    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.

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

    Re: inverted sub box

    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.

    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.
