Had a (very basic) question about the pair of Polk Monitor 60 speakers that I just bought. I see on the back of the speakers four holes: 2 black and 2 red. Is there a difference between the red/black at the top and the red/black at the bottom? I looked at the manual, but I don't really understand how it works. I'll be using these two speakers with my Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver. Its a 7.1 receiver, but I will only be using these two speakers. When I go to hook up the speakers, what do I do exactly? Do I run one cable to the speaker, and run another one back to the receiver? If I wanted to bi-amp, do I run two to the speaker and two back? Does it matter if the front outputs from the receiver go on the top or the bottom of the speaker holes? So since I have two speakers, is that a total of 8 wires I need? I think I also read somewhere that the Onkyo has a bi-amp setting, so does that mean I don't need 4 speaker wires per speaker, just two?
LASTLY! i saw in the polk manual that the speaker wires look bare: I thread them through the hole and tighten the screw. Are banana plugs something I can use instead of doing this (and what exactly are banana plugs?). Where's a good place to buy all this stuff (I buy hdmi wires etc from monoprice... are they good for speaker wires too?).
If anyone has the onkyo tx-sr606 (new), do you know if it comes with the wires already?
Thanks guys, I know these questions are really newbish and basic, but I honestly have no idea what I'm doing. I bought these speakers, along with the receiver, during the black friday sales, and would love to figure how to make it all work properly.
