Connecting speakers to an Amp or Connect:Amp | SonosThere is more to adding speakers to your home entertainment center than just buying them, connecting them to the receiver and listening. You need to be aware of certain speaker specifications, the way you are wiring your speakers and whether or not you need to bi-amp or bi-wire your speakers for optimum performance. You would think that connecting speaker wires from your receiver to your speaker would be simple enough. There are also positive and negative terminals on the back of your receiver. You want to make sure that the positive cable connection from the receiver is running to the positive terminal on the speaker. You want to do the same with the negative connections from receiver to speaker.

Bookshelf speakers are meant to rest on a shelf, table or other elevated surface — anywhere but the floor. Like anything else, doing your homework before making a decision will definitely pay off. For instance, some are geared specifically for movie buffs , while others are tailored to take your music listening experience to the next level. Just because they're named "bookshelf speakers" does not mean they have to go on a bookshelf. Think outside the box and get creative where you place them. Before getting into the specifics of bookshelf speakers, it is important to understand the difference between bookshelf speakers and powered monitors. After all, they have a lot of similarities.

However, as it turns out, those wired speakers can actually be used in the wireless world. All speakers , whether wired or wireless, need three things to work: an audio signal, power, and amplification. Amplifiers, wires, and cables supply those requirements for traditionally wired speakers. Wireless speakers plug into power, have built-in amplifiers, and instead of that old copper wire or cable, the audio signals are transmitted wirelessly to them via IR infrared light , RF radio frequency , Wi-Fi , or Bluetooth. Traditionally wired speakers don't have a built-in amplifier and can't receive audio signals wirelessly, but you can make them "wireless" with the use of add-on devices. These devices serve as a bridge between the wired speakers and wireless audio signals.

I started working for the Stereo Barn in late I knew the red wires went in the red holes, black wires in the black holes, and that was about it! Well, everyone starts from somewhere and after assembling and disassembling numerous demo stereo systems I learned pretty quickly the ins and outs of a stereo system and how everything works together to make your music sound the best it possibly can. What I realized is a lot of people who come to our store looking for a stereo system may not have the slightest clue how to set one up. Understandably, they have not had many years of experience connecting stereo equipment on an almost daily basis to learn how to do it themselves. My goal is to walk you through how to hook up a simple stereo system so you can enjoy listening to your favorite music, whether you listen to CDs, MP3s, radio, records, or any combination.
