I picked up a pair of two way speakers rated at 2 ohms. They're wired in parallel with either a resistor or capacitor in the tweeter circuit.

I would like to separate the wiring or run in series to increase the ohms. How do I determine what this little thing in the tweeter wiring is doing?

I don't think you can change the wiring inside, you will mess up the crossover.


can't you just wire them in series without taking them apart? positive from amp into first speaker positive, first speaker negative to second speaker positive, second speaker negative to amp negative.

If the tweeter is of a piezo type-then it is probably a resistor.


if it is of the voice coil type then it would be a capacitor.


i would not mess with it.

The speakers are sold through Harley Davidson. They're called Boom Audio High Performance Apparently, they are for a specific Harmon / Kardon audio system. Thanks for your time. It's becoming obvious that these are quite specific and for only this type system.
