About the Klipsch Reference R-10SWi

High-quality bass made simple

Klipsch knows how much fun it is to have your own home theater. They also know that running a long cable from your receiver to your sub can be challenging. So they've equipped the R-10SWi with wireless signal transmission — this power-packed sub can deliver deep, impactful bass anywhere you have a power outlet. 

High-quality bass made simple

Klipsch knows how much fun it is to have your own home theater. They also know that running a long cable from your receiver to your sub can be challenging. So they've equipped the R-10SWi with wireless signal transmission — this power-packed sub can deliver deep, impactful bass anywhere you have a power outlet. 

Klipsch R-12SWi Reference wireless powered subwoofer

The wireless transmitter plugs into your receiver's sub output, and sends high-quality bass across the room.

How it works

This sub's "secret sauce" is how Klipsch transmits low-frequency effects. The included wireless transmitter plugs into the sub output on the back of your receiver (sometimes labeled LFE). Simply plug the transmitter and the sub into an A/C power source and you're ready to rock. 

Wireless signal transmission offers flexible placement

There are two huge benefits to using a wireless subwoofer. Not having to snake a long sub cable across the floor keeps kids, pets, and gear safe. And having placement flexibility for your sub can significantly improve your system's bass response. We recommend trying your sub out in a few different spots around the room to see where you get the best performance.

Features

Wireless Receiver & Transmitter: The Klipsch Reference series R-10SWi powered sub features a built-in wireless receiver and comes with an external wireless transmitter that plugs into your AV receiver's LFE output. Thanks to this 2.4GHz wireless connectivity, your receiver can now send its LFE audio signal to the R-10SWi powered sub wirelessly (no subwoofer cable required between receiver and sub). Wireless range is approximately 30' at CD-quality level.

Note: Both, the powered sub & wireless transmitter will require AC power.

10" Woofer: The Klipsch Reference series R-10SWi powered sub is fitted with a powerful 10" copper-spun IMG (injected molded graphite) front-firing woofer for deep bass. The copper-spun IMG woofer is exceptionally light while being extremely rigid, providing remarkable low frequency response with minimal cone breakup and distortion. The front-firing woofer gives you greater placement flexibility than a down-firing woofer.

150 Watt Amp: The Klipsch R-10SWi powered sub employs an all-digital 150 watt RMS (300 watt Peak) amplifier for high efficiency and dynamic bass performance.

MDF Cabinet: The R-10SWi is housed in a durable MDF cabinet and finished with a brushed black polymer veneer. The MDF enclosure is rigid and protects against unwanted vibration and distortion.

Rear Firing Port: The R-10SWi's enclosure uses a bass reflex design with a rear-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass.

Controls: The level control, low pass crossover, and phase control allow you to blend the powered subwoofer's low-frequency tones with your system's other speakers, as well as establish the ideal level of bass.

  • Level Control: The level control adjusts the subwoofer's volume relative to the rest of your home audio system. After the sub's level control has been set, the volume control of your AV receiver will be the volume control for both the Klipsch powered subwoofer and your connected loudspeakers.
  • Low Pass Crossover: The variable lowpass crossover is adjustable from 40-120Hz. The crossover point chosen determines where low bass frequencies are "handed-off" from your AV system's loudspeakers to the Klipsch powered subwoofer. Set the crossover point based on the size of your systems' main left/right speakers.
  • Phase Control: This control is used to acoustically match the subwoofer's output to your main speakers. Select the position either 0˚ or 180˚ in which your subwoofer has more output at the listening position.

LFE/RCA Inputs: If you prefer a hardwired connection, the Klipsch R-10SWi powered subwoofer is also equipped with a pair of line-level RCA-type inputs to connect the sub to your receiver or integrated amplifier.

  • LFE Input: Most of today's AV receivers have a line-level subwoofer output (LFE). If your receiver has an LFE output, connect one end of a subwoofer cable (sold separately) to this output and connect the other end of the cable into the powered subwoofer's line-level input labeled "LEFT/LFE". Set the powered sub's built-in crossover to "LFE" with this type of connection.
  • Stereo Input: In absence of a subwoofer (LFE) output on your receiver, as an alternative hookup, you can connect Left & Right channel pre-amp outputs from the receiver to both the "Left/LFE" and "Right" inputs on the powered subwoofer.

