      Answer

      The Polk Audio 5-1/4" Bookshelf Speakers are compatible with wired stereo systems. These speakers need a Stereo Receiver / Amp to power them, they do not have an Amp build in. They handle 100 watts @ peak power so they would be good for an Stereo Receiver / Amp with about 85 watt out put or as rear speakers on a surround system.

        No. You need an amplified output to drive these speakers, such as a receiver or audio amplifier.

            I would use the speakers for the back and a little bigger one in front but I am going to try all 4 front and back first.

            Answer

            These bookshelf speakers are excellent and but it depend on the DJ equipment powering the speakers. I have an Onkyo receiver I tested with my set and it work well at low-mid volume but higher volumes may be too much. If you have a stereo receiver and not I high end amplifier, these speakers will more than serve it purpose.

              Answer

              You will need speaker cable to connect the speaker to your stereo receiver. I'd recommend "Rocketfish - 50' Speaker Wire - 16AWG - Gold" cable.

                No, they will not. They have to be plugged in to a receiver in order to decode the channels for listening, and then the receiver can be plugged in to the TV.

                They have a keyhole cut into back of speaker that will allow them to be flush mounted with a well placed/secure screw. Or Best Buy sales a nice set of speaker mounts in their TV department. Usually located adjacent to the flat screen mounts.

                I need speakers to connect to my Sony CD player. I did have it connected by red/white cable to a receiver. Do I need a receiver? Or can I connect CD player directly to speakers with cables. There is no place for speaker wire on the CD player.   (4 Answers)

                  Answer

                  Sorry, can't hook the CD player directly to these speakers. The CD player has to have amplification before it can be heard. Therefore you must use a receiver or amplifier for these speakers. You may be able to hook the CD player directly to powered speakers without an amp or receiver but I am not 100% certain of this. Probably should ask a tech.
