There are a number of methods to wire up Audio system, the commonest strategies are Sequence and Parallel that are mentioned right here. It’s also fairly widespread to wire Audio system in a Sequence/Parallel Mixture.

Wiring up Audio system accurately to offer the very best sound, requires some information of Loading, Section, and Impedance, whereas understanding Ohms Legislation will aid you to attach your audio system correctly.

Though we talk about right here two methods to wiring Audio system – Sequence and Parallel , we should always point out Sequence/ Parallel Mixture, so we’ve included a diagram exhibiting this configuration.


The Amplifier sends an audio sign (+) out via the (+) Speaker output into the primary Speaker; then the sign is shipped from the primary Speaker’s (+) and so forth till the circuit is full with the (-) of the final speaker is related the Amplifier’s (-) connection.

Including Audio system in sequence will increase the general resistance of the circuit.

Subsequently the resistance of every Speaker is added collectively, For superior installations with A number of Audio system, Sequence Speaker wiring can be utilized to extend the resistance of the “equal” or “general” resistance that the Amplifier sees. This enables the Amplifier to run cooler and extra effectively.

Sequence Circuits are “voltage dividers”, and utilizing Ohms Legislation, one sees the end result as a lower in amplified voltage audio sign to every Speaker. Since Sequence Circuits are “voltage dividers” every Speaker sees a share of the amplified output from the Amplifier.

It’s usually assumed the Amplifier is producing much less output, however it nonetheless produces the identical output, as a result of every Speaker solely will get a share of the general energy.

4 Ohm Audio system (in contrast to Audio system at 8 ohms of resistance) maintain the “general” resistance on the Amplifier at or close to 4 ohms.

Nonetheless, rising the resistance to greater than 4 ohms of speaker resistance by including Audio system in Sequence, will cut up the amplified audio output from the Amplifier throughout all of the Audio system within the circuit.

The formular for Sequence Wiring is: Znet=Z1+Z2+Z3….


Parallel circuits are the best electrical circuit to wire.

Including Audio system in parallel decreases the general resistance of the circuit

Parallel Speaker Wiring combines all Audio system (+) optimistic Speaker leads collectively, and all (-) adverse Speaker leads collectively. Parallel Circuits are the best to wire as a result of including a Speaker is as straightforward as connecting the brand new Audio system (+) optimistic result in the (+) Speaker wires of the opposite Audio system and the (-) adverse result in the (-) connection of the opposite Audio system.

Including further Audio system is as straightforward, nonetheless, including Audio system in Parallel causes the general resistance of the circuit to drop, as resistance drops, the present should enhance in response to Ohms Legislation.

So, every time a Speaker with the identical resistance is added to the parallel circuit, the present draw on the amp will increase. The circuitry of the amp should be capable of deal with this enhance in present on the decreased resistance.

The formulation for Parallel Wiring is:

parallel wiring formula

When n is the variety of Parts

Notice: If greater than 2 Audio system are related in Parallel, as long as they’re all the identical impedance then the web impedance of the load is the same as the impedance of the one Speaker divided by the full variety of Audio system.

For Instance:

Three 8 Ohm Audio system in Parallel, the Impedance is 8/3 or 2.667 Ohms.


In actuality that is simply two units of Sequence Audio system wired in Parallel

8 ohm speakers wired in series
