Wiring speakers to a twin

Wiring speakers to a twin

Postby Counterstriker » Mon Dec 19, 2011 8:18 pm

I'm selling my fender twin and I need to put the speakers back into the amp itself, problem is I really forget how it was wired, I have the wires, but they aren't colored.. (I have to get new ones made because i lost my old speaker cables) How do you wire the speakers in a twin? Pictures help a lot! :smile:

The tip of the jack is positive. Positive wire goes to both positive terminals and the barrel to negative... This puts two 8 ohm speakers in parallel and is a 4 ohm lad which is what the stock twin OT looks for. If you have JBL's, the are likely wired backwards with positive as a black terminal.
