    well my tv is a bit old so it doesn't have a suitable audio output. and i would be trying to eliminate the tv speakers and just use pc speakers...in my opinion they would sound better..not crackly.

    in your tv menu you have the option somewhere to cut off the built in sound do this, then plug up your pc speakers,

    If there is a headphone jack on the t.v you can just plug them into there.

    If you have a 5.1 surround sound speakers then you should of received or can purchase an adapter to convert them into red & white RCA jacks. Then you can purchase a RCA to 3.5 mm Jack that turns it into one jack that goes into the headphone jack. (or just use the RCA jacks into the t.v if you wished)

    Thats my current setup actually ^

    you must not be reading what ive wrote correct. if said about 3 times that i cannot plug in the pc speakers to my tv. if it was that simple would i be asking? i was wondering if it was possible to wire them into the tvs speakers or something like that.

    SO your simply looking for a RCA-to-1/8" Y cable (found at RadioShack)


    sorry i guess i didn't understand
    if your speakers only have a male connection- http://www.radioshack.com/sm-gold-series-audio-y-adapter-stereo-phone-jack-to-rca--pi-2103710.html

    if your speakers only have a female connection- http://www.radioshack.com/sm-monste...400-mkii-stereo-rca-1-8-mini--pi-2110498.html

    if your speakers have both then its easier to go male
    it's cheaper to go male too
