Wireless Speakers for TV?

177 14 December 2, 2019 at 07:15 PM
We have a 58" Sharp Roku TV in our bedroom with Bose [RCA connection] connected speakers. Opposite the wall we have it mounted to is our daughters room. Watching shows and movies while she's asleep is always a balancing act between just loud enough for us to hear and not so loud as to wake her up.

Is there a wireless way that we can connect the speakers to the TV, yet have them near our bed or even on top of our headboard? What parts would I need to do this? I'd also hope to avoid any lag in the wireless connection so that the sound and picture are sync'd.

Other ideas?

If I extended the RCA cables, is there a max length without degradation?

Not a lot of money to do this, but would like to address it soon.

Thanks for any help.

Speakers need power, so wireless or not, you are not going to be able to solve that with current equipment. And mounting the audio behind you is just wrong imo.

You could try getting an AVR\receiver with blutooth capability and a pair of wireless headphones, but all that will cost more money than it is worth in your current environment and not offer you a great experience imo. I would just lower the sound as much as is practical and\or mute the sound and turn on closed captions when you are watching in those conditions.

Expanding on this, why audio behind you is wrong is that dialog will likely be hard to understand. On a surround sound system, the rear and side channels don't contain the dialog/voice tracks, those come out the front. The higher frequency sounds are all directional, where as lower and bass frequencies are more unidirectional.

Personally I think headphones are the best answer here or watch TV in a different room.
