    Icon32 Inverted sub Phase?

    If I invert a sub, should I change the phase on it so it's moving the same direction as the other subs when they are going that way? or is that not what changing phase is about..

    I have 2 10"s.. both currently in boxes the same way (sepperate boxes). But, I think something fell in one of the groves/gaps/channels at the dust cap of one of them.. So, I was thinking that if I inverted the sub for a while (a day or so) and ran it at normal volumes (what I listen to now) it might shake it out.. but, if the one sub is inverted, should it be out of phase, meaning, should I change the phase so the inverted is moving into the cabin at the same time as the other 10", or is the intent of the speaker moving 'forward' what matters and I should leave it wired + to +...?

    Any info would be helpful

    I got the same problem. However I was think of putting piece of sound dampening material on it. Subs pounds but that dust cap is so irritating.

    if you invert a sub the best way is to simply just hook the terminals on the sub up + to - and - to + simple

    That's what I was looking for.. wasn't sure if it would matter or not since they are in different boxes, but I thought the waves would be flowing in different patterns and might interfere further out in the cabin.. just wanted confirmation

    Thanks
