Connecting an amplifier and speakers

The diagram below illustrates a basic connection of a stereo amplifier and a pair of speakers to the miniDSP Flex Eight (DL). Since the default settings of the Flex Eight route the input channels to output channels 1 and 2 with no crossovers active, you can make this connection for initial testing and listening.

Of course, more complex connections are possible using the additional outputs. In that case, the internal processing will need to be set up using the miniDSP Device Console. Refer to the Signal Flow and DSP Reference sections for details.

Warning

Ensure all equipment is powered off when making audio connections.

Warning

Before playing audio for the first time, turn the volume down using the front panel encoder. Increase it gradually after audio playback starts.
