To avoid damaging your amplifier/receiver, please make sure the power is switched off before making or changing any connections.
The quality of the cables and the connections influence sound reproduction. Choose a speaker cable that suits your equipment and musical taste. Always use equal lengths of cables for the left and right loudspeakers.
Each speaker cable must be connected securely and in phase, i.e., from the Red Plus (+) terminal on the amplifier to the corresponding Red Plus (+) terminal on the loudspeaker, and from the Black Minus (-) terminal on the amplifier to the corresponding Black Minus (-) terminal on the speaker.
An incorrect, out-of-phase connection will result in a diffuse stereo image and weak bass, as frequencies from one speaker will cancel out frequencies form the other, and vice-versa.
In a stereo system, the amplifier's right channel output connects to the right loudspeaker and the amplifier's left channel output connects to the left speaker.
