    I have a LG amp I inherited. It has speaker connections on the rear which are dual male kind of like bone shape.

    I want to connect a 5.1 system for my son's Xbox but cannot find the plugs needed.

    Can anyone identify these from my vague description? :lease:

    If it is an all-in-one home cinema system, check that it has audio inputs e.g. analogue (red/white RCA phono connections) or digital which will be either digi-coax (RCA connection usually coloured orange) or a toslink connection for an optical cable.

    The speaker connections are for speakers only. From your description, I suspect it doesn't have audio inputs, in which case it won't be any use. The Xbox (and 360) are capable of outputing analogue audio (2.0 channel stereo) via the red/white analogue connections and also digital audio (for DD5.1) via an optical connection.

    Has the audio inputs but I need help on connecting the 5 speakers into it. Usually they are the clamp type that the bare speak wire go into but this as I say need some form of a female dual plug.

    It has a optical input that is why I want connect the Xbox into it.

    If I recall, they were the same cables as Sony used on their DAVS systems, but still worht a quick call to LG to confirm this.
