i was changing door speakers and when i took out the factory i couldnt tell which was pos or neg since i didnt hook up the HU.. my frend told to get a batt from a drill and hook that up to the speaker while it was hooked to the door and if it poped up it was right if it poped down it wasnt but how could i know which was pos or neg on the drill batt...i herd some weird sounds while i was doing it coming from the back maybe the rear speakers since i was doing the front anyways think i could have messed anything up by doing that

The wires should have some sort of distinguishable difference between the + and -. Whichever has the stripe, writing, etc. is the positive.

they both have stripes ..one is more colorful..like one would be white with a green line the other would be green with an orange line
