How can i connect speekers with just copper wire to my mixer with red and white jacks


You didn't list the model number of the mixer, but from your description, your mixer does not have power amplifier outputs for speakers. The red and white RCA jacks are out puts that would plug into a power amp input, and the speakers would connect to the power amp, as in a PA system.

I have an "ilife" Which


You would be tempting fate.

There is usually a reason a given connector doesn't accept bare wires. RCA conenctors not only amke better physical and electrical connections but they make sure ground is to ground and signal is to signal and neither touches anything else.

There are no outputs provided for either signals or speakers.

I need leads to connect my NAD C320 BEE amplifier to PSB T45 speakers. Not sure which plugs are needed to fit into the speakers.


From the C320 manual, Page 5...

11. SPEAKERS

Speaker terminals for speakers with an impedance of 4 ohms or more. Connect the right speaker to the terminals market 'R +' and 'R-' ensuring that the 'R+' is connected to the '+' terminal on your

loudspeaker and the 'R-' is connected to the loudspeaker's '-' terminal. Connect the terminals marked 'L+' and 'L-' to the left speaker in the same way.


Always use heavy duty (16 gauge; 1.5mm, or thicker) stranded wire to connect loudspeakers to your NAD C320. The high-current binding post terminals can be used as a screw terminal for cables
terminating in spade or pin sockets or for cables with bare wire ends.

BARE WIRES AND PIN CONNECTORS

Bare wires and pin sockets should be inserted into the hole in the shaft of the terminal. Unscrew the speaker terminal's plastic bushing until the hole in the screw shaft is revealed. Insert the pin

or bare cable end into the hole and secure the cable by tightening down the terminal's bushing.

Ensure bare wire from the speaker cables does not touch the back panel or another socket. Ensure that there is only 1/2" (1cm) of bare cable or pin and no loose strands of speakers wire.

If you're pondering those jumpers on the back of the speakers, my advice is to leave them in place and ignore them. Connect the speaker cables to either plus or minus.

Bi-wiring does nothing but make you use twice as much speaker wire for the same electrical effect. Bi-amping assumes there are deficiencies in your electronics that must be worked around, again by using more speaker wire and separate amps.

Were can i get one speaker wire on one end an plug on other end


Not sure what you're saying her. Do you mean two bare wires on one end and an RCA audio plug on the other? I hope you're not contemplating the connection of an amplifier output to something other than a speaker. There's a good reason those special connectors are NOT compatible with bare wire. Consider what it is you're trying to accomplish, name the products and ask a specific question for advice on HOW to do it.

Receiver cannot recognize subwoofer


As I implied earlier, take a clue from the physical style of connectors for both parts of the subwoofer function in the old and new receivers:

RCA connections are for Line Level signal between components only.

The input (bare wire) at the speaker is for AMPLIFIED signal.

You can't just modify one to fit the other and expect magic to happen. Be glad you didn't do it the other way around and modify an amplified (speaker level) outout into a Line Level input. You likely would have smoked that component.

Your subwoofer is a passive speaker, that is, like any other speaker it needs an amplifier. Many subs are self-powered (amp built-in) and they would mate well with the RCA sub output of the receiver.

Get yourself an Active (self-amplified) Subwoofer and run UN-MODIFIED RCA cables to it, according to its instructions, from the Sub Out of the receiver. Or get an amplifier between your receiver and the sub you have.

Bare wire sub to single RCA jack receiver


Yes you can modify RCA cables to make bare wire tails.
If the unit has a sub o/p then you just connect up your sub bass unit to whatever the amp needs.

An RCA cable is 2 wire which is all you would normally need for sub bass speaker level signal.
It may be a good idea to eventually upgrade the wire size if you want really good sub bass as lower frequencies draw more current and so require more copper.

Please let me know if this any help, thanks for using FixYa.
