How To Wire Speakers
Why would you want to know how to wire speakers? Wiring speakers is something people do whenever they want to have a better sound system. Wiring new speakers to control your stereos sound and make it play louder is quite easy to undertake if the correct cable are plugged in, in the correct nut. It's not always recommended to try to wire the speakers yourself because you risk mixing things up for good. To have a truly great sound system make sure you have somebody qualified hook you up.
- Begin with choosing the appropriate speaker and the right amount of wire for your entire system. Then, ensure that the power is on and working, and continue by matching the speaker onto the main sound system. It is considered that the longer the wires are the better for the actual resistance of your speakers.
- Make sure that when you purchase the wires you opt for pin connectors. They're safer, and the risk of provoking a short circuit are highly reduced. The actual role of your speakers is to connect the electrical input into mechanical sounds, featured by the output of your system. Therefore, what you get in the end is a sound reproduction, which is louder and clearer due to your amplifier.
- If you must use plain wire, use a pair of scissors (or better yet, wire cutters) to cut away a half an inch of wire insulation.
One of the wires will be marked down its side with a white stripe. This is to keep track of which side is positive or negative. Keep this polarity in mind when attaching the wire. Positive and negative hookups will be market with red and black enclosures. Black always means negative, while red always means positive.
- Attach the negative cable first, as this ground your connection.
- When you're done connecting the wire to your speaker, repeat this process with your stereo or receiver.
Once your speakers are installed, they will receive audio signals and you’ll be able to have that loud noise you’ve been waiting. Overall, it’s not too difficult to wire speakers. All you have to do is plug in the right cables to get the right sounds.
