Have an old late 60's SVT 8x10 cab I'm reloading

    But i need some help with the wiring. I wanna wire it up like the newer SVT 8x10's, where there are two 8ohm 4x10's with separate jacks for each 4x10 and then have another separate jack for a 4ohm mono cab (combine the two 4x10's).

    Is there a way to do this without buying the new jack plate etc? Right now I have one Speakon jack on the cab. What I would like to do is just drill two other holes and add 2 other Speakons for a total of 3 output jacks on cab. 2 of which will be for the 4x10's and the 3rd for the mono cab. It would look a lot more steramlined and save of lot of cutting into the cab.

    Can someone tell me specifics on how to wire this? I have 8 brand new Eminence Deltas 8ohm. I thought of wiring the 4x10s in series/parallel for an 8ohm load. wiring those each to individual jacks and then wiring both 4x10's to 3rd jack for 4 ohm load. I have basic electronics knowledge, but need to know what + goes to what - etc.

    Any info on this would be much appreciated.
