I have an amp which inverts phase . Do I change the polarity of both speaker outputs or just one of them?

I'd do both.  Inverting one channel will result in cancellation, especially noticeable in the bass region.  Try it just for grins anyway, I think you'll be glad to change both speakers.

Ed accidentally wired one Horn out of phase once and the pair sounded broken.  The only mistake he ever made. Wink

You can reverse both channels and it might make a difference. If you only flip one channel, you will definitely screw up the sound. Especially the bass.
A long time ago I went to a Decware Zenfest where one speaker cable was wired wrong. Nobody noticed because the red and black leads seemed to match. Everything sounded bad. It was hours before the guy who made up the cable realized his mistake.
