I have a really simple problem. I don't know how to hook up my audio speaker to my stereo. I just purchased a Fisher Slim-1500. The wire behind each speaker is a long gray wire that ends in two thin threads. The instruction manual says simply where to attach the threads but not how. Looking at the back of the stereo it isn't obvious to me how.
Is it the system in the picture here? I think you need to push down on the red or black lever, then insert the wire into the slot that is created. The small wires should have a solid and a stripped cover. Make sure you hook the same ones to red and the same ones to black.
The speaker wire goes from the red on the component to the red on the speaker-and black to black--if there is no color on your speakers red goes to + and black to -.you can insert the cable into the component till it stops,or just short if you wish(making sure the wire is stripped of its insulation so the wire contacts).
nice how you concealed everything but if you wanted to get picky theres a imagin issue there with the center channel bein off the center of the tv lol jus had to say it but beside real neat very sharp
Ed - Imaging? His speakers are no more than four feet apart. It does look nice though. Let me suggest you dress the cables so the AC cords cross the interconnects at right angles to each other.
In the fifth picture you'll the Carver True Sub jr. It is a 9 inch cube and fit snuggly under the end table. I had to remove the rubber feet to slide it in there and then replace them. The rear speakers are BOSE cubes. They are hidden on the woodwork behind the sofa. I bought the two box ones so I could rotate the sound to the proper direction. The mounting brackets are cheap from Circuit City.
Mike- Sorry I missed your post. I liked the Panasonic DVD recorder so much I bought a second one for the SONY LCD in my other entertaunment room. It lives with a Comcast HD box, a SONY KLV30XBR900 and the Panasonic DMR-E40
For the LCD, I'm running the SONY DVI cable as the main feed from the SONY Wega box to the monitor. On the plasma, I am running a Marantz 7400 which has component feeds to the SONY Plasma and handles all of the audio and video switching. Both pictures seem equally crisp in High Def. The XBR LCD box seems to do a little better(clearer and sharper) job resizing analog signals to the screen dimensions. But that may be a factor of a 30" final form factor versus 42".
