    looking for an aby switcher box with a polarity switch so i can reverse the polarity of one amp if/when necessary.

    is the Radial BigShot ABY and TwinCity the only choices?

    Looks like the BigShot is the best value at $80. Other makes and models that do polarity reverse are > $120.

    The best in my opinion is the Lehle Lil Dual.

    The Lehle Lil Dual, noted above, the DeLisle AB/Y Amp Switch, and the other Radial offerings. There are cheaper passive AB/Ys, like the Morley and EHX units, but they don't have the phase switch (and probably don't isolate A from B).

    Are you talking about reversing the phase of the speakers?

    Pretty easy to do right at the speakers if you need to.

    Take a pedal sized enclosure and install two jacks and a switch.

    The red X pattern are wires that reverse the phase.
