    Switching polarity

    Does anyone know much about switching the polarity to give you better imaging. I know that trial and error is a good way to go about it but I do not always have that much time. I have my tweeters in the pods that are close to the outside side mirrors, where many cars have them. The tweeter on the drivers side is much closer to my head and of course overpowers the passenger side tweeter, would switching the polarity on the drivers side possibly help this or would you switch the passengers side.

    thanks

    You could try, probly wont help though. Usually polarity switching is to combat cancellation, but switching the polarity on a tweeter will change the response by like 10,000th of a second
