Getting connected


Check the impedance of your speakers. You can use speakers with an impedance of 8 Ohms.

The red coloured speaker terminals are positive (+) and the black speaker terminals are negative (-). Make sure correct polarity is maintained at each speaker connector or the sound can become weak and phased with little bass.

Using bare wire connections.

Prepare the speaker cords for connection by stripping off approximately 10mm (3/8”) or less of the outer insulation. More than 10mm could cause a short circuit. Twist the wires tightly together so there are no loose ends. Unscrew the speaker terminal, insert the speaker cable, tighten the terminal and secure the cable.

Note: All connections are made using standard loudspeaker cable.


Using banana plugs.

We recommend using Banana plugs with our units to establish a secure connection and ensure there are no loose strands of wire that may cause unwanted noise or interference.

Once you have stripped the outer insulation of the cable and twisted the wires as indicated below, securely connect these to your banana plugs, remove the dust cap from the end of the speaker terminal and push the plug in as far as possible without applying excessive force.


Note: When using a banana plug, make sure the speaker terminals are completely tightened before inserting the plug. 

Basic connection.

The diagram below shows the basic connection of the AXA25 to a CD player and a pair of loudspeakers.

Any ‘line level’ source equipment can be connected to the audio inputs on the amplifier (A1 to A4).
