I am making a set of speakers using 34.5 AWG magnet wire, and neodymium magnets to make a voice coil.
For my wire gauge and required length I should have ~3 Ω (DC), 4 Ω (AC).
The issue is when I went to check the resistance in the wire after I cut it from the spool, my multimeter didn't pick up any readings. I went and bought some alligator clip test leads and tried again; still nothing. I've used the multimeter before, the cables are plugged into the right ports, and I’ve tried all the range settings for DC resistance.
I'm trying to avoid winding the coil and gluing the whole unit together, just to find that it doesn't work.
Any suggestions to get the multimeter to read the resistance? It should be about 3 Ω for the length I cut.
