I just joined stack exchange to ask this specific question. I have 6 speakers. All 6 are 8 ohm speakers. There are 2 pairs (Speakers 1&2 are pair A and speakers 3&4 are pair B and then 2 other speakers, lets call them speakers 5&6) Speakers 5&6 are two entirely different models, one is a bookshelf speaker and the other is an 8 inch speaker, but all 6 speakers are 8 ohm speakers.
I have a 2 ch 50 watt amp rated at 4-8 ohms.
I want to connect speakers 1&3 in series to the left channel, 2&4 in series to the right channel. This would create 16 ohm loads on either channel correct?
I want to take speakers 5&6 and connect them in an interesting way... I want to connect the (+) terminal from the left channel and the (-) terminal from the right channel and connect speaker 5, then the (-) terminal from the left channel and the (+) from the right channel and connect speaker 6. This is what I usually do if I want a mono sound for a speaker, connect one lead from left and one from right channel.
What effect does this have on total impedance for the amp?
I've already asked everyone at work, and I am told there is no need to do this, but that is not what I am asking. If there were no need then I would not be asking the question!
