ohms of speakers in cabs

I found myself researching and struggling to find the answer to what seems to be a simple question. if you have 2 speakers that are 8 Ohms each how many ohms is the cab they're in all together? The question is for 2 carvin neo 15s that I installed into a cab. They are 8 ohms and 600 watts each. Is the cab running at 8 or 4 ohms?

This can be found in the FAQ's as well as too many others. Wired in parallel two 8 ohm speakers equal a 4 ohm load.

Wired in parallel, the impedance of the cabinet would be 4 ohms. Wired in series, the impedance of the cabinet would be 16 ohms.

Thanks for the help. I'll have to double check that!

positive to positive to positive, negative to negative to negative=== parallel --- 4 ohms

source positive to speaker(1) positive; speaker (1) negative to speaker (2) positive; speaker (2) negative to source negative==== series---- 16ohms
