    Dude inside you should have numbers or HNG or something close to discern. Either way you're going to have two different color wires if the green wire is on + or #1 then green wire on other side needs to be on - or #2 then wire two would be the same.

    Yes you can let the magic smoke out if done wrong. But seriously it's not hard to figure out.
    So the IC pin connects to opposite color on the other speaker?
    I'll pull the crossover out and check when I get some time.
    I'm thinking of just soldering the wires on the pins and making a connect disconnect jig/switch in the middle somewhere.
    Too many things to do... ;)

    Let "green" = unknown wire.

    If you do it the way I suggested above with meter checks to determine which pin is #1 or #2, you don't have to open up anything or care a lick what the wire color is.....just sayin' :)

    Okay right now they are setup as regular speakers.
    I moved the dimensional woofers from both to left speakers mid woofers.
    Now both speakers are working except of course both dimensional mids are bad.

    How critical is matching the dimensional mid?
    It's not getting full signal all the time like regular woofers.
    Can I use mid other Polk speakers?

    After looking at all the speakers I have, some way better as is from factory, I've decided to pass these on rather than investing time and money just to make them work.
    Even then, it'll be whole another ordeal to upgrade plus the huge size.

    I'll list these locally to see if I get any bite before parting them out.
    Thanks for all your comments and suggestions.
