How can I hook up my LG 50" plasma to my Klipsh 2.0 ProMedia speakers?

How can I hook up my LG 50" plasma to my Klipsh 2.0 ProMedia speakers? Topic: Plasma research
May 26, 2019 / By Despina
Question: Back in August I purchased a 50" LG Plasma TV. Today, for Valentine's Day, I purchased the Klipsch 2.0 ProMedia speakers. Genrerally, these speakers are used for a computer, however, the sound quality is so great that I just bought them to use with my TV (my TV internal speakers are not great at all). My BF kept saying it would work with the TV, but when I get home I look at the coneections, and my Audio Output is "Optical Audio Out" and the ProMedia speakers have a normal 1/8" headphone jack. Is there such thing as an Optical Audio to 1/8" audio jack adapter? If so where do I get one, and if not, how the heck do I hook these up to my TV.... or did I just waste $160?

I'm sure your boyfriend has lots of wonderful qualities, but he make a real rookie mistake in assuming that. Shame on him for assuming, particularly since the TV has been there since August. There are Optical to line level converters out there. Make him do the research & buy it. Forgive him.

Just "splicing" into the speaker wires won't work. It leaves the speakers connected to the head unit internal amp. So in effect, the speakers are getting 2 separate audio signals, one from the internal amp and one from the added amp. With an aftermarket head unit, the best way is to simply leave the speaker wires from the head unit disconnected. Some head units, such as Alpine, allow you to "defeat" the internal amp. In that case, just splicing the speakers wires should work OK with the defeat turned ON.

My favourite amplifier ever, is the Memphis Belle.. 75X4 & 1100X1 5 channel amplifier. the only concern i ought to ever see, is once you've an concern with a channel, or amp dies.. All is lost. With assorted amplifiers, you may continually toss a alternative in at the same time as getting upkeep/new amp/warrenty replace ( delivery time etc..) I easily have run assorted audio equipment, with unmarried amps, at the same time as waiting for fixes, and characteristic like it as a lot as earlier the assorted amps ( 2 6 a million/2's and four - 10"subwoofers off of a 4 channel amp / 6 10's, 2 6 a million/2's and 2 5 a million/4 off of a 6 channel amp) desire that enables!!

Disconnect head unit wires, find output on the back of your deck, run it to your amp, ( usually RCA cables) connect your amp the same way you would to your sub, but switch the filter to high pass, there's a switch like this LPF < HPF Switch it to the HPF position and it will block the low pass frequencies, in effect running a standard speaker instead of a subwoofer

I did some searching and found this on Amazon that takes Optical and will give you left/right RCA outputs. You need a small "Y" adapter from Radio Shack to convert this to a 1/8 inch headphone jack for your speakers: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005DIRI6I/ref=... NOTE: I have done some more research. These box's do NOT support Dolby 5.1 but do support PCM. Make sure your Television has this option or these box's wont work.

Your best bet would be to get a stereo receiver that is capable of pushing 4 ohm loads....If your not too particular about how loud it will play then maybe a Lepai Amp would work for you...but the connections on those Lepai Amps are minimal....also the volume you get will not be huge but should be sufficient..

Sounds like you are using your tower as just an amplifier for your other devices. If this is so, any` replacement sterio amplifier will work, as long as the output impedance will match 6ohms. An electronics outlet store like Radio shack, Or Best buy, have some really inexpensive amplifiers. Go and look at what is available and choose one that fits your needs for size.
