||parallel vs. series/parallel|
I am considering replacing my four 32 ohm speakers that are wired in parallel (8 ohm total load) with four 8 ohm speakers wired in series/parallel (8 ohm total load)
The reason for the change is that 32 ohm speakers are a b**ch to find.
Would their be any sonic difference? Loudness? Tone? (I know that different speakers sound different but does the wiring affect anything?)

No difference in loudness, if each speaker sees the same voltages/currents, which they would. There will probably be a difference in tone since each speaker in a series setup "sees" the other speaker as series impedance, and is less damped by the amplifier, so the equivalent damping factor goes down, making for a looser bass.
