Frequently asked questions

 

Where will my speakers sound best?

As a guide your loudspeakers should be placed 2 - 3 metres apart and a similar distance from the listening position. Try to position them at least 20cm from a rear wall and 30cm from a side wall. Angle the speakers in a little towards the listener to minimise off-axis reflections. Spendor speakers are however designed to operate in a wide variety of listening environments, so you should not concern yourself unduly over position. There is no problem using the loudspeakers in whatever position you wish.

Which cables should I use to connect my speakers ?

Loudspeaker cables can have an important effect on sound quality. Choose good quality low resistance cables. Ask your dealer for advice on cables to suit your system and budget.

 

How do I connect my Spendor speakers ?

Set your amplifier to minimum and switch off the power. Connect the amplifier output marked 'right' to the speaker on the right, and the amplifier output marked 'left' to the speaker on the left. The positive (+ or red) terminal on the loudspeaker should be connected to the positive (+ or red) terminal on the amplifier. The negative (- or black) terminal on the loudspeaker should be connected to the negative (- or black) terminal on the amplifier.

Can Spendor speakers be bi-wired ?

This facility is only available on some of our more traditional products. Optimum sound quality will normally be obtained by using a single set of high quality cables rather than two sets of lower quality cables.
