Do you connect speakers to receiver or amplifier?
Depends on what your definition of "receiver" is, but most of the time - to the amplifier.
if the receiver is some form of a device that receives some signal, and then decodes it to audio, then the receiver will hook into the amplifier, which in turn will drive the speakers (so the speakers go to the amplifier)
if, on the other hand, the receiver is a part of a wireless connection between the amplifier and speaker, then it really serves the role of a cable, so in essence you're again connecting the speakers to an amplifier (only using the receiver as an intermediary)
You would have to specify your case.
It depends on the speakers. Bose computer speakers are not designed to connect directly to speaker inputs on your receiver, as they have their own amplifier. All Bose home stereo speakers can be connected.
I want to buy surround with sub speakers and receiver what kind of anp do i need to power all these speakers?
The receiver is the amplifier for all the speakers, except usually the sub, which is most common with its own amplifier.
Regular passive (non-amplified) speakers will need to be connected to a power amp (an old stereo receiver can do this). Connect the line out of the computer to the aux or tape in of the receiver, and then connect speaker cables from the receiver to each of the speakers.
You can connect 8 ohm speakers to a 2 ohm amplifier, but you are not going to achieve rated power. It is better to use the exact speakers designed for the amplifier.
If the TV has an audio output, connect this to a stereo amplifier, and then connect speakers to this. Modern TV's don't have amplifiers for external speakers.
I always try to match an amplifier or receiver that is rated within the following range: from .8 times to 1.5 times the RMS rating of the speakers. The impedance of the speakers should not be rated below 5 ohms unless the amplifier/receiver is conservatively rated as 4 ohm stable.
You need to connect the DVD player and speakers to an amplifier.
You could use an external cable or satellite receiver and connect speakers to that.
The TV will need to have AUDIO OUTPUT jacks to connect to the speakers or a amplifier to power the speakers and subwoofer.
The Purtone HPD-710 system consists of passive speakers that need an amplifier to drive them. Unfortunately, even the subwoofer needs an amp. An Emerson TV will not have speaker outputs, it will have RCA line-level outputs. You must plug the TV into a surround-sound receiver to amplify the signal. Then connect speaker cables from the receiver to the Purtone speakers. Since the sub has no amp, you will need a receiver with a subwoofer amp… Read More
Can you connect your Philips 7.1 channel DVD player to Sony home theater speaker setup or you need to buy home theater with DVD player?
If your speakers do not have an amplifier (excluding the subwoofer, which almost always has one), you will need a surround amplifier to power them. The DVD player connects to this receiver.
Will you get 5.1 audio if you connect a sony DVD player to a 46 inch plasma tv with an HDMI cable and or coaxial cable?
No, you will need a surround sound receiver or amplifier with 5 speakers and a subwoofer to hear surround sound.
If your TV has RCA audio outputs, you can connect an amplifier to these outputs to plug in speakers. If it has a headphone jack, you can connect computer-type amplified speakers to this output.
You should have outputs in the back of the amplifier.

Running all these speakers at the same time might damage the amplifier. There are switchers made to handle this task.
If you have a DVD player and just the speakers, no. You will need a system with an amplifier. Some of the Onida systems include this. Connect the digital audio output of the DVD player to the amplifier.
You need a receiver or processor that routes the tv tuner thru to those speakers, unless, you have that built into your tv. Connect the audio-out input from the tv to the 'tv in' or 'aux' or 'vcr', etc. Then, connect those speakers to the appropriate jacks on the receiver....good luck!..BB
If you have more speakers than the receiver has outlets for, you can't use them. Connecting more speakers than the amplifier is designed to handle will shorten the life of the amplifier and possibly result in a over-current shutdown.
You will need RCA audio cables in order to connect your TV to your hi fi speakers. Connect the cables to the cables to the audio out on your television. Connect the other end to the axillary input port on your receiver.

Yes, you can, if you have an amplifier. Connect the speakers to the amplifier and the amp to the line-out of your PC's sound card. You can use standalone amplifiers or even built-in amplifiers from different sound systems. Just make sure you have an input and an output you can use.
Can you connect a receiver speaker jack using banana connectors to wireless headphones using audio cable with rca jacks?
No. The wireless transmitter is expecting a line level input. The banana plugs are power amplifier level, and you will damage your transmitter. If you add the model of your receiver/amplifier into the discussion tab above, we can tell you where to connect it.
How do you connect speakers that have an RCA cable coming out of them taken from a PC surround sound system to a surround sound receiver its a kenwood receiver with copper cable outlets?
If the speakers are not powered (they don't plug into the wall), you can cut off the RCA plug, strip back the wires to a negative and positive lead, and connect them to the speaker posts of the receiver.
Do you need to have a receiver for the Panasonic SP-PK21BS surround sound I have a samsung bluray player that has speaker connections will that work?
The Panasonic SC-BT series (there is no SP-series) are theatre-in-a-box systems with a disc player with built-in amplifier. You don't need a receiver for this. Your Samsung would also have its own amplifier if it has speaker outputs. These two systems wouldn't connect to each other, but you may be able to use the Panasonic's speakers with the Samsung.
be more specific. i dont know what you have. but generally... all speakers will plug into the receiver/amplifier. all your sources (blu-ray player, cable box, ect...) will either go to A.) directly to the receiver and you must connect the receiver to your tv. (all connections will be HDMI if the system is current. B.) connect all devices to your tv and plug the surround sound to the tv's audio output jack... usually rca (red… Read More
Some of the better TVs have external speaker connectors on the back, most do not. If the TV has audio output connectors you can connect a stereo audio amplifier and speakers to these. If this works, go into the audio menu and turn off the TVs internal speakers.
