The only thing that needs to be done is connecting the right cable to play audio from TV or any other source. Outdoor speakers can be connected to TV using audio cables which are available at electronic shops.

Here are some tips on how you can do the connections.

By Connecting Mini Jack Cable

If your outdoor speakers have an auxiliary input, all you have to do is connect one end of a minijack cable to it and the other end of the minijack cable into the appropriate audio out on your TV. These cables are usually supplied with most home entertainment systems. However if they are not there, you can easily pick them up at any electronics store.

Using The Amplifier Built In The Outdoor Speaker

Outdoor speakers that have an amplifier built into them often come equipped with either small screw or pin type terminals which can be connected directly to speaker wire running from an external amplifier source such as television which has RCA type inputs jacks for audio signal input connection. There are times when the outdoor speakers come with both types of connections already installed on them for this purpose.

By Digital Input That Can Be Connected To The Amplifier

If your television is a very high end model it may have a digital optical input that can be connected directly to the amplifier speaker terminals of your outdoor speakers. However, that connection would require using a miniplug-to-optical cable which you will need to buy at any electronics store.

Through FM Radio Or Stereo Receiver

Another option for connecting to TV is through an FM radio or stereo receiver if it has RCA type audio output jacks and one available antenna terminal. In this case, connect the right and left channel audio out from your receiver to the appropriate channels of your outdoor speaker system amp inputs . This method requires use of either coaxial or twin-lead speaker wire. If you use coaxial cable, remember to use an RCA/coax adapter which you can buy at any electronics store, plug the coax connector into your outdoor speaker amplifier inputs and screw down or tighten the connection with a pair of pliers.

Through Wireless Connection

The easiest way for connecting speakers to TV is wireless connection. There are several types of wireless systems like radio frequency (RF), infrared (IR), FM subcarrier system, UHF that allow for this type of connection without cables . However RF system offers better sound quality than others mentioned here. Also most modern TVs have built in RF modulator allowing easy external connections using standard RCA jacks on the rear panel the audio/video inputs .

By Using A Wireless FM Modulator

Outdoor speakers that do not have any audio input connections can be connected to television using a wireless FM modulator. These modulators receive the audio signal from outdoor speaker’s amplifier outputs and converts it into an FM radio frequency allowing you to connect the TV and its antenna or cable TV input with outdoor speakers through an unobstructed outdoor area.

Wireless Home Entertainment System

Outdoor speakers can also be connected to TV using a wireless home entertainment system. These systems use FM frequency for transmitting the audio signal from your stereo receiver or other sources to outdoor speakers. This method requires no cables but it will only work in areas where the FM frequency is not being used by other stations.

By Headphone Jack