LED Indicator: The front-mounted LED power indicator lets you know when the sub is powered on or off. The LED will light green when the powered subwoofer is on and receiving a signal. If the LED is dark and not lit, the powered sub is off.

Auto Power On/Off: The powered subwoofer will automatically turn On when it senses an audio signal. It will automatically go into "Standby mode" after 15-20 minutes with no audio signal. You can also choose to turn the powered sub On or Off manually from the rear-switch on the back.

Placement: Klipsch powered subwoofers are designed to reproduce deep bass and deliver the impact that makes your movies and music come alive. For optimum performance, place your subwoofer in a corner of the room on the same wall as your front channel speakers. Please note that room placement can have a dramatic effect on the performance of your powered subwoofer. Corner placement, as suggested above, will increase the amount of bass output, while placing the subwoofer along the middle of a wall, or out in the room will decrease the amount of bass output.

Q
Is this wireless subwoofer compatible w the Klipsch Reference R-51PM Bookshelf self powered speakers? But I'll note that I am not using a receiver, it's just a simple turntable setup going into the speakers. Is that possible?

Byron Dean M.: I cannot comment regarding Yamaha Music Cast, and all my home theater speakers - other than the Klipsch subwoofer - are hard-wired. I do, however, use Chromecast to input signals to my Onkyo (from both Android and Apple sources) and have had no interference issues whatsoever with the Klipsch. Good luck!

Gabriel, I am unclear what you are trying to do. The subwoofer is either directly connected to the receiver via subwoofer cable or wirelessly. Mine is connect wirelessly and it works great. Your floor speaks would also be connected to your receiver. The subwoofer will work with any speaker, just a matter of what you prefer to listen to.

Q
How does the auto-on/auto-off feature work? Will it automatically turn off if the wireless adapter is on but the receiver is off?
[ Justin  Feb 12, 2020 ]
5 answers
A
Yes.
[ BRUCE  Feb 16, 2020 ]  Staff
A
The auto-on/off feature works by detecting an audio signal being transmitted by the wireless adapter, which is always on. The sub will deactivate after a period of time with no detectable signal. In my case, that circuit became unreliable over time and the sub activated and deactivated continually, so I had to disable auto-on/off, unfortunately.
[ John  Feb 12, 2020 ]  Staff
A
I cannot answer your question as I do not own this subwoofer.
[ William  Feb 12, 2020 ]  Staff
A
Yes, it will auto off when the receiver is off. The auto on/off is controlled by the signal level coming from the receiver to the adapter. If the adapter is on but is not seeing a signal from the receiver it will shut the sub down.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't, but be aware that there are four foot pads on the bottom (looks like they can easily be removed with a screwdriver (important to have those on to prevent vibrations). Also note there is an airport in the back, so you will need some space for the back blow-out..

if the receiver( sub out) has RCA plugs left and right where does the wireless receiver plug in as it has one wire or this subwoofer cant be used ?
[ Bob  Dec 01, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
I cannot answer this question, but I have two comments: (1) I find it very hard to believe this subwoofer cannot be used with your receiver, I just don't know which plug to use, HOWEVER (2) I have never heard of "L" and "R" subwoofer output jacks - I do not believe sound waves at this frequency are stereophonic or directional - please make sure they are not actually inputs for two separate subwoofers #1 and #2 (which is what I have).
[ BRUCE  Dec 16, 2019 ]  Staff
A
We would have to check the receiver's setup to be sure but if your receiver is designed so that both of those preamp outputs need to be used with one sub, then Josh's idea of using an RCA Y adapter is the solution. Feel free to contact an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to discuss this and check
[ Paul  Dec 13, 2019 ]  Staff
A
My receiver has a single RCA plug on the back called Sub Woofer Pre out which I plug the sign RCA jack into... check to see if the TWO RCA subs you have are to allow of TWO (2) different subwoofers for you system and you would just plug into one of them. Two RCA plugs doesn't make sense to me for a subwoofer because there is not a left and right channel for the subwoofer.
[ Glenn  Dec 12, 2019 ]  Staff
A
The manual of the receiver "should" tell you which you should use if you're only using one sub. It's a pretty common thing to only have one sub. Or you can buy a "y" adapter, that would work too.

Steve, I have texted my wife to ask her to measure the power cord. If I don't hear form her, I will measure it when I get home and reply later this evening if that's OK.. I actually have two of these subwoofers - one in my upstairs "media room" which is about 15'x18' and one downstairs in a cabinet in my living room area (not ideal placement down there). In both areas, they easily fill the room with plenty of bass. The downstairs has 11' ceilings and is a big space. I also have 6 Klipsch CDT-5800-C IIs installed downstairs and they fill up the space and sound great.

