    That doesn't help.

    If you're using spare wire simply connect the positive end to right red connector and the negative end to the left red connector. Unsrew each connector, insert wire, then retighten.

    For speakon you must unscrew one end of your cable and attach the positive wire to the +1 pin and the negative wire to the +2 pin. Make sure you use the bottom speakon.

    Hope you can figure it out.

    E-mail me at bob_lee@qscaudio.com and I'll e-mail you the manual.

    To bridge the EX 1600:

    1. Turn amp off.
    2. Set switch to "bridged."
    3. Set channel 2 to full gain (knob on the front).
    4. Signal into channel 1.
    5. Connect speaker cable as described on rear panel. You have a choice of binding post or Speakon outputs.
    6. Turn the amp on.
    7. Use channel 1's gain control to set your levels.
