    Can I hook up external speakers to my tv without going through an amplifier?  I also have an older JVC television and I can hook speakers to the back of it and they work fine.  When I try the same thing with the KV27FS100L no sound comes from the speakers (I used the on-screen menu to turn the speaker off, etc.).  I would really like to do this using the small speakers that I have and not go through an amplifier or any other equipment.  Help....
    Thanks

    funbun1- Welcome to Agoraquest. In the audio menu, is the Audio MTS set to Auto SAP? Try setting Audio MTS to stereo or mono. If that works, also in the audio menu, you can set the audio out to Variable if you want to adjust the volume through the tv, or Fixed if it's connected to a stereo.

    I have tried all three... mono, stereo and auto SAP.  The speakers aren't going through a receiver, they are plugged into the tv audio out plugs.   I think a might have to get speakers with a power supply.  Thanks for the welcome.. this is a fun place to look around.

    funbun1- I'm pretty sure that's the case, you need powered speakers, one way or the other. In case I'm wrong, why not give Sony customer service a call first. But, if you need an inexpensive solution, have you looked into a HTIB? Crutchfield has 2 inexpensive Sony HTIB's; $229.99 & $399.99 (bottom of the page).

    Let me know what your thoughts on these are.

    Too much equipment.  I use the speakers at night with the volume low.  I will call Sony tomorrow though and see what they say.   Thanks.

    funbun1,

    I pretty sure that you are going to find out that those are low level(signal) outputs and that you will indeed have to use an an amplified or powered speaker(s) to work. An inexpensive pair of computer self powered speakers might be all you need for that low volume level night listening. Depending on the type you might need to convert the 3.5mm jack on the speakers to a RCA connector.

    Thanks, I think I have some of those speakers around somewhere.  I was having a hard time because the JVC doesn't require amplified speakers... glad I asked.
