Hi guys,

How do you wire four 8-ohm speakers to get 4 ohms total impedance for your typical 4x12 Celesion cabinet?

I just did the math ... maybe I'm missing something but I can't figure out how to get a total impedance of 4 ohms from 4 8-ohm speakers without doing something weird like adding in a resistor or something.

If you wire them all in parallel, that gives you a total of 2 ohms. If you wire them all in series that gives you 32 ohms. If you wire 2 in parallel, and the other two independently in parallel, then both sets in series that gives 8 ohms. Or do you have to wire like 3 in parallel and one in series or something?
