How best to wire 10 ceiling speakers to amplifier?

Hi. I have ten Clarity S-522 (Valcom) ceiling speakers which I am trying to connect to an amplifier for office paging purposes. I'm not sure how to connect them all up. I was planning on having them all connected in one loop. Can someone give me help? I'm electronically challanged!

Many thanks,
Bob

    I guess you just wait long enough and you can find the answer yourself. Wow, no electronics experts on this site.... That's too bad.

    Don't waste your time on this site with electronics problems. Nobody here can offer advice on my simple request. I eventually found a way to wire my speakers on my own.

    Here are some factors you need to know before you continue 1) What kind of amplifier are you using? 2) Do you have a paging control unit? 3) How do you want to hook them up?

SOURCE: connecting speakers to receiver

These speakers are designed for use in an overhead paging or similar sitiuation. They require -26v DC power in addition to an audio signal. You can connect your own amplifier if you disconnect and bypass the one on the speaker. These are really marginal speakers for music, so it might be wiser to get someone to trade them for some that sound better.

How to hook up 2 10 inch speakers


For best results the output resistance of the amplifier must equal the combined resistance of the speakers. So if the amps says 8 ohms and you have two 4 ohm speakers you put them is series or if the amps says 4ohms and you have two 8 ohm speakers put them in series. If it says 4ohm and you have two 4 ohm speakers best to use only one. It Depends on the output resistance of the amps. It is usually written at the terminals where the speakers are connected.
