    Default What leads do I need?

    I've just purchased these speakers...

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2611337828...84.m1497.l2649

    I'm looking to buy an S4 next week. What leads will I need to link these up to my S4? Will I need a 4 to 2 phono lead?

    Cheers

    Looks like you'll need 2x stereo RCA leads.

    The speakers have RCA outputs too. You could maybe use 1 mono RCA lead per speaker.

    Sorry, could you explain how I would set it up then? 1 RCA lead to the S4 and speaker, then one to the other speaker?

    You can either connect a pair of RCAs from your S4 to Speaker 1, then another pair of RCAs from Speaker 1 to Speaker 2.

    Or, connect a single mono RCA from each output of your S4 to each speaker.

    Brilliant, thanks.

    I suspect option one will achieve the better sound.

    Single RCA from L (White) out of S4 to left speaker, single RCA from R (Red) out of S4 to right speaker.

    Not so simple. I can't figure out if that's a Stereo (2) RCA input or WTF?

    I even read the manual. It says "for Mixer, CD player, etc."

    He might need to split to dual RCA's. So he ends up with four.

    You would only send stereo to one speaker if you only had one speaker, as he has 2 send left and right to corresponding speaker.

    Sometimes sending stereo to one speaker causes frequencies to phase each other out aswell
