Series or Parallel speakers? Answered

Quick question guys. I have two speakers I extracted from a laptop, and I need to use them for an iPod. The loudness is the goal here. So what's best for the volume - attaching them in series or parallel? Does it make a difference? I don't have time to get an amplifier, for it's due tomorrow morning, and I didn't think about using speakers until this morning. Thanks!


Short answer: parallel should be louder!

That is in fact what I did. I couldn't tell too much from my testing (the speakers were plenty loud on their own), but I put them in parallel anyway.
