Connecting Bose Speaker To TV Via Optical Cable
An optical cable is a popular choice for connecting audio devices like Bose speakers to TVs, as it provides a high-quality digital audio signal. The following steps need to be taken in order to successfully connect your Bose speaker to your television using an optical cable:
- Discover where the optical port is located on both your TV and your Bose speaker. In most cases, you’ll find it on the back of the TV.
- If you don’t have one already, you can find optical cables at most electronics stores or online retailers. Make sure to choose a cable of sufficient length to connect your TV and speaker.
- Put one end of the optical cable into the port on the TV for the optical input, and the other end into the optical input on the Bose speaker.
- Turn on your Bose speaker and TV.
- You can change the audio source on your TV by using the remote control to select the optical input. This may vary depending on your TV model, so consult your TV’s user manual if necessary.
Connecting Bose Speaker To TV Via HDMI
HDMI is another popular method for connecting devices because it can transmit both video and audio signals. Using an HDMI cable, connect your Bose speaker to your TV as follows:
- Find the HDMI ARC port (also known as the Audio Return Channel) on both your TV and your Bose speaker.
- Make sure the HDMI cable is connected. Put one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI ARC port on the TV, and then put the other end of the cable into the HDMI ARC port on the Bose speaker.
- Turn on your TV and Bose speaker.

Connecting Bose Speaker To TV Via Aux Cable
An AUX cable is a simple way to connect your Bose speaker to your TV, especially if you’re working with older hardware that doesn’t support optical or HDMI connections. Following are the steps for connecting an AUX cable to your Bose speaker:
- The first step is to locate the AUX port on both your TV and your Bose speaker. Typically, the port is located on the back or side of the TV.
- Once you’ve located the AUX port, the next step is to connect the AUX cable. Connect the AUX cable’s TV end to the TV’s AUX port and the speaker’s AUX end to the Bose. Ensure a secure connection by inserting the cable fully into both ports.
- Turn on both your TV and your Bose speaker once you have connected the AUX cable to each device. The sound from your speaker should now be playing.
Connecting Bose Speaker To TV Via Bluetooth
If your Bose speaker and TV both support Bluetooth, you can connect them wirelessly for a more convenient and clutter-free setup. However, if your TV doesn’t have built-in Bluetooth, you can use a Bluetooth hook (transmitter) to enable this connection. Here’s how to connect your Bose speaker to your TV via Bluetooth:
- Turn on your Bose speaker first. Charge and power the speaker. Hold the power button to turn on your Bose speaker.
- Enable Bluetooth on your TV next. Find Bluetooth in your TV’s settings. Once found, turn it on.
- Pair your TV and Bose speaker next. Press your Bose speaker’s Bluetooth button. The speaker searches for devices in pairing mode. Choose your Bose speaker from the TV’s list.
- Finally, connect your Bose speaker to your TV.
- When it is connected enjoy the music.
