Using heavy gauge Pig Hog brand cables which have hard plastic encased ends. Quality cable but I have to assume they are properly wired as the ends can not be opened to inspect.
An ohm meter and a couple of seconds will tell you if the cable is wired correctly

You could also use free software such as Room EQ Wizard to run sine sweeps (or Smaart if you have it) , then overlay all the phase traces. I do this as part of a routine bench test, and also to check boxes before an install.

Probably overkill for the simple test the OP needs.

Probably. Depends how many boxes there are, I suppose.
