    I'm putting a LeSon piezo tweeter into a 410 cab. I've been reading through the post and so far I've gathered to wire it in parallel and it does not need a crossover but a cap and or resistor can be used.

    Ok, so does it mater what speaker it's coming off or where the parallel conection is made? The cab has four 32ohm speakers all wired in parallel. And what about the cap/resistor? Should I put them in, what cap & what resistor?
    Or do I not really need them at all?

    Thanks

    Parallel is parallel, so just wire it to any of the drivers. As far as using either caps or resistors with them, piezos do not work with them the same way that dynamic drivers do, and correctly wiring them depends on the internal topology of the driver. For the correct way to use them with a particular driver you should contact the manufacturer.
