I emphasise BOTH speakers because if you reverse the phase of only one, you will tear apart the sound stage.
As far as the amp is concerned, a music signal is so phase-confused that it does not make any difference to the amps ability to drive the speakers.
Strong recommendation .... red to +, black to - on both speakers and at the amp and leave well alone!!
