Question: Connecting speakers to T.V -

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My gf picked me up an early Christmas present last night - a set of Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers.

I currently have a 52" Sharp LCD 1080p and was wondering if/ what the best possible way to hook them up to my TV would be? I have not checked my cable box yet to see if I can route them that way (I have ATT Uverse if you happen know) or is there an adapter that would be best? I would prefer not to buy a receiver or something expensive at this time, but will if it's the only option in the future.

Also, would it be a improvement from the current speakers set up with the tv?

If not, I will use them solely attached to my computer :-/

Thank you!

I've got a Logitech 2.1 system hooked up to my 42" Toshiba Regza, while not audiophile quality, it's definitely a night and day difference over the standard TV speakers. The only issue I have with it is the volume control is on the speaker (TV remote won't change it)

From looking at your TV on the link you posted, you'll need an adapter to go from stereo RCA to female aux to connect to the audio out. (you could plug it into the headphone jack, but then the tv speakers won't work at all) That's how I set up mine.


P.s. Why not hook the computer up to the tv

I don't need audiophile quality, but I would like it to be an upgrade vs the stock speakers on the tv I can see the volume button being a pain as I don't have a wireless controller for it, but I can get over that if the sound quality is worth it.

Do you have a link to an adapter for it?

Also, my computer is hooked up to my PC at home. I can play dvd/music from off my computer through hdmi to my tv and use the speaker setup, but I would like regular t.v and xbox to play through my new speaker setup as well, and not the through the tv speakers.

According to TigerDirect, theres an audio out, "Outputs: Analog Audio".

EDIT: I just saw a picture of the input/output. Yes it's possible to connect your Klipsch to your T.V.
However, you will need a 3.5mm to RCA converter. You can find one on monoprice, ebay, or any electronics/audio store.

this is what you would need to hook up to the audio out on your tv:

Then just turn the volume for your tv all the way down and you have a decent setup.

Awesome. I will stop by fry's on the way home and pick it up!

Thank you gentlemen, + for the quick help

Also, would you say it's a decent upgrade from the T.V. stock speakers?
