Very comprehensive document which is a must-have for any Satellit 2100 owner whose set up is somewhat intricate. Due to the bad quality of the pictures that are rather dark and a bit blurred I gave 4-star feedback.

Wire Length Up to 20 ft. Up to 30 ft. Greater than 30 ft. Recommended Speaker Cable Size 16 gauge 14 gauge 12 gauge or heavier
Preparing the Speaker Cable
1. Determine the length of wire necessary to connect your amplifier to the speaker that is farthest away. Remember to allow for extra cable to be able to conceal it under baseboards, or run it around corners. 2. Keep both cable lengths the same in order to help maintain proper signal balance and imaging. 3. Separate about one inch of the two conductors that make up each cable. Then strip off about 3/8" of insulation. 4. Twist each conductorâs thin wires into a tightly bunched spiral. 5. Identify a difference between the two conductors. This may be done in various ways, depending upon the type and brand of cable you are using.
Some of the More Common Differentiating Marks for Conductors Are:
â¢ Different color wire â¢ A strand of thread in one â¢ A colored line on one con-
ductorâs outer insulation
â¢ Raised ribs on one conduc-
torâs outer insulation â¢ A printed (+) marking on one of the insulators
The terminals on the SVA Series loudspeakers can accept several types of speaker cable connections. Remember to connect the red (+) terminal on the receiver/amplifier to the red (+) terminal on the speaker and the black (â) terminal on the receiver/amplifier to the black (â) terminal on the speaker.