Q
What is the range of the wireless signal? Would it pass through a brick wall to another location about 20 feet away?
[ rayray  Jul 30, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
Hello, mine was located 40 feet away and going through a double insulated wall with no issues, the sounds was awesome. The system uses the 2.4GHz signal to broadcast, which is the same type used for cordless home phones. Klipsch doesn't give range specifications, but my past experience using devices with this type of signal, I have found it works very well going through structures. Not knowing your type of brick wall--If it was me, I'd install it--I bet it will work fine. I hope this was helpful! Frank

Hi Luis, thank you for your question! The Klipsch Reference R-10SWi subwoofer is compatible with the Marantz NR1609 receiver. You have the option of using a wired connection to your receiver through the subwoofer preamp output, or you can use the sub wirelessly with the included wireless transmitter. This sub will also be a great match up with your Klipsch RP4000F speakers. Feel free to chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. They will be happy to answer any other questions you may have!

I have this set up and paired with Klipsch R-15M and R-14M in my surround system. It works well with them. There is a minor delay with it activating upon initial start up - and that's my only complaint. Being wireless is a greater benefit for me so the delay is no big deal.

Why does Crutchfield charge sales tax to customers in California now?
[ C  Apr 01, 2019 ]

The Supreme Court recently passed a law allowing state governments to mandate online sales retailers to collect sales tax even when they don't have a physical presence. CA (along with many other states) have required we now collect tax at the point of purchase. If you have questions or take issue you can contact your local state government representative.

I have this sub to connect to a edifier bookshelf speaker set that has a sub out port. The transmitter doesn't connect to this since it's lfe I think, the bookshelf speaker has a l/r ports and a cox port too, what should I do too make it work?
[ Austin  Mar 02, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
I have two Klipsch sub's used in different applications. But in both cases, the amplifier source has an RCA-type connector for the output to the subwoofer. I have looked at the web for those Edifier speakers and I can find no documentation about what the connector is--clearly not an RCA. "LFE" does not refer to the connector type, but rather the signal type--in this case "Low Frequency Effects". Not sure what I can tell you other than perhaps get some technical advice from the Edifier folks. And the "COX" is an input to your bookshelf set--same RCA-type connector, but the signal it will receive has to be digitally encoded somewhat like what would come through the optical connector. Neither of these latter will do you any good connecting to a sub woofer.

[ George  Nov 28, 2018 ]

A
It all depends on your amp! I run both my subs through my Yamaha RX-V673, which has connections for two subs. You won't need a wireless control center if your amp is a newer model. Hope this helps, the sub is fantastic, nice not having to hard wire them. If you have to hard wire your looking at the wrong item.
[ DENNIS  Nov 29, 2018 ]  Staff
A
I see no reason to believe that you couldn't run two subs off of one transmitter. You press and hold the sync button for 3 seconds to pair. Just make sure both subs are powered up when syncing. Not sure that two would offer any additional benefit over one. Obe sub can give you overwhelming unidirectional bass even in a hollow room. I keep the gain on mine set around a quarter of the way up.
[ Terry  Nov 28, 2018 ]  Staff
A
I don't know. Wow, the thought never even crossed my mind to use two of these. One does the trick for me and I chose to hard wire it. If you feel you need two subwoofers, maybe you should consider a larger one with more power. Remember, the low frequencies aren't directional in nature. Cheers!

[ Bruce  Nov 26, 2018 ]  Staff
A
I live in a country with 120V/60Hz AC power. The R-10SWi I purchased last year says "AC IN 100-240V - 50/60Hz 2A" on the back (and the 2A must be a maximum spec since such would vary depending upon input voltage). Hence, at least the one I purchased is dual-voltage capable. There is no external transformer--so if you will use this with a 220/240V system, the power cord will need to have an adaptor or will have to be specified for that country.

The subwoofer has a left and right RCA line in. In order to use it wired, your receiver will need preamp outputs. If your receiver has a sub output, wireless is the way to go. If your receiver has neither preamp or sub outputs, the subwoofer will not be compatible.

Yes, it is optional. I didn't use it at first, then I changed my mind. Sounds great both ways.

