How to connect speakers to an Audio/Video (A/V) stereo receiver.

    1. Turn off the A/V receiver.
    2. Connect the speaker wires to the speaker terminals on the rear of the A/V stereo receiver.


      • For spring clip terminals, press down on the red (positive) or black (negative) clips and insert the speaker wire into the slot. Then, release the clips.


      • For binding post terminals, loosen the red (positive) or black (negative) binding posts by turning them counter-clockwise. Insert the speaker wire into the slots under the binding posts and then turn the binding posts clockwise to tighten.


    3. Connect the other end of the speaker wires to the corresponding speakers.


    • For further information regarding any of the steps above, consult the instruction manual for the A/V stereo receiver. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
    • A powered subwoofer will not output any sound when using the test-tone function on the A/V stereo receiver.
