A television set's built-in speakers will never sound as good as a stand-alone stereo system with external speakers. You can hook up the audio from a TV, for example, a Philips TV, to a stereo system to improve the audio quality you hear. You will need cables that can be acquired from an electronics store or a computer store. No special modifications are made to either the TV or the stereo.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Philips TV remote
  • Stereo system remote
  • Mini-jack adaptor audio cable

  1. 1

    Turn the Philips TV off using its remote. Turn the stereo system off using its remote.

  2. 2

    Insert the plug at one end of a mini-jack adaptor audio cable into the "headphone" connection on the Philips TV; typically the connection will be located on the bottom front panel of the TV, although in some cases it could be located on a side or back panel.

  3. 3

    Insert the red RCA plug at the other end of the mini-jack adaptor audio cable into the "Aux" labelled red RCA connection on the back of the stereo system. Insert the white RCA plug that is also at the end of the mini-jack adaptor audio cable into the "Aux" labelled white RCA connection, next to the red RCA connection.

  4. 4

    Turn the stereo system on, using its remote. Select the "Aux" button on the remote. Turn the TV on. Adjust the volume of the TV's audio, being played through the speakers attached to the stereo system, using the remote's volume key pads.

Tips and warnings

  • Turn the stereo system's volume down prior to connecting the TV to it.
