What happens if I reverse the polarity of my MB Quart tweets. Can I do this. Will it damage the tweeters and what kind of diiference can I expect in sound?

It will throw the sound out of phase. People often use this if they receive cancellation with other speakers in the vehicle.

The terminals are labeled + and - only for consistency in wiring. The signal is AC so there really isn't a single direction that things have to be wired to prevent damage. The only thing that really matters is that the sound is in relative phase when it reaches your ears. Sometimes wiring one or more of the drivers "backwards" is what it takes to get this.
