Question about Akai PDP4294 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
I have the Akai PDP4298 plasma TV and have never used the two speakers that came with the TV (I have always used surround sound speakers), but want to use them now. The back of the speakers have normal clip in speaker wire connectors, but to connect them to the TV it has a different set up and I need an adapter of some sort. It says 8 and the greek letter Omega. The connector needs to be something that is double female for the right speaker and then a double female for the right speaker. I have been looking around and asking for help at Best Buy and Radio Shack but no one can help me. I have tried different sizes of banana plugs and they don't work either. Can you help me?
Ok, after A LOT of internet research I could not find any solution. So I decided to do a "chop suey" connection.
Went to Radio Shack and bought ...
Insulated Grip 2-1/4"Alligator Clips w/screw terminals 10 (five red & five black)
(A smaller alligator clip can be used if you have a soldering iron to connect the wires.)
30-Ft. 18-Gauge Clear 2-Conductor Speaker Wire
It cost about $15 for everything. Be sure to have electrical tape as well.
Stripped speaker wires to fit through each alligator clip and twisted it around the screw terminals of clip. Tapped screw terminal to cover wiring. Do this for 2 black and 2 red clips.
To install l laid the TV on its back and insterted each alligator clip to firmly fit on each terminal. Because the clips are large it will be a tight next to each other. Be sure to test one line and speaker first before completed the second line and speaker.

Just strip the wires and push the tab back, then push the wire in the hole that opens up. Release the tab. One red and one black for the left and then the same for the right.
