speaker phase wiring

Recommended Posts

I use my amp with either a Peavey cab, a Purple Chili cab or an ATS cab. I am building a cab with a 12" speaker. 

The speaker has a plus and a minus, but the jack socket doesn't. How do I know which terminals to use ? Does it Matter ?

thank you both. The socket is a little different - sealed. I have checked the connections, and the shorter one in the photo is the end bit of the jack plug. So is this the Positive ?

TS plugs/jacks have tip (+) and sleeve (-), TRS have tip, ring and sleeve. I suggest you tin the cables to tip and sleeve.

The phasing actually matters, if you happen to use several cabs. The easiest way to check phasing is to use a 9 V battery and check which way the cone moves when you connect the battery + to the speaker + (and grounds together). Phase is OK, if the cone pushes forward.

Put a jack plug in. The tip is the positive connection so you should be able to see  where that mates up to
