I have this system and while this isn't a real problem for most, it is for me. The speaker cables on the main speakers are not long enough to suit me. I'd like to buy extension cables to make them longer but I don't know if it is possible since the cable end in jacks and I've been unable to find any information elsewhere. Is it possible to buy extension cables for these speakers? If so, any idea where?

An F61 error occurs on a Panasonic home theater system when the speaker cable wire connections are wrong. This situation is likely to happen if you just purchased your unit or moved the system and try to reconnect the speakers again. Polarity is key in a successful setup. The positive and negative ends of the cable wires must match the input of the main unit. Retrace your speaker wire connections to clear error F61.
Attach the speaker labels to the speaker wires for easier identification, if they're not already labeled. At minimum, labels for front left (L), front right (R) and center speakers should be included in the packaging contents that came with your system.
Verify that the white ends of each speaker cable are connected to the corresponding "+" positive inputs for each speaker.
Verify that the blue ends of each speaker cable are connected to the corresponding "-" negative inputs for each speaker.
Push the plastic ends of the speaker wires on each speaker to verify that each is locked into place.
Connect the remaining end of the "Front (L)" speaker wire to the white terminal/connector on the main unit.
Connect the remaining end of the "Front (R)" speaker wire to the red terminal/connector on the main unit.
Connect the remaining end of the "Center" speaker wire to the green terminal/connector on the main unit.
Connect the remaining end of the "Subwoofer" wire to the purple terminal/connector on the main unit.
Connect the remaining ends of the "Surround (R)" and "Surround (L)" speakers to the wireless system.
The Behringer PMP2000 uses Speakon jacks on the speaker cables. The outputs are located on the back panel. Which ones you use is determined by how you configure the mixer. The Main inputs are located on the right side of the face of the mixer.
Please read a tip I just posted regarding a hazard of the Speakon to 1/4 inch cables when used with these PMP mixers.
If you are using your main speakers as stereo, then you will need either powered monitor speakers OR an additional seperate amp for them. The mon outputs on the mixer are LINE LEVEL and are not driven by a power amp. Use TRS (balanced) interconnect cables from these to POWERED monitor speakers.
You can parallel your two mains providing the parallel impedance is 4 ohms or greater (two 8 ohms in parallel at most). The the monitor speakers can be paralleled and the switch set to Main/Mon so that one side of the power amp drives the mains and the other drives the monitors.
To prevent damage to the mixer, make sure all speaker leads are secure before powering the system. Run the speaker leads through the handles of the speakers to prevent inadvertent unplugging due to personell tripping over cables.
AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.
