How to Connect Wireless Speakers

Wireless speakers provide audio from your television, stereo, MP3 player or computer to areas of your house or business without the use of cords and wires. You don't have to try and hide speaker connection cables or worry about tripping over speaker wires. Wireless speakers consist of a transmitter that is connected to your audio device and the speakers. Once you connect the transmitter to your stereo or other audio device, you can place the speakers anywhere–the patio, living room, office or other area of your house or business.
