Very newb question but if there are 2 sets of each red and black on your speakers do you use the upper ones or lower ones to connect to your receiver via speaker wire? And why are there 2 sets?

the two sets of posts are for biwiring/biamping - generally considered a waste of time unless you have the means to do it correctly with active cross overs and separate amps and such.

As long as the jumpers are in place it doesn't matter which set you use to connect to your receiver/amp. I use the bottom ones out of habit.

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!
LOL!

Yes, and I highlighted the VERY important portion in your reply.

I suspect it never would have occurred to the OP to remove them!

Ah, but what if they were purchased second-hand and the original owner had removed the jumpers? We don't know enough from the post to say one way or another, but it's probably safest to keep that caveat in place.

Awesome thanks guys, and I'm assuming jumpers on the metal clips that run from one set of connections to the other? I'm a computer guy just now getting into high end home audio .
