    four 8 ohm speakers into a single 4 ohm design?

    I know four all-paralleled 16 ohm speakers will give a 4 ohm load, but is there anything fancy that can be done with 4 8s?

    geez! :eek: First it's Munji with his wiseacred-edness,
    and now you with the bad puns. Is this part of the mod
    initiation or what?

  6. you can have the 4, 8 ohm speakers in parallel to get 2 ohms...wire them in series-parallel to get 8 ohms, or wire them in series to get 32 ohms...that is your only options.
