Hi, Most if not all external speakers for 2way radios just uses two wires to 2 pins going to a mono baby phone plug. There are some models/versions that uses proprietary connector but very seldom. The connection is similar to a mono earphone except of course that instead of an earpiece, it uses a speaker/enclosure. Hope this be of some help/information. Post back should you need additional information and pls include brand/model of the radio. Good luck and kind regards.

How do i get the external audio output to work?

First make sure that your TV has an audio OUT. Most do not. If you do then you can plug into that but you will have to go into the menu on the TV under audio and turn on the external speaker feature. If you do not have an audio OUT then you will have to hook you speaker to the audio OUT of your home stereo system and hook the source output to the input of your stereo. Source being (dvd, cable box). In that case you need to turn off the internal speakers on the TV and just run it through your home stereo system.

The speaker phone on our panasonic KX-T7633 dosn't go loud enough. We are trying to hook up an external speaker, but when we plug it into the headphone jack we just get a buzzing noise. Is there a...

There should be a way to do that. 1st make sure speaker jack is fully inserted. If you still have same problem try normal headphones and see if there still is foreign hum- then if headphones work, check the size of both the jacks to see if there the same- you might just have wrong size jack. If that is not the problem the Impedance(ohm symbol) is probably wrong and the phone doesn't have enough power to drive your speaker.. Use a speaker with same Impedance, you might have to use a speaker with its own power supply to get appropiate volume. You could try your PC external speaker. I hope this has been helpful.

Hi i have an LG 42PQ3000 i want to know if i can hook up external speakers to it as the is not setting on the menu i can find

Most new televisions will not allow to just hook up a speaker to them. You find Coaxial or optic audio outputs. These can only be hooked yup to a compatible external home theater system or soundbar. Most manufacturers today make wonderfull aftermarklet audio systems to help you enjoy the audio portion of a broadcast better. The amplifier in most new flat screens is not 10 watts, so driving an external speaker is out of the question. YOU WILL DAMAGE THE TV!

I have a panasonic SA AK25 with no manual.There are 2 sets of wires coming out of the speakers .how do i hook them up at the back ,thanks

you need a basic meter to ohm out the wires. most speakers ohm out around 8 ohms. some speakers have wires that can hook up to more speakers. others use an external power source to boost the output of the speaker. I would ohm out the wires and find the closest thing to 8 ohms. then with a small 1.5 volt flash light (AA) or (AAA) battery you go across the wires that you think are the load (speaker) if you hear a poping or crackle sound then you have found the wires that are the speaker wires. this would be the wires to hook up to the amp.

Want to add an external speaker to TV

If you have audio out RCA jacks then you can hook up some computer speakers that have RCA jack inputs. If you don't have audio outputs and your TV has a HOT chassis then you won't be able to do it. If your tv has a switching power supply then you can install a jack to TV speakers, so they disconect when you hook up your other speakers, if you try and hook up speaker to the TV speakers then the impedence will change, and your audio output IC will get hot and short out.
