You can use a piece of speaker wire to replace the missing bar. those speakers are designed to be used with the bars in place for normal use. they can be removed if you are bi-amp/bi-wireing them.

SOURCE: Lost instructions

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....

Leave the brass plates in place and make sure they are TIGHT. They're for separating the internal drivers so one could power them with separate amplifier sources - bi-amping.

Connect the plus and minus speaker cables traditionally, one to either pole.

Removing the plates would silence whichever speaker is NOT amplifier-driven.

Leave them in, do some reading on Bi-Wiring (BUY Wiring), chuckle to yourself and enjoy the sound. Connect one positive to a positive and one negative to a negative. With the jumpers in place there is no electrical difference.

I've just been given a pair of working Mission 780 speakers. There are 4 connecters on each speaker and 2 brass plates linking the left inputs to each other and the same with the right ones. What's the...


Do not remove the brass plates! These work as a bridge between the connections, making them a universal speaker. You only need one input. The other input should say "Bridge", which is an output to the other speaker, allowing you to run these speakers as monitors or subs. The bridge option runs both speakers on the same channel, making it a mono signal, so if they are used as monitors, everyone hears the same thing. If they are used as subs, equal power goes to each, reducing the chance of a blown speaker.


Hope that helps!

Need a wiring diagram for 696 seriess switch


You don't need a wiring diagram.
The screws tell the story.

On one side of device has 2 screws.
On other side has 2 screws.
Green screw is for bare ground wire.

1) One side will have dark screws and the other side will have brass screws. The dark screws will be connected together with a brass plate. The brass screws will be separate.
-or-
2) One side will have brass screws and the other side will have silver screws. The brass screws will be connected together with a brass plate. The silver screws will be separate.

#1 Hot from breaker connects to dark screw. Wires to Load (light,fan) connect to brass screws.
-or-
#2 Hot from breaker connects to brass screw. Wires to Load (light, fan) connect to silver screws.

I have a Leviton 5634 two rocker switch that I'm using to replace an old double switch that controls two lights. There are 1 black, 1 red, and 1 white wire in the light switch box. The white wire is...


Review old switches:
Two old switches > each has 2 wires
Old switch 1 > Red and White
Old switch 2 > Black and White
The same white wire connects to both switches, so effectively they count as 1 wire
This means you have 3 wires ... 1 White, 1 Red, 1 Black
Each switch controls a separate load (light, fan, motor)

New Leviton double-rocker switch:
-Leviton has 2 Brass-colored screws on one side, and these screws are connected together by a brass plate >> your Hot wire will connect to brass screw
-Leviton has 2 Silver-colored screws on other side, and neither of these screws are connected in any way >> the wires going to each load will connect on a different screw on this side of switch.

Hot wire: Each box in your house has exactly 1 hot wire that is connected back to breaker box. This is true for all boxes (excluding boxes that have a 3-way & 4-way switches).
We need to identify Hot wire.

-By code the Hot wire is black for identification purposes ... but your box sounds like maybe the Hot wire is White.
-If your Hot wire is white, that is NOT an immediate safety issue ... it will not cause a fire or malfunction ... it is a code violation ... because code requires things be uniform so next electrician knows what previous guy did. So some day, electrician working outside grabs wrong color wire, and wow. I say this so you know.

Moving on.

Identify Hot wire:
-Pull 3 wires up so they can be tested
-Turn on power
-Use ordinary tester, or old lamp with plug cut off and wires stripped back
-Tape tester lead to sticks so hands are away from voltage
-Power is on. Don't stand in water or touch metal pipes, and you're fine.
-You have 3 wires in box + ground wire
-Test all 3 wires to bare ground wire >> when tester lights up, that is Hot wire ... testing is complete

Connect wires to Leviton double-rocker:
-Power is OFF.
-You have 3 wires - 1 White, 1 Black, 1 Red >> one is Hot wire, the other two wires go to load
-Hot wire connects to Brass-colored screws on new Leviton.
-Brass colored screws are connected together by a brass plate so the Hot does not need to connect to both brass screws.
-The other two wires connect to Silver screws on other side of new Leviton switch
-One wire goes to each silver screw
-Connect bare ground wire to green screw.
-Push wires back into box. Use eraser end of pencil if needed.
-Make sure ground wire is back and away from screws on switch
-That's it.

I have a Tork 1101. I am confused by wiring diagram. Please help.


http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

1) Tork 1101 has 120Volt clock motor, making this 120Volt timer.

2) 120Volt circuit has 1 black hot wire and 1 white neutral wire and 1 bare ground wire. Ground wires connect to green screw and to each other.

3) You have two cables, each cable has black, white and ground.
One cable arrives from breaker box.
One cable goes to Load (light, fan, motor, pump etc)

4) Cable arriving from breaker box:
a) Hot black connects to terminal L.
There should be a brass connector plate that connects terminals L and 1. If this plate is removed, then add a jumper wire from terminal L to terminal 1.
b) white connects to terminal X

5) Cable going to Load
a) Load black connects to terminal 2
b) Load white connects to terminal X along with other white wire.

Can the Boston BA 7900 be converter to use with TV or DVD Player?


Yes, but so far I can only get the 2 front speakers and subwoofer to work.

You need a wire that converts a headphone-style jack (like the green one with the Boston speakers) into a red and white AV connection (typical CD/DVD, etc. connection). I've had this connector for a long time and I'm guessing it's under $15. You connect the green Boston speaker connection to the converter end (mine connects to the back end of the headphone-jack (which has a hole for the connection) and the red/white AV connectors to your TV.

I'd been trying to solve the problem too for a long time. Only problem is that I can't get all 5 speakers to work because I think the red/white connector doesn't work with all 5 speakers. I have yet to figure out how to make all 5 work, but the system gives great sound anyway. You will have something like a 5.1 system with your computer speakers, the Boston speakers and subwoofers.

One more issue is that if you connect it directly to the TV, you have to manually turn the Boston speakers on and off.

I Do Not Know How To Connect Boston Micromedia To My Computer


The Boston Micromedia speaker set comes with two speakers (right and left),a subwoofer, and a complete set of cables to connect everything up.

1.) Position the speakers. The two small speakers typically are spaced equal distance apart on a desk/table top to the benefit of the listener. The sub-woofer typically rests under the surface, on the floor for example.

.) Connect the cable sets to the back of the two small speakers along with the speaker feet.
Note: the small speaker with the volume control knob will have three cables coming from it. This will be the "right" speaker. The other speaker will have a single cable and will be the "left" speaker.

2.) The cable ends will be color coded to match the jackson the sub-woofer. Match up the color coded cables to the respective colors on the subwoofer as follows:

(a) White cable end (left speaker) to white jack on sub-woofer.
(b) Red cable end (right speaker) to red jack
(c) Purple cable end (input) to the purple jack
(d) Green cable end (computer out) to the computer's microphone output jack.

Note: if any of the cables are too short to reach their jacks for whatever reason, an extender cable with a female and male end can be purchased relatively inexpensively to make up the difference in distance.

3.) Power up the system (plug in power cables to the sub-woofer and wall), play some music, and adjust the sub-woofer sound (control knob) to suit listening pleasure.

A nice little set of speakers, I had mine for some years now and continue to enjoy them. Good luck!

Boston BA7800 PC speakers


I would not suggest it. PC speakers generally have their own amplifier built into the system and will not handle the power from a home system well.
