I have just purchased a pair of microlab speakers. I have managed to get one working but the other is not. I suspect this is due to the fact that they connect via interconnect speaker cables which I have never seen before.

The above image is the picture of the back of my speakers. The interconnect speaker cable is in the image below.

It is the one with the plastic coating to the end. In the instructions manual it says connect it to the red and black screw bits. I am not sure if I am supposed to insert it from the back of the screws or from above/under. From the back, It does not hold at all and from above/under, the second speaker does not work.

Any help would be appreciated.

That's standard speaker wire and speaker posts. You need to strip the wire so that it looks like the one on the bottom. Unscrew the speaker terminals, put the wire in and tighten back down.

Definitely make sure you strip the insulator back to expose the wire. That may be why you're not getting any sound.
