At a venue I currently do gigs at there are four 8 ohm speakers, two for each channel in the PA. I'm trying to work out if it's safe to add a monitor speaker to each channel.

They're wired like this; the speakon cable from the power amp goes into one, then an extension goes into the other, and that's it. Is that series or parallel?


Any input = win

Cheers!

soundsa like series to me if they all run on the same line from the power amp but im not certain

So they're daisy chained? I believe that would put them in parallel.

the two on the left are in series w/ eachother, in parallel with the other two
#7
you'd have to check the input and outputs of the speakers
but if i had to guess, it would be series

Alright. Another question, is it safe to run at 24ohms with a power amp?

They're on separate channels the two sets don't correlate to each other at all.

Without know how the extension jack on each cab is wired (I assume each speaker is in it's own cab and each has an input and an extension jack?) it's hard to say for sure. TS needs to be more detailed.

Edit: ^ Is it SS or tube? SS, yes, tube, no.

All four speakers have an input and extension jack. The different boxes in my awesome drawing are different PA speakers, in their own cabs.


^^
Solid state, these are PA speakers.
