Hey DJJerry.

If you have a pair of F1 812 speakers, I recommend using a 3.5mm to 2 x 1/4 cable instead:


Plug the stereo 1/4" connections into Input 1 on each F1 812 speaker for a stereo setup. 

Daisy-chaining the F1 812 speakers using an XLR cable is also a viable option, though this will mean that both speakers will play the same audio in mono. 

Feel more. Do more. Be more.

Hi DJJerry!

Thank you for your post. I recommend using a 3.5mm to RCA/phono cable (pictured left) to connect from the MacBook's headphone output to Input 2 on the F1 812 speaker (pictured right). 


    


Hope this helps!

Thank yoou Dylan,

 I wasn't sure if you could simply connect it in this way directly from my MacBook Pro. Please correct me if I'm wrong, In order to connect to both F1's, all I would need is an RCA Y from my MacBook Pro? Or, could I daisy chain from one F1 to the other with an XLR cable? Thanks again for your help, I sincerely appreciate it.
