    Wiring Order in Parallel?

    I have a 3 sub sealed box with each SVC sub in its own chamber. I want to invert the two outside subs and keep the one in the middle normal. How would my wiring scheme change/differ if im wiring them in parallel? Would I just reverse the polarity of the middle sub when wiring so they all fire in phase? I apologize if my description or diagram below is bad.

    ie:
    . Subwoofer Subwoofer Subwoofer
    ... Inverted Normal Inverted
    . Regual Pol Reversed Pol Regular Pol


    Amp (+)--------(+)------------(-)-------------(+)
    ....................Inv Sub........Norm Sub...........Inv Sub
    AMP (-)---------(-)------------(+)-------------(-)

    Cool, got it bookmarked, but my question still stands. Would I just reverse the polarity of that middle sub speaker since its mounted in the opposite direction of the other two?

    thanks for the help

    Yes, otherwise it would be hitting 180* out of phase and that would cancel out a lot and sound like poo.
