Hello,\nI just picked up two used Sanyo SS690 speakers after following a 'free stuff' ad on Craigslist.\nThough a musician and filmmaker, I am an all-out novice when it comes to electronic audio equipment. I am hoping to change that gradually, and I am hoping that figuring out what's what with these speakers can be a small step in the right direction.\nI do not have a receiver or any other relevant gear. All I have is the two speakers and the 4 cables (black wires with stripped tips) that came with them.\nI have included pictures of the two speakers, Speaker 1 and Speaker 2, as well as of all cables.\nI do not know the first thing of any importance in setting these speakers up, powering them, or testing their functionality. I also do not know any of the 'terms of the trade' which may be involved in discussing them, though I am hoping to learn these.\nIf anyone might perhaps either direct me to a basic tutorial resource or walk me through the steps (materials needed, steps required [e.g. how to plug the stripped-end cables into the backs of the speakers, etc.]), that would be exactly what I'm looking for.\nNote: as you can see in the photos, there are wires coming out from behind the cone \/ face of the speaker (not sure if I am using correct terminology) in Speaker 2. I am particularly not sure why this is.\nI also was unable to find a manual for these speakers by Googling. So a point in the right direction in locating a manual would also be helpful.\nLet me know if there is any more information I can provide, or if I have made some mistake like posting to the wrong forum.\nI am hoping to utilize these speakers for watching films and listening to music, hopefully loud sometimes. Unfortunately I do not have any budget currently to go after non-free speakers.
