    Hey guys, I have a question about wiring a speaker in my old silverface vibrochamp. I just installed a weber speaker and it seems to be working but I'm not sure if I wired it exactly right. I used the same cable from the old speaker with the white and black wires connected to an RCA style plug that connects to the chassis, However I wasn't sure which wire goes to the + and - of the new speaker. Right now I have the black wire soldered to the + side and white to the -. Is this correct? Speaker is working fine and sounds good but I just want to be sure as I'm new to this stuff. Thanks

    Black to - and white to +. This will insure the cone moving forward with the signal instead of back;which would sound out of phase and cancel some frequencys if your playing with others.

    +1, most champs I have seen the white wire goes to the RCA tip. This can be verified with an ohmmeter check for continuity between the tip and the spade connector.

    Yep, white wire is going into the tip, I think I've got it straightened out now. Thanks

    FWIW, black/neg, white/pos is std. Fender wiring code. (at least the older stuff!)
