Creative gets the cake, there's no 32R tap on an AC30. They should either be 2 x 8 ohm drivers in series on the 16 ohm tap or 2 16ohm drivers in parallel across the 8R tap.

Bear with me while I photoshop a slice of cake as dad hasn't cut into it yet

This is the tip of an iceberg of a cock up after the amp visited a local 'vintage amp' specialist. Other faux-pas include two ECC82's where there should be two ECC83's, and an ECC83 where there should be an ECC82. The HT feed resistor should be 22R 10W on this version and it had been replaced with a 220R 6W resistor that had melted all its solder and burnt nearby wiring. The mains transformer tapping was set to 220V instead of 240V and I suspect he must've worked for Behringer as various components had been coated with hot melt glue.

But besides that it was ok? I hope my photo of a slice of cake also will have a photo of a dollop of cream on top!

Would that matter since they were wired out of phase anyway?  LOL

But they are not on opposite polarity. Left hand connector is the + and if you turn both drivers so that connectors are at 12 o'clock, you can clearly see that + in to left driver, - out from the left driver goes to + on right driver and then - goes out to amp, and the grounding for the right hand driver is connected to this -.

Yup, the angle of the speaker does make it look wrong.

I´ve got this waiting for me in the workshop:



The speakers are wired similarly - but have a nice red spot on them for the visually challenged:
