Default Re: audio experts might have a ? that will stump you

i would take one wire on eithere end and ohm it to a ground to see if there is short you will see some resistance you more than likely have a short. No short the ohm meter should not measure because there is no connection between the 2.

Also ohm out the invidual set of wires to each other makeing sure they are not connected to anything and not touching at the ends. Should have the same reading as the first test mentioned.

Kinda hard to explain excatly what to do in words.
