How best to wire 10 ceiling speakers to amplifier?

Hi. I have ten Clarity S-522 (Valcom) ceiling speakers which I am trying to connect to an amplifier for office paging purposes. I'm not sure how to connect them all up. I was planning on having them all connected in one loop. Can someone give me help? I'm electronically challanged!

Many thanks,
Bob

    I guess you just wait long enough and you can find the answer yourself. Wow, no electronics experts on this site.... That's too bad.

    Don't waste your time on this site with electronics problems. Nobody here can offer advice on my simple request. I eventually found a way to wire my speakers on my own.

    Here are some factors you need to know before you continue 1) What kind of amplifier are you using? 2) Do you have a paging control unit? 3) How do you want to hook them up?

Hi,i hear alot about bi wireing could someone explain what it actually is used for and what's it meant to do could I'm thinking bout trying it on my speakers?


It's a big job, but the results are great. Bi amp-ing is where the tweeters and mid range speakers are separated and connected to separate amplifiers. You'll need to have the correct gear before messing inside your speakers. You'll need to have another amplifier. Not knowing what amp you have now, getting a stereo signal into the second amp may be a problem since you'll need a line level signal into the second amp. An external crossover is best. Technically, you could use the ones in the speakers, since you'll be removing them anyway. Now for the speaker mods: On the panel where the posts for the speaker wires are you'll need to install another set of binding posts. We're assuming you have separate subs. Open the speakers and remove the cross over. The wires from the original posts should now connect to the mid range speaker. Add wires from the second set of posts and wire it to the tweeters. Now connect the output of the amp to the removed cross over and wire the mid range out on the cross over to the posts that connect to the mid range speaker. Do the same for the tweeters.If you have three way speakers, you'll have to run a 3rd set of wires from the crossover to the woofers in the cabinet using another set of binding posts. Controlling the volume on the second amp will be difficult since you'll have to adjust it manually. Remote control volume level will be lost on the second amp.

How To Bi-Amp And Bi-Wire Speakers!


What is the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping?
Bi-wiring is using the same power source (amplifier) but separately connecting that power source to a woofer and a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

Bi-amping is using two separate power sources (amplifiers) and connecting one amplifier to a woofer and the other amplifier to a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

How do I bi-wire?
Your speaker must have two separate positive and negative connections (one set for the woofer and one set for the midrange/tweeter). Connect one wire between the positive terminal on the amplifier/receiver the positive terminal on the speaker. Connect the other wire from the negative terminal on the amplifier/receiver to the corresponding negative terminal on the speaker. Remove the jumper straps connecting the two sets of speaker inputs. Repeat this process for the second set of terminals on the speaker, connecting them to the same positive and negative terminals on the receiver/amplifier. Repeat the steps for each speaker you wish to Bi-Wire, connecting them to the appropriate terminals on your receiver/amplifier.

How do I bi-amp?
Bi-amping is similar to bi-wiring, but involves separate amplifiers: one for the woofer and one for the midrange/tweeter. Passive bi-amping involves a direct hookup between each amplifier and the speaker terminals. True bi-amping involves hooking the preamp to an electronic crossover that replaces the passive crossover network in the speaker. The active crossover then connects to multiple power amplifiers.

Monster clarity does not work wired


Mine wouldn't either. Now I have paired it with the Bluetooth and it installed something (drivers?), and now it works. So, now how do I know if it is always connecting Bluetooth or wired? I connected the wire and it is still working, so now how do know if I really need the wire or not???

Splice Bose speaker to connect to receiver


Each speaker has two 4 Ohm drivers. Each speaker has a connector with 4 pins. From left to right they are + - - +. Say 1 2 3 4 . If you want a 8 Ohm speaker connect 2 and 4 together. Now 1 goes to your amplifier (+) and 3 to your amplifier (-). In yor case join black with blue. Now red goes to the amplifier red and green to the amplifier black.

How it can be connected to a stereo amp


hi,
if ur amplifier have a pre out, then u can connect that to ur L/R input of ur sub woofer.

if not the only way is, connect ur amplifiers speaker output to sub woofers speaker input and then connect ur speaker to sub woofer speaker output terminal. remember don't inter change positive and negative wires.

if ur amplifier have speaker A,B connection then it is very easy. connect the speaker A to ur left and right speaker. then connect speaker B to ur sub woofer's left and right speaker input. be sure to make that speaker A and B switch is in on position. the power on both and check it. ( use good quality speaker cable to connect the sub woofer)

your sub woofer is designed to work , both at low level and high level input.
ok

Please Help ....i have Bose Acoustimass 10, 5.1 system connected


Usually the LFE out is only a line out and is not amplified in any way, so first of all is your subwoofer self amplified or not? Cause if not, the LFE output won't be of much use to you. So if it's not self amplified you need an new amplifier to put between the receiver and the subwoofer. Any amp that supports RCA line-in input will do. Even a car stereo amplifier will work provided you can get a 12volt power supply to run it in the house. If the subwoofer is self amplified though, then all you need is to make an adapter cause none are readily available in stores to go from a RCA connector to 2 wires. You can buy a virgin RCA connector that you can wire yourself at The Source, Circuit City, or any electronics store you have locally, or if you have an old RCA to RCA wire you don't need anymore, you can just cut it in half, strip the 2 wires and you got you adapter right there.

Home speakers


1st of all i would take a multimeter and test each wire to make sure you have a connection after this i would use any amplifier connecting 2 speakers at a time locating each one and then label the cables then from there buy a suited amplifier for your needs and away you go

Connecting speakers to receiver


These speakers are designed for use in an overhead paging or similar sitiuation. They require -26v DC power in addition to an audio signal. You can connect your own amplifier if you disconnect and bypass the one on the speaker. These are really marginal speakers for music, so it might be wiser to get someone to trade them for some that sound better.

Cabling car speakers as home speakers (is it really that stupid?)


If you wire the speakers as a pair in parallel; (For two 4ohms car speakers) 1/R=1/4 + 1/4 1/R=2/4=1/2 R=2 ohms (the resistance value you'll get) (don't even think of trying it!) in serial; R=4+4 R=8 ohms (this mostly fits to home amplifiers, however, they provide 6ohms as well) I recommend that you use reasonable 8ohms speakers for the home theater amplifier you have. Despite the fact that the impedance value fits to 8ohms when you wire two car speakers as a pair in serial, this type of connection will tire your amp as well as the capacitors of the car speakers. Furthermore, you can get unwanted peak sounds from car speakers.
