How to Hook My Wireless Speaker to My Amplifier

Updated February 21, 2017

Wireless speakers work with a transmitter connected to an audio source, such as an amplifier, to receive the sound signal as a radio frequency. Once transmitted, the wireless speaker reproduces the audio signal. You can place the wireless speaker almost anywhere in a room, as long as it is within the transmitter's broadcasting range. The transmitter connects to one of the amplifier's speaker terminals with a short section of speaker wire.

Cut a 6-inch length of two-strand speaker wire and peel the insulation off the strands on both ends using the wire cutters.

Attach the coloured wire to the right terminal on the transmitter and the other wire to the left terminal.

Connect the two strands on the other end to a speaker terminal on the rear of your amplifier.

Plug in the power cord for the transmitter and switch on the amplifier.

Switch on the power for the wireless speaker and place in the desired location within the room.
