hey, ive got a spider III 15 watt amp and im i was wondering how easy it would be to add a second speaker. Is it worth it? The amp is currently rated at 4 ohms with its 8 inch speaker, and the 6 inch speaker i want to add is 8 ohms (from a G10 MK II Marshall). i think it would be easiest to add the speaker in series with the other. how would this change my sound?

Uh...it wouldn't change your sound, nor would it be worth it.

for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.


Don't judge me.

I think it probably would change the sound. Not sure if it'd be worth it or not, but it'd be interesting to try.
Putting them in series would create a 12-ohm load (you might already know that). The amp is designed for 4 ohms, but it should still work with 12.
If you wired them in parallel, then you'd be at 2.67 ohms, and that could damage the amp.

12 ohms would cut the volume alot. But the trouble of adding the speaker wont make much if any difference in the amps tone.
#5
adding the other speaker will do absolutely nothing for volume, and if anything, make the tone worse I would think.

It is kinda funny now that I think about it It's like a lackie coming up with what he thinks is a good idea and his boss yelling at him and saying he's stupid.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
