Want to hook up a philips sound bar to my t.v. what cable do I need and where do I plug in at
Which model TV and which model sound bar do you have? Some Sansui TVs have a coaxial digital audio port and a 3.5 mm headphone port; this is true for the SLED2480. Some of the smallest Sansui TVs may only have a headphone out option or no audio output. These jacks will be on the back or the side depending on the model. For some Sansui models, these will be easiest to see when you put the TV on its face (on a clean soft surface) and look next to the base of the TV.
The Philips CSS2123B/F7 has a digital coaxial port, a digital optical port and RCA analog inputs on the back of the unit. It also has a 3.5 mm input on the right side for connection with auxiliary devices (like a headphone out). Other models may have different ports.
Thus the cables you need will depend on the specifics of your devices; similarly the locations of the ports will depend on the models. If your TV only has a headphone out and the soundbar has analog audio inputs, you will probably want a 3.5 mm to RCA audio adapter. There are several options depending on whether you want to use an 3.5 mm audio cable or an RCA audio between the TV and the soundbar. (Pick a cable and then get the adapter to plug into either the TV (M 3.5 mm to RCA FF) or the soundbar (2 RCA MM to 3.5 mm F).) There are 3.5 mm M to RCA MM cables as well.
If your TV has an digital audio outputs, get the correct cable (optical or coaxial) and connect that to the port on the sound bar and TV.
Please add a comment with the model of your TV and soundbar for specific information. I hope this helps.
