Can you hook up studio monitors to a TV? That’s a question many people ask, but the answer is yes. Many home theater speakers manufacturers recommend using a theater box along with your main home theater system in order to get the best sound quality and avoid interference from other electronics within the room. The box mounts behind the television, but it’s possible to mount it on the wall, and some even mount it on the ceiling!
In theory, you could just put normal speakers right behind the screen and still get excellent sound quality. However, in reality most people don’t have that much space, and they also like to be able to customize their sound experience. That’s why many people are now trying to use their room as a mixing board for their audio mixing, rather than relying on a television.
And just how can you hook up studio monitors to a TV? Actually, there are two ways to go about this… the hard way, and the easy way. Actually, the hard way is pretty simple: You need to use an active sound system for your TV, and a separate amp for your home theater system.
By using separate amps, or receivers for each speaker, you can send the signal from the TV to each individual amp, which then sends it to the speakers. This means you can get the full surround sound effect from all of your speakers, without having to use up all of your amplifiers. It also means you can use less speaker wire and spend less money on the individual speakers.
And the easy way? If you have a properly configured home theater system in your house, with the right cables and home theater speakers, then you can hook up your home theater speakers to your TV, using speakers with a subwoofer connected to the back of the TV. Simply run these speakers along with the TV, and voila! You’re ready to watch any DVD or Blu-Ray in the full cinematic effect.
So can you hook up studio monitors to a TV? Honestly, yes, you can. The good news is that you don’t need additional equipment. The bad news is that it can be a little bit difficult. Fortunately, if you do your homework and pay attention to sound quality, you can achieve the sound quality you want. Good luck!
