    First off let me give a shout out to Carvin...........My red eye blew out the diaphram and a phone call later a replacement was on the way.
    Problem is , that in my haste to replace the diaphram I yanked the thing out without taking note of the wiring connections. I know, I know....flame me ok !!

    Anyone Know which is the + and - ??
    One wire is blue, the other is white.

    Jerry,

    Man, I hate it when I do sh** like that!! So... To help a fellow TB'er out, I just now went down and dismantled my RC210. I am assuming that you're talking about the tweeter. I do not see any markings as to '+' or '-', but there is a red dot painted on the magnet, which I assume to be '+'. The blue wire is attached to the 'red dot' side, the white to the other side...

    On that note, I decided to pull a speaker, just to check, (Any comments on my selfless sacrifice to help out are appreciated :D), and the wires were red and white, with the red definitely connected to the positive '+' terminal. Logically, that tells me that white is the common ground, '-'...

    HTH,
