    mounting inverted

    i have my two subs wired down to one ohm... all i need to do is reverse the speaker wire into the amp, right (positive in negative and negative in positive)?

    my headunit also has a 'reverse' setting... does that just reverse the polarity on the headunit or can i just use that instead of rewiring?

    thanks

    Re: mounting inverted

    you dont wire them any different, you just change the phase on your amp and reverse polarity on the HU brah

    i was told "when you wire inverted you wire the subs like you would usually do, but just switch the positive and negative at the amp"

    What if your hu doesn't have a reverse option on it? And phase if there's a 0 and 180 switch do you switch it to 180? Sorry op just curious. Lol this has always confused me.

    Same with my sae1200d. Lol and what if they're quad coil subs instead of dvc? This is so puzzling. Haha

    Re: mounting inverted

    I believe either / or would work.



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    Re: mounting inverted

    Either will work. If you have one sub inverted and one not, you would then need to switch the phase 180 degrees on one of those subs

    Re: mounting inverted

    Inverting woofers -- what does that change?

    So yes, you can either do it on the HU (at least that's what it sounds like that setting does, you might want to read the manual to make sure) or just wire the subs differently.

    I heard that all you do is switch speaker wires, like you originally said boombox stereo

    Re: mounting inverted

    Whether you do it at the head, the amp, or the speaker terminals, it's all the same thing. Being able to do it with a switch on the amplifier is more convenient than rewiring the drivers. Doing it at the head is more convenient than getting out and doing it at the amplifier. Choose one and only one way to do it.

    The reason you're doing it is to get the best phase integration between the front stage and the subwoofer.




    Fuck...

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    Re: mounting inverted

    Often times running subs out of phase blends with mids better anyway. I never even pay attention to phase going into my woofers and typically test on the HU and go with whichever blends best.
