Default Hi-Vi B3N polarity

Hi,

After searching this entire forum, I just can't find the answer to a very basic question. Guess what, I'm unable to find the polarity of a B3N driver ! I know I can probably use a AA battery and test for the polarity, but I'm afraid to break something...

But I have a clue for you ! There is a red line beside one of the terminal. Am I wrong ot the red terminal is the (+) ?

Thanks for your help !

Dino

Don't be afraid.Use 1.5V battery and there you go.

It's voltage anyway that makes the speaker cones moove.

Just use the battery, then mark the polarity yourself. It's the only way to be sure.

1.5v is only a third of a watt, so there's no danger of damaging the speaker.
