I want to attach a simple auxiliary or external speaker to my new flat screen TV. It has red and white audio outputs, but I can't find any speakers that I can wire to it. I know I can use a sound bar, but I'm looking for a cheaper solution. Can you hard-wire today's speakers to the new TVs and get audio output? How?

Generally speaking, those connections out from the TV do not respond to the volume control - so you will need to attach to something with volume control.

You probably want either a sound bar or a pair of active speakers (generally associated with computer speakers) and hopefully with a volume remote. Try a search in the forum, there have been threads in the past.

These speakers will fit the bill if you decide not to go the soundbar route. A friend of mine has these and he is quite happy with them.

If you want to go with something a little bit larger.
