I've swapped my M80's a few times and always wonder if it really matters what speaker sits where.
I found a overhead view line drawing for LFR's but haven't found one for the M80's.
I'm not sure it would make a big difference now but I'd still like to know.

There's no difference in the M80s.

An M80 is an M80, there is no left or right.

However... it is important to wire the right speaker to the right amp output, otherwise the train goes from right to left on the screen while the sound goes left to right. Please don't ask how I know whistle

What would happen if you swapped just one of the + or - sides for the fronts on the back of the receiver? Say swap the left/right - wire, and left the + side normal...

Ken, I did say please...

Randy, if you only switch the + / - on one of the speakers, then turn the volume up reeeeeeally loud, the room will spin.

Just re-read closer what you wrote... you should. get no sound from either speaker - there's nothing to complete the circuit.

Is this a test? I'm still on my first grey goosehound. I'll need another if the questions keep coming. On second thought - keep 'em coming!

I knew I wasn't seeing things.
I've got the one side of each speaker exactly parallel to the wall which does allow the face to be somewhat angled towards my seat.
I have no toe-in, just the angles working for me.
I'll be moving my subs and spreading my M80's a bit farther apart mid May.

What do you think that you're seeing? Both speakers have identical, symmetrically tapered sides.

Not sure what to say.
When I enlarge the image and line up the back of the speaker with the bottom of the page the front appears to be slightly angled.

Camera angle, or optical illusion, or whatever, but it isn't.

You probably won't find it as it's my own naming. It's simply a greyhound made with Grey Goose vodka. We usually look for the frozen conc, otherwise the vodka dilutes the juice too much, so; 1/3 FCGJ, 1/3 water, 1/3 vodka - mix well, serve over crushed ice, drink, repeat.

Sounds delish! You were right - I didn't find anything when I asked The Google. I'll have to see if we have FCGJ north of the 49th - I've only seen FCOJ. On the list!

I'm still unsure whether the G stands for grapefruit, guava, or gooseberry.

They all go well with vodka, so it really doesn't matter. Try them all!

When in Hawaii, we get POG (pineapple, orange, guava), in which case the G is for guava and the trio is better with rum.
