Connect four speakers to your Amp or Connect:Amp
Before you start
- Make sure the impedance rating of your speakers is 8 ohms. Any other impedance rating may cause the Amp or Connect:Amp to fault.
- We do not recommend wiring your speakers in series as it will result in poor sound quality. Refer to the image below to see an example of parallel wiring.
- Using the provided banana plugs, unscrew the bottom of the banana plug until the speaker wire hole is exposed.
- Insert the stripped end of the speaker wire into the hole, and then tighten the bottom of the banana plug so that it holds the speaker wire firmly.
- Plug the banana plug into the correct speaker terminal on the back of the Amp by ensuring that the colors of the circles match on the banana plug and Amp (red and white).
- When fitting two wires into each of the speaker terminals in a four-speaker configuration, if the speaker wire fits completely through the terminal hole, it does not matter whether you go through the top of the bottom of the post.
- Use your thumb or finger to firmly push the spring-loaded speaker connector post inward to reveal the connection hole.
- Insert the stripped end of the speaker wire into the hole, and then release. The stripped portion should be caught firmly in the connector post.
- You will be fitting two wires into each of the speaker terminals in a four-speaker configuration. If the speaker wire fits completely through the terminal hole, it does not matter whether you go through the top of the bottom of the post.
Parallel wiring four speakers to an Amp or Connect:Amp
Note: The Amp and Connect:Amp are only able to play one source of music at a time. If you're using four speakers and they are in different rooms, then all rooms will play the same music.
