The speakers on your TV set can blow out for various reasons, leaving you with distorted and buzzing audio. Extended use at high volumes, too much bass frequency and old age all account for damaged speakers. Fortunately, you can replace many TV speakers using household tools. The most important part is ordering replacement speakers from your TV's manufacturer to ensure they will fit.

Things you need
Turn off and unplug the TV to avoid any risk of electric shock. Allow the TV to sit for a half-hour before beginning to allow static electricity to dissipate.
Undo and remove the screws on the TV's shell using a screwdriver. Place the screws somewhere safe. Carefully pull the plastic shell on the front of the TV off and set it aside, exposing the speakers.
Unplug the speaker wires from the back of both speakers. Remove the screws keeping the speakers in place and carefully remove each speaker.
Set the replacement speaker in place of the old one and replace the screws. Do this on both sides. Plug the speaker wires into the back of each speaker, place the plastic shell back onto the TV and replace the screws you removed in Step 2.
