Hi Everyone,

I think this is in the right section, if not I hope it will give me a starting point.

My dad has just been given an old 42" panasonic plasma screen with no tuner and speakers.

I have sourced him a freeview box and split the video via phone to bnc and the L + R audio via phono's to 3.5ml jack which connects to an old stereo and it works a treat.

He now tells me he wants some nice little speakers to be wall mounted instead of the old stereo.

My question is, do I just get speakers and if so where from and will the tv be able to power them as I am aware there is a limit. Or do I get a nice little Teac or Denon system and just mount the speakers?

Thanks for any guidance

Clyde

[/quote]I take it you are refering to a Model like the PW42 then say a 5/6/7 ? if so I have one of these in my bed room (mine being a series 5) The best way to hook up the freeview box is to use the PC input on the screen, you can get a good RGB scart to PC input from KEENE electronics. As far as the speekers goes the set has a internal amp so simply plug the end of the wire into the spring loaded terminals on the rear of the screen.

Hi,

Thanks for the replies, just got the model number for the TV, it is TH42PW3.

D.J.Krime - should I be careful about what size speakers I attach to the TV? I noticed there is a 6amp warning on the back, I have attached some real small plastic things, they are powered but they have no bass cause they are such a bad speaker.

Must say I am amazed by the picture quality of such an old screen.

Thanks

You could go for something like these http://www.richersounds.com/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=ELTA-CONCEPT-MINI-BC or search on EBAY for the correct Panasonic ones that slot onto the side of the screen but these can be quite expensive if you can find them that is.

Again thanks for your continuing help.

The Eltax speaks seem like a winner to me!, saves on adding an amp.

I did look for the original speakers for the TV, but on ebay and places they were gonna be about £200.

Another quick one, can I have two inputs running to the tv? i.e one over the video BNC input and one through the PC or component inputs.

Thanks
