Thanks for that wiring insight Prop.

The speaker terminal ID via battery was told to me by a professional audio/video guy who has been doing commercial A/V systems for huge commercial spaces (cathedrals, stadiums, theaters, auditoriums, etc.) for over 30 years.

I used this method to determine the sub-woofer terminals of the factory DSP sub so that I could wire it up for a separate amplifier using high audio inputs for now. When my Eonon GA6166 arrives that will change to RCA low inputs.
