My brother gave me his Polk Audio Speakers that he bought new as well a Pioneer Receiver. I am trying to wire the whole thing up and make it sound as good as possible. I have moved twice since acquiring them and lost the metal jumpers for the terminals in the back. I don't know how many jumpers there originally were, but I now only have 1. Without the jumpers I decided to wire them up not knowing the first thing about "bi-wiring" and that has led me here.
My Main question is: How do I identify the model of Polk Audio Speaker that they are? I have looked all over the black exterior and have taken the black covers off the front that simply say "Polk Audio". They each have 2 mid-range looking speakers and 1 tweeter on the top. My last resort was to maybe unscrew them and look inside. Any other advice?
The model # i thought would help me to obtain the Jumpers online somewhere. Or I thought I could learn more about bi-wiring. So far my success with the bi-wiring is minimal. I have gotten some good sound, but if I go too far up with the volume, the receiver displays "OVERLOAD" and shuts down. At first I had the highs wired to the Front B connectors in the back, but after reading some about bi-wiring I put both the highs and lows in the Front A connectors.
