is it possible to connect speaker wire into RCA (white and red) to put on an older TV?

Yep i do it all the time on Car Stereo amps,

Edit: But it needs to be semi low wattage, so make sure you gotta a speaker hooked up to it too to draw up some watts so like this..

Stereo -> speaker -> hand made RCA -> tv

yes, if the tv has a speaker/audio input it should work.

then buy an rca plug and solder the wires onto it, one as ground the other as signal.

You want to send an unamplified signal to the tv via RCA inputs? Because the tv outputs won't be amplified enough for speakers.

Edit: okay, RCA cables are Left and Right they ahve 2 wires in the 1 wrapping, so in total the RED/WHITE RCA cable have 4 wires total.

Finishing:
So you would pull them apart cut em strip em back, typically 1 will be silver 1 will be copper. Copper is most commonly negative and silver is postive(not always the case).

Make sense?

I think he's trying to get the signal from his TV out to his speakers.

Yes you can do that, but like G.E.Nauticus said, the signal is unamplified. You could either buy an amplifier or turn the volume up really loud and see where that gets you.
