When OP started the thread, I wasn't thinking of basically just computer/external speakers, but proper speakers/theater style sound, that amplifies audio output, especially with the wireless requirement.
These are Bose model 101 Music Monitors. Heh. Circa 1984.

I had gotten them for DH's birthday many years ago.

Thanks guys! May have to play around with them!

Those are bullet proof speakers. While "big" and "unsightly" by modern BOSE standards, they are still really SOLID speakers. I am sure you could have LOADS of life left in them. If I'm not mistaken, the housing/enclosures on those are even suitable for outdoor use.

They would still certainly make a decent pair of front channel speakers.

tatt is correct that impedance matching will deliver optimal performance, but an unbalanced output, or line out, or even headphones out will work for the most part.

your speakers are 4 ohm. try fo find out from the user manual if your tv has a 4 ohm or 8 ohm output.

both will work, but if you connect 4 ohm speakers to an 8 ohm output, you could blow the cone if you crank the audio to max.

Awright, I am stoked! I remember they were top of the line in, um, 1984.

Nowadays, the chances of me blowing them out are probably not happening....

Thanks guys!

These are what I use. Cambridge SoundWorks The Soundworks II Speaker System for Computer, PC, Mac, iPod, iPhone : Promotions


The stands and volume control are removable and there are mounts on the back, I have them mounted to the wall with a simple screw and use paintable wire covers to hide the wires. They give a nice full sound and reproduce voices very well, which can be a problem with some speaker systems that aren't intended for TV. Music sounds good as well

The amplifier is in the subwoofer, so no receiver required.

My receiver quit working about the same time that I bought this house and I decided that I didn't want the bother or the expense of a new receiver and taking the time to run, as well as hide a bunch of surround speaker wires. This gives a nice, full sound and is nice for music, it works well for now.
