Almost all the time, the projector is used together with a set of speakers whether for business meetings, indoor or outdoor movie marathons, video games, or any other presentations; it is, therefore, important to know the right way of connecting external speakers to the projector. Otherwise, your audience would be watching images without any sound effects and that would just be quite disappointing.
We have come up with a set of very simple steps which you should follow if you wish to connect your speakers to a projector.
First, you have to make sure that the projector, speakers, and other devices, connected to these two, are turned off.
Determine the audio OUT port of the projector; in most projectors, you may find both stereo and RCA ports.
Once you have located the right ports, you can now connect the speaker’s audiojack to the audio OUT port of the projector.
- A stereo-RCA converter may be necessary when connecting projectors which only have RCA ports and speakers which only have stereo jacks.
Afterwards, you may now turn on the projector, speakers, and other devices, if there are any.
By now, you should be able to hear the sounds through the speakers.
- If a receiver is used with the speakers, you will have to press the projector’s “source” button for you to be able to hear the sounds through the speakers.
