What can be connected to te audio output jacks on the back of this set?

You didn't include make and model TV; so only generalized answers are possible.

Typical RCA phono jacks like those shown in the blue box of the stereo amplifier below:

25998201-ac5bgneb45fvu53muoueauti-3-0.jpg will accept cables to connect to other audio devices. The audio RCA jacks are color coded RED (right) and WHITE (left) for low level stereo signals. Some have YELLOW jacks for Standard Definition video, ORANGE jacks for AC3 Digital audio and newer amps have HDMI jacks.

Connect the TV's audio OUTPUT jacks and a stereo pair of unused audio INPUT jacks on the amplifier with cables that have ends that match each. Turn on the stereo & TV and select the input on the amplifier that matches the stereo pair of inputs you used to connect to the TV. Adjust the volume to hear the audio over your stereo system's speakers.

Use the HDMI or AC3 sources for superior audio - including 5.1 (or better) Dobly Digital when possible. Otherwise, a standard 2 channel stereo program will be heard.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Where do i fit my surround speakers and do i need an amp?

Run RCA cable from TV to Home Theater receiver input jacks. Then run the speakers from receiver outputs. The cables and the receiver jacks are color coded - usually red and white. TV's are only 10-20 Watts so you will need the receiver to amp the sound..

A Clarion DB365USB: I want to connect the input of the amp for a sub woofer to the clarion. There are 3 pairs of RCA jacks on the back of the clarion. Top pair are input, the second and third i think...

There should not be a constant voltage present on the output RCA's. They will only put out voltage when there is something playing and it will be a very small and constantly varying amount. If you plug it in and it is still not working you may need to adjust the menu settings on the head unit or the input sensitivity of the amplifier. For example if you plug the RCA's into the Rear outputs of the head unit and the Fader setting is all the way forward, you will not get any sound. Same goes for the amp settings, if you turn it on and the input sensitivity is set way down then you won't get any sound then either. Cheers, Dan

I have a LG47" tv

Your DVD audio is sent directly to your receiver - not to you TV. That's why you can hear the audio on your stereo. The TV audio is not being sent anywhere - it is "stuck" in the TV and is amplified and sent to the TV speakers. Since the TV speakers are off, you don't hear anything. In order to listen to the TV audio on the stereo system's speakers, you need to send it to the receiver.

You need to have a pair (left + right signals) of audio cables (assuming you wish to listen to stereo sound) from the TV's Audio Output jacks to a pair of Audio Input jacks on the receiver / amplifier. You can use any unused input - CD, Video, Tape, Sat, etc. If you use Tape or Sat audio inputs, when you wish to listen to the TV audio, you must select the Tape or Sat input on the receiver.

Do not send more than one signal to a set of inputs on the receiver. Typically, a CD, DVD and Sat inputs offer two or more of the following types 1) Analog audio. These are the older RCA jacks that have been around since the beginning and require separate cables for left and right channels. 2) Optical inputs. This is the newer digital interface that provides for Dolby Digital (and others) format sound over a single fiber optic cable. 3) Coaxial inputs. This jacks looks like an RCA jack, but usually has an Orange ring - instead of the Red & White rings that analog RCA jacks have. They use a single coaxial cable. 4) HDMI input. This jacks carries both digital video and digital audio signals. If you are using an Optical input for the DVD on the receiver, do not use any other unused analog or digital inputs associated with the DVD to "piggyback" another device like a CD , VHS tape, etc.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I want to play normal tv sound thru the surround sound, but do not know what cables to use? i have an LG 460 tv, and a sanyo dc-ht818, it doesnt seem to have TOSLINK or HDMI inputs, so what can i use?

The Sanyo has stereo analog LINE INPUT jacks. Run two RCA audio cables from the TV to these jacks and select this LINE INPUT FUNCTION on the Sanyo. If the TV has no analog audio output jacks you can even use the headphone output by using a 3.5mm adapter to RCA audio connectors.

What wires do I hook up to the high level in plug that came with my dual xp2100 2 channel amp

First, know that you need either high level input or low level input, but not both. Low level input is preferred (RCA cables). If you must use high level input because your head unit doesn't have RCA jacks, you connect the speaker outputs from the head unit to the high level input of your amp. The high level input plug probably has a black wire, this is "signal reference ground". A pair of grey wires which are right positive (grey) and right negative (grey with black stripe). And a pair of white wires, left positive (white) and left negative (white with black stripe).

Red light is on when i connect input cable earthquake 1000w amp

Cables are either shorted, or deck is putting out too much power for input on amp... many new head-units will put out up to 7v on the output jacks (RCA) the amp may only want to see up to 1v will need to consult head-unit manual for adjustment of outputs.

Red light stays on no sound. rca cable grnd, must be connected?

What do you mean the RCA cables are'nt grounded? All RCA cable have a ground. What kind are you using? The round metal at the end of the RCA cable is the ground. The silver or outside of the line input on the amp is the ground for the RCA cables. Anyway, that would'nt stop your amp from coming on. I suggest you take a piece of wire and ground it to the amp and touch the metal piece on the RCA cable and see if you get sound. Even if the RCA cable is'nt grounded you would get some type of sound coming out of the amp maybe. If you do it will sound like it's cominf thru a long tunnel, like a reverb effect. I have never heard of an RCA cable not having a ground. ARE you sure you have RCA cables? Let me know and send me a pic if you can of the input of the amp so I can see how you have it hooked up.
