    I'm very new to this forum and am looking for some specific help. I recently bought a BIC PL-200 Acoustech Platinum 12" powered sub for my living room, which has a Denon AVR-E400 connected to four in-ceiling speakers. This is my first time owning a sub. Given the layout of the room, I also bought a wireless transmitter for the sub, opting for the Atlantic Technologies WA-50.

    Setup was easy, but as soon as I turned on the AT WA-50 wireless transmitter, the AirPlay music signal began to cut out for multiple seconds at a time. Turned off the wireless transmitter for the sub, and the music plays just fine again. I have spent hours getting the AirPlay signal to work well and am fairly confident the issue has to do with the wireless transmitter.

    Some other quick background before the questions. I have AT&T U-verse TV and internet. I recently put the AT&T modem/router into bridge mode so I could use my AirPort Time Capsule as the router instead. The AirPlay streaming has worked perfectly since making this switch

    My questions to the forum include the following:

    - Does anyone know of a way to use the wireless transmitter without having it interfere with the AirPlay or wifi? My wifi is set to 5 ghz, and the wireless transmitter is a 2.4 ghz transmitter. I'm by no means an expert in any of this. It seems like they shouldn't conflict, but they do.
    - Does anyone have another option or recommendation for a wireless transmitter for the sub that won't interfere with AirPlay and the wifi? I'd really like to avoid running a cable. Everything is nice and tidy in a cabinet except the sub.
    - If I have to run a cable, any recommendations on how to conceal it well? It would be along wood trim, wood floor, and in front of two French doors going out to a balcony.

    Thanks for the help in advance. The sub sounds great when it's working. I just need to figure out the connectivity.

    Is your receiver also connected to the network by means of WiFi ?

    No, the receiver (which is AirPlay equipped) is connected to the network via an ethernet cable.
