    I would like to know which way is correct for a Neutrik subwoofer cable.

    Red (right +ve), black (right -ve) and yellow (left -ve)

    OR

    Red (right +ve), black (right -ve) and yellow (left +ve)

    Can someone help me?

    That'll do. :smashin:

    MuFu.

    P.S. It doesn't actually matter which -ve terminal the black lead goes to (and I doubt it matters which way round the red and yellow leads go).

    I have been thinking about making a Neutrik subwoofer cable myself, but I have never wired a Neutrik connector before.

    Does any one know the actual wiring (i.e. which wires go to which pins... ?) inside the '4 pole Neutrik' connector ?

    My subwoofer is a Ruark Vita 100, I am only using the LFE input at the moment.

    Cheers,

    Joao

    Make sure you order a Neutrik 'Speakon' connector.

    Neutrik is the manufacturer, and make a huge range of plugs, sockets and connectors.

    Thanks guys for the help, I digged arround for some Instuctions at home and low and behold there was the wiring diagram.

    Funny how the mind forgets these things.
