    It doesn't matter, just wire all your speakers the same.
    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    The trick is to always be consistant.
    I always use the stripe side as my positive.

    But as russ said, doesn't matter what you use for + or - as long as you are always consistant.

    What they said. I always hook up the white stripe, or the side with lettering or other marking, to the red post.
