I would just use left over stereo speakers. There may be a recession
(In my bathroom mounted on a board in the corner of the ceiling I have
a woofer/tweeter combination from a 1930's record player. Connected
to the tv and sounds pretty good. I've been using them for about 35
years, in my apt. in NY and my house near Baltimore._

Well, in my case it was 12 years in Brooklyn, 9 with the speakers in
the bathroom, and 26 in Baltimore. You're a strong man.
I liked the speakers so much I took them with me when I left the
apartment. I guess I would have had to remove them regardless,
although I didn't remove the outside shelf for the air conditioner (so
I wouldn't drop it from the fifth floor when I was putting it in or
out (like happened in Seinfeld's apartment) or the one outside the
kitchen window where I used to charcoal grill The second was only 12
inches by 16 inches. Once when I shut the window during the lighter
fluid stage, I broke the window from the heat, and one time the people
next door called to say perhaps the apartment was on fire. But the
other 20 or 30 times it worked fine.
Sennheiser has great sound, top rated by CR IIRC. Pricey but worth
Saw those today at the audiologist, and TV Ears, too. TV Ears, maybe
Senheiser has the ability of picking up movie signals 95
m(k)hz(cycles,whatever), allowing you to use them at theaters, too.
I bought a pair of Sennheiser in the late 60's, at then the unheard of price
of $60. They were the first earphones I had seen that didn't cup the ears
and make it feel like you'd been pounded in the head by two huge clapping
hands after half an hour. They had foam pads and sat on the outside of the
ears, the pads being about two inches round. Listening to room sounds at
the same time as recorded sounds was unique at that time. They sounded
GREAT! Got separated from them somewhere over the years.
I would suggest buying a HTIB. (Home Theater In a Box)
They come with a surround sound receiver, 5 speakers and a subwoofer.
Stating price is just over $100.00. For about $225.00 you can actually
get something half decent.
