Home theatre systems enhance the video viewing experience through surround sound and other effects that are normally reserved for movie theatres. You can also hook up a microphone to home theatre systems for karaoke and other activities. Connecting a microphone to a home theatre system is a simple job that takes very little time.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Examine your home theatre system's equaliser component to locate a microphone jack. The jack should be labelled as "mic" and/or have a small logo of a microphone under it.

  2. 2

    Check your system to make sure it is turned off. Plugging new components into a sound system that is turned on can damage the system.

  3. 3

    Insert the plug from the microphone into the mic jack for the theatre system.

  4. 4

    Turn on both the theatre system and the microphone to test the equipment and make sure it works properly.

Tips and warnings

  • If you are hooking up multiple microphones, you will likely need a junction box. Plug the mics into the jacks of the junction box, then connect the box output to the input of the EQ system.
