You don't.

Much like most projectors, this model is like a computer monitor. It doesn't have any audio capabilities at all.

So, you connect speakers to your surround A/V receiver, or you connect cheap computer speakers to your source.

It is far more typical to use a surround A/V receiver for a front projection setup, but there are alternative solutions if needed.

Refurbished 5.1 surround sound setups with proper HDMI connectivity and real A/V receivers can be had for around $200 from
AV Integrated - Theater, whole house audio, and technology consultation during the build and installation process in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
