Electrical knowledge, was Another ~1960 computer kit

Assuming the speakers are identical, then, in parallel, the resistance of
the circuit is halved, while in series, the resistance is doubled. This
that for series, the volume of the sound which is produced by the speakers
is halved, and doubled for the parallel case. I am neither an electrical
an electronic engineer but, Ohm's law is sufficient for this analysis.
