Phase vs. Polarity

What is the difference between phase and polarity?

Simply put phase represents the relationship in time between any two or more frequencies. This range could be anywhere from 1 degree out of phase to 179 degrees out of phase. Polarity on the other hand is either correct polarity or reverse polarity. You can be “in” or 180 degrees out, period.
