Disconnecting a speaker?
Just wanting to have a working cab that I can leave at a practice space (instead of lugging around cabs every single week).
I have an old Peavey 215D. Specs are unavailable online (no idea what ohms it's supposed to run - my amps are happy). Two 15" woofers, full internal baffle. One of those speakers is blown. My finances aren't such that a repair is in order. Can't afford that.
I was thinking to put the good woofer up top (waist height... higher than the old put your amp on a chair trick), disconnecting the bad woofer, putting electrical tape over those cable ends and trying to let them hang out in such a way as not to short.
Not an electrician here but my understanding is that if the amp is wired in series then it simply wouldn't work, but it still would if the amp is wired in parallel. I could be completely wrong about that. But if it's wired parallel and isn't frying my heads, those speakers must be 8ohms or 16ohms. Which means I'd be fine.
