Looking at the output graphs, Audio Technica cartridges might not be the ones to use when the tweets are backwards with their high end bump.
You simply change the connections - what was the negative end of the ribbon (the bottom?) becomes the positive end.
Yes but did those that are listening to the music backwards do this or not and how did it affect the tunes?
you need to reverse its polarity ... otherwise you screw up the ribbon/mid crossover circuit (and it will sound baaad!).
The frequency response shown is for the tweeter only. If you flip the tweeters you must change the polarity of the them. Best done at the crossover.
The graph is showing the response at a distance of only 11 cm! At greater distances it is different.
