    Two 4-ohm speakers in parallel = 2 Ohms resistance. Think about putting two water pipes in parallel to pass the same amount of water, less resistance.

    You will need a 4-Ohm capable amplifier. You will fry your receiver with 4 Ohm speakers.

    And as for series wiring.... What do you want to do - wire them in series to a single channel? You might as well get 4 speakers then... Just get a proper amp.

    Well it is the SDA2A that is rated at 4 ohms but I wanted to test them out at home but I only have a 8ohm receiver.

    Also, don't run them in parallel or series with anything. Just run them by themselves and on their own respective channels.

    As stated above, you are safe as long as you aren't running them at ear bleeding levels for long periods of time.

    So I agreed to meet this guy to buy the speakers and asked if we could meet at this gas station where I know there is a power outlet and could hook up my receiver to test the speakers. His response was no. He said he didn't have enough time to spare me 5minutes to hook up my receiver to the speakers so I can see if they even work. Something seems super fishy about this deal so I am not sure if I am going to go forward with it.

    Well evidently there's something wrong with the speakers. Sounds like hes just looking for some smuk to dump them on!

    Sometimes those fishy deals arent so fishy..some people just want big speakers gone and dont have time to mess with it. There are alot of people out there that could care less & dont need the money & just want to be rid of items....last year i bought a set up-- Onkyo receiver. Cd player. Klipsch kg4's all mint for 40.00 in a glass case with all accs....they said nobody responded' till i did 2 weeks later....the had spelled Klipsch= kipsh speakers--otherwise they would of sold in a day--listed in yard sale
