Can You Hook Up an iPhone to the Vizio Sound Bar?

by Christina Shaffer

    While the iPhone allows you to play your favorite songs directly through the device’s speakers, you may want to amplify the music for a special event. Many Vizio Sound Bar models include multiple audio inputs that can be used to play music stored on a variety of different devices, including an iPhone. Depending on the model, you can connect up to five different devices and play audio. To connect the iPhone to the home theater speaker, use the stereo audio cable that was included with your purchase.

    Step 1

    Power off the Vizio Sound Bar.

    Step 2

    Plug one end of the 3.5mm stereo audio cable into the "Analog In" jack on the back of the Sound Bar.

    Step 3

    Insert the opposite end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on the iPhone.

    Step 4

    Turn on the Sound Bar. If necessary, turn on the iPhone.

    Step 5

    Press the “Input” button on the Sound Bar and select the iPhone as the input source.

    Step 6

    Tap the Music app on the iPhone’s main screen and select the song, album or playlist you want to listen to through the Sound Bar. The music begins playing through the device automatically.
