I cant remember how to hook up the speakers to the system

Speakers use a cable that consist of 2 insulated wires. The two wires are identified by one or more ways: 1) one wire may be golden colored and the other white or silver colored, 2) the insulation on one of the wires may have a raised ridge, or 3) the insulation on one wire may have some marking along the surface where the other will not

The terminals on speakers and terminals for the speakers on the amplifier will both have a (-) and (+) symbol for each cable (one for each wire). I like to assign the (+) terminal to the golden colored wire or the insulation with the rib or marking on it, and the (-) terminal to the white or silver colored wire or on the smooth or unmarked insulation. It does not matter which wire you assign to which terminal - as long as the (+) and (-) terminals of the speaker connects to the (+) and (-) terminals on the speakers of the amplifier (you should see to it that they do not get crossed so that the (+) of the speaker is connected to (-) terminal for the speakers on the amplifier).

Connect each speaker location to the corresponding speaker terminal on the amplifier (the front right speaker to connect to the front right speaker terminals on the amplifier - continue until all speakers are connected). Failure to connect correctly will make fading front to back and balance left and right work unexpectedly.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)

Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!

Don't know which is the positive and negitive wires

To be honest, it really doesn't matter - the speaker is just a resistor electrically, which is not a polarized component. You can hook either wire up to either side and you will get the same sound. In any pair of speaker wires, do you have one with a stripe and one without? If so, the striped wire is the negative wire. If you have a light colored wire and a dark colored wire, usually the darker one is ground (ie, yellow wire and purple wire in a pair for example - the purple would be the negative and the yellow would be the positive). But honestly it doesn't really matter which one goes to which terminal - electrically they have no real difference. If you hook them up "backwards" from what the factory intends, when the speaker plays, it'll pulse inward rather than outward from its mounting frame. It'll move the same distance with the same velocity however, so it'll create the same sound.
