    it doesn't matter what color the wires are as long as you are consistant with which ones you use as positive and which you use as negative.

    Re: which wires???

    thats the thing about it.... the woofer has terminals like a sub so i know there right, and on the crossover everything is right i was just wondering if i have the tweeter wired right... right now ive got the black and white used as pos. and the solid black used as neg. would that be right ?

    im not quite sure that has anything to do with what you originally asked.........as long as your black and white wire is consistantly pos/neg and your black wire is consistantly pos/neg than your ok

    ok so what your saying is if i have the woofer (+) and (-) right.... and the input (+) and (-) right.... then it dont matter which way i hook my tweeter up ??? that dont seem right .. what i dont know is which wire is the (+) and (-) on the tweeter.. and the reason for this post was to find out which wire is (+) and which is (-) the black/white wire or the solid black wire

    oh and im not gonna start a new thread just to ask a question about the ohm change in a comp set when it can be asked in this post which is named which wires.....
