    Unhappy Trying to ohms in

    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.

    Post No problem

    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.
