Hello, The "Seekers"? There's no such part on this TV. Are you referring to the speakers?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Speakers yes.

I don't want to call you. The site is sending that automatically- I have no control over it. Please stand by.

Okay there's bad news here and the speakers for this set are not available for purchase or resale anywhere. This is common when TV's are over 5 years of age and parts become unavailable. There is a workaround however, which will fix the sound and that is to purchase an inexpensive set of self powered speakers or soundbar and connect them to the TV's Audio Out port- which will essentially bypass the TV's speakers. The cost and time of opening up the set to replace it's internal speakers is going to be on par with what an external sound system will run you anyhow. Best Buy has many options available and below is a good example of a speaker that will work:

That soundbar will connect to the Audio Out jack on the back of the TV and then in the TV MENU you will go into teh sound/audio settings and shut off the TV speakers.

If you need further assistance let me know. PLEASE DO click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. That is how the site credits me for my work.

Do you need further assistance with this, or would you like me to continue searching for perhaps a set of used Hitachi speakers- meaning you still want to disassemble the TV?
