It met requirements of the veterans home which we support. The veterans and the staff will be very happy to have two new boomboxes that are dependable.

Can my outdoor speakers be connected to this unit that will sit indoors? My outdoor speakers have wires that run into the unit I now own.
jan p on Nov 2, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Jan,

There are a few "Yes, IF..." ways to answer this. Generally speaking;
Yes, IF you do not wish to use the speakers that this unit comes with. Integrating Your speakers will split the power, and may not provide a desirable quality sound. In addition, this may drop the impedance of the internal amp, causing it to overheat. I'll save the fancy terminology and just say the main unit may not like additional speakers.
IF you are ok with NOT using the speakers this unit comes with, then you will need to CUT the speaker wires that the RCA speakers come with, and attach them to the speaker wires that run to YOUR speakers. This is because this unit uses a Proprietary Plug, pictured below, to make connection.
Point is, not impossible, but the unit is not intended to be used with other products.
