Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I bought an old Sony record player with an amplifier built-in from ebay, and I can't figure out how to connect speakers or what type of speaker cables I need. There are no clips for speaker wire, and the jacks that are on the back for speaker cables are too small for a 1/4'' male end. I have searched google for days, and am my wit's end. What kind of cable do I need?

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.
Just curious, priorto the arrival of the RCD, how did you play or listen to the turntable?

Passive crossovers are easy to install. By definition, the only type of connections they require are to your speaker line. They typically get installed between the end of the speaker wire and the speaker. Connection should be fairly simple, just like hooking up the speaker itself.
Now F-Mod crossovers modify the audio signal before it is amplified. They accept the patch cord from your receiver on one end, and then plug directly into the preamp inputs on your amplifier. They are also easy to install, and don't require additional wiring.
An active crossover requires a little more work. You have
to connect 12-volt power, ground, and a turn-on lead. The active
crossover gets installed between your receiver and your amplifier. A lot of
active crossovers have both speaker-level and preamp inputs, so they
can usually work with either type of connection. The outputs will be
preamp connections to your amplifier. Hope that helps.
