Polk SDA 2 tweeter polarity.

I'm putting a pair of SDA 2 with the single center SL 2000 tweeter back together that have been sitting for a while. Short memory. Want to make sure I have the polarity correct. White is positive and black is negative, correct?

    Just want to be sure as the SDA uses out of phase for the SDA effect.

    White* is always negative in polk with the exception of the RTA12 speakers

    Black or blue = positive
    White or green = negative

    Ok. Just got the replacement tweeter. Want to double check things. Mine are the SDA 2 with the single center tweeter. Now pics I have seen show the tweeters in a mirror image orientation, with the top of the tweet Polk Audio name facing toward the outer edge of the case. So regardless of which way the tweeters are oriented, the black is positive & the white is ground, correct. I don't know why I don't write these things down when I take things apart.
