    just wire the neg wire to the positive terminal on one side. I dont actually think ti will sound good, but that is how its done.

    Well, since there's only 2 wires on a tweeter, what does logic lead you to conclude? I mean the only thing you can do is mix up the wires.

    Exactly, but only mix one side. Left or right, it doesn't really matter

    Is there no attenuator on the crossover?

    Why not listen to the thing before you change up the wiring because it MAY sound "bright"?

    Re: How do you wire tweeters out of phase?

    won't make a diff on tweets since the freq being played is too high. Mount them off axis, put speaker grill cloth over them, set xover to -3dB. lots of ways to tame them down some...

    but as others have said listen to them first.

    agreed being out of phase will not change level except around the crossover frequency.

    aiming them off-axis can help with this.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Re: How do you wire tweeters out of phase?

    I have my tweets in the sail panels aimed back at me at 45 degrees(off axis was to much) and the x-over attenuation to -6db and on the hu eq -2db@15khz it seems to really bring them down to a level that blends well with the mids.
