The amplifier can be integrated into the speaker system or it can be an add on unit. Add on units connect to your TV and transmit a signal to a receiver. Clearly an integrated wireless system is more compact, but add on units are often best for those who already own a home theater system.The wireless transmission for these TV speakers can be at 900mhz, 2.4 GHz, or 5.8 GHz. Use of the 5.8GHz frequency eliminates interference problems that can occur with other wireless devices and household appliances. However, wireless speakers using the 2.4GHz frequency tend to have greater range if interference is not a concern.Certainly when choosing wireless speakers for TV, the user needs to consider the size of the room or space, what if any interference they will enounter, how much complexity and cost they want to deal with in set up, and sound quality.For a comprehesive look at the technology behind wireless speakers for TV and it's installation, this page can be a good resource.

      A home theater system is great, but the spaghetti that comes with it is often a nightmare to control. having wireless speakers is a great idea.

      You could also argue that unless you're using high quality oxygen-free cables, wireless will probably give you a better sound than the crackles coming through a cheap cable.

      I'm for anything that is wireless. Someone should open a store named "Wireless World." I would be their first customer. Still I think that most TVs nowadays have such good speakers you don't really need additions. To each his own.
