What do you have for rear speakers? Would probably need to run speaker cable if you have a receiver. A sound bar with rear speakers generally come with their own cables, those wouldn't work.

I can't run speaker cable, there's no conduit and the attic isn't clear enough for me to risk going up there. So if I can use the component cable that'd be preferable

Component cable is an old analog standard for video though.

Would Vizio 5.1 sound bars work? The sound bar connects to the TV, but the sub is wireless. The back speakers are wired to the sub. No cables from sound bar to back speakers and sub, but cables from sub to back speakers.

Or are you trying to figure out a set up with the existing cable infrastructure?

I'll probably sell my old logitech speaker/sub and go the vizio route. The only option for physical wiring are those component cables

I use this one:

https://www.vizio.com/en-ca/audio/so.../sb4551d5.html

It's fantastic and solved the wiring problem with no issue. Just have the sub next to my sectional, run the wires from the sub to the rear speakers and put them on the back of the couch. If your couch has a bit of clearance you can also put the sub underneath laying flat - it doesn't quite fit in my setup.

Either way the 5.1 soundbar with the wireless sub and 2 rears is the easiest way to get decent surround.

Dumb question, did you try looking into adapters? ie: Component to HDMI.

https://www.amazon.ca/JBingGG-Compon...gateway&sr=8-4

Assuming the transfer rate is still acceptable for sound and there's no significant delay, maybe it could work?

EDIT:

https://www.amazon.com/Speaker-Adapt.../dp/B013Z75RD4

Or something like RCA/speaker wire?

Wireless sub set up is probably easier though.

I've never used this type of stuff before, so I don't know if it works or not. It might not be the worst idea to buy the adapters to try it out. Worst case scenario, it doesn't work or performance is inadequate, return to Amazon requesting for a full refund saying that it doesn't work, then go plan B. If it works, then great.
