    Stereo speaker test?

    This is so silly, I'm almost embarrassed to ask...but is there an easy way to test which speaker is LEFT and which is RIGHT? I just replaced the ones that blew out, and these new ones do not have any indication which is left, and which is right. I can't locate any WAV or sound file that says "this is left" (in the left speaker), etc. Help! <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Re: Stereo speaker test?

    Have you got a little speaker icon in your Systray?
    If, YES : RClick and then Open Volume Controls. By moving the balance sliders whilst playing a sound, you can determine which direction affects which speaker.

    If NO : Control Panel/Sounds. The 'Show Volume Control on Taskbar' is close to the bottom.

    Thank you. That worked great. I also found out (with a quick informal survey of friends with speakers) that if one speaker has the main controls on it, that one is the RIGHT speaker. Sure enough, it is. <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>
