My understanding is the Beyma speakers are wired from the factory in a traditional fashion. JBL's were not... they were all wired with positive and negative reversed. If someone had one of yours re-coned, I suppose it is possible that they set it up like a JBL E120... but that's probably an outlier scenario. If you did not pay attention to aligning the wiring to positive and negative... my bet is you simply reversed on of the connections. Either the 9 volt battery test (described above) or reversing one of the speaker connections would tell you the answer. This would apply whether you set them up in parallel or series.
