    Icon33 What would the ohms be???

    What would the ohm load be if i have 3 4ohm subs, what would the impedance be if wired into Parallel, I Know if series it would be 12ohm, but is there anywhere that has diagrams for wiring>

    Thanks

    series = resistance adds 4 + 4 + 4 = 12

    parallel = resistance adds inversely 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 = 1/Rtotal = (1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4) = 3/4 inverse of 3/4 = 4/3 = 1.3333333333333333(or a 3 "bar")
