How to connect the sound box on Samsung smart TV

Samsung Smart TVs allow the user to connect speakers to improve the quality of audio playback, using both a cable and Bluetooth connection.

See the following step-by-step to learn how to connect a sound box using a P2 (3.5 mm) jack cable and how to set the external sound output in the TV settings.

You will need a cable with P2 connectors on both ends, plus the sound box with this type input

Step 1. Locate the audio output on your TV. The position may vary, but the location should be highlighted with "Audio Out" as pictured. Your device may have several types of sound output, but the one we need here is the same as a 3.5mm headphone port, which you find on a cell phone or laptop;

Step 5. In the "Sound" options, choose "Speaker Settings". Depending on the system version of your TV, text may vary with other terms, such as "Sound Output", "Device List" or "Advanced Settings";
