Ok, so I ran the speaker wires for my surround through the walls, but just realized that there's no way to tell which is positive and negative. How do I decipher?
What will happen if I just run a speaker and it happens to be backward? IIRC, it should still play, but it'll be out of phase, right?
Will that damage anything? Will I be able to tell a noticeable difference if I switch the wires back and forth?
Technically the speakers will be out of phase. Not the end of the world but, try and see if you can figure which side is which by looking for ribs or a colored line on the jacket.
I am an Audio Engineer so feel free to send me a PM if you have any other questions.
