From power Amplifier 2 Tags: Speakers Power Audio Last response: February 1, 2010 7:42 AM in Home Audio Share Bobbykhan February 1, 2010 7:14:42 AM is it possible to accidentally damage speakers or power amplifier by plugging positive wire into negative port or vice versa. More about : power amplifier Anonymous February 1, 2010 7:42:12 AM If you're talking about reversing the polarity of the speaker wire, no damage will occur but in a stereo pair the sound will be out of phase, giving strangely stretched image. If in doubt about polarity, put the two speakers opposite each other about a couple of inches apart and if it's reversed (out of phase) bass is greatly reduced due to cancelling effect. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
