I am new to the speaker building hobby and want to build a set of towers in a TMMWW format. I have been reading up on speaker impedance and have myself confounded.
My question is this... If I wire the Mid and Woofer circuits to each pull an 8 ohm load, (i.e. 2-4 ohm mids wired in series and wired into the Midrange circuit on the XO and 2-4 ohm woofers wired in series into the Woofer circuit on the XO) and then run an 8 ohm tweeter off of the tweeter circuit of the XO, will the resulting load presented to the amp be 8 ohms, since the tweeter, mid and woofer sections are seperated by the XO?
Any assistance in helping me to understand this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

If correctly done, the load will approximate 8 ohms. This is due to each leg (woofer, mid, tweeter) representing a relatively high impedance outside its passband.
