To extend speaker wire you need to splice it. The proper way to do this is with bu tt connectors. You will also need a crimper, but a cheap set from the hardware store will do the job just fine. Make sure all components are off and unplugged when doing this. It is also a good idea to splice 1 conductor at a time so that you don't accidently cross the wires and end up shorting your system. Once your wires are spliced through, it is also a good idea to re-insulate your connections with electrical tape.

What wires do I need to connect my denon avr-1803 to the speakers


All you need is some speaker wire long enough to get to each of the speakers your running. Use larger gauge if your running big speakers hard and/or over longer distances. Otherwise a medium gauge (16) will do fine.
You'll also need all the cables required to connect external components.

Original speaker wires lost - can they be replaced with commercial speaker wire, and if so will longer wire lengths work just as well?


I checked my Sharp system and it uses ordinary wire for the speakers. The difference in length won't matter. $20 for replacement wire? They must be kidding.

When I push ON button I see in display " protect" mode...


It could be a short in your speaker wire or the crossover in your speakers.

1) Turn off your unit and disconnect your speaker wires at the amp, if the protect is no longer displayed when the unit is turned back on, check the connections on the speakers. If you do not visually see a short on the speaker wire connection, turn off the unit and disconnect the wires at the speaker and isolate them so they do not touch then connect the speaker wires at the amp. Turn on the amp and see if the protect is on. If it is on, the wire has a short somewhere in the line. If the protect is off then suspect the speaker has a short in the voice coil or crossover.

2) If the protect is still on after you disconnect the speaker wires at the amp, it could be the power IC in the amp is shorted and needs to be replaced.

Rear Speaker delay


It will not be the length of the wires, as the signal travels at close to the speed of light!

If the connections to the speakers are bare wires the cause is probably that you have wired the speakers with opposing polarity. Check the wiring and ensure that positive (red) is wired to positive on the speakers.

The speaker cable should be marked in some way to indicate which core is which. It doesn't matter which core you use provided that you wire red to red and black to black, or whatever other colours your output and input have.
