    It doesn't really matter, inverted will give your sub more airspace though

    Re: Inverted?

    it doesn't matter if you're using 1 sub, but if you are using more than 1, they all have to be facing the same way or you'll have to change the polarities of either one to match the phase of the other.

    Re: Inverted?

    you must switch polarity once a sub is inverted


    if you have vented enclosure your tuning might go down a hair

    people do this to show off the sub's backside or because the want to give the sub more space

    Re: Inverted?

    The sub doesn't displace the interal volume of the enclosure, and if your subs got a nice booty... you can show it off.

    Re: Inverted?

    u do not have to change the polarity if you're using only 1 sub inverted. you only have to change polarity if you are using more than 1 sub where there is a mixing of inverted with non-inverted ones.

    Re: Inverted?

    If you don't change the polarity then the sub may fire out of phase which may or may not cause problems with the rest of your system.

    Re: Inverted?

    switching the phase when inverting 1 sub depends on your system and placement, sometimes switching phase helps, sometimes it doesn't.

    "With only one sub you can wire it in or out of phase. Theoretically, if you wire an inverted sub in phase, it is out of phase. In car stereo it doesn't matter much because we wire subs out of phase alot of the time anyways. Just remember this, if your sub is inverted its cone is moving the opposite direction it would normally be moving. So if you do mount one inverted and one normal they have to be 180 degrees out of phase with each other"
