Klipsch Wireless Subwoofer Review and Unboxing 12″ and 10″ (R-12SWi / R-10SWi)

Buy it on Amazon – http://lon.tv/ke6c5 (affiliate link) See more on my main channel! http://lon.tv/ht – When I first plugged this in and booted up a Star Wars movie it shook everything – including my ceiling tiles! Definitely a lot of power in this sub and best suited for a larger space. The 10 inch version is better (and less expensive) for smaller spaces.

The wireless transmitter works great – zero configuration and plug and play. I noticed no difference between wired and wireless connections (the subwoofer supports both). I also like the cool copper color of the speaker. Looks nice with great build quality.

My only suggestion for future products would be to include an option for rear satellite speakers. Having the ability to connect rear speakers plus the sub wirelessly would make this a great option for folks looking for an alternative to the all-in-one soundbar systems.

I have used “Sonos” system for a while, it is great but kind of pricey. But I only have stereo setup and no subwoofer. I was looking at 2.1 speakers from Klipsch for my computer but ended up getting Altec Lansing, I got hold of the cheap. If you have no subwoofer for a computer you should get that, even a 2.1 system with a subwoofer is much better than simple stereo speakers.

Speaking of subwoofers and bass, do you get any bass when using the HDHomerun on the Shield? I was watching the Daytona 500 yesterday and although i was geting sound 5 channels, i wasnt getting anything out of my sub. Everything else i play though it (YouTube, Netflix, Hulu ext) i get bass but nothing out of the HDHomerun beta app. Have you noticed this?

Is there any way to connect this subwoofer directly to tv wirelessly ?

Rud Dog says:

Please be aware there are two types of Klipsch wireless bass speakers one is the standard wireless and the other is WISA. Can not recommend the WISA unit from y usage and experience. Mentioning this because they appear to look identical.

I don’t think I’d ever buy a klipsch subwoofer again. I went through several on a computer 5.1 system.

Klipsch are great at making speakers but their amps lifespan is usually very short. They’re also kinda pricy for what you’re getting.

Though the wireless part of it is kinda handy.

Would have been nice to hear music with the sub and without the sub. Good review though.
