The JLINK TRX isn't just limited to subwoofers. It can be used to wirelessly connect any two line-level audio devices together. For example, you can send crystal-clear, full-range stereo sound from a source component like a CD player to your receiver or a pair of powered speakers across the room, or throughout your home. Each transmitter can support up to four receivers (additional receivers sold separately). Think of the possibilities. Each kit comes with AC power supplies for the transmitter and receiver. And if you have a JLINK compatible JL Audio subwoofer, you can use its built-in JLINK port to make a handy single-wire power and audio connection to the receiver using the supplied JLINK cable.

JL Audio JLINK™ TRX High-Fidelity Audio Transmitter & Receiver Kit

Crutchfield customer from San Francisco, CA on 10/18/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unfortunately, I can't comment much on the quality of the product. I ordered it because I needed a wireless transponder and the reviews I had read at different places were excellent. I was surprised that the device did not come with a subwoofer input, but just red/white inputs. I had to return the product because my subwoofer and AVR were not compatible with this.

Pros:

Cons:

Doesn't work--can't recommend

Tom from CA on 4/2/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Doesn't work at all. I wanted to use this to set up a subwoofer wirelessly. I switched out cables and switched channels and confirmed that the subwoofer worked when wired directly to the output of the receiver. I can not recommend this product at all. I will be returning it--I've messed with it for 2 weeks and it's not working.

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work at all

Low volume, thumps on wake up

Jason from Doylestown, PA on 3/25/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The signal is clear and does not drop out; however, this thing drives me nuts. It's volume is much quieter than when I run a cable direct to my sub. Tried 2 different subs and 2 sets of rcas. The signal is very weak when it comes to volume. The connection (2.4ghz) is fine, just very soft. So this forces me to crank up the sub output on my receiver which I'm not happy about. Also, it has a sleep function, so after a few minutes (literally) of no signal from the sub output, it goes into standby. The most annoying part: when it wakes up (usually still during quiet dialogue), it causes the sub to thump, and it's noticeable. Considering returning for the Martin Logan unit. Latency is great, but the weak volume and continual sleeping is rediculous. Not impressed, JL.

Pros: Wireless connectivity is great, never cuts out

Cons: Volume is very weak compared to sub being wired directly to receiver, needs +10db from receiver. Causes a thump when it wakes up from sleep (sleeps way too quickly, mid dialogue) and is disruptive.

The TRX's receiver is fitted with a stereo RCA output to connect to your playback device's RCA input.

JLINK Port: The JLINK TRX's receiver also features a proprietary JLINK port for direct connection with a JLINK compatible JL Audio product (like JL Audio's Dominion series powered subs; sold separately).

3-Channel Switch: The transmitter & receiver each have a 3-channel selectable switch.

Compact Design: The transmitter & receiver's compact design makes it easy to hide them out of sight.

AC Power Adapters: The JLINK TRX transmitter & receiver are each powered via standard household current using the included AC power adapters.

Will go well with my JL sub [ Johnny  Jun 19, 2016 ]
wider range of uses than Jlink TRX [ Gardner  Mar 13, 2016 ]
My wife was not happy with the big black speaker box being visible in the living room. Our other speakers are in the ceiling. This wireless kit should allow me to hide the speaker and not worry about running new wires. [ Eric  Jan 29, 2016 ]
