As some of you may know, the AC30 CC2 (2x12 combos) come with the speakers hardwired into the chassis. This makes it difficult to do simple tasks like change the tubes, as on AC30s, you must remove the chassis to get at all the tubes. I have a stock 2x12 with Alnico Blues. I'm considering wiring mine so that you can either plug the speakers into the amp itself, via a new 1/4" female jack, or put an attenuator in between amp and speakers. The manual doesn't clearly state that the internal speakers are 8 ohms ea, wired in series, but this is implied on page 8: So, while the two internal speakers appear to be wired in parallel, I'm guessing that they're actually 8 ohm speakers wired internally in series for a 16 ohm load. QUESTION 1: Can someone confirm this? [Of course, you could confirm this by unsoldering one and measuring it with a meter...but sheesh...I'm lazy... ) Mine is currently stock and has two pairs of leads coming from inside the chasis, one pair to each speaker. One speaker gets a Red (pos) and Yellow (neg) lead the other speaker gets a White (pos) and Black (neg) lead. I was thinking of rewiring it like this. I'll make a small wooden box which I'll screw into the bottom of the wooden support under the chasis. That box will contain a 1/4" female jack. I'll wire the leads from the amp to its tip (pos) and ring (neg). Then I'll wire the two speakers in series with some new speaker cable. The ends will be wired to a 1/4" male jack that will be long enough to reach the back of the hotplate; but I'll be able to plug them into either the new 1/4" female in the box, or to the hotplate. When using the hotplate, I'll then use a separate speaker able to go from the hotplate back to the new 1/4" female. My main concern is how to wire the current leads from the amp to the female jack (in the box...so to speak ). I guess one way is to use both leads. I'd wire both positive leads to the positive side of the jack and both negative leads to the negative side. That's (sort of) how they're attached to the speakers currently. I was also thinking I should be able to take just the red lead (pos) from the left speaker and the black lead (neg) from the left speaker and solder them to the female jack. The other two leads could be folded up and taped off and out of the way (and not touching). QUESTION 2: What do you think it is the best way to wire the female jack?
