Assuming that your data are all integers between -2047 and 6144, you
could use Mod. Here is some data:
In[11]:=
data=Table[Random[Integer,{-2047,6144}],{10}]
Out[11]=
{5745,-1569,4196,3299,5796,1621,596,-1299,1074,3547}
Your method (modified with <= instead of < so that the last entry is
processed):
In[12]:=
y=data;
For[i=1,i<=Length[y],i++,
If[y[[i]]>2048,y[[i]]=y[[i]]-2048,y[[i]]=y[[i]]+2048]];
y
Out[14]=
{3697,479,2148,1251,3748,3669,2644,749,3122,1499}
Using Mod:
In[15]:=
Mod[2048+data,4096,1]
Out[15]=
{3697,479,2148,1251,3748,3669,2644,749,3122,1499}
If you want 2048->0 instead of 2048->4096, use
Mod[2048+data,4096]
