common wireless speakers for both direct TV streaming and cable sources?

I would like to set up wireless stereo speakers to support two different A/V sources: Streaming video (e.g., netflix) directly to a Samsung JS8500 (hardwired network IP connected) whose built-in speakers currently provide the audio and cable video (e.g., shows via FIOS) provided by Motorola set-top (7100-2), Onkyo NR 737 (HDMI-ARC) and the JS8500. The Onkyo is also network hardwired. Currently I use two older Polk Audio speakers hardwired into the NR737 for cable audio (and DVD audio). I would like to replace the Polk speakers with either WiFi or Bluetooth speakers so that I can use the same speakers for both direct network streaming to the TV and cable cable transmission through the set-top box-nr737 combo. Both TV and Onkyo are on the same network and both claim support for Bluetooth. Is a common wireless (BT or WiFi) speaker set possible for these two different use scenarios? If so, what speakers and/or other apps are needed to handle this? Thanks. Andy
 
Your sources connect directly to the TV. Pair the speakers to the TV. To get stereo you will need a stereo pair rather than two mono speakers unless you use JBL which can be configured with their Connect+ app to work in stereo.
If the TV doesn't support BT then connect a bluetooth or RF audio transmitter to the audio output of the TV.
You don't need the Onkyo receiver or the Polk speakers.
