Before starting the process, you need to make sure that your projector has the necessary connectivity options to connect a soundbar.

Check the back or side of your projector for HDMI, RCA, or optical audio output ports. Make sure your soundbar has a corresponding input option.

The rear panel of the LG soundbar offers you multiple options for connectivity. You can choose between an optical audio connection, HDMI connection, or even a 3.5mm audio cable. Determine which type of connection you want to use for your projector.

Optical audio connection

The optical audio connection is perfect if you want to take advantage of the digital output provided on your projector. This connection allows you to get higher-quality audio reproduction than what is typically available over your projector’s built-in speakers.

To connect the LG soundbar to your projector using an optical audio connection, follow these steps:

1. Connect the included optical cable to the optical output of your projector.

2. Insert the cable into the soundbar’s optical input until it clicks into place.

3. On some projectors, you might need to configure the optical port through the menus to actively output sound. However, on LG projectors, this output defaults to active.

HDMI connection

If your LG soundbar has an HDMI IN from the source component, you can use this connection to get the highest quality audio. The HDMI connection carries both video and audio over a single cable, making it a convenient option.

For connecting your LG soundbar to your projector using an HDMI connection, simply follow these instructions:

1. Attach the HDMI out of the source component to the HDMI IN of the soundbar.

2. Connect the HDMI output of the soundbar to the projector screen to pass the video signal through.

3.5mm audio cable

Connecting an LG soundbar to a projector via a 3.5mm audio cable is a simple process that involves the following steps:

1. Check the inputs and outputs of both the soundbar and the projector. Most soundbars have a 3.5mm audio jack, while projectors usually have an audio output port.

2. Get a 3.5mm audio cable that is long enough to reach from the soundbar to the projector.

3. Connect one end of the audio cable to the 3.5mm audio output port on the LG soundbar.

4. Connect the other end of the audio cable to the audio output port on the projector.

3. Turn on the soundbar

Press the power button on the LG soundbar to turn it on. If the soundbar has a display panel, you should see a message indicating that it is receiving audio input.

4. Adjust the volume

Use the volume controls on the LG soundbar to adjust the volume to your desired level. If you are not getting any sound, make sure the volume on the soundbar is turned up and that the projector’s volume is not muted or turned down.

5. Test the connection

Play a video or audio file on the projector to test the connection between the soundbar and the projector. If the sound is coming through the soundbar, you have successfully connected it to the projector.

6. Switching between inputs

You might wind up using more than one type of connection to the LG soundbar. To switch between the inputs, use the function buttons on the remote. This will take you from input to input, indicating on the front panel of the soundbar, which one is currently selected.

That’s it! Following these steps should enable you to connect your LG soundbar to your projector and enjoy the high-quality sound for your home theater system.
