I'm probably going to use Radio Shack's white coated speaker wire to hook up my Polk 6700's in order to hide the wire as much as possible.


This wire, however, has two copper strands and no visible means of determining which side would match to the 'other' end.


Is there a simple test so that I can end up with black to black and red to red on my receiver to speaker connections? I've heard of battery and light bulb tests, etc. but have no facts nor way of figuring it out on my own.


Thanks.

If you look at the wire very closely you should see a tiny ridge molded into the wire's insulation on one side only. Use that as your guide to keep your polarity correct. If you look at most lamp cords you'll see the same thing.
