no I won't produce a different type o bass...u will benefit from a tad bit more internal volume...will sound the same

depends...if your box is too small for the sub, then inverting it can give the sub a little more room to breath, so to say.

The sound shouldnt change, but sometimes it looks cool.

It'll raise your internal volume. I've heard of people hearing mechanical noise when they invert woofers.

Won't be noticeably different most likely unless the box is really small and you gain a lot of volume from saving displacement inside. Considering some people gain or lose slightly on a meter from taping around subs, flush mounting, or even changing polarity there may well be a measureable difference, but likely not audible. Could be gain or loss on a meter.

when you invert your sub you should also swap the + and -. ymmv though

Inverting the sub increases enclosure air volume and in relation to the port area and length staying the same, the tune frequency will be lower, but a very small amount, maybe 1-2hz lower.

I need to give you a reason to hit 15K posts, lol. Post back main!

My friend inverted a sub once, even though the manufacturers pamphlet said not to. I think it was RE Audio sub or MTX or something (don't quote me). It lasted about an hour before it went up in smoke. I've never done it, always wanted to. The explanation I got was that; inverting a sub takes a bit of boom out of the sound. I guess it also depends on the sub you're using. I've always wanted to try it with a Focal KX series sub. But they're so beautiful, they were made to be inverted. it would be a shame not to have them on show.

Inverting your sub will increase the box volume giving you the full chamber. This usually doesn't do much because the subs displacement (depending on what the enclosure size is) doesn't affect it that much. For example, an 18" sub usually takes up around .25 cubic feet of displacement. In a 7 cube box to 7.25 cubes you won't notice much, if anything.

The problem with running inverted is mechanical noise (especially on low notes, mostly below 35hz). When the sub is mounted "normally" in the enclosure a lot of that mechanical noise is muffled. If you wanted to show the sub's ***, I would design the enclosure to have some form of plexi or something so you can see the sub. Much more practical than inverting it, IMO

I've always wanted something like a tsns motor on like an 8". Of course the only way to mount it would be inverted but it would be siiiccckkkk hahha

I have the only 3" coiled 8 and thats pushing it with the amount of spider...

Instead of using spiders you could have a potentially limitless amount of excursion by using magnet rings around the basket that could counteract the movement of the coil. The coil wouldn't have any form of suspension attached to it with the exception of the surround, so the coil would be more or less just be floating there lol

To get that exactly right would be insanely hard thou
