    There is a page that has a wiring diagram to show series vs. parallel wiring. Can someone point me to the link?

    Thanks

    Be forewarned that series wiring presents a completely different load on an amplifier and is not the usually recommended way to wire speakers. Just an FYI. Good luck.

    Thanks guys

    Im just wiring up some bass shakers, and am using a old sony receiver to power 4 shakers.

    I went from the + on the receiver to the + on a shaker then from the - on the same shaker went to the + on the next shaker and from the - of the 2nd shaker back to the - on the receiver. Repeated this for the other 2 shakers

    If you wire them in a series parralel configuration, they will present the same load on the amp as one bass shaker would.

    Wire two pairs of shakers in parallel, then wire those 2 pairs in series.
