Connecting new speaker Help

I recently purchased a pair of speakers. They have two places for connecting to my receiver. The first set is low input and the second set is for high input. I'm old school -- both system wise and age wise. Dumb question is. To I connect to the Low input and then bridge to the high input? Or vice versa?

makes/models?

What kind of speakers did you buy? And what kind of amplifier do you have? Just checking, but I'm assuming you're looking at a speaker that has four inputs for cables...2 red and 2 black. Are one set of inputs plugged with metal jumper?

Hooking up Speakers

My system consists of a vintage JVC Receiver (early 1980s). My new speakers are Wharfedale's. These speakers have two choices for connection from the receiver. I connected to the lower set of portals (Bass) and I added upgraded jumpers to the connection portals (midrange) above the bottom portals (bass). My question is, does it make a difference which set of portals I run my cables from my receiver to the speakers. Do I go mid-range portal or the bass portal? Your help is appreciated.

connecting

For a standard connection, it shouldn't matter which pair of inputs you use...as long as you keep the jumper connected. That ensures both bass and mid/tweet are being powered exactly the same by that incoming signal.
