Default Piezo help

I am messing around with line array using piezo's.I am a little slow on wiring.After reading posts and trying to understand as its easier in drawing form I came up with this.Am I even close?From the cts website I have the values but need help with putting it in layman's terms.I only need 1 per woofer but for asthetics I want 2,to get woofer line and tweeter line close in size.Thanks

Hi Shawn,

I have moved this to loudspeakers.

Best I can tell, you have paralleled the tweeters with them out of phase.

Also, the higher the frequency, the harder it is to integrate multiple units. See if you can get away with just one.
