CS3 Quick Reference
Everything needed is included for these 3 hookup methods
The audio optical out cable can be used to connect the ChairSpeaker transmitter to the TV's optical audio out. When using this type of connection you must change your TV's output type to PCM audio format. This option is normally in the settings menu under audio options.
RCA output is a very common and easy to use output, however you must make sure the output is labeled as an output. This connection method will not work on inputs RCAs.
When using the headphone jack to connect the transmitter the sound will be turned off on the TV. If you would like to listen to the TVs sound and sound through the ChairSpeaker you will need to use another method.
Other hookup methods requiring additional parts
With Surround Sound
You can use an optical splitter to share the sound with your sound bar. When using this type of connection you must change your TV's output type to PCM audio format. This option is normally in the settings menu under audio options. To order this kit for connection click here.
You can hook up to the center channel of any surround sound system. We suggest the center channel because this is the channel that typically carries the voices. Using this hook up method the volume will be adjusted when you adjust the volume on the surround sound. To hook up to the the center channel you will need the center channel connection kit.
