Help! Rewiring a 4x10 cab!!!

I've got a hartke 410tb transporter bass cab. With 4X10 speeakers. Recently all the wires and the input got ripped out of the back of it(long story). I'm not sure how to rewire it. Could some one pleasse tell me? I need it back working for the weekend for a gig. And also what exactly do i ask for when buying a new input and wires and stuff. I don't know to much about it, but any help would be very greatflull.

You should probably take it to a technician - or at least some old HI-fi nut.

It's _*probably*_ set up as a series-parrallel cabinet so that the amp sees the same charatreistic impedance as one driver, but is driving 4 of them.

Check the amp that you're using to drive it. It should recommend a load (speaker) impedance; either on the back near the output jack or in the manual. Also check the impedance of each speaker seperately. That's equally important for wiring up. If you can find that, we can help.

OK, I found your cab at:

It is an 8 ohm load. Assuming the speakers are also 8 ohms each, this wiring should get you going.
