Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If your TV has no 'speaker wire terminals' or similar output ports/jacks, then you have to go through another component, an amplifier or stereo (or, computer, too) that then drives the speakers. This is done by switching the TV to 'External Speakers only' in its Menu settings for Audio. Then hooking up the TV's output (of whatever compatible kind) to the amplifier/stereo/player/etc.

If your TV has 'speaker wire terminals', it's simple and obvious enough.

Do you need specific directions for your specific model of TV? if so, please reply briefly letting me know, and I will provide specifics and details for your model of TV.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
