Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
I have recently upgraded my home stereo amp. The previous home stereo and amp came with 2 speakers, each having 4 wires for 4 speaker output connections on the amp for each speaker. My new amp has 2 speaker output connections for each speaker, + and - . Can I hook up the 4 wire speakers to the 2 wire speaker connections on my new amp and if so, how?
YES ! This is usually ok, the speaker cabinet should contain a high pass filter or crossover on the tweeter to decouple it from the low frequency signals. My Linn Index speakers are wired like this.
