I need TV speakers for my parents. How do I figure out which ones I need?
My parents are getting a little older and increasingly need to turn the volume on the TV up to hear dialog. We'd like to get them some speakers so that they don't have to turn it up so loud to hear it and could hear from a little further back from in the room.
The TV isn't new and doesn't have HDMI out, so this isn't a "Home Theater" question like this one
. Much closer to this one
, but even lower tech. We don't want to buy a receiver or amplifier and we'd like to avoid both wires and new remote controls if we can avoid it. We can get AC power to the speakers (speaker?) if we need to, but I just don't know what we need. I'm not there to look, but I believe we only have RCA-out. It's just a basic TV sitting in their living room and we'd like to amplify it. Can you help me figure out what I need?
A little time on Amazon points to the TV Ears brand:
Which is a brand I've never heard of, and I feel like it carries a connotation of "this is for old people" that something like Sony or Bose wouldn't.
So: Any advice on which speaker(s) we should be looking for would be very appreciated.
