By James Clark

Many stereo systems are equipped with two terminals on the rear for connecting an FM antenna.

An FM (frequency modulation) antenna connected to a stereo system can help a receiver pull in better signals from FM radio stations. Stereo receivers typically have a pair of FM antenna connectors on the back of the unit. The screws for the two connectors hold the wire leads to feed the antenna signal to the stereo's receiver.

Loosen the two screws labeled "FM ANT" on the back of the receiver.

Wrap the two antenna wires separately around the metal posts below the screw heads.

Tighten the connections with a screwdriver.

Place the antenna base near a window or exterior wall and adjust the telescoping antenna rods for the best reception.
