Default Need help wiring DVC AE Dipole 15

I have a pair of AE Dipole 15 (-8) mounted in a u-frame and am ready to try them out for the first time, but I'm not confident I know all the possible wiring scenarios and the results each would net. Each vc measures 6.3 ohm.

If I wire one channel of the amp to either of one set of terminals (one vc) that would get me 6.3 ohm at the amp...correct?

If I wire the two vc's together in series (+ of one vc to - of other vc) and wire one channel of the amp to either of the two vc's that would get me 12.6 ohm...correct?

If I wire the two vc's together in parallel (+/- of one vc to +/- of other vc) and wire one channel of the amplifier to either of the two vc's that would get me 3.15 ohm...correct?

And I don't know why, but I have myself convinced that I read somewhere the Dipole 15's shouldn't be operated on just a single vc. Could that be possible?

More than just the impedance changes depending on how they are wired.

Look here question about DVC drivers T/S parameters [Archive] - Techtalk Speaker Building, Audio, Video Discussion Forum

And here AE Speakers Dipole 15 or LO15 ? Need advice

And also here Acoustic Elegance • View topic - RE: Dipole 15 Specs. & 8ohms

Hopefully someone with much greater knowledge than myself will chime in.

Best of luck,
Dave
