    Ok I'm new to this forum and would like some help hooking up my surround sound speakers to my receiver. Ok I have a brand new set of Genesis G-6.1 surround sound speakers (I got them for $20 brand new in the box so I couldnt pass these up.). I will be upgrading the speakers soon but might as well get some use out of these. I;m having some trouble understanding how to hook up the Subwoofer. The subwoofer has 8 wire plugs in the back for left front, right front, etc. But how do I go about hooking those up? Do I run all the speaker wire from all the speakers to the sub and then connect the sub to the receiver? Or do I just connect all the speakers to the receiver like usual? I've never hooked up a sub woofer like this one before. Please help me out, and if there is any pics of videos u may have please let me know, thanks in advance!

    Best I can tell this are "White Van Speakers". Prolly not worth hooking up...

    Did you get a manual with them?

    They definitely are White Van Speakers, and are not worth hooking up. At least you didn't pay much for them. Below is a list of known White Van Speaker brands. Notice that Genesis are in the list..................

    Sheesh, folks, He paid $20 and just wants to hook them up....


    OK

    If there are two sets of LEFT connections on the sub then one set is labelled "IN" or "RECEIVER" or something. The other set will be labelled "OUT" or "SPEAKER" or something. What you do is hook the IN connections to the stereo or receiver or whatever, then wire from the OUTs to the speakers. Basically.

    Hope that helps... send us a picture if you can, and maybe we'll be able to sort it out better!
