anyone have a diagram on how the 16 woofer/24 tweeter array is wired to get a 8 ohm load?

Try this...its from the power tapering thread thats currently going

You maintain a nice ~8 load, but you lower the output to the outer drivers. So the two at the top would be in the middle drivers, then next 4 down would be two on either side of the first two, and the 3 on either side of those last 4.


Click the image to open in full size.

PS: This could be used for 6 drivers, 12 drivers, 20 drivers, and number in between. The intial two set the majority of the curve though.

For example if all driver were 8 ohms in the above picture, you would get a 8.7 ohm load. If you took out the 3rd row, leaving 6 you would get a 10.7 ohm load. If you changed them to 4 ohm drivers you would get 4.4 ohms and 5.3 ohms respectfully.

Yes, not the first row though. It won't affect the ohms very much...maybe go to 9 or something.
