I'm pretty sure that in that scenario, each speaker would see exactly 1/4 of the power presented to it, provided that all speakers were of like impedance.jimboyogi wrote:Is this a good place for information on power sharing in a multi-speaker array? If you have 4 speakers wired in 2 series pairs, then each pair paralleled, what proportion of the total power does each speaker see?
Whether in series or parallel, speakers will share power evenly among themselves.
Speakers in parallel are like two lamps plugged into the same electrical outlet or power strip. Speakers in series are like a string of Christmas lights.
In either case, all lamps light equally. The main difference is that in the series scenario, if one lamp (or speaker) burns out, it kills the whole array.
