    Default Very dumb question: which terminal do I use for my Rti8

    I felt embarrassed asking this in the speaker/highly technical forum, but I'm connecting my RTi8 and there are two sets of terminals. I'm not bi-amping so which one do I use? Also, the terminals don't appear to be labeled +/-. Thanks.

    As long as the binding post plates are used, it doesn't matter if you connect the speaker cables to the top or bottom posts. Red is positive, black is negative.

    Thanks. I know the red/black is probably standard but I just wanted to be sure. :)

    Just so you know for future reference, the bottom posts are for your woofer(s), upper posts for midrange/tweeters. As F1 said, make sure the brass shorting strap is attached if you're not bi-wiring/bi-amping; that way the signal is being applied to all drivers.

    There's an old saying. "The only stupid or dumb question is the one that isn't asked."
