i got two 4 ohm sub's, what would the ohm's be, if wired in parallel and series?
thanks!

2 and 8 like above. To figure out impedances of speakers in parallel you need to do the product over the sum method:
i.e.- (4*4) / (4+4) = 16 / 8 = 2 ohms
To figure them out in series you just add them together
i.e.- 4 + 4 = 8 ohms
To figure out more just keep the method going. Say you wanted to do 3 4ohm subs in parallel.
i.e.- (4*4) / (4+4) = 16 / 8 = 2 ohms
Now add the next sub (assume 4 ohms):
(2*4) / (2+4) = 8 / 6 = 1.33 ohms
Now you can tell no matter what kind of speakers you get or use!

in parallel
1/r + 1/R = Equivalent resistance
in series
r+R= Equivalent resistance
where r and R are your two resistances (in ohms)
