The Speaker Wiring Diagram And Connection Guide - The Speaker basics and speaker wiring explained 1. What is speaker impedance? (the “Ohms” rating) Speakers, much like other electromechanical devices, all have an electrical resistance to the flow of electrical current, much like a standard resistor, a light bulb, or many common items you’re familiar with. Speaker Loads and Wiring - BustedGear One way is called "series wiring" and the other is called "parallel wiring". Wiring two speakers in series doubles the impedance of one speaker. Wiring two speakers in parallel halves the impedance of one speaker. For example, the diagram below shows you how you can turn a pair of 8Ω speakers into either a 16Ω or a 4Ω load.

It is important to wire all the speakers in the same polarity to ensure correct phasing. Failure to do this will result in some speaker cones moving out Wiring a 2 X 12 Speaker cabinet - COLOMAR Note: For 4 speaker solutions see: Wiring a 4 X 12 Speaker cabinet This Web page contains a lot of information that may be new to you.
