JL Audio JLINK™ RX
Add-on receiver for JLINK wireless subwoofer kit
Our take on the JL Audio JLINK™ RX by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Add a second sub — wirelessly
If you already have a subwoofer with JL Audio JLINK transmitter connected to your home theater receiver, this add-on receiver lets you add a second one. The JLINK RX receiver connects to the LFE input, and gives you 100 feet of wireless range for flexible placement. Just remember that you'll need to plug this receiver into an AC outlet.
Think a second sub sounds like overkill? Here's why Crutchfield's home speaker guru — and my desk neighbor — Kramer Krane says it could help in certain systems and rooms: "Adding a second subwoofer can fill in those gaps where bass response is weak. This helps make every seat in your home theater a good one, with plenty of tight, deep bass."

Overview: JL Audio's JLINK RX can receive high-fidelity sound broadcast from a JLINK transmitter (sold separately) as part of JL Audio's TRX transmitting/receiving kit (sold separately). Using state-of-the-art technology, JL Audio's JLINK TRX wireless audio transmitter & receiver kit can deliver pure, high-fidelity sound from one source component to your playback device or from your receiver/amplifier to a powered sub, wirelessly and effortlessly. It offers outstanding fidelity for full-range & subwoofer applications. Up to 4 JLINK RX receivers can be paired to a single JLINK transmitter, allowing a single sound source to be transmitted to multiple listening areas.
Note: The JLINK RX is an add-on receiver designed specifically to be used with the JLINK TRX kit and cannot be used with another brand of transmitter or as a stand-alone device.
2.4GHZ Wireless Technology: By broadcasting with 2.4 GHz wireless technology, the JLINK system lets you wirelessly connect any two line-level audio devices together, without any cables between them. Now you can send crystal clear, stereo sound from a source component (like your CD player, TV, etc) to a receiver, preamp or powered loudspeakers. All done wirelessly, up to 100' away without needing to route or hide long expanses of signal cables.
Bit-Perfect Wireless Technology: JL Audio's JLINK RX wireless audio receiver offers bit-perfect digital PCM stereo reception that is CD-quality (16-bit/48kHz) with low latency (14 mS). Its frequency response is rated at 16Hz to 22kHz (+0/-1dB).
RCA Outputs: The JLINK RX's RCA-type output jacks connect to your playback device's RCA inputs, which are provided with most audio equipment.
JLINK Port: The JLINK RX'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 bottom of the RX receiver has a 3-position switch for choosing an operating frequency band. When the RX and a transmitter are on the same band, they can communicate with each other.
AC Power Adapters: The JLINK RX receiver is powered via standard household current using the included AC power adapters.
