It delivers a wireless audio signal up to 24-bit/48kHz that is near lossless with a low-latency of less than 17ms. The KW1 has a wireless range of approximately 49' (15M). Pairing is intuitive and simple with a pairing button on the transmitter and receiver. Simply, press both buttons to pair the two devices.

Wireless Transmitter (TX): The KW1's wireless receiver features a set of stereo RCA jacks that allow for connection to your AV receiver's, preamplifier's, integrated amp's, or powered sub's subwoofer/LFE output.

You'll need an external USB/AC power adapter (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) or an AV receiver, preamplifier, integrated amp, or powered speakers with a USB (5V/1A) charging port to power the wireless receiver. The wireless receiver can simply be placed on top of your component or on a shelf next to your component.

Once the wireless receiver is plugged into the "Expansion" port, it is secured to the back of the powered sub by the included screws.

Note: The wireless receiver measures 1.5" (w) x 2.875" (h) x 1.125" (d).

Additional Wireless Receiver: The KEF KW1 Wireless Subwoofer Adapter comes with only one wireless receiver, but can support up two wireless receivers for a wireless connection of up to two compatible KEF powered subs. An additional KW1-RX wireless receiver is available and sold separately.
