How to connect speaker wires to Model 301?

The Model 301 features two pairs of binding posts per chassis. Both sets of binding posts are active and connected in parallel with no difference in signal quality. As the connections are the same, there is no specific set of binding posts that should be used. It is however suggested to utilize the set of binding post on each chassis closest to the speaker being driven by that chassis.

  • On the left channel M301 chassis, Connect a speaker wire to the left (A) pair of binding posts, and the connectors at the other end of the same wire to the terminals of the left loudspeaker.
  • Unscrew the knob that secures the output connectors "A" on Model 301, until you can pull its securing block out far enough to allow access to the binding posts.
  • Connect the positive (usually red) loudspeaker cable spade terminal to the positive (+) binding post and the negative spade terminal to the negative (-) binding post.
  • Secure the connection by tightening the knob firmly with one hand, while holding both wire terminals in place with the other hand.
  • On the right channel M301 chassis, Connect a speaker wire to the right (B) pair of binding posts, and the connectors at the other end of the same wire to the terminals of the right loudspeaker.
  • Unscrew the knob that secures the output connectors "B" on Model 301, until you can pull its securing block out far enough to allow access to the binding posts.
  • Connect the positive (usually red) loudspeaker cable spade terminal to the positive (+) binding post and the negative spade terminal to the negative (-) binding post.
  • Secure the connection by tightening the knob firmly with one hand, while holding both wire terminals in place with the other hand.

WARNING: When connecting or disconnecting speaker wires, the Model 301 amplifier must be placed in Standby mode (by pressing the front power switch, so that the blue POWER indicator is turned off.  Failure to follow this safety instruction may result in a short circuit, or in other serious damage to the amplifier, to the speakers, or to other components in the system. Any such damage is not covered by the JRDG factory warranty, and will be repaired at the owner's expense.
