I would agree with Dimitris on this. My preference would be to have a separate machine wired to the audio system, and the tablet acts as a mere controller or interface, connected via WiFi. This should be possible on most platforms, using basic OSC protocol to a machine running Max or PD, or just a remote desktop interface.
If there needs to be some processing on the tablet, one approach we have used for telepresence/remote sensing is to send the audio via WiFi network to the remote machine connected to the audio hardware. We used the netsend~ project which functions well under Win and OSX in Max and PD. You can stream the raw audio, or there are compression options, which I think include flac. The code is available for modifications…
One key issue is the importance of latency in your experiment. Using the tablet as a remote controller would I think induce the lease latency, relative to these wireless audio streaming solutions.
Just my 2 cents.

I don't have experience with streaming audio wirelessly. But in case you want to avoid any problems altogether you could try having a device wired to the loudspeakers outputting sound, and a remote interface (e.g. your tablet) controlling the first device.
