To hook up speakers, you just connect the speaker wires to the appropriate outlets on the a/v receiver before you plug and play, though, there are a few points to remember keep your speakers in phase each speaker wire consists of two conductors, a positive and a negative if you connect these out of phase (that is, the positive on the. Do some math to figure out how best to hook up the speakers for example, a lot of speaker cabinet makers will make an 8 ohm cab out of four 8 ohm speakers they do this by running two sets of two speakers in series, and then running those in parallel so in this example the two speakers in series would be 8+8 = 16 ohms. Example: you have two 8 ohm speakers you want to connect to an amplifier with an output impedance of 16 ohms for this case, you want to put your speakers in series, so the total impedance of the speakers will be 8+8=16 ohms, matching the amplifier. If you just connect speakers by twisting all the plus wires together and connect them to plus and do the same thing for minus, you could end up with a blown amplifier and it wont matter how many.
If the speakers do not have a common impedance, you can use formula 1 for two speakers or formula 2 for more than two speakers un-like impedances formula 1: speaker a=8ohms and speaker b=4ohms. A 2-way speaker switch and line output converter can allow you to hook up a second amp to a receiver and drive multiple pairs of speakers another option would be to connect the speaker switch box directly to your front left/right speaker outputs on the pioneer, but it's possible that the pioneer won't be able to drive 6 pairs of speakers. In other words, with a two channel system, when only speaker a is engaged, the amplifier sees a load which represents one pair of speakers when both a and b speaker outputs are engaged, the amplifier sees a parallel connection which would then show the amp approximatey half the impedance of the lower impedance speaker of the two pairs. Typically, a 2ohm capable amp can only handle that load in stereo mode, not bridged there are basically two ways to hook up multipule or dual voice coil speakers 1.
Could i hook up two receivers, each with their own source to the same speakers, and play one receiver, while the other is powered down now, if that is a no, is there a way for me to run and integrated and a receiver into the same speakers and play each one individually. A 2-way speaker switch and line output converter can allow you to hook up a second amp to a receiver and drive multiple pairs of speakers. Connect the rear channel rca cables to the amplifier powering the rear speakers, when using two separate front/rear amplifiers 3 connect the subwoofer channel rca cables to the corresponding rca in jacks for the amplifier powering the subwoofer, if applicable. So other than reduced power there is no reason why a 51 amp can't run with 10 speakers, two in series on each channel i would not run a 51 amp with two speakers in parallel as not many 51 amps can handle a 4 ohm load on all 5 channels at once but putting the two speakers in series actually helps the amp run cooler. Power amps,and speakers how do you hook up multiple amps to run 8 speakers on my pa system i have to power amps 1 is 2,500 watts and the othere is 900 watts i have a crate 16 channel mixer i want to run all 6 speakers using 2 power amps so i dont over load 1 power amp how do i hook it up so it works.
For this how-to, i’m going to use the dc audio 75k for the most part, “strapping” – aka ‘bridging’ – two amps together is done to get double the @1ohm power rating of one amp. Gently tug on the speaker wires to make sure the connections are snug step repeat the process to hook the wires up to the back of your amplifier step put your favorite chair in front of your new-found power blasters, crank them up to 11 and blow yourself away. There are two basic ways they are parallel or series either way will give you 4 speakers producing the exact same mono signal no stereo separation, no front and rear sepa ration in series, you would connect the positive amp output to the positive speaker terminal on speaker #1, and the negative amp output to the negative speaker terminal on speaker #4.
Don't connect two amps to one set of speakers, i tried it once and blew a channel on one of my amps the pre-out option is the way to go kit1cat , aug 30, 2009. How to connect a speaker selector from your receiver to multiple pairs of speakers to activate a set of connected speakers, you simply press a button on the front of the selector for the pair you want to activate. Re: two amps connected to same speakers actually, it may be possible to keep your yamaha and integrate a second amp into the system fairly easily i did a google searh on your reciever and the one review that i read indicated that the yamaha has pre-outs for adding a second and third zone.
The output required by the power amplifier is determined by the number of speakers connected and their impedance if the output from the amplifier exceeds the power rating of the speakers, the speakers could be damaged, so consider the amplifier-speaker combination before choosing the power amplifier. When your hooking up a home stereo or car audio, it is good to know how to wire multiple speakers together in order to get the best sound and performance from the amps and speakers, you need to figure what layout is best for your operations. Step multiply the impedance levels of the two left speakers divide this number by the number from step 3 if the quotient is within the limits of your amplifier, wire the speakers in parallel if it is not, you will not be able to use the speakers with your amplifier. Best answer: most amps expect to see 4 ohms of resistance minimum coming from the speakers doubling up on speakers halves the ohms, approximately so, if you hooked two 8 ohm speakers to the same amplifier terminal (2 wires to + and 2 wires to -) your amp would work fine.
