so, i have my new amp, a peavey classic 20, and i have my homemade cab, trouble is, the extension speaker outlet on the peavey says 16 ohm minimum load and my cabs speaker is rated at 8 ohms.

now i dont want to spend a whole bunch of money on a fancy pants 16 ohm expensive speaker, but i CAN easily come by another 8 ohm speaker, and i was just wondering, would it work if connected in series?

8 ohm+8 ohm in PARALLEL=4 ohm?
8 ohm+8 ohm in SERIES=16 ohm?

Somebody please confirm this, because i dont want to blow up my new peavey ^^

ok thanks heaps guys, ummm one more thing, does it matter if the power rating on the speakers is different? say, one is 40 watts RMS and ones 60? im only running a 15 watt amp through it, this isnt bad right?

you should be fine, as long as the speakers can handle more then the amp, and the resistance of the speakers match up.

Still planning. My bag of clay dried into a brick... It'll take awhile to soften it up. I will soak it in water for a few hours or days, then let it dry a little so it isn't all squishy.
