Many Panasonic television systems have an optical digital audio jack. This connection allows you to add additional surround-sound speakers to the TV, improving the audio quality of the set while increasing the overall volume you are able to produce. Because the optical digital audio cable is a single connection, the entire hookup process only takes a few minutes to complete.


Step 1

Plug the single optical digital audio cable into the "Digital Audio Out" port, located on the rear of the Panasonic television.
