Connecting additional speakers to your TV is a great solution for improving sound quality. As a rule, standard speakers cannot boast of surround and clear sound, let alone a clear transfer of various sound effects. There are many options for connecting speakers - both wired and wireless models. With the help of additional musical equipment, you can take the viewing of your favorite films and TV series to the next level.
After synchronizing the TV with the speakers, the user will have access to sounds and effects that were not heard through standard speakers. This will make your movie experience more realistic. Moviegoers who value not only picture quality, but also sound accompaniment pair TV receivers with powerful speakers or full-fledged speaker systems.
Experts classify musical equipment, taking into account its functionality, technical characteristics and other parameters. The most widespread are active acoustic systems.
This type is characterized by the fact that manufacturers equip equipment with a built-in amplifier. This is an essential element for achieving optimum power and other quality parameters.
Passive speakers are also used and connected to the TV . This type of acoustic equipment does not have its own amplifier, so it will have to be purchased separately. This is a significant drawback compared to active speakers. However, with an additional amplifier, higher power can be achieved.
There are 2 main ways to connect speakers to TVs:
- connection using wires - the technique is mated using cables, inserting them into the appropriate connectors;
- wireless synchronization that occurs via Bluetooth or WI-FI.
To connect acoustic equipment to Samsung TVs, you can use one of the options depending on the TV receiver model and speaker capabilities.
How to connect wireless speakers?
More and more modern users are choosing wireless acoustics. Due to the absence of wires, it can be placed in any part of the room, the main thing is to maintain the optimal distance from the TV. Most models sync via Bluetooth. Currently, many computer speakers have been released, which are convenient to take along with a laptop or use as additional acoustics for televisions, mobile phones and other equipment.
Connecting a wireless headset is as follows:
- first you need to turn on the headphones and put them into pairing mode;
- then you need to open the settings on the TV, activate the Bluetooth module, after which the TV receiver will search for nearby devices, and the headset will appear in the list;
- select the gadget and confirm the pairing.
For synchronization without additional equipment, the TV must be equipped with the appropriate module. If the latter is missing, you need to purchase a special adapter, insert it into the port and activate. Modern models are connected via the USB port. Older TV receivers may not have this connector. In this case, you will need an adapter cord. Finding a suitable option is easy given the wide variety of cables.
In this case, synchronization occurs according to the above scheme, the only difference is that you need to use additional devices (adapter cable, adapter).
Note: if you are sure that the speakers are fully functional, but the connection does not occur, you need to check the activity of the TV's wireless module. This can be done in the hardware settings. Also, do not forget to periodically charge the speaker battery.
Some acoustics models can be connected via WI-FI wireless network . This is another convenient way to sync without cables. For pairing, the required module must be installed in the TV. To date, almost all Smart TV models are equipped with it. The connection is made in the same way as when using Bluetooth speakers.
Note: Each of the synchronization methods has its own advantages and disadvantages. If you are unsure of which option to choose, try each one.
How to connect with wire?
Of course, wireless connection is more convenient, but pairing with wires is more reliable.
Due to the fact that a sound amplifier is already built into the active speakers, there is no need to spend money on additional equipment. And also on the front panel there is a volume control. To connect such equipment to a TV, you just need to insert the cable into the appropriate connector.
Most models are paired via a 3.5mm jack. This is a standard option widely used by many manufacturers.
Through this port, not only ordinary speakers are connected, but also home theaters, powerful speakers and other musical equipment.
In the same way, you can connect the multimedia center to the TV receiver . The cable is connected to the TV through the OUT port, and the IN connector is selected on the audio equipment.
When pairing older type speakers or using an older TV model, tulip cables are often used. The cord is equipped with two or three colored plugs. To transmit a sound signal, red and white plugs are connected to the equipment. Pairing is done by color.
To connect a passive speaker system, you need a connecting cord and amplifier, which must be purchased separately. The main thing is that the power of the amplifier exceeds the indicator of the speakers by at least 30%.
Synchronization occurs according to a certain pattern.
- The first step is to connect the speakers to the amplifier . Each channel has a specific output. It will be easy to connect the equipment, since the ports are signed.
- After that, the receiver is synchronized with the TV . If everything is done correctly, the sound from the TV receiver will come through the speakers.
