Ok, I'm pretty new to home theaters and I'm trying to set up my first one. Here's the problem. My sub woofer can only accept two bare copper speaker wires in the back. My receiver, however, will only receive the sub woofer through a male connector. What can I do to solve this delemma? I have tried buying a two male ended speaker connection and clipping one end off to expose the speaker wires. Unfortunately, no sound comes out of the sub woofer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
