Improving the audio experience
March 24, 2017 3:01am CST
Do you also put additional speakers to your television just to improve the overall audio experience when watching from it? In most LCD/LED TVs today, there is already an audio setting for different watching experience. There's the Sport, News, Movie, Music, etc. There is also additional setting for the woofer but the built in speakers isn't enough to give out that deep bass. So I just bought a 2.1 speaker on sale and I'm planning to install it in our TV to have a better audio experience since we're watching movies more often than of the local channels. It just feels better for us when hearing the sound effects clearer as well as the movie soundtracks when they start playing because we love listening to music too. So are you satisfied with the TV's built in speakers?

When we bought our current HD TV to replace the previous LED TV, we were advised not to use the TV's built-in speakers because the vibration caused by the speakers (especially when you're used to high volume) is the reason the screen gets easily damaged. Therefore, I attached our TV's audio to my computer's 5.1 Altec Lansing speaker system's auxiliary input.

@aeisle Yes, it's not a marketing strategy because the appliance store personnel knew I had Altec Lansing speakers. I'm sure you know better than me because you're a technical person but that's what my friend (who owns a computer store and shop and was a Dean of Computer Sciences and also an IT professional) said. Our listening pleasure has greatly improved with the current set-up though it's sometimes cumbersome to be using two remote controls (one for the TV and the other for the Altec Lansing) aside from activating the AVR from where my Altec Lansing is connected to.
No not really satisfied with tv speakers. I actually need to have at least a booper so I could enjoy my movies. Good bass and treble. My room is sound proof anyway, and I want my movies very loud so I can have that theater ambiance hahahahha
Wow! That's awesome! How did you sound proof your room? It is from paint or did you really have sound proofings materials installed in the walls? I think you should also have surround speaker but you need to have a compatible movie that can produce that effect too. Now that would be real theater experience! and don't forget to turn off the lights.
Yes the speakers are already good. Maybe we just want that theatrical feel at home when watching movies since we don't go to movie houses that often. The speakers were not really a significant investment from our part because it only costs less than a week's worth of daily Starbucks. . Unless maybe if you will get from the top brands of speakers.

The speaker in my little TV is not good. But I don't watch TV for an audio experience. I have a dedicated vintage stereo that is very good. Right now I am using vintage Acoustic Research AR-3a speakers and a conrad-johnson amplifier with an NAD preamplifier in my audio system.
