Hi Micheal, Can you tell me anything about the speakers you're using (Brand, Model, How many), and where you're running into problems?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

If only using 2 speakers, you'd connect them to the "Front A" Speaker binding posts. To do this you strip 1/2" of insulation off each of the wire ends and then insert the positive under the red plastic screw on cap and tighten it down. Then the negative goes under the black.

If using two pairs of stereo speakers- that you want to play all music through, then connect one pair to the "Front A" and the other pair to the "Front B".

If using a 5 channel Home Theater surround system, then the front left goes to front left, the center to center, and front right to front right terminals, the same applies to the surrounds.

If this doesn't cover what you're asking, then please simply reply back with where you're running into problems and we can continue.
