head unit, wiring harness, installation kit, amp, amp wiring kit that matches wattage (includes power wire with spec inline fuse, ground cable, rca cables, and speaker wire), speakers, and a kit of electrical connections with crimpers/strippers is recommended.

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.

Powered speakers have an amp between the audio source and the speakers. Non-powered speakers have the amp located in the audio source. Speakers are usually called powered if they are sold with an amplifier either attached to the speakers or physically near the speakers.

Not much info in you question but Good Speakers connected to a 100 watt amplifier will improve the average sound system, speakers are the weakest link in the sound system so you should put most of your money there.

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.

there should be a fuse for the audio system in the car fusing panel, but if for the speakers only- then that should be within the audio system itself.

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.

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.

If there are no speaker connections on the back of the TV, then you need to buy a sound system. The 5.1 is popular and many programs are recorded with a Surround 5.1 audio track. This system will have its own amplifier and sometimes speakers. Something with about 100 watts per channel would be good. Then connect AUDIO OUT from the TV to AUDIO IN on the sound system. Go into the audio menu and set the Audio output to FIXED.

In most cases you need 4 parts: 1- Input(microphone, iPod, CD player, radio, etc) 2- Mixer 3-amplifier 4- speakers

Your TV will need to have some sort of audio output. Some do, many don't. A dedicated audio output on a TV will usually be an analog stereo mini jack connection, or a newer model may have an optical or coaxial digital audio output. These will need connecting to an audio input on your sound system amplifier. If your TV has a headphone output, you can sometimes connect this to your amplifier and get a reasonable sound.

Plug the audio system into the AUDIO OUTPUT jacks on the LCD. Go into the menu and change the signal to the jacks to FIXED if you can.

User Avatar

The TV will need to have AUDIO OUTPUT jacks to connect to the speakers or a amplifier to power the speakers and subwoofer.

You can turn on your monitor's speakers by inserting the audio jack into its audio-in port. If no audio is heard, ensure your computer's system volume is turned up.

Depends on what your definition of "receiver" is, but most of the time - to the amplifier. Consider: 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.

A speaker is design to deliver sound. An amplifier is a power source for your speakers or subwoofers. It needs power to operate. Then, it now needs data. The incoming data is transferred from your audio unit to your amplifier. Then, the power and data is then transferred to your speakers so they can work.

In order to convert car audio system which plays CDs, the entire system has to be replaced with one that allows USB connection. It is not necessary to change all the wiring or the speakers.

Install a subwoofer, amp, aftermarket speakers, and a head unit. Possibly, the easiest way to get the best out of your car audio system is to upgrade the speakers.

The purpose of an audio amplifier is to make a quiet signal louder.

Buy a headphone jack to have a red and white splitter. You can connect the headphone jack to your computer and the audio splitter to the aux. jack on your amplifier. The amplifier needs to be set on the aux setting. You can buy the headphone audio splitter @ Walmart for about 6 dollars.

Search for amplified speakers. Usually they have a built-in input, an audio amplifier, and speakers. You plug the audio of your mobile device into the input of the amplified speakers and power from a wall outlet or batteries will amplify your sound.

Without knowing exactly what system you have its hard to answer. Do you have the Premium factory audio system or is it the Standard Audio system. And yes it does make a difference. Like 4 speakers difference

if year is between 1990 and 1996 and the Z has a Bose audio system, then each individual door speaker has its own amplifier. the amplifiers are built into the speaker pods.

User Avatar

Yes. And it will also present the wrong load impedance (mismatch) at the output of the audio amplifier, with the possibility of damage to the amplifier.
