Connecting an HDTV to Harmon Kardon computer speakers can offer big sound in a small space.

Harmon Kardon computer speakers can be quickly connected to an HDTV with a Y-adapter to convert the TV output jacks into a single jack that will work with the speaker system. The Harmon Kardon speakers are self-powered, so the HDTV will not face any power demands by adding additional sound. Since the computer speakers also come with a subwoofer, low-frequency bass response should be improved over the built-in speakers in the TV set.
