Setting up a denon 1804 and mirage speaker set. i have monster cable for speakers. first question is, i have tried searches to determine the polarity of monster wire, but i havent had much luck. so i installed out the cords with writing in black. should i change it to the red? another question about the speaker connections. i did not use plugs, per my budget shot, i just inserted the wire in to the hole and twisted the cap onto it, when connecting, not all of the wiring would go through the hole. some of it spead out. i made sure it wasnt touching other post. is this bad? I am not getting sound out of my rear left speaker and the sub during the speaker calibration. should the sub make a sound during this? i am going to check their connections, but what else might could cause this problem. on the screen where you specify the speaker size(before calibrating), i just left the 6th speaker as small bc i did not see any other option for it (i do not have room for the 6th, so i left it out). the calibration process goes in this order: LF, center, FR, SR, SB, SL, sub. every speaker before the SB works. my thoughts were, since the sub and SL calibrating process followed what was suppose to be my SB speaker and the receiver didnt find one for it, that it didnt look for the other 2 speakers.
