flat screen conversion

I have a 1999 Winnebago Suncruiser. i installed a flat screen when I removed the old CRT type tv. I would like to keep the speaker system connected to the old tv. Have any of you "run the traps" associated with this? the new flat screen output doesn't drive the speakers system. I am purchasing a cheap audio amplifier. your experience and fix.

My new flat screen only had an optical cable output for sound. I bought a surround sound system (with DVD) that had optical cable input. I hooked up my speakers to the surround sound and all works well.

I did the same swap in my 1999 Winnebago Adventurer. Here is the amplifier I bought from Amazon that did the trick. It has a mini plug input that takes the headphone output from the TV, so installation is a cinch. It can run off of 12 volt power directly when boondocking or 110 volts through its adapter when plugged in at a campsite. It has a flange to mount it so it doesn't move around, and a lighted dial that lets you know it's on so you don't forget to turn it off and save batery power when boondocking. Works great. Good luck and maybe I'll see you down the road.

I replaced my old TV about five years ago with a flat screen unit I and added a set of wireless stereo speakers that I picked up on Amazon. The speakers plug into any 110 ac outlet they each contain there own amp and volume control and work great. I added a audio switcher so I can change between the TV and CD player.

My 03 Fleetwood Revolution had a DVD player attached to the old CRT. New Samsung TV has optical cable running to DVD player so TV sound plays through existing surround sound, as well as DVD sound.

Iím not sure if your Suncruiser has the same sound system as my Horizons DHS QSurround5.1 sound system. If it does, I used an impedence converter to interface my new Samsung TV to it. It required taking the back off the TV and splicing into the speakers to get it to work but that sounds harder than it actually was. After that it was plug and play.
