The cabling can be quite extensive, especially for home theatre systems with 5 or more individual speakers and a subwoofer. Especially the cabling of the rear speakers can add up to several meters of cable. But there are technical possibilities to either reduce the cabling or to create the surround sound virtually.
Radio instead of cable - wireless subwoofers
As the name suggests, wirelessly transmits the subwoofer signal between the AV system and the subwoofer via radio. The signal generated by the home theatre amplifier is transferred to a transmitter, which then transmits the signal to a receiver. The signal is transferred by a converter, which operates inside the transmitter. The receiver, in turn, converts the signal back and ultimately passes it to the subwoofer to which it is connected.
Teufel increasingly offers subwoofers, AV receivers and even entire systems with wireless signal transmission. Either transmitters and/or receivers are already integrated and/or have a slot for a module already prepared.

Teufel Rearstation - Rearboxes without cables.
More convenience through less cabling. The Teufel RearStation makes it possible to transmit two freely selectable channels to speakers via radio. Suitable for sound reinforcement of a second room or for wireless transmission of the surround channels of a 5.1. home cinema system.
Virtual Surround Sound - the facts
Virtual Surround technologies generate surround sound even if no real surround sound system is set up in the room.

Since the introduction of Dolby Virtual Speaker in the early 2000s, a 5.1 system is no longer the only solution for surround sound.
