Can I ground the negative wire from my speaker, or do i have to run it to the reciever? Answered
I am connecting my 5.1 speakers to my receiver to my PC. The surround (back) speakers are fairly far away and I have limited speaker wire.
Is the negative post on a speaker just a ground wire, or does it contribute to the speakers function? Can I just solder it to something metal? Alternatively, could I daisy-chain the negative posts of the speakers and run that to a single negative post on the receiver?
