Default Blackgate N series polarity

The Blackgate N Series are known as no-polar cap,
does that means that I can mount it either way, don't care about the polarity of positive or negative?

I really don't know. Have not tested.
However it is said that some caps sounds better one way than the other.

Don't BG recommend mounting in pairs - one facing one way, the other the reverse direction ???

They can recommend whatever they won't but mounting them in pairs never sounded good to me. As to BG N orientation, I like them with short pin (NONPOLAR print side) on +
