    Yes, those are not powered speakers. You will need a receiver, speaker wire, and cables to connect the tv and any other components to the receiver. Unfortunately, receivers are hard to find these days apparently. I would look at used ones on ebay or local.

    Second guy this week that thinks he owns poke speakers. It's POLK.

    Also, how long is the shipping wait approx?
  • Most of our Polk Soundbars will come with your basic wiring to get you started. Which model did you order?
