What is the best way to connect speaker wire?
- Loosen the binding post twist tops enough to expose the wire hole.
- Strip the speaker wire to about 3/8″ to 1/2″ length bare wire. Twist the wire tightly by hand to keep the wire strands together.
- Insert the wires one at a time up to (but not including) the insulation.
Is there a positive and negative on speaker wire?
typically, the positive wire is red and the ground, or negative, is black. However, most speaker wires don’t do colors. It really doesn’t matter, as long as the same wire is connected to the same colored terminal at each end.
How do you hide speaker wires in a wall?
Speaker Wire Tape. If you want truly invisible yet permanent wire placement and avoid cutting holes or installing wires through walls, then a flat speaker wire tape is the best option. These types of wires look similar to a ribbon and can be used in a similar manner as packaging tape.

Is Thicker gauge speaker wire better?
A lower-gauge number indicates a thicker wire, while a higher-gauge number indicates a thinner wire. Speaker wires with lower-gauge numbers are better at carrying an amplified audio signal. However, for longer speaker wire runs (to another room, for example), it is better to use a thicker, lower-gauge wire.
Can speaker wires be run together?
There’s not a safety issue involved, it’s just a matter of keeping the resistance of the wire small relative to the impedance or the speaker for best sound.  Oh, yes nothing wrong with running L & R wires together.
How do you tell which wire is positive and which is negative?
If you have a wire where both sides are the same color, which is typically copper, the strand that has a grooved texture is the negative wire. Run your fingers along the wire to determine which side has the ribbing. Feel the other wire which is smooth. This is your positive wire.
