Cabinet Wiring...

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Cúl-Báire, May 22, 2005.

  1. Awesome, my speaker arrived today and now am I faced with wiring it up. The Speakon Jacks I am pretty clear about as they have markings, as does the speaker, but the 1/4" jacks I am unsure which part of the instrument cable is Positive ( + ) and which one is Negitive ( - ) ?

    Anyone know this amazingly simple question- or doesnt it mater as only one cable will be used at a time?
  2. On the Jack you will see one lug that is connected to metal on the very back and the inside edges of the jack. That is Negative. The Positive lug is sandwiched in the middle of the two insulators and goes to the long stem that sticks out the back and connects to the tip of the plug.
