Speaker Wiring Instructions

People often ask the difference between series and parallel when it comes to wiring speakers. If you are using two speakers its important that you understand the difference and use the correct method to avoid damaging your decoder.

Two 8 ohm speakers in parallel will give a 4 ohm load, which is ideal for Loksound and Zimo decoders. (Not suitable for the Loksound 3.5)

Two 4 ohm speakers in series will give an 8 ohm load making them suitable for TTS or 'Econami' decoders.
