Hi, I'm a few days into my new acquisition (Pro) and so just learning the basics. Thanks Chuck for your tutorials, the short plunge is really smart. One question I have with the house rules - in what circumstances would you want to pass rather than attack?

#6782 1 year ago

Hoping someone can verify something for me. I'm switching out my stock speakers and noticed they are wired out of phase. Can someone tell me if the right speaker on theirs is also wired this way?

Thanks - it is weird. But from a brief search it seems to be what they're doing on Spike 1 systems - perhaps for some fake surround sound effects (at the expense of coherency and bass output). More interesting is the fact that they're using red wires for negative. Pins 1 and 4 here are the left and right negative terminals! So I've reversed the wiring on my left speaker so both have red on the negative.

I need some nylon spacers to recess the new speakers so I can fit the grill back on lol, although they seem to fit aesthetically like this too

Edit - scratch that, I'm reading the plug upside down lol. Carry on!

Quoted from chuckwurt:

It’s right. Don’t ask me to explain. Haha. If the sound works they are right.

Ha I want evidence! But seriously, out of phase speakers will still work, and I'm going with in-phase which is sounding good to my fickle ears. Next project is my 18" sub bin

So if red and black are reversed they are out of phase (to another speaker that is correctly wired). Audio signal is purely a voltage - the higher the voltage, the more the cone moves. If one speaker is wired incorrectly it will always work, but when the correct speaker is pushed forward, the incorrect one will pull backwards. So you end up with some frequencies that may be cancelled out, and sounds will reach your ears with incorrect timing so it will sound 'off' to the brain. But they will still always work. It's all about maximising the sound quality (to me) so I'll keep tinkering

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Then why can I go to my stereo downstairs right now, and switch the black and red wires on my surround and then none of the speakers make any sound what so ever?

That's only possible if your receiver has some kind of phase-protection circuitry (I can't imagine why, but it's all I can think of). Trust me, I've been in the audio industry over 15 years and I've also just done it on my GoT

Hi guys, my (Pro) dragon is sometimes not holding the ball when it should (eg mystery), are there any obvious places to check for with this?
