    As long as you were consistent throughout, no. However, it is a little sloppy and isn't terribly difficult to rectify.

    It doesnt "hurt" anything, though as chu says, it indicates sloppiness in your wiring. In which case you might have done a poor job of it, and not made clean neat connections, and you could have strands straying from their posts possibly causing a short.

    Regardless, backwards polarity is a definite phase problem, and easily noticable as crazy imaging behind and around you, and often lack of bass. You should go back and redo all your wiring to rectify this. Though backwards phase and wiring as such, won't hurt anything.
