Watch our video on Dolby Atmos Shop Dolby Atmos Wireless surround speakers People frequently ask us about wireless surround speakers. No home theater speaker is truly wireless, because it will need to get power from somewhere. However, some home theater systems feature a wireless transmitter that sends audio signals from the receiver to the speakers in the rear of your room. This eliminates the need to run speaker wire from the front to the back of your room. These speakers usually connect to a wireless receiver that goes in the back of your room and plugs into an AC wall outlet for power. Shop wireless surround speakers Sound bars Sound bars are simple to set up, and they’re great when you don’t have a lot of room for speakers. Many consist of one long, slim speaker that sits beneath your TV plus a subwoofer to provide low-frequency punch. You get much better sound than your TV’s built-in speakers can offer.
