hi guys

i really need help, i dont understand all this stuff so i need simple answers and no explanation just a straight answer if i can do it and how to wire it up.

ive got a 1000 watt konig amplifier that operates at 8 ohms and 4 ohms and 4 300 watt speakers at 4 ohms, i think. the speakers have only one speakon input at the back how would i wire these up????????????

Either series/parallel or parallel/series.

The part of this image that has 4 speakers marked 8 ohms is parallel/series.

You'd want to wire each pair of speakers in series and then wire the pairs together in parallel. Or vice versa. That'll give you an 4 ohm load and you'll get max power out of the amp.

the amp has stereo output and i want 2 speakers per output, and theres no positive or negative as the input is speakon, im confused as to how i would wire it?

Aha. So, you'll want two separate series pairs of speakers. Then wire the two sets to a speakon connector.

i sound really stupid here but could you give me a more detailed wiring diagram, and tell me what the final impedance goin into the amp would be

#7

Using the image from post #5, you'll have these two sets (stereo mean two channels):

You'll have (2) 8 ohm loads. The left channel will have an 8 ohms load and the right channel will have an 8 ohm load.

#8

so with the end of the speakon connectors ill have to wire the positive on one to the negative on the other, and then take the remaining two wires and wire them to the speakon connector that connects to the amp?

A speakon connector (typically) has 4 wires. If you've got a stereo receiver, make sure you have a 4 wire speakon cable. Getcha one of these (http://www.samash.com/p/Neutrik_NL4MPR%20Speakon%20Jack%204%20Pole%20Male%20Chassis%20Mount_-49971501) and wire it up just like I've shown in the diagram. The spot labeled "+1" in post #7 goes to the spot labeled "+1" in post #5, etc.

You're going to have 4 wires. I'm not sure if you understand that in post #8. So, I'm repeating it. There are 4 wires in a speakon connector and there are 4 wires in a stereo setup.
