    Need some help wiring my bass shakers if anyone can help, this is what I am thinking of doing right now. I have a Sherwood 105x2 @ 8 ohm receiver. I would like to run 4 shakers off of each channel, and each shaker is 4 ohms and 25 watts max. So this is how I am thinking of doing the wiring to get the ohm level and watts correct per shaker. I am thinkin of making two series setups containing 2 shakers then these two series are brought together in a parallel connection that goes to the amp. If thats right it should take the 2 8 ohm series and make it 8 ohms to the reciever and sending 25 watts or so to each shaker?

    You will want to wire two shakers in series to an individual channel. You should have two sets of shakers each will provide an 8 ohm load. Do not wire the sets in parallel with each other or you will be showing a 4 ohm final load to the amp.
