The Adorama page has a pic of the wireless pack that would plug in to the soundbar - it shows the cord and jack (RCA male) that would plug into the RCA female jack (if available) on your soundbar.

Quote from pixelpusher15 :
Wattage isn't everything. Woofer efficiency/design and cabinet design make up a large part of subwoofer performance.

The infinity you reference is a 300w sub but the rated frequency response is the same between these two. I'm sure they perform differently in room but on paper they aren't that different.
So based on your feedback looks like will you be paying extra 50$ for wireless feature since you are saying it's like the infinity.
Or just buy the Costco 12" for $150 and continue to save

Quote from JimBanville :
Frequency response is only half the equation. Maximum output at those frequencies before audible distortion is just as, if not more important. What good is a sub that is flat from 20hz to say 200hz if it's maximum output is limited to 80db?

With all that said, this isn't a terrible deal, but I'd get a dayton sub-1200 or sub-1500 and then use one of their wireless kits if I had no choice but to go wireless.
Yup yup that too. I couldn't find a max output level for the Infinity but the Klipsch is 116db. So you are getting probably 113db at 29hz. Not terrible for a $230 wireless sub. I personally would want that output below 25hz.

There is another deal from Adorama on a Klipsch sub that does ~115db @ 24hz and I've seen some reports of over 110db @ 20hz in room. It is $300 but isn't wireless, although you don't need to buy Klipsch's kit, you can use the Dayton Audio kit from parts express for only $60. Total it's $130 more but it is easily $130 more sub.

Not that this is for you, just an FYI to others looking at this or other subs

I need to connect rear speakers wirelessly. What is the best solution for that? Thanks in advance

Get a monolith 12 or 15 in instead. Save up if it is not in the budget.

The 12sw at Costco was on sale like two weeks ago at 150 and is back to the advertised 190 now.

Are you sure you wanna do that? It's way more expensive than running wires.
You need to transmit the audio from source, and install a receiver at the speakers. There are lots of those on Amazon. Then you'll need an amp to power the speakers. I recommend the $80 fosi bt20. It has built in Bluetooth so it is possible that if you put a Bluetooth transmitter on you surround channel's line level outputs, the Fosi can both receive and amplify the signal. You will lose some "fidelity" going wireless, but you may or may not notice it.

Super easy to set up and way more powerful than some of the other non-wireless subs that I've owned.

One guy has quoted $300 to run the wires through attic. I went into the attic and it is impossible for me to do it myself. My media room is almost inaccessible through attic.
