I just connected some Cabasse twin wire speaker cable to my B&O speakers. Unfortunately, I didn't realize they comprized positive and negative wires, as I could not see that they were identified thus anywhere,(both wires inside the outer casing are black)  and I assumed they could could be connected either way round, even though the terminals are neg/pos!  

 

On looking at them again, I now realize one side of the casing has has a groove in it.  I assume this is the positive side.  Can anyone confirm this? 

 

Thank you in advance.

The positive side is which ever side you attach to the positive post on the amp. You can pick arbitrarily if it will be the grooved or ungrooved side. It makes no difference.

Thanks again Jerry.  I have one more issue.  Are you familiar with the male 2-pin plugs used on B&O cables?  There is a flat pin - about 5 mm wide - and a round one.  Can you tell me which one is the positive?  (I assume the flat one, but need to be certain.)

 

Cheers,

David
