Hooking up 2 speakers to 1 speakon output

My problem is I own a crown 402 amp it has one speakon output. I was wondering how to hook up 2 speakers with 1 speakon output? do you just run a 1/4 cable from 1 speaker to the other and 1 speakon from the amp to 1 speaker?

Want to wire a female speakon connector in a plate with 1/4 connector on other end to plug into a rack mounted amp. Plugging onto speaker.

Just so I understand what you are trying to do; you have a power amp that has 1/4" phone output and want to make up a cable of x length to plug into a SpeakOn(c) connector on a speaker. Correct?

CROWN CE1000- slips into fault immediately after connection

if ur output power amp is defective u will have that problem - meaning the moment u connect load across it it will go into circuit protection to limit/stop excessive output current. make sure the speaker terminals are connected to +/- output terminals. in bridge mode use only channel 1 and that too with 4 ohms speaker only otherwise amp will clip. considering all connections are okay if it still clips when speaker is connected, u have a faulty power amp section. this the way ur amp is designed

3 8 ohm speakers 1 stereo amp 2channel a 1 channel b will this do dammage

If you only have 3 (8 Ohm) Speakers and want to hook them all up, you will need to balance the impedance of the sides or you will be too loud on one side and not loud enough on the other. This will cause your amp to work harder on one side. (Not Good)
I did not see the speaker A and B in the instruction manual.

Because of that, I will state the following.
I would not recommend that you hook up anything that is unbalanced. I would use just a pair in two channel mode (This would give you an 8 Ohm load on each output). The manufacture recommends a 4 Ohm load for the best output of this amp. But the most important thing to remember is that your speakers must be able to handle this much power or the speakers will be permanently damaged.
This amp has Protection to cover: Full short circuits, Open Circuits, Thermal and HF protection, and stable into reactive or mismatched loads.

You could hook up all three speakers and the amp will work, but, I would not recommend that type of hook-up.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Crown Amp Possibly Blown??

Hi, probably worth fixing, Crown gear is generally reliable, but this one has failed for some reason. Puffs of smoke are not generally good... If it has blown an output array, expect a costly repair.

Hooking up speakers to amp

YES ! This is usually ok, the speaker cabinet should contain a high pass filter or crossover on the tweeter to decouple it from the low frequency signals. My Linn Index speakers are wired like this.
