Absolute Phase

If you feel your soundstage is to far back, behind the speakers type thing, reverse the speaker cable from your amp (or speakers if easier) so that the negative in from the speaker goes to the positive out of the amp and the positive in from the speaker goes to negative out of the amp, do this for both channels/speakers. You should hear the soundstage jump forward, with the same depth as before. This means you are likely now in absolute phase, gear wise at least for that recording, which is another story, read up out on absolute phase if you have never heard of this before.

Absolute phase is not to be confused with speaker phase, which is where you hook up two speakers out of phase with each other, which will lead to poor sound and might toast your amps power transformer.
