I'm puzzled- making speaker cables from Duelund dual 12 GA wire.
Measured with multimeter:
B/w two separate conductors- 6.5 Ohm
two ends of the same (presumably) conductors- 0.2 Ohm
Which one is continuous?, the one with 0.2 Ohm reading?
Shouldn't the measurement b/w two different conductors be "OL"?
When measuring impedance/resistance,the .2 ohm is continuous.You may actually see the impedance of the "probes".The resistance should be "infinite" when connecting to one end of the POS and an end of the NEG conductor.Probably "blank" or at least 1000 ohms, representing "infinite".
Hope this helps.
Is it possible that the speaker is connected ?
The DC resistance of the speaker is probably about that (6.5 ohms).
But how is it possible to measure 6 Ohms b/w POS and NEG conductors inside the common jacket.
Like you said, it should be "infinite"?
If your set of cables is not hooked up to anything you should not get any reading between positive and negative.
