    I read that reversing the polarity of harsh tweeters tones them down a little bit. I tried it out and it does.. Why is this? Is it safe to keep them like this? Thanks!

    perfectly safe.
    if you understand what reversed polarity does it makes explaining much easier.

    If indentical sound wave A in 180 degreese inverse of sound wave B they cancel each other out and they become inaudable.

    Long story short, in your case you are cancleing some of the high end frenquencys.
    It is not a "correct" method, but if it sounds good to you then stick with it.
