Re: speaker hookup on back of tv
I looked up the specs on your TV and Toshiba says that all of the A/V jacks on it are inputs. It doesn't list any outputs for external speakers other than the Coax digital output jack for surround sound systems. This would explain why you don't get any sound. The website where I got this information is as follows...

short answer.....no. If you hook more than one speaker up to a single channel, it will lower the impedence and will damage the amp. You can hook up multiple speakers by using a speaker switch box between the speakers and the amp. This will match the impedence and should keep the amp from blowing.
Please add details of setup so I can help you. For example. My Directv box hooks into my HDTV HDMI. Sound is carried inside that cable. I then get sound on my TV from my Directv RCVR without any other hookup. But I do have more. I use an optical cable to go into my Denon 1312 TV/optical input. Since my Wii, PS3, VCR, and formerly Xbox360 all plug into the HDTV inputs and I use it to switch. The Denon is not HDMI capable so this is best for me.
This is the first thing I would try. hook the HDMI to your HDTV from the CATV/SAT box and turn up the sound on the TV. [Box and TV on and correct input used] If you hear audio, the hook it back up as before. Now, turn on the Denon to radio. and turn it up. Got sound?
NO: check speakers and speaker setting. Let's say you have speakers hooked to A but not B. is the selector on B or AB. That won't work. It has to match the hookup. If speakers are on A only, select A only, etc. Also check with known good speakers. Also check all cables to be plugged into the correct spot and plugged in fully.
Thanks PM me if you need more help.
yes you can. these are called "bi wired" speakers which means there's a hook up for the woofer and the tweeter individually. If your amp have just 2 speaker hookups it's no problem to hook the woofer/tweeter wires of each speaker together. If your amp had 4 speaker hookups, you could put the tweeters in 1 and the woofers in the other but it will still work fine with 2 speaker hookups.
hooking up speakers is easy you if your terminals are red and black you just match them up black on speaker means hook to black on the receiver doing a wrong hookup can reverse the phase of the speaker cause a distortion and eventual damage to speaker and coil.if you are rtunning just a stereo that allows two speakers select speaker you want for left side and put that on left of the stereo and hook it up as left and same for the right and if you have a home theater you hook it all up the same but you hook up the center put it in center front of the room as far back to wall as you can but dnt cover it up it should be lower than the front left and right or the main left and right speakers.then if the5re is surround you put those like say you have a square room you put them in the corners on the back wall.if you have rear speakers you put them on the back wall.make sure all speakers excepty rthe center are level and equal distance apart
Speakers don't hook directly to a TV unless your TV is unique and has its own amplifiers (not likely). Speakers are driven by amps, amps are usually inside a receiver and IT would connect to your TV to receive sound program. However, the TV usually has serious audio limitations (or we wouldn't need receivers and after-market speakers, right?) so why not get the audio IT monitors from the source itself and conenct it directly to the controlling receiver, which specializes in audio?
Real easy, get a RCA audio cable (red and white ends) that is long enough to go from the tv inputs to your receiver inputs. Plug one end into the audio out on the back of your tv, then plug other end into input on your receiver (tv, cd or vcr). Now everything going to tv will output to receiver also. You may have to go into the TV menu and under audio, set audio output to fixed. Then you can change the volume on your receiver which is best way to go.
**Advanced** If your TV and receiver has optical capability you can use an optical cable instead.
radelle1967, I had originally bough these speakers for the sole purpose of connecting them to my 26" LCD Vizio television. I quickly realized that these speakers were not made for a television, so I just kept them connected to my desktop PC. However, one day I asked my buddy from college to look at them and see what he thought. It took him a while to figure it out, but here is how I have them hooked up. I can not guarantee that this will work on any other television set, but it does on mine. On the back of my Vizio television there is a hookup called "optional audio," which is located beneath the yellow, red, and white hookups. I hooked a 3-way headphone splitter into the "optional audio" hookup and then plugged the three cables from the speakers into the splitter. Hooking up your speakers like this works very good and the sound is equally distributed between all speakers. However, there is a setting on my television under the sound menu that enables you to turn "surround" on. I had been told that by using a 3-way headphone splitter I wouldn't be able to get true surround sound, but turning on this option on my television actually allows this to be accomplished.
Hope this works for you. I purchased the 3-way splitter at radioshack and it was under $10. If your television does not have an "optional audio" hookup, you could probably try an RCA connector with just the red and white hookups that split into one and then connect the 3-way splitter to that.
RB BR top row is A speaker connections (from the rear)
right +- -+ left and the row below is the B speaker connections in the same manner. Check that you have not plugged your audio source device into the Phono preamp as this will definatly produce "overdrive" Only a turntable should be plugged into the Phono input, and in saying that, there are some turntables about these days that have an preamp built in line > If yous has then it should be connected to anything other than the Phono input. Any more questions, hit me back here and i will try to help you.
