    Hi, I have just purchased a AS SP101 Amp to replace my old Sony amp. But i have come across a big problem. On the back of my each of my speakers there are four input jacks?

    LF+ O O HF+
    LF- O O HF-

    Where as on my amp there is just;

    + O O -

    So at the moment I can only have either my high frequency or low frequency play. Is there a solution this? Thanks well in advance for any help anybody can offer

    Your speakers have LF and HF binding posts because they can be bi-wired or bi-amped. However, they should come with jumper plates in case you don't want to bi-wire or bi-amp. The jumper plate is a small metal plate usually gold plated that connects each HF post to the corresponding LF post (HF+ to LF+ and HF- to LF-). If the jumper plates are present then you don't have to worry - just connect the speaker wire to either HF or LF post and you're all set to go. If the jumper plate has been removed then you can get these:
