You can use banana plugs to connect speakers to the speaker post. Connect the wire to the banana plug then insert the banana plug in the speaker post.

If you serch in google with the name speaker banana plug then you will get picture of different types.

You can buy this banana plugs in any nearby electronic spare part shop. They all stock this item. Normally comes in pair ( red, black)

SOURCE: No sound out of speakers (Marantz SR5200 receiver)

sounds like you might need to open it up and check the speaker wires that you plug your speakers up to it might be lose or something else like that cause it happened to me before and that was it.

SOURCE: Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers

Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

As long as you change out the connectors, you can run it anywhere you wish. I suggest a rear channel.

I have a Marantz turtntable, a Marantz CD player, an Eltax tape player and a Marantz amplifier with two Cambridge speakers, how do I wire them up please.

If you have a pure amplifier, there may only be one set of inputs, and one or two pairs of speaker outputs. The inputs are probably RCA plugs. Connect the CD or tape player to these. The speaker outputs are typically heavier binding posts or wire clamps. Each speaker should have one pair of wires. One for the 'Red' post, another for the 'Black' post.

If you have a 'Receiver' you will have several inputs to use and switches in front to select them. The CD and tape can be plugged into either tape, CD, or Aux inputs. (Not 'Phono') The speakers hookup is the same as for the amplifier.

You may also want to google the make-model of your amp to find a manual....

Marantz NR1402 AV receiver Going to standby Mode

There could be a short in one (or more) of the speaker connections. Try disconnecting all speakers and turning on the receiver. If it still switches to standby, there may be an internal problem.

How to hook autotek693T speakers in cparice classic 1992???

yeah, you are going to have to cut off that factory speaker connection, but leave a few inches of wire on the end so you can re-attatch that connector later, should you sell the car, re-install the factory speakers and keep your after market speakers for another car. one of the wires has a stripe on them, (never mind the color) connect the stripe factory wires to the stripe speaker wires with 'wire-nuts', or twist the bared wire and tape them with electrical tape, the stripe wire to the positive speaker post. the other wire will of course go to the negative speaker post. once you have both speakers wired up, play some music with good bass, and move your speaker balance from one side to the other, if your speakers are connected properly you will hear more bass with both speakers than with the balance all the way left, or all the way right.

We have a marantz PM-44SE amplifier and the speakers are really quiet?

make sure all your speaker connections and your phono lead connections are good and connected properly.also if you have the correct source(input for cd player etc.)pressed in,this could also be the correct speaker setting(a or b speakers)if your amplifier has a+b settings.check your speakers at the back to see if there are any switches,or if they are bi wirable(if they are bi wireable you will need two sets of wires running to both speakers from both speakers (a) and the (b) terminals,as if this was the case and you are only using 1 set of cables then only the treble may be working without any bass or the other way could also look at your phono leadsby giving them a light twist to see if there are bad connections,if not if you can try and ask a friend or neighbour to try the speakers on their sound system and then you will know if its your amp or speakers that have the problem.i suspect it is your amp,if you have tried these things and got nowhere then you may have blown your output transisters and would be better off getting a new amplifier as it would cost too much to repair.only you know when the problem started and if it was by playing the amplifier too loud for too long then the volume dropped right down the it is probably the transisters that have been blown.hope this helps

I have a Marantz 2275 receiver hooked to some JBL speakers. I noticed one of the speakers crackling. I swithched the speaker wires around and now the other speaker crackles so I'm guessing it is

Doesn't sound like it's a speaker - more likely a fried chip or transistor causing harmonic distortion.
It's usually more cost effective to replace modern audio components than to fix them.

What is the proper way of connecting my two speakers to my PIONEER M-90 Amplifier?

As with any amplifier...


Connecting the speakers

Each speaker connection on the receiver comprises a positive (+) and negative (-) terminal. Make sure to

match these up with the terminals on the speakers themselves.

Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is twisted together and inserted fully into the speaker terminal.

If any of the bare speaker wire touches the back panel it may cause the power to cut off as a safety measure.

How do you hook up the speakers to a receiver. It has duel inputs. Is it two separate channels, or what?

Hello,if the speaker has 2 red and 2 black connectors then its designed to have an option for bi-amping and or bi-wiring.If you dont intend to do either than simply connect the reds together with a speaker wire and do the same with the blacks(if there is already a metal post connecting them than dont do anything but connect your speaker to the reciever as usual.

I have a Marantz SR7200. I have been using for a long time with 6ch stereo with no problem. Suddenly, it starts to make a lot of noise on front speakers in any mode. It just stops this noise when source...

Hello Sergio.

Sounds like a bare wire (speaker wire) most probably is touching your SR's metal body.

Remove all speaker cables, re-terminate them clean (cut, trim, and twist again) and then re-plug them in to the binding posts.

When you go puredirect, it overcoms some filtering circuits of the board and this should be the reason why it stops.

Try that & advise.

Integrate computer (huge MP3 library) into home theater sound (AIWA's fantastic speakers)

Sounds like the wiring for the speakers has been modified to bypass the crossover. Best to open up the speakers and see if there is a crossover. Both speakers should be wired to a crossover and the crossover wired to the speaker out on the amp. Crossovers can be bought from Jaycar in Aust or Madisound in US
