TV speaker help
« on: June 08, 2015, 11:39:20 AM »
I have a 26in TV in my kitchen.  The sound is so bad/low....it's like the commercial.   :grin:

I'd like to put some speakers on it, but the space is small, so the speakers have to be small.  powered is fine/good.    wondered if anyone had any recs?

I know this is not really computer, but it's kind of tech.

I'm guessing a sound bar is a bit much?

if it was small.  I have a surround sound system in the LR, but that's way to much for the kitchen.

What kind of ouputs do you have on your tv Kathy? Anything digital or a analog speaker jack?

analog.  I have had this for awhile, just finally fed up with trying to watch it over the sound of cooking food  :-D

I have speakers from another sound system and plugged them in, but no joy.  I am thinking I need a powered set to make this work properly?

Most likely the tv only sends signal and you will need something powered.

that's my thought.  I might try to set up this surround sound system I have and see if I can make it fit.  I have an old PS2 under it now for DVD play, but don't use it much.  could swap it for the control box and see how that works.  It's a 5 speaker system, so it will probably blow me out of the kitchen  :-D

The solution turned out to be a compromise.  I couldn't find what I wanted that would fit in the space, or wouldn't cost 100s of dollars.

What I did find was a nice little little waterproof/bluetooth/usb powered/ plugs into speaker jack, speaker.

It's not a total fix, but the sound from this speaker is much better than from the TV when I have to turn it up.  + it's small, so it fits in the space. 

Thanks to the Best Buy guy who really knew what was in the store and helped me weed though a bunch of stuff to find this little gem.
