Speaker Cab Wiring......

Hello all,

I would like to ask if anyone has some thoughts to share on this issue.
I have a new cab, and i've never wired a cab before, and am looking to learn what i can. The issue is :

2 x 16 ohm speakers
3 x separate inputs ( one for each speaker, and one for both )

I don't know how to go about wiring this since i cannot find a diagram on this, and this idea of having your cab setup like this makes waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much sense to me.

I would also like to ask if any of you have some advice on speaker wire.
I am going to have to go out and get some this week, and i don't want to buy crap nor waste money on bull. I will probably have to get some mounting hardware as well come to think of it, and two amp to cab cables, since there will be two cabs from time to time.
So your thoughts on that would also be appreciated.

Thank you kindly for your time and thought.

Well, you'd probably need a shorting jack for running both speakers that shorted the circuit when nothing was plugged in, otherwise it'd be straight forward. Left jack to left speaker, right jack to right speaker, middle jack to both speakers in parallel. If you didn't use a shorting type jack for the middle position you'd just be in parallel all the time.

Another option is 2 using just two jacks. Mono when you use just one, stereo when you use both. Checkout this page and scroll down till you get to the "Mono/Stereo in same cabinet using Switchcraft 14B Stereo Jacks" part.
