If you’re like us, you’ll want to watch the best movies in the comfort of your own home. Unfortunately, our TVs don’t do the job. Don’t get us wrong, the picture looks good. The sound, on the other hand, doesn’t. Because our TV speakers are small and squeaky, they sound bad when we listen to music and movies. As for laptops, the same thing is true The good news is that you can move to a better listening experience with the speakers you already own, or you can buy new ones. They’re worth it, we’re sure. When it comes to setting up your home theater, even cheap multimedia speakers that cost less than Rs. 2,000 can do more than your TV’s tiny speakers can, no matter how high-end the TV is.
As a bonus, we want to show you how easy it is to connect your TV to your speakers. There are a lot of ways to connect TVs to speakers, and we show you how to set up your own.
Know this before you start:
As a rule, you should keep the instructions for your TV and sound system near you at all times. If you can’t find them, you can get them from the manufacturer’s web site and download them. As you read this, keep in mind that we are talking about connecting output connectors on your TV to input connectors on your speakers. The manuals can help you figure out where these ports are and what your TV can do. It might be a good idea to think about some other things, too. For example, you might need some help setting up your TV to use external speakers, not the small ones we’re trying to get rid of. If you don’t have that option, you could turn down the TV’s volume all the way, and use the volume control on your speakers to turn them up or down, as well.
RCA cables are used to connect things together.
A simple way to connect your TV to your speaker system is to use RCA wires. Only two channels of stereo sound, left and right, can be heard on them. If you have a simple set of stereo or 2.1 speakers, this can work. Surround sound isn’t going to work if you have surround sound speakers. There are two pairs of cables and connectors. They are usually marked red and white, but they can also be black and white. There are red and white ports on the back of your TV where you can plug these cables in. They go to the input ports on one of your speakers, or the subwoofer unit, in the case where you have a 2.1 system. You should read the manual for the TV and the speakers to find out where these ports are.
Connecting 3.5mm analog cables
In case your TV doesn’t have RCA connectors for audio output, it may have a headphone out port that you can use (3.5mm port). This can be used to connect your TV to the speaker. All of these things have the same type of connector. For this, you’ll need to use a 3.5mm audio jack on the TV end and an RCA jack on the speaker end. Use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable if your speakers also have 3.5mm inputs, instead of RCA plugs, so you can connect them. This method too is ideal for basic multimedia speakers but you can’t get surround sound using this cable.
Using an HDMI (ARC) cable, you can connect your TV to a receiver or sound bar.
HDMI is one of the best ways to send surround sound because it doesn’t lose any quality. RCA and 3.5mm methods, on the other hand, do. Surround sound speaker setups, receivers, and soundbars that don’t have HDMI ports are likely to be able to do this. When you buy a new TV that has an HDMI port, you also need to make sure it has an HDMI-ARC port. An HDMI cable can be used to connect two things together.
Using an HDMI cable, you can connect your receiver or soundbar to your TV and the TV to your receiver or soundbar.
A receiver or amplifier that has HDMI input ports can also use HDMI cables to connect to the TV. If your TV doesn’t have an HDMI output port, you can use an HDMI cable to send your laptop, gaming console, set-top box, or other source to the receiver/amplifier or soundbar. Then, you can use another HDMI cable to send the signal from that source to your TV. If you want to switch between different inputs, you can use the receiver’s or soundbar’S remote control instead of the TV’s remote control. If you use the same speaker setup, you’ll still be able to hear all of the sound. if you don’t have HDMI-ARC or if you want to play music on your receiver or amplifier-powered speakers without having your TV on all the time.
The optical cable is used.
People rarely use optical cables, but they work the same as HDMI, which is what they’re most likely to use. If your TV has an optical output, you can connect it from the TV to the receiver or soundbar if it can. You will be able to send surround sound if you do this. People usually don’t notice these cables as much as thick HDMI or complicated RCA cable setups do. Depending on how your TV or source is set up, you may need to change things to make sure the optical cable is used to send audio.
Those were some of the easiest ways to connect your TV to your speakers, but there are many more. We suggest getting a good soundbar or a surround sound speaker, amplifier, and receiver set up. And if you haven’t yet changed your TV’s picture quality, we think you should do it now. We have a lot of articles on how to improve the picture quality of your TV in just a few minutes, and also a more advanced method.
