How to Connect Your Speakers

You need to wire your speakers correctly to obtain the best sound quality and a proper stereo image. Wiring should take a few minutes, but its important to do it carefully, since incorrect wiring

(such as reversed connections) can result in a poor stereo soundstage or poor bass. We recommend 18 gauge (or heavier) lamp cord or speaker wire for runs of up to 25 feet (8m), and thicker 16 gauge for longer runs. Strip 1 /2" (12mm) of insulation off the ends of each speaker cable to expose the two conductors, and tightly twist the wire strands. In installations where wiring is run on or through a building, use appropriate weatherproof wire that complies with local codes. See your dealer or other knowledgeable person for recommendations on suitable wiring.

To prevent electrical shock hazard, always switch off the amplifier or receiver when making connections to the speaker. When making all connections, be sure to connect the + (red) on the speaker to the + (red) on the amplifier, and the - (black) on the speaker to the (black) on the amplifier.

IMPORTANT: Typically, one side of the wire is smooth. Connect this side to the (black) connection. The other side has a rib or stripe or other marking. Connect this to the

+ (red) connection.

Using the five-way binding posts: The binding posts permit easy connection to banana plugs, spade lugs, and bare wire. Insert the wire in the hole and tighten.
