Here are the steps to connect them:

To optimize the audio settings, go to 'Display & Sounds' and select 'Audio'. Here, you can adjust the volume, equalizer, and audio output settings to ensure clear and immersive sound.
With these adjustments, you can enjoy your Firestick content on the projector with the best possible settings.
