Can I Plug In Computer Speakers To The Earphone Jack Of My RV's 12 Volt TV?

Can you use (computer speaker) self-powered speakers with your 12 volt TV? I have a headphone jack and RCA in back of TV.

ANSWER: Greetings Judy thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

You sure can plug in your Computer Speakers to the earphone jack of your TV whether it is 12 volts or 120 volts. The headphone jacks used on TVs are just like the ones on your computer. This is your best bet for using your speakers with your TV.


As far as using the audio RCA jacks on the back of your TV as long as they are marked audio out or speakers out then you can connect your Computer Speakers to them using a Female Mini Jack to 2 RCA Male Plugs Adapter .

The only problem you are going to run into is that your TV may not be a stereo TV. So if you plug your computer speakers into your TV you may only get sound out of one of your speakers.

The same thing also holds true if you only have one audio out RCA Jack on your TV. In that case you can use a RCA Splitter Male to Female.

Hope this helps.
