Hi sparkies, Welcome to the TechLore Community!

When you say you found us "by accident", can you explain what that means. I'm always looking for more ways to bring people to the site.

As far as your question goes, there are some possibilites, depending on the type of TV you have, but your hopes of wiring speakers directly to the TV probably won't work. While the TV does have an amplifier integrated to drive the TVs internal speakers, it isn't powerful enough to drive 4 "real" speakers.

Getting it to work won't be that difficult, but you'll need some sort of external amplfier. It doesn't need to be surround sound, but a 2 channel stereo receiver that can drive A+B channels simultaneously will do the job just fine. If it can't do A+B, you'll need to add an impedence matching speaker selector to do the job. Hit the used shops or ebay, and you'll find something pretty inexpensive.
