You can gently tap a nine-volt battery to the side of the wire pair that will be connect to the amplifier. When you've got the loudspeaker connected in proper phase, the speaker will push out, instead of pulling in.

Safer to REWIRE SUB Or Speaker With you own Wire then YOU Determin POS and Ground

I have got Philips Home Theatre 5.1 (DSP 25000) , but it is not giving expected sound. Right Rear speaker and Left Fornt Speaker are not giving any sound . Please let me know the solution. I have connected...


Firstly make sure you have connected the speakers to the main system in an proper order. Certain system's have the name of the speaker's mentioned at every output line which is at the rear of the system. If you would connect the wrong wires then it eventually would not play the sound. once this is done make sure that the wires of each speakers are split into two at both the ends. They are normally coded in red and black colours at the tip of the wire. Check if the red of the wire is connected to the red of the system and so on for all the speakers. So try removing all your connections and do it all over in a proper way.

Speaker Err on Yamaha Home Theater Unit ???


I am assuming this is the message that shows up from your receivers front display panel? It could be the receiver is telling you that you may have the neg & pos. wires crossed and in the opposite position either in back of the receiver speaker posts, or in back of the speaker terminals themselves. My Yamaha receiver has this nice feature where it will tell you when the speakers are "Out Of Phase" which describes the problem I have described here.

Just go back and make sure your wires are hooked up correctly, and use tape and a Marker to label pos. and neg so they will be easier to hook up next time you have to move the system, or decide to change some aspect of your system. I would then take the time to label every wire that goes to each speaker that you plug into the back of your receiver. This a BIG time saver........

Speaker wire problem


Yes you can splice the ends onto the existing wires, but first make sure the ends are labeled + or - and make sure you hook the other ends to the speakers the correct way. Before you cut the connectors off of the speaker wires mark one of each of the pairs of the wires with tape, on each side of where you cut it so you can match the wires back up. Are the pre-wired, wires labeled + and -? or red and black? Or one of each pair is a different color wire ie silver and copper? If they aren't labeled its going to be hard to get the correct polarity (+ and -) for each speaker. I hope this helps post back if you have any problems.

Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)


Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!

Wiring color coding For RS tweeter


Different manufacturers use different wiring. Usually the striped is positive.
An easy test is to take a battery (from a cordless drill) or a 9V, and touch the neg + pos to the correct terminal of the battery.
If the speaker pops OUT, it is wired correctly, if the speaker pops IN, reverse the wires.
