Can you tell us a bit more about that concept and how you go for that, I get that you go for the sound going out of the speaker instead of the speakr "sucking" the air. But how did you discover a full mix that as a good polarity instead of a mixed up polarity. I think it can be something I struggle with now that you talk about it.
