Wiring JBL tweeters

How would l wire 4 JBL 8ohm tweeters rated @100watts to a crown xti 1002 safely to the amp possible keeping the amp at 8 ohms or 4ohms?


  • Two 8Ω tweets in series make them 16Ω. Now wire the two pairs in parallel for a final 8Ω load.

  • Or wire two pairs in parallel, then the pairs in series. 4 Ohm + 4 Ohm = 8 Ohms seen by amp.
    This scheme allows you to still have the other 3 tweeters operating in case any one fails.

    The other wiring scheme means you lose 2 tweeters if any one fails.
