Cross-wired (in the strictest sense) speakers - can they be saved?
 
I have an installation of in-ceiling speakers, using 4-conductor wiring. Well, the wires were mixed up in a connection, with the positive connections going to one speaker and the negatives to another. After the mistake was corrected, neither speaker will work. Are they ruined, or can they be repaired?

I'd be more worried about the receiver since it sounds like the outputs were cross wired as well. Have you checked it with a known good speaker?

Thanks rbinck,

I plan to test the amp.

Someone indicated that I am "going to have to dope out the wiring to get things back to normal."
What does that mean?

I guess that means to continuity check the wires so you are sure which wire is which on both ends.
