    Hey guys,
    Ok I thought I was up to date on my series vs parallel, but I'm completly lost. Here's a useful diagram!

    How do I get this to drop to 2 ohms? There's no indication as to which is negative, but I'm just guessing black

    If it's a 4-ohm cab, you can't do it. If it's an 8-ohm cab, you might. If it has four 8-ohm drivers in series-parallel to get the 8 ohms, all's you'd have to do is wire all four drivers in parallel, that is, all the positives connected to each other and all the negatives connected to each other.

    It is an 8 ohm. I know it's alot to ask, but is there any way someone could do a quick picture to show me what it should look like? Munjibunga, your description was perfect it just isn't making sense in my head, I'm not sure which parts are positive and the horn kind of confuses me too :bawl:

    Actually that pos to pos and neg to neg is series IIRC. Paralel is what he has drawn up there IIRC. And I could be all wet but I think this is correct. Just want to make sure

    Yup, the speakers are in parallel. So they cannot be wired up for 2 ohms.

    No, they're in series-parallel. If they were in parallel, the blue wires would all go to only one side of all the speakers. To wire them in parallel, the blue wire would be daisy-chained to the same side of all four speakers. The black wire would do the same to the other side of all four speakers. I don't know what the hell you do with the tweeter.

    OK, here's a cruddy drawing of parallel wiring.

    I stand corrected. You are correct,And my memory is not what I thought It was.
