    Remind me again...whats the deal?

    Are the cabs wired out of phase or is it something in the amps that are wired that way?

    If I use a Two Rock cab with a non-Two Rock amp head so I need a reverse polarity speaker cable???

    If I have a Two Rock head can I run it through any cab without a reverse polarity speaker cable?

    So, basically, if you were using a Two Rock cab with a non-Two Rock head you would just reverse the connections at the speaker jack?

    You could do that, or if you like them reversed for D-type amps, just use a regular speaker cord...or if you don't wish to solder, use a reverse speaker cord...Best to try both ways and see what you like.

    Depends on the head. Like Budlite said, it works best to have both regular and reversed speaker cables that's easier and a whole lot quicker than reversing the connections at the speaker jack. (unless you have a jack where you can do that without soldering) Try both with each head/cab combination. Listen. Make notes.
