Professional self powered speakers and surround sound
Posted on 2007-07-20
I have been asked to set up 4 self powered speakers in surround sound for a temporary outdoor theater. The problem is that the speakers only have XLR and 1/4 inch inputs while the receiver I am supposed to use only outputs to amplified bare wire. Since the speakers are self powered, what kind of device can I use to take the digital output from a DVD player and send the appropriate sound channels to the right speaker vial XLR or 1/4 inch? What if I turned the volume down on the receiver, and found adapters from "bare wire" to XLR or 1/4 inch?
Thank you for your assistance,
