How do one wire these speakers?Looking at the pic of tweeter and Mid bass, the Postive and Negative terminal are not mentioned?Is there any way to find out the positive or negative terminal for these speakers?
Otherwise it would be hard to know the phase.

Better way, Use a pencil cell to check the positive phase.

Take a pencil cell and 2 small wires (Red & Black) . Now hook red wire to left hand side terminal and black to right one. Now touch red wire to negative terminal of the battery and black to positive. Now note the speaker movement. If the speaker pops out then the terminal which is connected which black wire is positive and red one is negative & if it pops in then vice-versa.

Please do not do touch the wires for more than 1-2 secs as you will damage the speaker if it gets constant DC voltage.

Thanks for the Info.
Any easier way around,which might not damage the speaker, What about tweeter?How to check for it?
By touching the wires, You mean to connect them to the Pencil cell.

Other way is too hook up the speakers and then listen to setup (what i prefer). There are few test tones too check the polarity.

Please don't try this on tweeter as you can fry the VC.

Yes by touching the wires i meant connect them to pencil cell.

Looking at the pic posted in maual, the postive side of the speaker is marked with a dot, I have attached the pic and the link to the manual. Moreover lookig at the pics posted by LBM both on tweet and Mid there is a small minus sign.But this logic might be totally wrong.

The minus sign is of non-recycle symbol...not the - you thinking of. Also in electronics the red means positive not negative.

And by listing I meant Listening. Sorry for the spelling mistake !!!!

100% exactly spot on - which is why i used the red labelled side as positive for the tweeter and the side with the label on the mid also as positive since the label is stuck on one side and there is a connector tab on that area as well

but i will try to confirm from the Dynaudio distributors here when they reopen after the holidays as to what the story is and whether Dynaudio themselves have any feedback on the issue

Also if we take the tweeter out of the plastic cup and rotate and put it back it will be reversed. So the best way is by listening !!!!!

I think the dyns manufacturer thing the people who will buy dyns knows what phase is all about ...LOL

One of the ways they use to differentiate +ve/-ve is by using different width for each terminal. From pictures it is not so clear, but looks like it applies to these speakers (?)
