Hi All
This is a quick step by step guide for anybody needing help installing speakers, please read the disclaimer before using.


PLEASE NOTE: this information is not an industry accepted method; these are my own personal fixes that i have determined through many years of handling Hi-Fi items. With the exception of any readers who have bought from my ebay shop Priceattackstorerun by the247enigma, bear in mind these hints may invalidate any warranties you may hold, but if they should I would recommend attaining a refund from your seller and shop elsewhere!

First of all make sure your cables are long enough, then a bit more (always easier to tuck a little excess behind the amp) and bind the cable ends so that there are no loose strands.

Fix the cables to the speakers, again make sure there are no loose wires

Now fix one wire at a time to the amplifier, make sure your amp is turned off before connecting, once one wire is connected check to see if you have sound, if you do not have sound switch off the amp, unplug the speaker cables and try the other speaker wire.

Note: Ensure you have the polarity’s correct, join the positive to positive and the negative to negative, if you do not your speakers or amp may fail over time.

If sound returns check the cable on the other speaker, if it does not and this is a fresh setup i would recommend looking at my guide on how to install amplifiers, you may find the solution lies there.

If it is not, and your old speakers still work fine when these do not, contact the seller.

Sometimes speakers have an option called ‘Bi’Wirable’ if this is so simply place a piece of wire between the 2 negative inputs and another piece across the 2 positive inputs, if you don’t you will find your speakers giving out either only bass or only treble.

Well I think that’s all the troubleshooting, i do not recommend opening speaker cabinets to anyone, as in almost all cases THERE ARE NO USER SERVICABLE PARTS INSIDE! If the problem cannot be resolved above I would send it back to your seller, or if this is not possible have it repaired professionally or you may send it to ourselves for safe and proper disposal.
