having a inverted sub does not matter, the only thing is you have to pay attention to is the fact that there is no displacement from the sub. so if you have one inverted and one normal the you will have to build the enclosure accordingly, just remember that the driver is generally the same on the front as it is on the back have a good one !

did you call me a noob?? the sub is the same on the front as it is on the back, so it doesent matter what type of box you put it in it just has to be the right size and be designed to be in a sealed or a ported enclosure.

The absolute phase only needs to be changed if there is a second speaker in the same enclosure that is mounted in a standard fashion or if the speaker is relatively out of phase with the rest of the system; even then, changes in phase have a relatively small effect as the wavelengths of lower bass frequencies are so long.

This is another one of those longstanding myths that car audio can't seem to shake, for some reason.
