    Help! At a loss on how to hook speakers up to this old "The Fisher" TX-50 Stereo Amp. Seems there's one post per speaker? Positive and negative for each speaker? I'm at a loss, not a lot of info out there on the interwebs for this vintage amp. Pictured is the speaker connections. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! IMG_9783.jpg

    Correct. Common is NEGATIVE. MAIN and REMOTE should be self explanatory. It's NOT gonna run with a missing fuse and fuse cap.

    Guys since the po’s request has been met I’m going to ask a question.
    When using this style of screw connector on our Fishers, what do you like to use as a wire end to connect to the amp/receiver?
    I’ve been using the type on the left in this pic.

    An old Knight very early stereo amp I had was more confusing. The front panel labeled the channels as right or left. The inputs were labeled 1 or 2. And the speaker connections were labeled as A and B.
    You couldn't connect anything until I relabeled the connections as L or R.
