Question about Audio & Video Receivers
I bought Nexxtech banana connectors from Circuit City. I am not able to figure out how to connect the wires to them. It seems like the plastic cover should come out and allow me to unscrew the screw I see inside but the plastic cover is stuck on tight.How do I connect the wires to them? They are NOT the crimping style. They are supposed to be the toolless kind.

Yes, the speakerconns can have bananas, you have to remove the little plasticcovers in the middle of the conns...also you can use thick wire with this connectors...

You can hook them up either way, the banana jacks are good for hooking two speakers to one terminal (ie one through the botton, one banana) but the electrical connection is the same either way. Sometimes the banana capable jacks are on speakers A and speakers B, and the surround don't accept banana plugs, your stuck with how your reciever is wired.

Had a set of bose AM-10 that I had to take back cuz Sony said that their receivers needed a powered sub woofer. got AM-15's and hooked them up-AMAZING SOUND.

For temporary just for testing it ok.. but using banana clips permanently it not a good idear because due to excesive sound vibration it will create static for sure to avoid that you may have to souldering those wired in place to avoid that static and causing eventual damage inside your receiver... any conection as to be well connected special went it time to connect a large amps., beside a turn table, you may look for a good ground.... I suggest to put a solid ground wire also betwen your tv set and your receiver
for eventual hi static discharge., also make sure use a power bar for more protection ...good luck

Just test it with connectinng banana pin. Make sure to tight the screw of the banana socket; otherwise, there will be loose contact to the connection. The preamp: section is working fine, as you can hear the output by headphone. Just connect the set to AC mains, and listen whehter you can hear a 'click' sound of output relay catch from the power amplifier section. This sond can be heard at about 3 or 4 seconds after power ON the device. If there is no click sound is heard from power amp: section, power amplifier need service.
If all are OK, and still there is no sound from the power amp, check the speakers first, and then check the ribbon cable interconnection. Replace the cable if it is found faulty.
If you want anymore assistance from ,me, feel free to get me by FixYa. OK.
