Hello people,

Considering I have a few cabs which all hold 15" drivers what wires would I need to:

1) Connect the Amp to the Cabinet (Would 14 gauge be appropriate?)
2) Wire the driver to the inside of the cab (to the speakon socket)

Also, I have 2 custom scoops which hold 2 15" drivers each, from what I can tell so far it will be best to load them in series...Any thoughts?

Any help would be appreciated, very new to this and want to get this system up and running!

Thanks

Two more very useful books, both can be found from various ssources on the internet with a bit of looking:

The Art of Electronics (2nd edition onwards!) by Horowitz and Hill
Lots of essential Electronics theory in this!

The Loudspeaker Design Cookbook by Vance Dickason
Also can be found on the internet...

Hope these help!

I just registered to this forum & you seem to be knowledgable so hopefully someone can answer this... I have an 8 ohm 3 way cabinet speaker w/ 3 (5 ohm) speakers inside that are blown all to crap. My question is that if I replace the 5 ohm speakers inside w/ 4 ohm speakers what will the resulting impedance be? I know that's probably not possible to answer be its something to do with the crossover but, since it magically turns 5ohm speakers into an 8 ohm cabinet what would it make 4 ohm speakers? Lol thank you for any & all advice!
