Question about Sony KV-27XBR45 27" TV

1 Answer

Adding speakers to the output

I don't know if the speakers I hooked up to the tv required too many watts for the tv to push them or what because they made barely any noise(practictly none) so I was wondering if it is possible to add speakers. I thought it would be because it has 3 output channels or whatever in the back and one has only 2 things to plug it in (white and red for audio) there is no yellow. And it marks them as audio (var/fix) so what else would it be for? I'd appreciate the help.

Re: adding speakers to the output

You have connected the speakers to the audio line out sockets. These are meant for connection to an amplifier and are not suitable for what you are attempting. If there are no connections on the back of the TV specifically for loudspeakers then you will need to add an amplifier or Home cinema reciever.

Rca tv to hook up to home speakers

Unless the set has actual audio outputs it should not be done.

The set will have a very low audio output not intended for external systems--if you hook to wrong impedance speakers volume either will not work, be very low or even damage the audio circuit in the set

How can I get headphones to work with my Symphonic WF203 TV?

This set doesn't have a headphone jack, nor does it have RCA audio output jacks. Without one or the other, you're out of luck connecting headphones to this TV.

I remember a product some years ago that allowed adding headphones using a small microphone placed in front of the speaker. This was hooked to a little amplifier that ran the headphones so the volume could be independently controlled. It was marketed as a way to let "hearing-impaired" family members listen to TV shows without needing to make it uncomfortably loud for others. I haven't looked, but something similar might still be available. It's cumbersome, though, and needs power, plus maybe being costly if you find one.

It's possible to add a headphone jack, but you need to know how to do electronic soldering. Find a spot on the case where you can make a hole and mount a headphone jack, then wire it to the speakers. If you want the headphones to cut off the speakers when plugged in, you need a switching jack, and the speaker wires need to be cut and connected to the correct terminals. The switch built into the jack then disconnects the speakers when the headphone plug is in. If you don't need to turn off the speakers it's a little easier. You just need to wire from the jack to the speaker terminals. I've added jacks on quite a few sets. If you don't feel up to it and don't know anyone who is, you can see if a TV shop (if there are any left in your area!) would do it. (The shop I used to work for charged about $20, including the jack, but that was over 10 years ago now.)

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Can i connect spekers to tv without any sterio sisteem

Most of the Sony TVs have a sound output less that 4W or so. If you connect an external speaker directly, sthe speaker shoud match both in impedence and watts, to the internal speaker fitted inside the tv, otherwise the audio output ic inside the tv can get damaged.
You can connect the earphone output of the tv, if any provided on your tv, to the aux; input of your stereo. There is no trouble.

Want to add an external speaker to TV

If you have audio out RCA jacks then you can hook up some computer speakers that have RCA jack inputs. If you don't have audio outputs and your TV has a HOT chassis then you won't be able to do it. If your tv has a switching power supply then you can install a jack to TV speakers, so they disconect when you hook up your other speakers, if you try and hook up speaker to the TV speakers then the impedence will change, and your audio output IC will get hot and short out.

Speakers sound as though they are blown but when I removed them from the chasis they look ok with no tears or cracks. What else would cause them to sound like they are blown?

Hi Charlie

What happens when you gently press on the cone about the centre where the voice coil connects. If the speaker is scratchy going in and out, it will sound like **** also. This is caused by the voice coil becoming misaligned with the magnet center piece in side the speaker. There is no cure for a fault like this on that type of speaker. Replacement required unfortunately.

Seeing as you have it out of the TV, I would as a confirmation that they are stuffed, hook it up temporarily to another audio source, say a HiFi system or portable stereo, just to check them. don't use too much level as TV's only put out a couple of watts, and some HiFi's.... a couple of hundred :) if it still sounds bad (it wont sound great either whilst sitting in free air outside of its mountings), then it is faulty. The audio output stage of the Tv will have a faulty output chip, or perhaps dry solder joints about the output stages. Something that can be fixed if you are experienced with soldering circuit boards. Hope this helps you to sort it out. Ask me questions if you want, I am happy to talk further to you about the issue. Cheers

Sound Problems with JVC AV-35BP4 TV

The audio output stage for the speakers may have failed in the TV set. If the set has an earphone jack, it is also possible that the jack has a fault (very rare, but I have seen this).

Are there external speaker outputs to try other speakers?

Adding a audio jack to KV-32S42 sony TV

yes, just tap in at one of the speakers. The jack should have an internal switch so that the internal speaker is hooked up when the headphones are not in. Most TVs are now stereo (even though analog broadcast signals are mono) so may want to get a stereo jack and tie in from both speakers.

Aux speakers

Hi Greg,
It's not recommended to hook the speaker up to the TV as the Tv requires a certain impediance of speaker output so that the audio chip isn't damaged. I have seen, in my many years of experiance, people hook up speakers to the output of TVs and kill the sound totally. Of course, it's always your chioce, b but I don't recomment you use external Computer Speakers. Good Luck
