    I’m pretty sure I’m reading this post above correctly but I just want to be sure before I swap & resolder my new 8 ohm speaker. My game is in pieces right now.

    On my old Stern Meteor speaker, the green/yellow wire runs to the ‘positive’ lug (on the side with the red dot), and the green/white wire runs to the ‘negative’ lug. See photo.

    The +/- lugs on the new speaker are clearly marked, I just didn’t want to solder them incorrectly.

    Thanks

    Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

    Yep, just transfer the wires across:
    Green-Yellow to the "+" (positive) lug.
    Green-White to "-" (negative) lug.

    Does is really matter what lugs you connect to when it's the only speaker in the game? I thought that was just for when you've got multiple speakers in the same cabinet and you wanted to make sure they were all in phase. Like maybe in a guitar cabinet that has 4 speakers in it. You want them all to be moving out and in at the same time. When it's just one speaker, I don't think it really matters.

    Sure, it's probably best practice to hook it up "right", but I thought I'd check my logic.

    You're right, it doesn't really matter in a one speaker system and I've been tempted to say it, but aesthetically there's less chance someone down the track will get confused by the speaker being connected "opposite/wrong" and blaming hum or some other sound issue on it

    I want to replace these two 4” speakers for my Xenon.
    Any suggestions?
    Amazon or other links are welcomed for you guys that know how to find compatible replacements quickly.

    Of course it matters, if you hook the wires up incorrectly the speaker cone will move in the wrong / opposite direction - when speaker is creating sound, cone is intended to be moving outward

    I purchased these for my Flash Gordon, but I don't have the game working yet so I haven't installed them. They have to be better than the old junk speakers that are in there now.

    On a Stern Sam's game say Metallica are the backbox 8 ohm and the Woofer 4 ohm.
    Is that also for a Spike game like Aerosmith?

    Would this work?

    Quoted from DGMartin:

    If you want to get creative you could always cut a larger rectangular hole in the bottom of the cab and then use two 4 ohm speakers wired in series side by side. Wiring them in series makes the two effectively 8 ohm. If you have access to a junk yard, most cars use 4 ohm from the factory and the door speakers are usually 6 inch. Chrysler still uses 2 ohm, so don't use em unless you want to wire up 4 of them in series.

    Doing this with my meteor refurb.
    Trying to figure out a way to put an
    inline amp in to maybe boost output.
