This is very easy. The Red and Black(Sometimes white) are for your Audio Usually Left and Right respectively. Yellow is for Video let me know if that helps. there are some instances where if you plan to hook it up to a Television, specially the older ones, you'll find that you just have two inputs for only two cables so what do you do then. Well... Just hook up the yellow for the Video Par and Either the black or Red leaving one unused. Let me know how that works out for you alright. And feel free to ask more questions where we will be more than happy to assist you.

How do you connect the back cables so the sound will come out right


There are four posts - two black and two red. They should be connected together, as shown in the picture. If you are missing the brass straps, simply use wire to reconnect the posts, black-black and red-red.

Then it's a simple matter of connecting the red (+) amplifier output to one of the red terminals, and the black (-) amplifier terminal to the black terminal on the KEF.

The KEF terminals can be seperated if you wish to "biamp" or "biwire" these speakers. Each black/red pair is dedicated to either the bass or the treble. For higher fidelity, some listeners prefer to run seperate wires from a single amplifier channel to each individual speaker input.clmrt5000_5.jpg

Do not know how to connect my kappa 60.5cs to my pioneer cd player do they have to go through an external amp?what do i do with the power plugs on the oppisite side why are there 2 per speaker


You need to run RCA cables from the CD player to the CD or AUX input on your amp / receiver unit. If you have a standalone amp, you need some way to control the volume. Basically, if you have a volume control on the front of your amp, you're OK. If not, you should also have a preamplifier that the CD player feeds first.

From the amplifier, then, a single pair of speaker outputs feeds a single pair of inputs on your speakers. The reason for two jack sets on the speakers is for "bi-wiring" or "bi-amping", not necessary for basic stereo reproduction.

So -

CD red/white RCA out -> preamp/receiver red/white CD/AUX input. Amp speaker output (red + / black -) to one red/black input pair on the speakers. An input on the speaker is side by side...

Keep the red to red, black to black when connecting the speakers, or you will wind up with poor sound and weak bass.

My Tannoy Reveal 5A Powered Monitors are producing a low hum. This is the case when in on or in standby mode, and is the case whether plugged in to an audio cable or not. Could you please assist with some...


Hi,low hum from monitor speakers are usually when there is not shield connected to the cables your using for connections. Also it might be from the power light,if there is no earth or ground connected before connecting the power source in that room.

So you will need to check the cabling properly and check how the (sleeve, tip and ring) are connected and also check the power outlet,if the (red,black and yellow or white) are connected properly.

after checking those if they are OK,that means the fault will be from the speaker itself.\

Just do a proper troubleshooting.

Thanks for using fixya.....

I have a stereo with 8 track player, but I need speakers. The serial number is 22801907116. Where can I find some type of speaker to fit this?


Serial numbers aren't likely to bring much help, you must have a model number somewhere and once you have that, look for a downloadable manual if it is still to be found. With 8-tracks becoming rare, there may not be a manual available for it.

I have 2 KEF Q35 speakers, i have them wired up as normal on the outside ports, but there are another set of wiring ports labelled HF (one positive one negative) what are these for? please help!!


These are quite common, and are just separate connection for each speaker in the enclosure. Just bridge the connections red to red and black to black with cable (use something like 5amp house wiring cable) and then connect your cable from your amplifier to one of the "ports" See http://www.brilliancehifi.co.uk/how-to-bi-wire-speakers.htm As you can see you could "biwire" if you wanted go further and improve the sound quality

Sound Problems?!


If you have just basic cable with no box, your tv must have audio out. If you do have a box then you can come out of it. Digital coax or optical would be better for the dvd if it has it.

Instalation instructions required


Uhmmm. . .okay. . .I would use nothing less than 16AWG speaker cable. Do not run the speaker cable parallel in close proximity to any AC wiring. Speaker cable rated to run through walls with usually be color coded red and black. Connected the red to the red on the speaker and red on your home theatre receiver. Do the same for the black. If speaker cable insulation is clear, look closely for subtle markings or writing on the insulation. The writing will only be on one of the two wires. Designate that as the POS or PLUS or + or RED. Connected it to the red on the speaker and the red on the back of your home theatre receiver. The other is by default the black and connect it to like colors. Repeat for all 5, or 7 speakers in your theatre. Your subwoofer probably has a seperate amplifier, so it gets it's power from it's own AC power plug. . .so plug it in. The sound coming from the Home Theatre receiver will be low-power and will carry on an RCA cable. Look for the subwoofer output on the home theatre and connect it to the input on the subwoofer. There may be a right and a left input on the woofer. . .it doesn't matter which you plug it into. . .either one will do.

Hooking up Coby Csp-94 Speaker to HDTV "no directions"


The green, black and beige cable is non-standard and proprietary meaning that Coby has defined their purpose which hopefully is described in your user guide. It would be worth a few dollars to buy the properly color-coded cables to uncomplicate your setup. Buy cables (or cable sets) that have the same color coding as your TV jacks along with the cable suggested below.
There are several ways to connect to an HDTV system and these are normally standard as previously described.
The red and white are for right and left channels and it isn't uncommon to see a three cnductor cable with one not connected since one of the methods of connection is to supply audio via two cables, video (composite) via a 3rd which is plugged into a corresponding jack, normally colored yellow. Audio cables aren't really required to carry the mix of much higher frequencies of composite video.
If you have the following connectors, try this:
- S-Video (this does not contain any audio information and requires an S-Video cable) - Right (red) and left (white) audio paths.    The S-Video connection provides a better signal that gives you a noticeably sharper picture. This setup is selected from the TV's input source menu.

What does red versus black equal?


from cd player to amp:

connect red from cd to red on the receiver's CD input( and white to white) using RCA cables:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RCA_connector
Red is usually right channel and white left channel.

From amp to speaker, use speaker cable and and make sure that you connect red to red and black to black. Notice the stripe on the speaker wire to help you do this. you could think red as 'positive' and black as 'negative', though they are not in the theoretical sense, as they carry ac signals.
