The Lepai amp needs 1. A 12 volt power supply 2. Input from your audio source, this would be screened mono audio leads with a 6mm jack at one end and a phono plug at the other. 3. Connect the amp speaker terminals directly to the speakers. depress the tab on the terminal, this opens the hole, put in the bared cable end, let got the tab and the spring closes the terminal to make a connection. Your Micca speaker terminals may be colour coded, in which case, red to red and black to black. If they are not coulour coded, all you have to do is connect the lepai terminals to the same terminals on each speaker, e.g. red to right, black to left. It won't do any harm if you get it wrong, so it won't hurt just to check. Play a fairly steady piece of music - one without big volume changes, through your set-up, then reverse the connections on one speaker, and play the music again at the same volume. If the volume drops that means one speaker is reverse wired so swop it back again. If the volume increases it means that one speaker WAS reverse wired and it is now correctly wired, so leave it how it is. Be warned that car amps and cheap speakers are very over-rated power-wise. You had best not run the amp at full volume. Also since you already have mic. pre-amps in the signal path, the result may be distorted so you may have to adjust gain and volume settings to remove this distortion. Try different settings to see what gives the best sound.
