Does the crossovers of two identical speakers connecting in series or parallel effect each others metrics? I know that the speakers ohms will change, double in series and half in parallel but will the two crossovers interfere with each others effectiveness?

I was thinking that if I had a set of good speakers made for small rooms and then moved into a larger room could I just get a second pair of them and put two speakers on each speaker out terminals in series or parallel. Provided of course that my receiver can handle the resulting ohm value.

I am not asking for my self, I am asking for a shy friend, you know the one that asked me to ask the school nurse why it hurt when I. . he pee.

If you aren't changing the drivers, just hooking up the speakers in different configurations you are fine.

I think UTI is urinary tract infection. Not to be confused with STD which is Stereo Time Deficiency and can only be suppressed by spending more time in your media/listening/HT room.

Adding a second pair of identical speakers in series won't get you any more SPL for an identical volume control setting, however, the speakers will each see half the power and are less likely to be overdriven or damaged. This can allow you to switch to a more powerful amp to get the extra output needed for the larger room. (Note: If the speakers have adjustable level settings for the midrange or treble, be sure to put them all to the same setting to share the power equally)

Adding a second pair in parallel will get you more SPL (up to 6 dB) at an identical volume control setting with the original amplifier, as long as it can supply the extra current needed for the reduced impedance load it will see.

Basically, for a given volume control setting, adding speakers in series won't change the perceived loudness, but adding speakers in parallel will.
