CONNECTING SPEAKERS
Connect the SPEAKERS terminals to your speakers with wire
of the proper gauge, cut to be as short as possible. If the
connections are faulty, no sound will be heard from the
speakers. Make sure that the polarity of the speaker wires is
correct, that is, + and – markings are observed. If these wires
are reversed, the sound will be unnatural and will lack bass.
Do not let the bare speaker wires touch each other and do
not let them touch the metal parts of this unit as this could
damage this unit and/or speakers.
● One or two speaker systems can be connected to this unit.
If you connect only one speaker system, connect it to either
the SPEAKERS A or B terminals.
● Use speakers with the specified impedance shown on the
rear of this unit.
How to Connect:
Red: positive (+)
Black: negative (–)

ANTENNA CONNECTIONS
●
●
Each antenna should be connected to the designated terminals correctly, referring to the following figure.
Both AM and FM indoor antennas are included with this unit. In general, these antennas will probably provide sufficient signal
strength. Nevertheless, a properly installed outdoor antenna will give clearer reception than an indoor one. If you experience
poor reception quality, an outdoor antenna may result in improvement.
