John, my thought is "phasing-smasing" try hooking them up each way and let your ears decide which is best. If you can't hear the difference - it's not worth worrying about!

yes, one of my ar90 mid range was connected out of phase which resulted in a total loss in details on one side. I switched the leads and it was just heaven and earth. I have refoamed the mids and the woofers and also replaced the electrolytic caps. I owned the ar90s since 1982 and I have not yet heard anything better for this price.
