Sound is weak, ... do I need speaker for its booster?

Hi:
Thanks all for the responses and suggestions. I really appreciate them all.

This morning, I got Emerson TV from local Wal-Mart, but there is an issue which is 'sound.' The sound is weak, I need to make a bar of sound '70' or more unlike CRT TV, a sound of which is 26 and it's pretty loud, but I like it. Also, The Emerson-sound coming from the bottom of the TV, although picture is not bad.

Do I need a speaker to supplement a good and quality sound?
If that's a case, What brand name of speaker do you recommend?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Are you using HDMI, S Jack, RG 6, or RCA connectors from your source to the TV?

Sounds like it's the TV if your using the built in speakers. Maybe an amp and decent speakers plugged into the RCA jacks if you have sound out jacks. I'd probably just return it saying the sound is bad and get a different make or model. If every one they have is from the same lot just trading for another one of the same make and model may not help.

A sound bar that sits below the TV is very easy to install and relatively cheap...if you don't have a DVR or anything in the signal path..you shouldn't have any audio delay issues.

You really won't find any tv that has decent audio.

You would need a speaker and an amplifier.
What makes a pretty decent sound system for the money is an amplified speaker system and subwoofer for a computer.

You need a headphone jack for this to work.
You also need to make sure that there is a subwoofer and not just a speaker system with only two spkrs as it would not be any better than what you have.

What brand name of Speaker is recommendable for media, music and all others?

Hi:
Over the months, I've been using the PC as not only Internet-surfings but also media, some music and others, all of which needs a good and clear sound to listen and watch for a long period of time, more than a half of hour or more.

What brand name of Speaker is recommendable for those good and clear sound-needed purposes?

Thanks for your help in advance.

There are a lot of good ones out there, I'm partial to Klipsch speakers but they are by no means the only good one. Personally, I want to listen to speakers before I buy them if I'm spending a chunk of change on them.

The new flat screen TVs have inherently poor sound quality because the speakers are in the back. Some are better than others but, IMO, it takes a bit of research ahead of time to make sure you get one with good enough sound that you can use it alone.

Thread merged with the one you have going about tv sound. Pretty much the same ?

There is no one brand where every speaker model is superior.
Plus, you are not only needing to buy a speaker, you will need an amplifier as well.
I previously suggested a computer speaker system as they have a built in amplifier and tend to be less expensive than buying an amplifier and speaker separately.

If we knew how much you wanted to spend it would be quite helpful in offering you a suggestion.
Prices vary quite a bit!
