my set up:
-cable box
-emerson vcr/dvd
-RCA tru flat television - connected to the above through cable via cable in to box, out/in to vcr/dvd, out to tv
-pro dynamics spl 3000 home theatre series subwoofer/amp with one center and 4 surround speakers

my dilemma:
I have the amp receiving/projecting sound via cable connect to tv monitor out with settings on tv as Sound-enhanced,SAP, Audio Output-fixed, and int. speakers set "for the tv to be center" - on the amp there are four typical connects for the speaker wire - 2 labeled "in" and 2 labeled "out" - can any one advise as to which wire should go where for sound to the smaller speakers?

You bought these from the back of a white van, didn't you?

Without a surround receiver, you are shit out of luck. These are not powered.

can you tell james is from new york? :rolleyes:;)

yes, babette, it sounds like you need a receiver, but you mention the word "amp", so i'm not sure what you have.

just to confirm, you have a total of 5 speakers (plus a sub) - is that correct? also, do you know if the sub is powered or not (if there is a power-cable coming out of the sub, then it's powered).

in any case, to get these to work you need to hook them up to a ht receiver (one that is capable of reproducing 5.1 surround sound). just about every ht receiver can do this now. you can get a decent one for about 200 bucks these days.

once you have the receiver, you can actually hook up all your other components to it as well.
