can anyone tell me how to rewire a 2x12 cab so thats it 4ohms in total or at least what i have to change to achieve 4ohms.

cheers

You'll need to change the speakers...

i thought it was a case of changing capacitors and different wiring, cause if you wire two 8ohms in Parallel they become 4ohms the problem is i have no idea what i have to wire to make it parrallel or series.

Hmm you seem to know more than me. What I said shows the extent of my knowledge, so I'll sit back, read and learn Haha.

that's a good page for explaining.

series is added up and parallel splits it.

i dont have a picture tho sorry.

There are no capacitors in your cab. There are speakers and wire and a jack or two.
You'll need to know the impedance of the speakers to know if you can convert it to 2 ohm. Most cabs are wired in parallel, so you probably have two 16s wired for 8 ohms, in which case you won't be able to rewire for 4 ohms.
What cab is it? What's the impedance right now?

Is this just a guitar amp cabinet? There are no capcitors in these unless it has some sort of bandpass. There is no way to get a 8 ohm 2x12 into 4 ohms. You either have two 16 ohm speakers or two 4 ohm speakers. So you're choices with these would be 2 ohms, 8 ohms, or 32 ohms. You need two 8 ohm speakers or two 2 ohm speakers to get 4 ohms.
