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.

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.

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.

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

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