Yes thank it is, but I hear no difference with or without wire. I use 2 on my set-up wireless. Great price too! Good for movies and music , used with Denon a/v receiver set up with atmos speakers .

It was included the purchase price you can't go wrong with Klipsch

It can be hard wired if you wish, but the wireless works so well it would be more pragmatic to use it. This is not a bluetooth connection. The unit come with it's own transmitter that plugs into the speaker output. Couldn't be easier to set up.

The wireless feature is optional but you need to buy the sub woofer cable to connect it in the wired configuration separately.
[ mohit Philip  Dec 01, 2017 ]  Staff

Yes. I have mine connected via cable to my AVR and have not used the wireless feature.

Q
Can I use two Klipsch wireless subwoofer on a onkyo 656 receiver?
[ Thang  Nov 17, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Sure! Since your Onkyo TX-NR656 receiver is fitted with two subwoofer outputs, you can connect (up to) two of the Klipsch R-10SWi subwoofers in your system. For more details or to discuss further, feel free to get in touch with an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks! :)

Q
Could I use this sub ( R 10 SWI) with Klipsch RP 160 Bookshelf speakers and a RP 250 c center channel speaker?

I have this sub paired with Klipsch R-15M bookshelf speakers, Klipsch R-1650 in ceiling speakers and a Denon AVR-S530BT Receiver. As long as your receiver accepts or has an input for a sub, your speakers should work with this sub.
[ William  Sep 25, 2017 ]  Staff

As long as your receiver has a sub output port you should be fine. Most newer receivers have a calibration function, which you'd need to do to tune for your room. I think you'll find the improvement of your audio will be incredible.
[ DAVID  Sep 23, 2017 ]  Staff
A
Yes as long as you have a receiver or something that it couldn't hook up to it will work fine
[ Kevin  Sep 23, 2017 ]  Staff
A
Absolutely I think you'll be very happy with this sub as long as the receiver has a pre sub Outlet I would highly recommend it
[ G  Sep 23, 2017 ]  Staff
A
I would think so. I use it with the R-15M and R-14M along with the RP250 and it adds the depth that is missing with those smaller speakers.

Yes - I've been using it wired for several months with no problem.
[ Ryan  Jul 05, 2017 ]  Staff

Yes, it can be. My Bluetooth dongle got damaged so started using it via Wire. However, I would say if the wire is not grounded you will hear a "DUB" sound for evry song or channel change.

Will the wireless feature of this sub work if there is no line of sight? My amp is in an inclosed cabinet and the sub would be in the room.

Hi Mike, I recently purchased a complete Klipsch surround system that included this sub woofer. I have my Yamaha receiver and the R-10SWi in a entertainment cabinet. The sub is 30 feet away and it works fine. The remote aspect is Bluetooth which does not require line of sight for operation.
[ PETE W  Feb 14, 2017 ]  Staff
A
Yes. This is my exact scenario. It works great. There is a slight delay, maybe 1 second, when the audio initially begins while the sub is waking up from standby mode. After this, the sound is in sync with the main drivers.
[ Jacob  Feb 13, 2017 ]  Staff

Hi My situation is the same and mine works fine. My distance of separation is about 30 feet and it does fine
[ Rick  Feb 13, 2017 ]  Staff

Yes, my amp is in a closet down the hall.
[ Debby  Feb 13, 2017 ]  Staff

Should work just fine. My receiver is also in an enclosed cabinet and the sub is about 25 feet away, no issues what so ever.
[ RICHARD  Feb 13, 2017 ]  Staff

In my experience, yes. Since it is a wireless (not infra red) connection, it behaves like a wireless router in your home network. The type and amount material obstructing the signal will dictate the signal strength received by the subwoofer.
[ sergei  Feb 13, 2017 ]  Staff

Not sure. Mine is across the room from the home theater receiver.

Q
I see the MartinLogan SW2-TRD and the Klipsch R-10SWi both operate at 2.4 GHz. Will that interfere with my Siemens Gigaset 2.4GHz wireless home telephone system?
[ John  Nov 12, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
The 2.4GHz range is commonly used with other household electronics (such as cordless/wireless phones) which can create interference if too many are installed in one home or area. However, both Klipsch and MartinLogan specially designed their wireless subwoofer transmitters & receivers to reduce any potential interference or "cross-talk" with other household electronics; so I wouldn't expect any issues to arise with your Siemens phone system. I hope that helps!
