Question about Altec Lansing AVS 500 Computer Speakers
Just wondering if you know whether the wiring input from the 18 volt adapter is is negative or positive? I purchased the speakers second hand and there is no indication on the side of the subwoofer as to whether it is a negative or positive. The company seems to be no help whatsoever..
About that Model AVS-500, as shown in picture above-left. The Class 2 Transformer Model No. 9701-00648-I UND from AMC (OEM ALTEC), is not 26 and 26 V, it is Input: AC120V-60Hz 28.5Volts. Output: DC18V 1000mA. This info is from the original part, should you need to buy a Transformer to power the system. Truly a wonderful set!

If you have a digital tester just select DC voltage then connect the positive leads of the digital tester to any of the wire coming out of the 18V adapter (WARNING do not connect to the wire connected to the main) and then the other lead of the digital tester which is the negative connected to the other wire of the 18V adaptor. If in the screen of the digital adapter reads a negative value, then it indicates that the other wire is the negative and the other is positive. Otherwise if the tester reads a positive value then your tester's leads have got the right connection.
P.S. please rate me.
