    Hi all, I have a Toshiba 36ZP48 with the built-in Dolby Digital surround sound processor and the TV has external front and rear surround sounds speakers wired up with the supplied 8 ohm 10 W minimum speakers. Is there any way or indeed any audio benefit to somehow wiring a mains powered sub-woofer into this setup? If so, could anyone recommend a sub-woofer around the 200 pound range ideal for this setup.

    Long term I will move to a dedicated receiver and better speakers but I would like to be able to use whatever sub-woofer I add now to the mix later on.

    Many thanks,
    Ian.

    Hi...

    I've been looking to improve the sound from this TV but without the expense and inconvenience of buying and using an AV amp and considering the poor setup of my room. I want to use reasonable components with an ultimate view to having a full blown AV system upgarded in stages.

    I replaced the external front speakers with Monitor audio Radius 90's driven directly by the TV.
    I use the TV rear pre-out via a power amp to drive some big rear speakers.
    Finally i have a REL quake sub for better bass. This has an input specifically linked to speaker ouputs - i connect this to the front surrounds. I know this is not ideal but it does sound great and is very tidy! The sub transforms action movies - but be carefull if you have neighbours....

    Now to find out how to replace the internal center speaker with an external one - anybody had any success with this? I'll start a post on the TV forum...
