View Full Version : need help creating sound bar

02-26-2011, 08:06 PM
ok i am trying to take my old boombox stero speakers aswell as a computer subwoofer that i have lost the power supply to. i plan on taking all the speakers out of the boombox setup and creating a sound bar to mount above my headboard so i can create somewhat of a surround sound and then have the subwoofer off to the side. what im wondering is how do i get power to the speakers and how do i connect them to the tv. the subwoofer ran off a power supply so i figure i can do the same for the old speakers.
thanks for the help

Dude, you can't just slap any old speakers in something and call it a day. There is MUCH more science to home theater speakers than you obviously are aware of, little things like properly designed crossovers to start. Here are a few places to check out where you can do a proper setup for your price range: Speaker Design Works (http://www.speakerdesignworks.com/), undefinition (http://sites.google.com/site/undefinition/diy), HTGuide Forum - Mission Possible DIY (http://www.htguide.com/forum/forumdisplay.php4?f=6), and DIY Speakers and Subs - AVS Forum (http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/forumdisplay.php?f=155)
