    Unhappy Amp and speaker setup help!

    I need so help explaining in baby steps about amp and speaker safe setup, which wires go to which jack outputs ect (diagram if poss)

    I have a Wharfedale BX1060SD mixer amp with power output of 300watt x 2 into 4ohms and I want to run 2 sets of speakers off it safely.

    Also Pair of passive Kinetics 15" impedance 4 or 8 ohms , power handling continuous 250W peak 1000W Programme 500W.

    Both sets of speakers will work with the amp. Those power numbers of the speakers don't really factor in. You can do more damage to a speaker with an under powered amp.
    Power ratings for speakers confuse many people and we get a lot of questions like yours.
    Just pick which ever speakers sound the best to you and don't worry about the power ratings.
