banana plugs to rca wireless receiver

I have a house audio system on which the speakers are connected using banana plugs. I would like to install a low voltage outdoor speaker/light system that utilizes a RCA cable for input into the wireless transmitter. This transmitter has its own power source. Is there any way I can connect the RCA cable to the banana plugs?

  1. an RCA input (Line In) is different than a Speaker Level input - not going to work

    you need to run the RCA from the new box to the Output of one of the sources on the receiver
  2. Best answer
    Many receivers used to have a Line or Tape out(to allow you to record the radio to a connected tape deck).

    If you have this, you should be able to use it to connect to the outdoor speakers transmitter.

    Failing that, if you feel like a little DIY, this should work as well(provided your amp is under 50watts and has a common ground.).

  3. Thanks Dingo, looks like I am out of luck. All of the output jacks are for wired speakers.

  4. nukemaster you are the best! It has been so long since I used the line out that I had forgotten about it. Got it plugged in, set up the transmitter, hooked a test outdoor speaker attached to outdoor receiver, and it is working sweet. Thanks much!
