How to Connect Panasonic Surround Sound

Updated February 21, 2017

Panasonic produces a wide range of electronic products, spanning from high definition televisions to Blu-ray players. The company also creates surround sound systems, which are the perfect addition to any home theatre. Of course, these devices do require some assembly as all the speakers are not connected and you also need to hook up your digital televisions and DVD players to the surround sound system.

Position the Panasonic surround sound receiver near your television and other equipment you want to hook up to the receiver.

Look on the back of the TV (or other devices) to determine the high quality connection port available. HDMI is an HD audio/video hook up and provides the best audio, then the digital audio connection and, lastly, the RCA audio connection.

Insert the highest quality audio cable(s) into the audio outputs on the TV, then insert the opposite end of the cables into the audio "In" ports on the Panasonic surround sound receiver.

Position the speakers around the surround sound receiver. The middle channel speaker is located either directly below or above the TV. Place two speakers to the side of the TV (one on the right, the other on the left), then position the last two speakers behind the main seating area of the room.

Connect the wires running out of the speakers into the speaker connection ports on the receiver. Each connection port is designed for a specific speaker. The front speakers connect into either "Front Left" or "Front Right" and the rear speakers connect to "Rear Left" or "Rear Right."
