Will this work!?
I want to hook up speakers to my TV and the only audio output is for a "COAXIAL Output"

1. Coaxial Cable

2. Coaxial ---> RCA splitter

3. Amp (Would you suggest one of these over the other?)
1. Lepai Tripath TA2020 Class-T Hi-Fi Audio Amp w/Power Supply 310-300 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=310-300)

I have two extra 6" car speakers which I plan to build an enclosure for and use it for my flat screen tv. Im having a hard time figuring out how to wire them directly to my tv. The only audio output available on my television is a "coaxial audio cable" output. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas ?

post a pic of your TV outputs...most newer flatscreens have a small pin jack or a set of RCA audio outputs....

I'd just get a receiver off Craigslist or a pawn shop and run RCA's out from the TV to the receiver. Old school receivers are pretty cheap....

Will the Y splitter and external amplifier work though? the links I posted above

You can use the headphone jack to RCAs if you cant find an adapter I have one for $12 shipped and will include two rca female couplings if you have to make it longer ....This will also mute the crappy internal factory speakers so your sound will come through only the new speaker system but youll have to go into a spall amp then too speakers

I called radioshack and they told me coaxial input/outputs are different shape than 3.2mm headphone jacks. I think i'm going to order the 3 items above (coaxial cable, coaxial/rca splitter, mini amp) and hope they work
thanks
