Light colors are positive, darker colors are negative in most setups. You won't hurt the speaker either way, but the sounds can sometimes sound off (out of phase), if they are backwards.

When you run 2 speakers, one speaker the right way and one the wrong way around (phase 180degree) it will compensate mostly hearable in the bass tones. It will sound weak and not powerfull.
