Types of Wireless Speakers
Now, it’s time to start setting up the wireless surround sound system. Connect the transmitter to the audio source for your television via a digital cable. The connections source can include your DVD player, audio receiver or the TV itself. If you are not sure how to do this, pull out the manual for your devices. Some systems require you to connect with other types of cables. So, you’ll have to check.
Depending on your speakers, you are probably going to need to either plug them into a power source or add batteries. Check first. If they require batteries, go ahead and put the batteries in before you start placing them. If they require some sort of power source, this will affect the placement of the speakers.
Another thing to consider with wireless speakers is whether or not they use infrared or radio signals. Infrared speakers will need an unobstructed path since the transmitter needs to send signals to them directly. Speakers that use a radio frequency don’t need any type of line of sight to operate.
Some wireless speakers come with built-in receivers. So, if you don’t have an external audio receiver, you should probably go with these types of speakers. If you have an external audio receive, go ahead and plug the speakers with the speaker cables into the receiver.