Bose speakers designed for home theater / home stereo applications can be powered by any stereo or surround receiver with sufficient power output for the ratings of the speakers. Bose speakers for car stereo applications must be powered by Bose amplifiers, since they have a special super-low impedence design which is not used by other manufacturers. Bose speakers for MP3 players have their own amplifier built into the speakers.
That would make a total of 20 speakers. Sony sells no such system, nor do they sell an amplifier that can connect that many speakers.
In general, you cannot connect a pair of speakers to a computer, because the computer's sound board does not normally include a power amplifier fit to drive a speaker. It might be possible to drive very small speakers with a high impedance directly from a sound board's headphone output, though. Note that most "PC Speakers" can be directly connected to a computer's audio output because the speaker itself contains a power amplifier. Strictly speaking, such… Read More
Can I connect two 2 ohm speakers to the front channels of my amp and then connect 2 4 ohm speakers to the rear channels of my 4 channel amp?
This depends on your amplifier's specifications. i would recommend looking in the amplifier's service manual to avoid disapointment or damage to your amplifier or speakers.
Do you get a small amplifier that you can install in a car door and connect on the speaker line that comes from the radio?
No. You buy a waring harness and connect it to the car wiring and the amp to the speakers there behind the radio.
No, the radio has its own built-in amplifier. If you're not getting sound from ANY speakers, your radio is probably broken and needs to be replaced.
The wireless spealer system work in part (1)Transmitter and (2)Receiver.The receiver can be a DVD player, CD player or any audio device. It is the transmitter, which is attached to the receiver, which picks up the FM radio signal from the receiver and sends it to the speakers. Wireless speakers contain an amplifier that turns the signal into audible sound.
An 'amplifier' usually refers to an audio amplifier for a HiFi stereo system. (Although amplifiers are used in other devices, such as Radio transmitters, and is an electronic device for making a signal bigger.) A stereo amplifier usually has inputs for various signal sources, such as phono, microphone, tuner, aux etc. It has outputs for speakers. It takes a small input signal and boosts it to drive a loudspeaker and has controls to select the… Read More
Speaker cable is used to connect the speaker outputs on audio devices such as a receiver or amplifier to the inputs on the speaker(s).
The Marantz TT551 needs a phono preamp (usually found in older stereo receivers) and powered speakers or the amplifier inside the old stereo.
Connect a speaker wire to the positive and negative terminals of the speaker, and the same wires to the positive and negative terminals of the amplifier.
You can, but its power output will be a bit higher than its 8 ohm rating.
At the rear of the receiver there is a single RCA jack (phono socket) that is marked "audio out" and "sub-woofer". This is a mono feed that can be connected to a powered sub bass unit. It will not drive an un-powered bass speaker that does not have an internal amplifier. If the bass speaker is not powered, the audio out from the receiver can be taken to a single channel of another amplifier and… Read More
No, they won't. The CiniMate II is designed to connect directly to the DVD player or game machine, and includes a built-in amplifier. The Onkyo does not have a compatible analog output for all of its signals. You should consider the AcoustiMass series of speakers which will connect to the Onkyo's amplifier outputs. The subwoofer will connect to the sub line out.
If you connect three 4 ohm speakers in parallel, the amplifier would see a load of about 1.3 ohms. This definitely could damage the amp if you drive it too loud.
I presume you mean wired to four ohms amplifier output: In this case, pair the two speakers in in series which will make the give you 18 Ohms and then join the two pairs in parallel which will result in approximately eight ohms. Then connect then in that format to the amplifier. It will work for you.
When you say "wire 3 speakers" I assume you mean off of one output. If so, then I will tell you that there are two ways to wire 3 speakers. Series: In series wiring you connect the positive terminal of speaker one to the negative terminal of speaker two, then you take the positive terminal of speaker two and connect it to the negative terminal of speaker three. Now you can connect the positive terminal… Read More
Most power amplifiers will handle a load of 6 ohms. The spec you need to look at is the power handling of the speakers. If they are rated for 100 watts program power, then look for an amplifier rated for 100 watts RMS output. Any amplifier can be connected with adapter cables to the typical 1/8" output of your computer.
Connect the digital audio output of the TV to a surround sound receiver and speakers.
You need to plug an auxiliary cable in to your laptop and get a 3/4" adapter for the cable and plug it into your receiver. At least that's what I need to.
They are called "PA" speakers. PA meaning "Public Address" is a large loudspeaker design to deliver sound to a large group of audience. You'll often see these large speakers at clubs, concerts, and cinemas. There are two types of PA speakers. "Passive" and "Active" speakers. The passive speakers doesn't have a built-in amplifier. These speakers will require the use of a power source called an "Amplifier" to power these speakers. The active speakers have a… Read More
thats only if your reciver has more than to outlets for the speaker to connect to if it does have it connect it the program it to your remote so you will be able to control it with your remote.
I have a Sony KDL-46EX720 and I'm trying to connect it to my 5.1 Surround Sound system The TV will not allow me to connect it directly so do I need a receiver What kind do I need?
You need a receiver with an HDMI output, such as the Sony STRD series of receivers. Your '5.1 Surround System' sounds either like a surround speaker set with no amplifier, or a system designed for computers. The Sony receivers will amplify passive (non-powered) speakers, but the subwoofer will need to be powered. You will then need to purchase a DVD or Blu-Ray player with an HDMI output. Alternately, you can purchase a Blu-Ray Home Theatre… Read More
