Did this video help you?

Nisiana Koufalis: how about if i run.......2 Speakers & 1 Sub  in 1 Amp........... all speakers and sub are 8 ohms....
Amp minimum load is 4 ohms......
what i want to do was connect 2Speaker in parallel......that would give me 4 ohms....to the right channel of the amp.........then plug the 8 ohm sub to the left channel...........does this work?

Alexis Schmidt: i have peavy 2600 amp. 2 jbl 15 eon and 1 peavy 18 sub cabinet i need to know how to wire these. thanks

rockdrummer1226: very helpfull. thanks so much.

patrickman123: -4 ohms i think

Ianb: Cant do it!!! i cant listen to you for 10 mins!

Adam Kurimski: I finally understand how that works now...1/(1/ohms+1/ohms+1/ohms...) -Adam

chris emanski: approx. 2.66 Ohms per side

Robert Crowston: i want to run to (1) 4 ohm sub and (1) 8 ohm top per side through one amp what ohm load is that? thanks rob!

Live Productions: One correction: Its actually better for you to bring your laptop volume to only about 75% max because otherwise, A. sometimes you will get more hiss through your system and B. it causes your peak on the gain to come on eariler. This is because the line level is very high and causes more distortion. Using the gain on the mixer is where you want to set your gain volume level.

DJ Mikey Mike Susca: Nice video good job A+++ Thanks DJ Mikey Mike

Adam Kurimski: There you go guys...it's coming from the man himself! -Adam

chris emanski: Great vid! Oh and adam, having (3) 8ohms speakers makes a 2.66 ohm load per side, you need 4-8ohm speakers to get it down to 2. Also, lower quality amps can most likely do 4-8 ohms in stereo and 8-16 in bridge mono. QSC, Peavey, Crown amps for example can do down to 2 in stereo and 4 in mono, easily! (in most cases) And altough not recommended, they can handle wierd loads (e.g. 2.66 ohms per side)

crazydevon007: 4 and 8 Ohm Speaker (in parallel) = 1 / (1/8 + 1/4 ) = 2.67 Ohm Load. Not recommended for most amplifiers. in series 12 ohms.

DJBoz07: thanks mate

crazydevon007: you would go mixer to active sub (assuming it has a full or high pass output) to amp to top cabs. just like in the video.

DJBoz07: could you hook things up like following? - DJ mixer > Amp > Active Sub > two L + R 15" PA Speakers? Basically how would I connect my mixer, amp, one sub and two 15" top cabs?? Cheers A C

djtavi77: we actually need more of this vids in you tube where we learn stuff not just tenminmixes, haha!!! THX a lot.

djtavi77: awesome!!! but even when your amp says it would support 2ohms, is not recommended to do it, cause it will work too hot, I've heard...

bodetyl: what does 4 ohm and 8 ohm make?

itsj1train: Good job, I thought it was helpfull. Keep it up. Things like this is what helps other djs here on youtube.
