I have a Sony XBR TV that I would like to connect two 250 watt external acoustic speakers. Does anyone know if I can safely do this or am I taking a chance of blowing the TV amplifier? I have no external amplifier to pass through. Thanks for any ideas on this subject.

if they have rca plugs, no
The speakers have no plug connections just two wire speaker wire clip on connections. Is this the same as rca connections but without the plug?

From what I can see in Google, the XBR has no external speaker connections (only line-level).

The internal amplifiers are 15 Watts per channel, so you would have to open it up, disconnect the internal speakers, wire in the external speakers - and then you will still only get the 15 Watts per channel.

You would also need to check the impedance of the speakers, unless they are the same as those in the TV you will overlaod the internal amp (if the external speakers are lower in impedance) or you will get less sound (if they are higher).

Either way you will not get more sound than the internal amp can deliver. 15 Watts.

From what your saying it doesn't sound like a good idea for me to try to hook up two 250 watt speakers to my XBR TV. If I can't use them for my tv will probably try to sell them on EBay. Any idea what price range I should set. Don't know much about them since someone gave them to my daughters about 5 years ago.
