I am building a very odd project, and to make a long story short, this is the next phase of it. I took a 27" stereo television out of its cabinet and it has two 2.5 watt/8 ohm speakers attached to it from the circuit board. I would like to add two additional speakers to this set up, but am not sure how to do it or if its possible. I guess I should bore you with some of the other details so you can get a full understanding of what I’m trying to do.
I purchased an old sit-down driving arcade cabinet and I am converting it to a dedicated xbox driving game. I installed the monitor from the old tv cabinet into the arcade cabinet yesterday, now I want to move on to the speaker portion. The seat for the driving cabinet has two speakers built in to the headrest and the cabinet front has two speakers built in to itself also. (total of four speakers) The problem, as I said before, is that the tv that I installed only has two speakers coming off of the circuit board and I want to wire up the four that I have on the arcade cabinet. How can I do this? I don’t know what restrictions I am up against as far as ohms and wattage. ( I don’t know anything about ohms or wattage) I thought that I could just snip the old speakers off of the tv circuit board and wire a set of two speakers for the left side and a set of two speakers for the right side and be done with it. I asked around on one of the web sites that I visit and it doesn’t sound like thats possible without problems. Can you give me some guidance please? I can also send some pictures of the project if my description didn’t make sense.
