You need splitter leads, if you look the two middle phono's are joined together, likewise the two outer phono's are joined.

I can't see what is written by the sockets.

Usually channels 1 & 3 are left, 2 & 4 are right, 1 & 2 are front, 3 & 4 are rear (on ones I've played with, I don't know if that is standard)

Left = white, right = red for phono stereo (that is a standard)

Make sure the polarity of the speakers are all correct (at least all the same way), if one speaker "pushes" while another "pulls" you lose loads of bass.

As much as I try, I just can not get the wiring manual any clearer.
