OK, so I always experiment in my studio. Six amps, multiple speaker cabs, but I have a new question and need help. Most of my amps are 8 Ω output, but some have ext speaker jack in which they convert to 16 ohm when you plug in the ext.
For example, with my Black Magick, I'll often blend the stock speaker with a 57 (highly inefficient) Jensen 10" 8 Ω. It gives me a blend of the clear "sparkle" of the stock speaker and a very satisfying saturated speaker OD on the 10.
Recently- I found 4 of these 8 Ω cletron 6X9, 8 Ω speakers wired in parallel in a case from a 67 B-3 type organ in series, so I think that's 32 Ω impedence. I've heard from other guitarists that these speakers are superb for recording to get the early Joe Walsh/James Gang OD. How would I rewire these speakers to experiment w/o hurting any of my 8 Ω amps?
OK guys, Gator here. I took the diagram that Tetsujin used in his answer. I wired the speakers accordingly (each pair of speakers wired in series, then wired the two pairs in parallel). I tested the 2 output wires for resistance/impedence before I hooked them to a jack-- the meter showed almost exactly 8.1 ohms. I plugged and played with several 8 ohm amps and they sound great. And now I'm not worried about hurting an amp. I was surprised how much air they moved. There was no indication of the max output anywhere on these speakers, but they are really clear with more bass response than I would have expected. In addition, around 7-8 on a 25 watt amp, they sound fantastic with just the right amount of breakup. Thanks, for all the help from you guys. -- Gator
