LG Plasma TV sets are manufactured with different input jacks to connect a variety of audio-video components, including self-powered speakers. You must use speakers with a built-in amplifier because the audio output on the LG television is line-level only. That means it does not produce enough power to drive the volume on a speaker. A set of desktop computer speakers make an ideal solution for expanding the audio of your LG TV since they take up little space, are self-powered and connect in seconds with a Y-adaptor audio cable.
