That's a very generic question, but generally you should find on the back of your speakers a pair of connectors either marked (+) and (-) or colored in Red and Black (or both designations). Similarly in the back of your receiver you'll find two sets of these, one for the Right channel and the other for Left. All you need to do is to hook up your Left speaker to the Left Channel in the receiver with proper polarity (red to red and black to black, or (+) to (+) and (-) to (-)) and do the same for Left.
Now you can use speciallized speaker cable (available from Radio Shack etc.) or simple flexible stranded copper electrical cable from a Hardware store. The gauge (size) of cable depends on your receiver's / speaker's maximum output power (watts) and the estimated length of cable run depending on the positions of your equipment. Generally : a 100W set with a run of 20 meters (60ft) at 8 ohms will need no more than 12AWG (4 cable. But you can supply your exact info and we'll do the calc. for you.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?

your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

Can I hook these directly to my TV

No. The jacks on the back of your tv are line level. That means no power. To get the power, you need a reciever. Red and white RCA wires will go from your tv's out and the other end to an input on your reciever, and your speaker will be wired to the speaker out jacks on your reciever.

Need a wiring diagram for the gta4...please advise.

im not to familar with your amp but iv wired a lot of amps. You should just have your power ground remote and your sound. For your 12v+ You should not use anything less than about a 4 gauge wire fuzed and ran strait to your battery for this hook up your ground wire is to be no futher than a foot from your amp grounded to the vehicles chasis not over painted surface but a solid metal to metal contact with a good fitting for you connection on both ends. Then of coarse your remote which is labeld remote on your amp it is the only power source use to power your amp up and down it both completes the circuit and alows your amp to be manualy triggared with when you car reciever is on this remote wire is very important if you are doing the hook up your self you will want to make sure first that you if you have a factory radio in your vehicle to isolate that wire using a 12v tester. If you have an after market stereo in your vehicle such as a jvc kenwood alpine sony ect then you should have a blue wire with a white stip that is on the exsisting harness. That is your remote amp wire and it will tie in to your amps remote wire to power it up when the reciever is on or power it down when the reciever is off. My names Josh good luck with wiring the amp.

Why wont my personal setting save for my Kenwood KDC-X493 car CD reciever? This is my 2nd aftermarket cd reciever and just like the 1st one I'm still having this problem.

Make sure you have the +12VDC and the Ignition leads hooked up properly.

If your head unit is pulling is power off of the IGN lead, it will reset every time you turn your car off.
