    According to the info I got from mission;

    Most EX based AV amplifiers support connection of a pair of rear channel speakers. if only a single connection is provided for the rear channel, the 'ds' speakers should be wired in series.

    Does this mean put both + and both - in the + and - connecters?

    Hi

    You will be wiring them in parallel not series this halves the impedence, and yes both +Vs together and both -Vs together, if you dont do this your speakers will be out of phase.

    To wire in series you would need to take the +Ve wire from one lead and join it to the -Ve wire of the other lead. You will be left with one -Ve wire and 1 +Ve wire to fit in the amp.
