    Default can't tell my left from right

    This has to be a common question. Just bought a used pair of RT 35s and an old Harmon Kardon HK 450. Sounds great .. but am curious as to how to distinguish the left from right speaker, or if there is a difference with these models.

    Thanks very much for the reply and info.

    They looked the same to me, so I figured they are interchangeable.

    There is a way to verify:

    1. Sit at your listening position
    2. Make sure you're head to pointed straight at the soundstage
    3. Lift and fully extend your right arm
    4. Fully extend your right index finger
    5. Move your right arm approximately 45 degrees to the right
    6. You are now pointing at your RIGHT speaker

    I'm thinking about that scene in Full Metal Jacket where R Lee Ermey slaps Gomer Pyle repeatedly on each side of his face for screwing up the drill.
