Aux Cable or Others 

If your TV doesn’t have HDMI or optical outputs, you may be able to use an Aux cable or other adapters. Consult your soundbar’s manual for details.

Turn On Soundbar:

Use the supplied remote control to turn on the soundbar. You may also use your TV’s remote if HDMI-CEC is enabled on both devices.

Pair the Subwoofer (if applicable):

If your soundbar comes with a wireless subwoofer, it may automatically pair when you turn on both devices. If not, consult your manual for pairing instructions.

Configure Audio Settings:

Some soundbars offer different sound modes like ‘Movie,’ ‘Music,’ ‘News,’ etc. Choose the one that best suits your preference.


Play audio from the TV to make sure the sound is coming through the soundbar.
