Please send me a diagram of how the wiring is to be set up on the back of the speakers


The red connector on the speaker should be connected to the Pos.(+) connection on the Receiver/Amp. The Black to the Neg. (-) connection. ( for the proper speaker) Front Left, Front Right,etc. All, or most paired wire has either a black stripe,different shape on one,or different colour wire(silver/copper) So if you hook up the Blk striped or silver to the Neg.(black terminal) on the speaker, do so at the other end (receiver ) If both speakers aren't hooked up the same, they will work, but there won't be as much Bass because the speakers will be out of phase.(when one speaker cone is moving out,the other will be moving inward.

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.

Can I use a JS650 with a new Harman Kardon AVR1600 Home Theater receiver? The HR is 7.1 however the JS650 has only speaker wire connectors. Thank you.


Yes. You run the front channel speaker wiring to IT then the the front speakers attach beyond it from thye OUTS. Set the level for the sub to match the other speakers using the knob on the back.

Your amps don't 'drive' the sub, they just pass through it to the fronts while the sub samples the programming.

Pictures here...

Need new system input cable for acoustimass 10


I've made a diagram of my serial cable. You can easily make one with some speaker wire and a 15-pin d-type female serial connector. Solder the wires as shown in the diagram.

I have had a set of Polk Audio SDA1 speakers that I had attached to an old but great Pioneer SPEC-1 pre-amp and SPEC-2 power amp. The old speakers had one connection for the right speaker positive and...


bi-wiring requires the removal of the copper jumpers between the hi and low speaker terminals. you can use two wire pairs twisted together at amp out connections and the four separate ends at each speaker, but the quality of sound will not be as good as buying quality bi-wire cables. But a pair of quality single set of wires at each speaker would be fine, but put jumpers back on and attach to the top terminals, they are designed that way. bi-wiring does allow the crossover to put out a little better sound. Hooking up four sets of wires to the a and b speaker terminals sounds bad. i have had alot of trouble with my rti10's and learned the hard way that it is best to pay more for wires with quality terminations.

I don't know how to attach my speakers to the red


If you have bare ended wires , you simply unscrew the red and black plugs at the amp they should have a hole in the end of the plug and on the side also just place the red wire into the side hole of the red plug and finger tighten the red screw the same on the black plug

Wiring into walls


Okay, here's the verdict. No such din connector for the Bose AM15's exist. I thought I would take another look to see if anything had changed since I had looked last. Once again, all is the same and it makes using standard wiring a pain. However, it is possible to do what you want to do, which I assume is a nice clean install. I have rigged many of these systems, and, here's what I do.

First, the biggest pain is the 25' LFE cable. Shortening it is a pain because the wires are thin and dificult to splice. Lengthening it isn't a great idea either because you want to keep the cables as short as possible. However, a lesser of 2 evils exist and that is to keep this cable whole. Before you begin, peel the LFE cable from the buch untill it is separated from the bundle. Next, peel the speaker wire for each speaker so the pos and neg for each speaker is together, but, separated from the bundle. Then you'll place the sub where you intend it to go, plug in the 13 pin din (I even looked at vga options...nada) and stretch the cable to the wall and cut one speaker wire at a time (+ and -) being CAREFULL to mark which wire is positive and which is negative after the cut. DO NOT cut the LFE cable, and make sure you give yourself an extra foot or so before you cut the wires.

Once the cuts are complete and you have labeled pos and neg for each wire, you may strip the wire and plug into your regular speaker wire wall plate (banana or clips). On the reverse side of the plate, attatch the pos and neg to the plates making sure everything is consistant. Then, run the wires to your receiver (or vise versa). Regular speaker wires typically distingush pos from neg through some sort of marking on the wire housing.

The other cable you will run is the sub (LFE cable). If you want to just drill a hole in the wall and stuff the cable in and run it to the receiver, that's one way, but if you want to keep it clean, use a single RCA connection wall plate. Then, to minimize loss of LFE sound, run a TV coaxial cable from the sub to the receiver and terminate both ends with RCA terminators.

Once the wires are run to the receiver, double check that all the speakers are hooked into the sub and the wiring is complete. Take a AA battery and mark the location of the speaker that corresponds to the wire. In other words, with the speaker wire, hold one end to one side of the battery and the other end tap lightly to the other side of the battery. You will hear a crackle or pop locating the speaker the wire goes to. Once this is identified, label the wire and plug into the appropriate output making sure the pos and neg are consistant.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so, I drew a diagram and will attach it to this forum asap. Good luck and have a blast!

Connect a laptop to a bose acoustimass sistem


If your laptop has speaker outputs that you can attach the provided bare wire cables to, maybe. Otherwise, NO. It requires speaker level inputs.

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.
