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.

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