Multiple speakers going into one spring clip terminal pair

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I want to feed 2 pairs of speakers from the output of an Audio receiver. the output is a pair of spring clip terminals. I would like to put a single pair of wires into the receiver and then have some kind of a splitter where the two wires from the receiver are the input and the four wires to the speakers are the output. I wouldnt have to bend over to access the back of the receiver. It would make life easier.

Problem is that I have not found any accessory like that on Google.. Surely someone else has faced this issue before and stores sell this..

if i understand this correctly, you want to hook up 2 speakers to the left terminal and 2 speakers to the right?

Wirenuts?

Twist the amp ends of each cable pair together.

Be aware that 2 eight ohm speakers wired this way (in parallel) will present a 4 ohm load, which is lower than many receivers are specified to handle and could lead the receiver to overheat and/or the receiver going into protect mode if driven hard. FWIW, two 4 ohm speakers, or one 8 and one 4, present an even more difficult load to the receiver.
