    Polarity?(pos/neg)

    I have heard if your sub is inverted in your enclosure you have to switch the polarity? I guess the mean take the positive to the negative and vise versa from the amp. If this is true could someone please give me an in depth explanation and instructions. A picture would be great. Thanks

    Yeah. There's nothing in depth about it. Take the + from the sub and put it to - on the amp, and take the - from the sub and put it to + on the amp.

    It has do with the direction it fires. The non-invertered push out while the reversed polarity inverted will fire in when the signal is passed to it. Basically they fire oppisite of each other.
