This is the single most valuable tool there is for figuring out polarity out of the OEM amplifier. It’s also the single most valuable tool for finding where you got (+) and (-) backwards. And you do. Trust me, you do. Every speaker and passive crossover is at best a 50-50 shot. This needs to be part of your QC procedure. What’s that? You don’t? Well, you need one, and this needs to be part of it.
Many techs never get beyond “toning speakers out”. They should.
You will want backshell probes and perhaps alligator clips as well, but that’s true for every device with voltmeter-style probes like this one has.
