30 - Easy to do wire-up to give you wacky 3D speaker system

OK dudes it's time fer the old 3D speaker tingy.....This was shown to me by a guy who said originaly it came from the back of an old Brian Eno album.
I wondered if it was ok for the amp impedence wise an stuff, but he said that there was no prob's with his system, and he had once even wired up a 3K rig at a warehouse gig in this fashion, an it had been just fine. The guy had his system wired like that permanently, and in all the time I used to go round there it never had a problem.

It's kind of hard to explain what it sounds like, so you'd best try it an see. You get sounds movin around behind an in front of you and stuff like that.


Wire up the Left & Right stereo speakers normally, in phase......That is :

  • (L+ amp to L+speaker)......( L- amp to L - speaker ) ......
  • ( R + amp to R + speaker).....(R - amp to R - speaker).......

Then wire up the third Center speaker like this :

  • ( L or R + amp to Center speaker +)......
  • ( L or R + amp to Center speaker - ).......
Let's make sure you got that.....That is wire either Left or Right positive terminal on the amp to the center speaker positive terminal.............and wire either the Left or Right (opposite of the other side) positive terminal on the amp, to the center speaker negative terminal........

You should place the third speaker in front or behind the Stereo pair.....So if you sit with the pair in front of you, put the 3rd speaker behind you, or have them in a triangle with you somewhere in the middle......Enjoy....!!
