Check the wire's insulation for ridges or striping; if the insulation is clear check the color of the wire inside. Then check the source of the wire to determine which polarity is connected to which wire. Once you know the polarity of the wires at the source, it should be easy to determine the polarity of the wire at the destination. The wire closest to the particular banana clip is most likely the one connected to it. If all else fails, you could use an OHM meter.

Pyle's PADH 215 comes with three different types of connections.... Banana Plug, 1/4" and Speakon. You can use any with this speaker. The reason there are two of the 1/4" connections and Speakon connections is that this offers the ability to daisy chain multiple speakers together as long as you watch your ohm load. And no it doesnt matter which connection you plug it in to
You would use a standard banana plug to either a 1/4 phono or speakon plug. The JBL JRX 115 has both on the back. All the outputs on the Yamaha RX V673 have banana plugs. The channel you plug into would be up to you, there are many choices and they are listed on the back of the unit.
In case you don't have one, here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/80300573.pdf I don't know if you are using a separate crossover between the mixer and the amp but here is the simplest explanation.I just reread your question and I don't even know whether you have a Peavey amp. Run proper cables from the main output of your mixer to the main inputs of your power amp.They will be 1/4"shielded cables or Balanced XLR cables. Do not use unshielded speaker cables to hook the mixer and the amp together.Run speaker cables from the speaker outputs of the amp to the input jacks of your speakers.Make sure the impedance of your speaker cabinets equals or exceeds the impedance rating marked on your amp. Here is the link to the newer model PV2600 manual:http://www.sweetwater.com/store/media/pv2600_doc_manual.pdf Don't use Speakon cables unless your speaker cabinets are equipped with Speakon input jacks. Banana plugs aren't as solid a connection as the binding posts are.
Has it worked before? There is a frequent problem caused by arcing between circuit layers in the power amp section. There is a hazard that I wrote a tip about on here regarding speaker hot polarity when using Speakon to 1/4 inch plug cables. If no lights come on, the power supply in it has failed, usually because of the arcing problem. If things light up and effects windows can be changed, plug in headphone and see if anything comes through there.
