]
Sorry but not sure, as all of my components are out in the open! [ MICHAEL W  Jul 28, 2014 ]
This may help. I have two subwoofer for my stero which are tower speakers by Paradigm, one klipsch RW 12- 11 with W A transmitter the other with Rocetfish. I have to stand across this transmitters to play my music from my SMARTPHOE to the USB PORT located in front of my receiver . I noticed that the signal connection from the Rocetfish will stop if I stand in front for about 60 sec. or so ( blinking red ) This never happened with the WA- 2 I'm not sure if you need a little opening from your closet or not. [ ALFREDO  Jul 28, 2014 ]
My unit isn't in a different room or closet, but the sub woofer is in the back of the room behind all of our furniture and seems to work without any issues. I think it may be fine, but maybe check Crutchfield return policy in case it doesn't work. [ BRIAN  Jul 28, 2014 ]
Mine is working great with sub about 30' away from receiver. The receiver is in an enclosed cabinet set into an alcove with a wall on three sides. [ BRITTON  Jul 28, 2014 ]
