View Full Version : Trying to ohms in
08-12-2001, 12:04 PM
I have two Polk Audio EX series 10”subwoofers rateds at 4-ohms each
Is it possible that I can hook them both up together, so they can be rated as 8-ohms drivers? If so can anyone fill me in on the details.
Thank you for the help anyone.

I saw you on the tech forum, but I'll answer over here:
If you wire them in series, (connect the "+" terminal on one woofer to the "-" of the other, and then connect your amp to the remaining two terminals) they will behave as a single 8 ohm woofer.

Thank you for the information, really appreciate it.:)

Remember: Assuming you're using identical speakers, wiring in series as described above will double the impedence; Parallel wiring (running the "+" and "-" from each speaker to the amp) will cut the impedence in half. Those two 4-ohm subs wired in parallel would present a 2-Ohm load to your amp.
