I am trying to hook up speakers from a boom box to my tv. The tv has RCA female connection. I have the RCA male wire and connector. How do I connect.

i dont think its possible to connect speaker wire to RCA directly. since RCA is a low level input, whereas speaker wires carry high current.

Both MEgamer and Tilweh are correct. The only way to know if that is a low current or high current output is the name.

If it says Audio Output then it's a low current output. This requires Amplifications, AMP or a Booster.
If it says Speaker Output then it's a high current output. This connect directly to speaker, this type of output usually accompanied with wattage and Impedance.
