That's a very generic question, but generally you should find on the back of your speakers a pair of connectors either marked (+) and (-) or colored in Red and Black (or both designations). Similarly in the back of your receiver you'll find two sets of these, one for the Right channel and the other for Left. All you need to do is to hook up your Left speaker to the Left Channel in the receiver with proper polarity (red to red and black to black, or (+) to (+) and (-) to (-)) and do the same for Left.
Now you can use speciallized speaker cable (available from Radio Shack etc.) or simple flexible stranded copper electrical cable from a Hardware store. The gauge (size) of cable depends on your receiver's / speaker's maximum output power (watts) and the estimated length of cable run depending on the positions of your equipment. Generally : a 100W set with a run of 20 meters (60ft) at 8 ohms will need no more than 12AWG (4 sq.mm.) cable. But you can supply your exact info and we'll do the calc. for you.

I have a s108sp subwoofer with a right and left input assuming this is for a cable going to one input on my Sony reciever. The subwoofer also has inputs for speakers. Do I plug the speaker wires into...


Hey there houleo!
If your subwoofer has a stereo input and stereo outputs, then it's a good idea to send the signal from your receiver to the sub, then out to the other speakers you have hooked up. Some subwoofers will take the low frequencies out of the signal to the left and right speakers, so that the sub handles it alone. This often gives a nice crisp sound.

What kind of receiver do I need for the Theater Research TR-2830 Digital Series and the TR 8200. Like what kind of wattage am I looking at here. I know these are the "white van speakers" but I am...


any reciever/amplifer will work, keep the wattage below 200 watts rms. standard speaker wire is fine, you don't need to spend a lot of money on "special" gold wires, that's just a scam. plain old copper wire works great and you can get that at BestBuy or even Radio Shack

look at this picture...

The vertical jumpers are removable if one wishes to BI-amp them. If not, leave them in place and connect your speaker wire conventionally - plus to plus, minus to minus.

The picture here...

shows what to do if the jumpers are missing. Just fashion a short jumper for each to connect the top woth the bottom on each side.


Google bi amplification speakers if you're bi-curious. ;-)

How do you hook up the speakers to a receiver. It has duel inputs. Is it two separate channels, or what?


Hello,if the speaker has 2 red and 2 black connectors then its designed to have an option for bi-amping and or bi-wiring.If you dont intend to do either than simply connect the reds together with a speaker wire and do the same with the blacks(if there is already a metal post connecting them than dont do anything but connect your speaker to the reciever as usual.

Can I hook these directly to my TV


No. The jacks on the back of your tv are line level. That means no power. To get the power, you need a reciever. Red and white RCA wires will go from your tv's out and the other end to an input on your reciever, and your speaker will be wired to the speaker out jacks on your reciever.

How do i hook my bose 901 equalizer into deno


The Bose EQ connects to the tape out and tape in on the amplifier or reciever. If you were using these for a tape deck, you will then have to connect the tape deck to the tape in and out on the Bose EQ.
