Anyway...

I just picked up a second hand set of Dayton tweets but have a problem. Neither terminal is marked which is pos nor neg! I asked the previous owner and he never knew either. They were never marked when shipped. Anyone know anything?

Thanks...

Shouldn't really matter as long as its a nonpolar system. Remember phase changes can be made at the amp, thats basically it really, and basically the +/- markers are for phasing.

Hope this is right.

Hookup to a small battery, if the cone goes out you have it wired correctly.

Cool, I guess I'll try that with an AA when I'm ready to install. Of course I may switch the polarity anyway on one for tuning. :rolleyes: It is just a good place to start...

The pair of dayton tweets I used to build the home BR-1 kit had either a white dot near the + terminal or a red painted dot on the +terminal..can't remember which. But, look for some sort of mark. I guess not marking an obvious '+' is one of the ways dayton saves $$
