Let’s start this rundown with any manual connections you may need, the primary one being the AV receiver.
An AV receiver is an electronics component that sends video and audio signals to an output device from a source.
To make this work, you have to follow these simple steps:
- Turn off your speakers and projector.
- Plug the audio cables from your AV receiver to the audio out port of your projector. At the same time, plug the other connectors into the auxiliary In port on your AV receiver.
- Turn on your devices.
- Press the source button of your AV receiver until an alert sound is heard from your projector.
You may also follow the same steps for other connectors, such as those compatible with HDMI and VGA cables.
Connecting a projector to a soundbar is like connecting to stereo speakers, but you may have an additional connection option. In addition to a stereo audio jack and stereo RCA connectors, many soundbars include an optical option like TOSLINK.
If your projector and soundbar both support an optical connection, that’s the one you should use. The only exception is if your projector has an HDMI out and your soundbar has an HDMI in.
- Plug your Soundbar into power.
- Connect an audio cable to one of the output options on your projector.
- Connect the other end of the cable to your Soundbar.
- Turn the Soundbar on and adjust the volume to your liking.
If your projector has a low-quality built-in speaker, you will have a better listening experience if you mute it after connecting the soundbar.
Connectors are usually present in Stereo Speakers. You have to distinguish between the audio jack and coaxial cable.
Here’s how to connect your stereo speakers to your projector:
- Look for your projector’s audio out port. (Usually found at the rear of your projector).
- Connect your stereo cables to this open port.
- You may observe a success indicator through either the lighting up of your speakers or an alert sound shortly after.
If your projector supports Bluetooth, connecting a Bluetooth speaker is quick and simple. Here’s how to use your projector with a Bluetooth speaker:
- Turn on the Bluetooth speaker, and enable pairing mode.
- Using the settings menu on your projector, enable Bluetooth and search for the speaker.
- Accept the connection, and enter a pairing code if required.
- The speaker should connect automatically to the projector next time both are powered on.
