MartinLogan SW2-RD Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Easy Hook Up and Pairing
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The Martin Logan wireless receiver and transmitter are so simple to hook up. Two RCA Cords are all you need, one for the receiver and one for the transmitter. Plug the Martin Logan transformers into A/C power and press the Pairing Buttons on both units. That's it........ You are done and now your sub can be placed anywhere you want without the need for a coaxial cable under the carpet or run around the room. Great Product....... Scott

Replacement Receiver: The SWT-2 is a replacement wireless receiver for MartinLogain's SWT-2 wireless receiver/transmitter package (839SW2TRD, sold separately).
Uncompressed Audio Signal: MartinLogan engineers designed the SWT-2 with an uncompressed 16-bit/48-kHz sampling rate (exceeding the current CD standard of 16-bit/44.1-kHz), which proved more than adequate for use in the wireless transmission of low-frequency information below 200 Hz. And since the RF transmission is digital it is error-checked to ensure no deviation from the original signal.
2.4GHz Frequency Range: The SWT-2 operates in the 2.4GHz frequency range. Often, users of wireless technology complain about interference from other noise sources in the room (i.e. wireless local area networks, portable phones on the same frequency, even microwave ovens). MartinLogan engineers included an integrated RF power amplifier that provides a 15 dBm RF power level to reduce interference. Stray RF interference is also reduced through use of Adaptive FHSS operation.
40' Range: In a typical room situation, the SWT-2 receiver has a maximum unobstructed operating range of 40' (12.5m) depending on placement of course. If desired, its compact dimensions allow it to fit neatly into an audio/video rack.
RCA Connectors: The wireless receiver is fitted with stereo RCA jacks. The receiver plugs into the sub or LFE input on your powered subwoofer via stereo RCA (cable not included).
AC Power Adapter: The SWT-2 receiver includes an AC power adapter which will need to be plugged into an AC wall outlet.
- Input: 100-240V ~ 60/50Hz, 1.5A
- Output: 5V-1A
