    A friend had two pairs of speakers and just last week a speaker from each pair got broken, so he now has one from each pair working.
    Is it possible to just buy a new pair and connect them with the old two remaining speakers and will that work okay, or are the old two remaining not good anymore. someone adviced he needs two buy two new pairs.
    Any ideas.

    Thanks.

    If you are saying that these are similar speakers then there is no problem buying a new pair to replace the ones that got broken. If they are different speakers from different systems then it wouldn't be advisable to mix each speakers

    Think he had a pair of two different brands which he used on the same amp. at the moment has one speaker per brand left.
    he wants to just get a new pair to what is left so he still has 4 speakers as before.

    If you are talking about surround sound with one pair of speakers acting as the main speakers at the front and another pair acting as rear speakers it would be inadvisable to have mismatched pairs as they will sound different.

    If he bought another pair of the speakers that he used at the front at least he could have a matched pair there with the mismatched pair at the rear where it won't be quite so obvious.
