Connecting digital wireless speakers to stereo receiver speaker output


Jan 6, 2011
Hello,my plan to connect a pair of rocketfish digital wireless speakers to the "speaker B" connection at the back of the receiver came to a screeching halt when I saw that the speaker connection is set up for speaker wire and the wireless speaker transmitter uses an RCA connector. Can I just attach a female RCA connctor to the end of a short piece of speaker wire and then plug the male RCA connector
into that?


No, you can't do that. The speaker level output of the receiver will melt the line level input of your powered speakers.
What you can do is use the TAPE OUT of the receiver to an adapter (RCA to 3.5MM stereo) then you can plug the tape level output into the powered speaker input.

I have the same scenario with wireless speakers however, I do not use any other speakers. I need to use my DVD player.

EX: DVD ------> DVD input from RCVR Wireless rock speakers (3.5mm to RCA) Tape Out on RCVR what do I select as my funtion on the RCVR to listen to the DVD?

I have the same issue. Received with my rocketfish a 3.5mm -> rca adapter, but get no sound. plugged in the rocketfish usb to my laptop to test the unit, and ...terrific sound. Is there something failed with the tape-out or maybe it can't be used like this? my understanding is that 'tape out' is used if for ex: i wanted to record off the 'tape in', i'd plug in a recorder and this could get the signal.

just noticed that you mention from 'tape out' to powered speaker. with the rocketfish you're going from tape out to a sending unit, then to a powered speaker. maybe a problem?

Also read that there needs to be an amplifier in what would be my rocketfish sending unit since the signal put out by tape out will be minimal. I believe the rocketfish does amplify....any thoughts??
