Do you have that many colors with the speakers you bought? Usually, black is ground.

Yes they do.
Take a 1,5 V cell and check the contacts, if the membrane (?) go up it's right (+ and -) if you reverse the polarity the membrane go down with the cell test.

Will it hurt the speaker if you reverse polarity? It'll just sound worse than with correct polarity, right???[:I]
