Can't figure out where to plug in the transmitter

We are trying to install this Shift 3 wireless outdoor speaker into our surround sound system. It's looks exactly like the one pictured on the Shift3 box. However, we have tried every plug-in site and nothing works.
the instructions with the speaker are just useless and their ''customer service'' doesn't exist. HELP!

If the unit your tring to connect has RCA style plugs you can plug them in to the tape REC out connections on the back of the reciever.
Once you turn the reciever on an select your source it will out put on the tape REC out which in turn sends signal to the wireless device.
if the unit your tring to connect has a 1/8" or 1/4" plug you have to convert to RCA or plug into the 1/4" headphone conncetion on the front of the unit

Sharper image indoor/outdoor wireless speakers and transmitter has no audio.


First, determine if the TV device is putting out sound by plugging in a headphone into the audio out of the TV. If audio is there then the
transmitter and wireless speakers system may be at fault.
You can also plug in a CD player playing a disc into the transmitter to see if that source then transmits the audio.

Acoustic Research Model AW871 wireless sterio speakers


Your connection between the AR transmitter and the ONKYO receiver sounds solid. I'd guess it's the wireless speakers that are the wrong point, or at least that's what I'd look at first. Doing a bit of research, I noticed a couple minor points. First, these seem prone to RF interference from other RF devices. Have to tried switching channels on them? Second, someone reported theirs would not work properly unless the speakers were turned on just before the transmitter, and turned off shortly after the transmitter. Apparently you have to hold the button on the front in for 5 seconds to turn the speakers on or off. I know that's rather basic, but it's been a few days and no one else has responded, so I figured we should start somewhere.

Just purchased SBHS100AE-K rear speakers to connect to my SC-BT100. I want to connect them wired rather than purchase the wireless transmitter, but I can't figure out how to connect the wired rear speakers...


This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.

Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.

Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.

You can review the manual like I did here:

I hope this answered your question.

Is it possible to connect my PC to my outdoor speakers? I want to play music outside using my PC. Is there a special connector that I need?


There are a couple of ways to go about this. The first would be to locate a similar computer speaker system set up outside - provide power and extend the cable to them - if not too far. When you want to listen to the outside speakers, plug the cable into the headphone jack of the computer. Adjust volume and enjoy.

Another way, would be to buy (or build from kit form) a low power FM transmitter. These devices are available in mono & stereo types and will play over all FM radios and stereos in a 50 to 300+ foot radius (depending on antenna, wall construction, transmitter power, etc.) when they are tuned to the transmitter frequency. These can be found for under $100 or built for as little as $30 or so. The upside to this method is that the music is available over ALL radios nearby.

Still another way is a wireless speaker system. This works like the FM transmitter, but will only work on these particular speakers. These will require power only - but some will work from internal batteries as well as AC power. The system includes a small transmitter, power cord & cable to plug into a headphone jack - all for use at the computer, and two speakers - each with a power cord as well and possibly a remote control.

Use of a spare pair of old stereo speakers will probably not work as the computer's sound card rarely develops more than a watt or two - and most home speakers require 10 or more watts to be driven properly.
