Hooking up NS40's

Hey, whats goin on everyone.
Im new to the forum here. Just picked up a set of NS40's and the Alesis RA300 power amp. Real psyched to hear them only... Im at a loss as to how exactly set them up. I have a Digi002 r and figured someone on here could run me down on it real quick.

Appreciate it!

You know that if you blow any of those drivers you are hosed, right?

There's nothing to it. A pair of unsheilded copper conductors connects the Yamahas to the amp. Amp connects via shielded balanced cable to mon outputs 1&2 on the 002.

Don't hook them up to outputs 1/2. That will bypass the monitor level control. You'll be running the speakers full throttle and risk blowing them right out of the gate. Attach the Monitor Output 1/2 to the input of the amplifier.
