You would like to connect your loudspeaker, but you don't know where to start. Here are a few tips. Before you start connecting your speakers to your receiver, don't forget to strip your speaker cables. The best way to do this is with a stripper.


What equipment do you actually need to connect your speakers?


You will need the following materials for the installation:

Speaker cable
Stripper
Speakers
Subwoofer
Subwoofer cable

Connecting the speaker cord
A speaker cable consists of 2 loose wires joined together. One wire is coloured black and the other is coloured red. The inputs of your speaker and the outputs of your receiver both have the colours black and red. First, insert the red wire of the speaker cable into the red input of your speaker. Then connect the red wire at the other end to the red output of your receiver. Do the same with the black wires and connections. It is also possible that instead of black and red, a + and a - icon are used, follow the same logic here: connect + to + and - to -.

Time to test
Now you can start testing your speakers. First, plug the receiver into a wall outlet and turn it on. Then, using the remote control of your receiver, turn on the speaker and check whether you can hear it. If sound does not come out right away, there is no harm in double-checking that all the cables are connected properly. The quality of the sound from your speakers depends, among other things, on the cables used.
