Hey, I am trying to wire 4, 8 ohlm speakers to a 4 ohlm load and was wondering if anybody knew the resistance formula to figgure this out ??? I know that two speakers with 8 ohlm coils can be wired in parallel to get 4 ohlms of resistance, but I don't know how to calculate the results of a 4 and 8 ohlm load wired in parallel.
Any help would be appreciated!!!

Hi Jeff.

The formula for resistors in parallel is:
1/Rtotal = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + ..... + 1/Rn.
