And why are they often on the rear nowadays. idk how designers considered this was an improvement?
Anyway, I need to move on & upgrade from my hulking 2004 sony trinitron. I'm thinking about purchasing a modern TV around 24-36" screen. If you have experience of these and can offer any advice regarding Do's/Donts then fire away

The move to rear/downward firing speakers came in response to the trend towards slim bezels, with the benefits to design outweighing the benefits to audio quality when it comes to marketing.

To answer your original question, if you're looking at 24"-36" TVs then you're likely to be looking at very cheap options, which generally have speakers that are unremarkable at best and tinny crap at worst.

You'll probably need to get a soundbar, which can set you back 100-200 pounds for a decent one.
