What If The Wireless Subwoofer Signal is Slowing Down My WiFi Speed?

Our soundbars utilize industry standard 5.8Ghz wireless chipsets to send audio wirelessly to the subwoofers. Why is the industry standard 5.8GHz? It is to avoid interference with 5-GHz Wi-Fi home routers, of which 99% of them operate on 5-GHz frequencies that are around the middle of the 5-GHz frequency spectrum. However, there is still a small risk of interference, which may result in slower/weaker WiFi connection and audio drop-out on subwoofer(s).

 

A simple fix will be to change the frequency that your router is operating at to avoid such interference (All routers come with multiple operating frequency options).
