    ConnectionsLoudspeakersCheck the impedance of your speakers. You can use types with animpedance of between 4 and 8 Ohms.The red coloured speaker terminals are positive (+) and the black speakerterminals are negative (-). Make sure correct polarity is maintained ateach speaker connector or the sound can become weak and phaseywith little bass.Note: All connections are made using standard loudspeaker cable.The diagram below shows the basic connection of your amplifier to a CDplayer and a pair of loudspeakers.Using bare wire connectionsPrepare the speaker cords for connection by stripping off approximately10mm (3/8) or less of the outer insulation. More than 10mm couldcause a short circuit. Twist the wires tightly together so there are no looseends. Unscrew the speaker terminal, insert the speaker cable, tightenthe terminal and secure the cable.RightspeakerLeftspeakerBlackBlackRedBlackTopaz AM1/AM5CD player6RedRedBlackRed
