Add 2.1 Sound to Your Xbox 360

Introduction: Add 2.1 Sound to Your Xbox 360

Everybody loves BANGING SOUND so today I'm going to tell you how to connect your Xbox 360 to a 2.1 sound system.

Step 1: What You'll Need

This is what you'll need:
*Xbox 360 (core,arcade,pro,elite)
*2.1 Sound System

Step 2: Get Started

Now it's time to connect everything.

First make sure you're using the component or composite cable.
The core and arcade come with the component cable and the Pro and Elite come with the composite cable.
NOTE: The elite also comes with an HDMI, in this Instructable I will not be using the HDMI.

1. Get the Red and White cables and connect them to the correct slots on the back of the Speaker system. Then connect the other end of the cable to your Xbox.
2. To get a picture on your tv you'll need to connect the yellow wire to the scart adaptor that comes with your Xbox and plug it into your tv.

NOTE: the sound system and TV will need to be close together for the wires to reach.

3. connect the speakers to the Sound system if you haven't already.

Step 3: Fin

You should now have some banging 2.1 sound coming from your xbox. ENJOY!!
