    I have a 15 ohm and a 8 ohm version of the Celestion G1265 spkr.
    I want to put them both into my 212 Two Rock cab to run with my Fuchs ODSLX100 head. Serial or parallel wiring? And if so, what ohm speaker out do I use on the head to hook to the cab?

    :confused:

    Parallel and set it for 16 ohms. Wait for a second opinion. ;)

    Low into high will fly; high into low won't go?

    In Parallel the speaker load will be 5.2 ohms, in series 23ohms. I would wire in parallel.

    It is a much better idea to have 2 speakers of the same impedance

    So,
    I could wire them in parallel, and go into the 8ohm speaker out from the Fuchs?
    If that doesnt work, my only option would be to run the g1265 with a TR1265 (one is 15 ohm, and one is 16ohm)...essentially making it an 8ohm cab in parallel.
    Guess I'm in the market for another 15 ohm G1265.
    Anybody wanna trade a G1265 for one of my TR1265's?

    8 ohm output into 5.2 ohms is close enough. The problem is that one speaker is going to take 2/3 of the output, which maybe tend to overload it a bit? Running the 2 15 ohm speakers in parallel would work better...
