    Hi Guys,

    I have recently purchased the Pioneer AX5AiS receiver and realised that it’s “Rear Surround” speaker terminals only has terminals for 1 set of left and right speaker cables. My “Rear Surround” speakers have TWO sets of speaker terminals on EACH speaker (one for bass and one for treble). How do I connect this up? Can both sets of speaker cables go into the same terminal on my receiver?

    Thanks.

    Yes. But I wouldn't really bother. The rear surrounds aren't going to be worked too hard and will sound just fine with the jumpers in place IMO. Saves a lot of extra speaker wire too. ;)

    I would replace the sets of jumpers you have with some speaker cable.

    The jumpers usually aren't up to much and a simple thing such as replacing the jumpers with some cable will help with the sound quality.
