What kind of speakers are these?

I have a pair of speakers I got. They're made in Japan and have a single input on the back. How can I use them? All my "normal" speakers have two inputs (black and red). I believe they were part of an old Benytone reciever.

Looks like a simple RCA connection. You'd need a "Y" splitter cable....... 2 females to 1 male.

Actually, all you need are these to connect your speaker wire to them....

Dunno what brand they are but if they're passive (a quick look inside should confirm it) you should be able to use a male-RCA-to-bare-wire cable to connect them to the binding posts on your receiver.

You could strip an RCA cable as suggested, just be sure to get the wires hooked up to the proper polarities (+/-).


I also found these which are a bit cheaper than the above suggestion:

Thanks for the info guys! Never knew that!
In the meanwhile I found out where they came from, they were a part of an "Benytone 8 Track & Cassette Tape Fm Am Stereo Receiver M7030".
I like how they look, very vintage, maybe the sound is not bad
Will try as soon as possible.
