I'm looking for some tech help on how to connect a [[[Sonos Beam x 3rd party subwoofer]]].
I've tried with two brands so far: 1. Velodyne Microvee 2. Sunfire HRS8using this adapter SOUTHSKY 5.1CH DAC Converter Audio Decoder Digital Optical Coaxial Toslink to RCA 3.5mm Jack Support Dolby AC-3 DTS 5.1 2.0CH for Xbox PS2,PS3,PS4,TV (SPDIF/Coaxial to 6RCA+3.5mm).
I can't seem to get it to work but I'm also aware I'm a total novice at this. I've attached some photos. I would greatly appreciate the help.
Hardware & set up:
TCL TV.a) optical out ---> subwoofer
b) ARC / HDMI ---> Sonos Beam

Playing movies / TV through Roku & sounds works fine through the Sonos Beam. Nothing through the Subwoofers. I've tried putting the subwoofer cable in every hole that fits.
THANK YOU FOR READING THIS FAR. I NEED HELP :)
