How To Connect External Speakers To The 42 Panasonic Plasma Tv Audio Output

Learning how to connect external speaker to the 42" Panasonic Plasma TV is fairly simple. The process is the same for connecting speakers to most other TV audio outputs. You will only need to connect the audio output port to the inputs on the speakers. Follow these steps to learn about how to connect external speakers to your 42" Panasonic Plasma TV.

What you will need:

  • Speaker wire
  • Audio connection adapter
  1. Determine the connection type for the audio outputs on the TV. On some models, these are composite type audio connectors. If you are unsure what type your TV has, consult the manual. You will also need to make sure that your TV does have audio outputs, because not all TVs do.
  2. Check the connection type for your external speakers. If they are the same type, use a speaker wire with those connection types to simply connect the audio outputs on the TV to the inputs on the speakers. If they are not the same type, you will need to use an audio connection adapter to change the connection type on one end.
  3. Test the connection. Adjust the volume on the TV and the external speakers, if they have a volume controller. Using speakers with a power cord will allow you to adjust the speakers to a higher volume compared to using speakers without a power cord.


You can connect the audio outputs on the TV to an audio receiver instead of the speakers directly. This will allow you to use a surround sound system or more speakers.
