Fitting new speakers should not affect the battery as they are only 'live' when the radio is switched on. Do your speakers have a + and - sign on them? If not do they have a red mark under one of the speaker terminals. The important thing is that both speakers are in phase. When the radio is turned on if you get someone to place a finger gently on the speaker cone it will move slightly forwards or backwards, ideally both should move forwards. Another way to check is to use a low voltage battery and connect briefly to the speaker cables one at a time, when the cones move forward this should give you an idea of the + and - Connections
