    You won't damage your speakers by reversing your polarity, just they will suck in when they should push out. Make sure they are all wired the same so they all push or suck simultaneously (in phase). Can't see it giving deeper bass.

    Thanks for your help ptbo.

    What should I use to space the front speakers ?

    Spacers or grommets will work with a similar diameter to your mounting screw, take a screw to brafasco or home depot and search for something.

    Help!
    Im scratching my head again.
    My deck is in, the sub is hooked up, the capacitor voltage matches the cars voltage.
    But no sound. I have not wired the car speakers yet.
    I have no antenna plug.
    Could it simply be that until the antenna is plugged into the deck the deck wont pass sound?
    Or that the speakers arent connected so the sub ( rca plugs ) wont get sound?

    My fuses are fine, my cap is working, all wires needed for the sub are connected. Whats going wrong?
    It was working fine when i disconnected it a few years ago.
