How to Add Speakers to a Panasonic TV With One Optical Digital Audio Out

By Greyson Ferguson

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.

Things You'll Need

  • Surround sound receiver
  • Optical digital audio cable

Step 1

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

Step 2

Insert the other end of the cable into the "Digital Audio In" port on the Panasonic television receiver. Connect the speakers to the receiver.

Step 3

Power on both the Panasonic television and the connected surround sound receiver.

Step 4

Select "Digital Audio" and the audio from the Panasonic television is produced with the connected surround sound receiver.
