How to wire simple speaker setup, and what type of connection to use

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I'm quite inexperienced with home audio and I'm moving up from computer speakers (Klipsch Promedia 2.1). I kinda went ahead and bought most of my setup already since I got a pretty good deal.


What I have/have ordered:


I hope I didn't buy anything wrong. The Lepai is probably going to take a while to arrive, and the subwoofer should come in a few days. I received the bookshelf speakers today and noticed that they have a "5 way connector" (I googled this).

How would I connect everything together? I have a feeling banana plugs are the way to go, but I don't know anything about them and I'm not sure how I would go about connecting together.

Thanks in advance

Guide for the 5-way plug. It's relatively simple to work with.

As for the Sub, I'm not sure how you'll connect that to a 2-channel amp.
