Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

1 Answer

Use JBL Creature speakers (pc speakers) through tv

Any help welcome.
I currently run my JBL Creatures through my tv, I plug a jack into the amp/woofer and the other jack into the headphone socket on my tv, this allows me to control the volume with my tv remote, unfortunately, the sound is not as great as it should be.
If i just run rca to rca the sound is as it should be, but i cannot control the sound with my tv remote.
Bit of a catch 22 situation.
anyone got any ideas.

    Thankyou, I have already tried the menus on the tv, but no joy.

    the tv is a Samsung PS42QHDX plasma tv.

    I have also thought about runnning jack from woofer to sky + box then optical audio out from sky + box to optical audio on plasma??

There may be a setting in the TV's menu to set fixed or variable output for the rca's. You want variable. Some have two sets of audio outputs for fixed and variable. Depends on the TV. Check those two things. If no help let me know what the TV is and we'll see what we can do.

How do i connect the following speakers to a tv?


Look for a headphone jack plugin on the TV, and if you have one then plug the speakers into that. Otherwise if you only have RCA audio jacks on the TV (red/white plug-ins), you'll need an RCA male/stereo female adapter. I did a quick search and found this one on Amazon for $1.49:

You could probably find one at Radioshack or a local electronics store otherwise.

Also, in case you need it, here's a link to the owner manual:

How do i hook external speakers to sony bravia television


The proper way to do this would be to use the audio output from the TV, either analogue left and right or the optical port, and send it into an dedicated amplifier or AV receiver. You can then use the amplifier or receiver to power the external speakers. If you are using a dedicated amplifier with no volume control you will want to change the audio output setting on the TV to "variable out" as oppose to its current "fixed out"settings. You can find this in the TV menu, usually under the audio settings. This will allow you to use the current TV remote to adjust the audio volume coming out of the external speakers.

Working on tv/playstation 2


You can easily buy RCA conectors and splice them. Remove the 1/8 plug from the speakers and strip the ends and add the RCA connector. I am not so sure of what it would sound like but the ohms may be different.
