Hiya, Just came across this site after looking for a solution to my problem so this may not be the right section...

What I've done is stripped the black/red wires of a speaker and same of a 3.5mm jack and attached the 2 together and now when music is played it sounds like its this because the wires are now exposed without any shielding?

any ideas to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated

Sounds like the phase is reversed on one of them. Reverse the speaker leads on one of them and see if that clears things up.

If so, then find out which is reversed by putting a "AAA" battery across the terminals when unhooked from the amp. The "+" to red should make the cone go outward. If it goes inward, that's the speaker with the phase reversed.
