    Hey guys, I'm currently running the stock wiring setup with 3x10" speakers (8 ohms each) wired in parallel for ~2.6 ohms and using the 4 ohm output from the amp. From what I've read, it's possible to replace one of the speakers with a 16 ohm and then wire the two 8 ohm speakers in series and the 16 ohm in parallel to get 8 ohms so I can use the 8 ohm output. If this can be done, does anyone have a schematic for it?? Much appreciated...

    There's an 8 ohm output? Is it a clone?
    Anyway, it's fairly easy, but some speakers will have more volume than other speakers like that.

    Yup it's a Ceriatone clone with a 4 and 8 ohm output. I know that one speaker will get more power than the other two. Just wanted to try it and see how it sounds. I currently have three AlNiCo speakers and I want to replace one with a ceramic.
