What Is a Dual Voice Coil Speaker?
A Dual Voice Coil (DVC) speaker uses a special voice coil cone design that allows both channels of a stereo system to drive one cone. Sound complicated? It's not. Basically a DVC speaker plays both right and left channels through one speaker cone. You get both channels but without the acoustic separation that happens with two speakers. DVC speakers are great space savers and customers love them for bathrooms, hallways, small patios, etc. They're also great for outdoor areas where stereo separation is not always a big concern.

The 16/8 ohm switch allows you to use the speaker as a single point source Stereo speaker when you need only one speaker but have a stereo signal coming into the zone/room. The switch is set to 16 ohms when you are connecting both voice coils (there is an input for right +/- and left +/-). The second option allows you to connect two AP-650 speakers as a stereo pair. In this application you connect only one voice coil of each speaker and set the 16/8 ohm switch to 8 ohm. In this case both tweeters still play which in essence doubles your tweeters providing additional coverage in the zone/room versus a standard pair of 6.5 inch 2-way speakers. See attached images showing diagram for 16 or 8 ohm connection.
