Audio inputs and outputs

Connect speakers

We recommend using a speaker wire gauge between 12 and 16. Runs of over 300ft are not recommended. Refer to our article on choosing a speaker wire gauge for more details.


  1. Use your thumb or finger to firmly push the spring-loaded speaker connector post inward to reveal the connection hole.
  2. Insert the stripped end of the speaker wire into the hole, then release. Repeat for the other speaker connections.


ZP100 works with traditional 8 ohm bookshelf speakers as well as pairs of 6 or 4 ohm speakers.
