How to Hook Speakers Up to an iPhone

Your iPhone is a great device for enjoying multimedia. While the ear buds provide great sound quality when you're on the go, you may want to plug your iPhone into your home or car stereo system. Since the iPhone audio jack is a fairly standard size, you can easily set up your favorite audio system to play your iPhone or iPod media files.

Step

Find the input or auxiliary input jack on your stereo. In some newer cars, this is easy to find on the dashboard. On home audio systems, the input may be the white and red audio cables. Make note of the input cables you need.

Step

Purchase a "male-to-male" audio wire for your iPhone. These can be procured at most electronics stores and will have the insert component on both ends. For car audio, this wire will likely have two ends that look the same (for inserting into your iPhone's headphone jack and the car's "AUX" input).

Step

Insert one end of the audio cable into your iPhone's headphone jack and place the other end into the appropriate audio input or auxiliary input jacks.

Step

Set your stereo to play audio from the auxiliary source and turn on your iPhone/iPod. You can now enjoy music in your car or home.
