Connecting loudspeakers whatifs... 2019-01-23 19:03:15 Hello all.I have a theoretical question. I have an amplifier, 2x50W, and two speakers, 2x70W - for example. Usual way of connecting them would be from amp plus to speaker plus, minus to minus, both speakers. If one speaker is connected in reverse order, amp plus to speaker minus, speakers would be in reverse phase, and sound would be very bad.But, what happens if both speakers are connected reversed, from amp plus to speaker minus? My understanding is that speakers would still play as they should, because signal is alternating current. But my colleagues say that they won't play as good as they should, especially at higher loudness level, arguing that speakers would make stronger inward motion than outward which could be blocked by magnet and/or something in speaker construction. I find that hard to believe, but again, I don't know much about speaker construction, and how much the membrane is moving forward, outward, and how much back, inward. Also, that situation is supposedly worse for compression boxes vs bass-reflex boxes. How much of that is true? Can somebody explain that, give examples, links...?I've tried searching for that, but web searches gave various situations, and 99,99% are reverse phase situations.
