If I have

{2 x 12" (parallel) Crate Custom Design, 4 ohm total}

^ that

what are the ohms of each speaker?

I need to know because I'm going to use my combo as a cabinet while I save for something nice.

Assuming the speakers are the same impedance, the impedance of each speaker is 8ohm. Two equal impedances in parallel = half of the impedance.

EDIT: spelling mistake....
Thanks but What would the ohms be if I wired them in series?

Total resistance in parallel:
R(total)=1/((1/R1)+(1/R2)+etc...)

Total resistance in series:
R(total)=R1+R2+etc...

AP Physics was a very useful class. These should help you in the future.

Edit: Thought someone would answer your question. Assuming that both speakers have 8 Ohms of resistance, then you would come out with 16 ohms by wiring them in series.

Thank you for the post, I've got the info I need, Off to buy a jack!

Actually, if the total ohms is 4ohms, then each speaker would be 4ohms if wired in parallel.
