Polk reference signature 2 cable

I just bought a pair of the Reference signatures and need the cable,the speakers have the blade to blade connector ,can I make my own and if so do I wire one wire to large blade and then one to small and keep them the same on both ends.

    Big blade to big blade small to small. If you do it as you described you will be very sorry.
    Call polk cs they used to send out after market ends for you to make your own. They may very well still make them. There will be a charge if they still make the complete cable. It will be a ton less than the folks on eBay charge for the cable

    True but I thought it might be a bit much. Without knowing abilities it just might be way over complicated.

    Wait until you have the cable if you think they sound good now!
    Call Polk Customer Service ask for Kim Jasper he is the man ;)

    If simple, talk to Polk first

    2nd option suggestion would be the speakon conversion IMHO

    Drill hole in connection cup, few female spade crimps, and your up and running

    We can walk you through

    Welcome to Club Polk

    Got pics of these speakers, we like audioporn

    4 calls today to Polk customer service and each time had a wait of over 20 mins, twice calls were cut off before reaching tech support.Can anyone tell me how to make the cable that goes between the speakers.I thought if I wired one wire to large blade to other large blade and other wire to each small blade and member told me I would be sorry,so I guess I should hook on one end a large blade and hook the other end to the small blade .

    You want to connect the large blade to large blade, small blade to small blade. Your amp must be common ground.

    Cinch sells a terminal that will make things easier for you.

    No i told you DO NOT go from large blade to small blade !!! Keep large blade to large blade. SMALL BLADE TO SMALL BLADE.
    GO to auto store find spade connector that are the right size for both connector holes. Crimp on wire. Think of it this way LARGE blade is POSITIVE and. SMALL blade is NEGATIVE so IF your using speaker wire most is marked positive and negative put larger blade (spade connector) on positive side Put smaller blade ( spade connector) on negative side.

    Remember SDA's run parallel to the wall no toe in. 5-6 inches off the wall
