Question: How do you connect speakers in series?

Is it better to connect speakers in series or parallel?

As a general rule, parallel speakers are louder than series speakers. Thats because: Wiring speakers in series increases the total speaker impedance (Ohms) load, decreasing how much electrical current (amps) can flow. This means the amp or stereos power output will be lower.

When should I connect speakers in series?

To connect speakers inMoreAnd an 8 ohm speaker in series will present a 12 ohm load to the amplifier. To connect speakers in series wire the positive terminal of the amplifier to the positive terminal of the first speaker.

How do you connect two sets of speakers together?

Firstly, you should cut one wire to be closer to one speaker . Then, attach it in a series to the wire of the second speaker . Then, use the other wires to link your speakers to the positive and negative terminals of the amp. Thats it!

Is 16 ohms better than 8 ohms?

There is no difference, given the exact same speaker, between a 16 ohm version and an 8 ohm version. Just match up the impedances to keep your OT from melting down.

Does it matter which speaker wire is positive?

The Importance Of Matching Wire Polarity Correctly Fortunately, connecting speaker wires in opposite polarity will not damage the speaker or the amplifier (assuming the connections are made properly).
