Default Re: Speaker wire polarity test

Speaker wires have groves in the coating of the negative side same as all lamp cords do. Now the question is, is it connected at the correct point on the other end.

That Yamaha is equipped with Atmos EQ. Perhaps it can detect a reverse wired speaker when you run the set up procedure. Just fix it at the back of the receiver if so.

I used to think that wiring speakers with reversed polarity would make them talk backward, or turn them into giant listening devices.

Well they are just the same as microphones on a larger scale.

I have proven that by plugging my old over-the-ear style stereo headphones into one of the input ports on a tape deck.
