As Yugo stated , nope! You need a surround sound receiver. TV's won't have an active powered signal coming out of their output, so it won't power the in-wall receivers. Do an exact count of the speakers in the wall, and are they all the same size speakers?

I usually wouldn't feed an active powered signal via a RCA plug, so I would be surprised if the RCA went to a speaker expecting a speaker level signal.
