I'm assuming that when you wire speakers in series they look like a line with the positive wired to the negative and then the negative wired to the positive etc.
Groups in series where each one is connected to the others in parallel look like a ladder, right?
At the bottom of the ladder are the connections to the amp: one positive, and one negative. The rungs are the groups of series wired speakers.
Say that I need 2 four speaker groups. Each of these groups is wired in series. Then each of these groupshas to be wired together in parallel. Each of these 2 sets would be the rungs of the ladder.
My stupid question is: is the last rung, one of the two sets of 4 speakers in series, or do the sides of the ladder continue and connect with a solid wire effectively joining the positive and negative wires in one more rung above the speakers which is a solid wire, or does it not really matter?
