Hi,

I was in Harvey Norman this morning looking for a deal on a Wharfedale Diamond 10cs whilst I there i saw they had their 10.6s banana plugged with the plugs going into the top 2 connections.
I thought they go into the bottom 2 from what I remember from the manual. Am I doing it wrong???

Thanks

Did they have the bridging plates between the two sets of inputs? If so, can't see how it could matter.

Yeah I think they did, just looked weird to me.
Also didn't get the 10cs as it was around $420 which seemed a bit steep as you can get a pair of 10.1s for that price.

I find bridging plates very problematic when using the holes in binding posts or forks under the post, and usually end up with one on the top and one on the bottom so I can angle the wires nicer.

 

Shouldnt matter either way.

I had my binding plates come loose once.  Thought my receiver was toast....

The problem I have is that there is a gap between the hole in the post, and the top of the plate when it is under the wire, so you have to tighten the post enough to deform the wire down where it exits the hole in the post. Cant do that if it is a solid pin.

 

Solution was to move the plate to be between the wingnut thing and the wire thru the hole, so the nut is pushing the plate onto the wire, but that can involve some real contortion to get the wire in the hole under the place.

 

Got these instead of the stupid metal bridges for one stereo. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Pair-Kimber-kable-Jump-cable-Bradge-cable-for-speakers-with-spade-connectors/1047217371.html
