        DO NOT use a 9V battery on a tweeter, or any driver. Unless you think buying a new one is worth finding out which terminal is positive.

          I typically use a AAA, but Alan (AE) assures me a 9V won't hurt due to the short time-span the battery can produce the voltage through the driver.

          I have the 25-1414, and the larger is the positive.

            Correct me if I am wrong, but in my experience, the smaller one is always negative.

              Not always.
              Audax used to have 'positive-small' configurations, so it really depends on the drivers/manufacturers.

                On every Tang Band driver I've ever used the Positive terminal was identified by a small drop of paint, usually dark blue or red. IIRC it's always on the larger terminal as well.

                I veified this via a TB Tweeter and mid-woofer, so i'm fairly comfortable with this ;)

                One other thought, Wolf is a natural born contrarian. If there's a slight chance of something being other that the standard he'll reference it for ya! Ain't that right Wolfie!!

                  There is a little yellow spot on the larger terminal. I wasn't sure if it were corrosion or paint. And I'm color blind, had to ask the wife...
