Seems expensive for 200 watt sub.
How does it compare to the Infinity R12 for $170?

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.

Is it possible to pair a wireless sub, like this, with a soundbar that already has its own wireless sub? My inner teenager demands more bass

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.

Would think so, as long as your soundbar has an RCA output, the sub crossover could then be adjusted to filter out the higher frequency of the signal. I've thought about getting something like this to use with my "Sonos Connect" to add a sub to my living room and two Sonos 1's. The Sonos sub is ridiculously expensive even on sale.

Remember those old red white yellow audio/ video cables? The port would look like that, should be labled "sub out" or "lfe"

Thanks Maxed. Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of a wireless sub? Regardless, do you know if adding a second sub would make the system wireless sub give up/stop working?
