well based on the knowledge i have acquired in this thread i decided to try connecting 2 pairs of 8 ohm speakers (now 16 ohm per side, or is it 4 ohms? +ve and -ve on each speaker pair joined)) to my already confused x-over and amp.

if my thinking is correct that would give me the steeper and lower cut off on the sub with a higher/shallower cut on the speakers?

(at 16 0hms, and shallower and lower at 4 ohms) ?

so instead of getting everything from 150hz and up, the speakers now get everything from about 300 hz and with a bit more volume??

or 75hz with less volume if its 4 ohms per side?

and i have a nice gap from 'about' 100-300hz (or 100-75) with an overlap??

lol, im not sure?,

i am listening to it now, seems *smoother* then with just 1 pair of speakers?,

i can hear something different, im not certain what i am/am not hearing tho

im am having fun .....

is it *illegal* to wire speakers in series?
