### What is 6ohm in amps?

Ohms is a measurement of resistance between the amp and speakers. Most home audio is 8 ohm, if you run 4 or 6 ohm speakers you cut resistance down and get more power out of the amp. Say your stereo is 100X2 @ 8ohm, if you use 4 ohm speakers you should get 50% more power BUT the amp is working twice as hard and can burn up.

### Is it better to run a 4 ohm speaker through a 8 ohm tube amp or a 16 ohm tube amp?

You'll have better luck with the 8ohm amp, but technically you could use either one just fine. The impedence numbers are really arbitrary. The resistance actually changes as the music plays, and is never really just a single number. Just make sure not to turn up the speakers loud enough to distort as this can damage both the amp and speakers.

### Can you safely use a 4 ohm amp with one 8 ohm speaker?

Yes, you can safely use a 4 ohm amp with one 8 ohm speaker, but you will not achieve full power. The 4 ohm amp is designed to supply a certain voltage into a 4 ohm speaker. Supplying that same voltage to an 8 ohm speaker will result in half the power, or -3dB. For maximum power, use a 4 ohm speaker, or two 8 ohm speakers in parallel.

### Can you use 4 ohms speakers on 2 ohm amplifier?

Yes, you can safely use a 2 ohm amp with one 4 ohm speaker, but you will not achieve full power. The 2 ohm amp is designed to supply a certain voltage into a 2 ohm speaker. Supplying that same voltage to an 4 ohm speaker will result in half the power, or -3dB. For maximum power, use a 2 ohm speaker, or two 4 ohm speakers in parallel.

### Can you connect 2 8 ohm speakers to a 4 ohm amp?

A1: The output impedance of a power amplifier is always less than 0.1 ohms. There are no 4 ohm amplifiers on the market! A2: I actually just bought a new car radio/CD player that specifically shows 4 ohm speakers on the sticker. It is designed to work optimally with 4 ohm speakers. If you use 8 ohm instead, it will work, but you will not get the full power output that is specified. The amp…

### Is better to work at 4 ohms or 8 ohms?

There is really no 4 ohm or 8 ohm amplifier on the market with an output impedance of 4 or 8 ohms for power matching. You will find there 0.4 ohm or less for voltage bridging. There is really no 4 ohm or 8 ohm amplifier on the market with an output impedance of 4 or 8 ohms for power matching. You will find there 0.4 ohm or less for voltage bridging.

### Can you use 10 ohm speakers with a 4-8 ohm receiver?

You can use your so called "4 to 8 Ohm's output" amplifier for your 10 ohms loudspeaker. All amplifiers have an output impedance of less than 0.5 ohms. You use impedance bridging when you connect the 10 ohm's loudspeaker. The "4 to 8 Ohm's output" means only that a 4 to 8 ohm loudspeaker will be adequate and not that the output impedance is 4 to 8 ohms! Scroll down to related links and look…

### Can resistance be added to speakers to make a 4 ohm speaker have an 8 ohm load?

You "can" add a four ohm resistor in series with a four ohm speaker, and make it look like an eight ohm speaker, however, the frequency response will not be the same. It is better to use to correct speaker for the amplifier, or use two four ohm speakers in parallel. That resistors power rating must exceed the rating of the speaker. Half the from the amplifier will go to the speaker, while half will…

### If an amp runs 1000 w rms at 1ohm how do you wire a dual 4 ohm speaker to run at 1 ohm?

the impedance of a speaker is a characteristic that is has. A 4 ohm speaker will always have a 4 ohm impedance and it cannot be changed. If 2 speakers of 4 ohm impedance are wired in parallel, then the total impedance will be 2 ohms. Similarly, if you wire 4 speakers together, the total impedance will be 1 ohm. Wiring a 2 ohm speaker to an amplifier rated to drive a 1 ohm load…

### How do you wire dvc 4 ohm sub to 4 ohm amp?

There is really no amplifier on the market which has an output impedance of 4 ohms. The impedance of an amplifier is always less than 0.5 ohms. We do not use matching, we use bridging when we connect the amplifier to the loudspeaker. Scroll down to related links and look at "Interconnection of two audio units".

### Will 4 ohm sub work with a 2 ohm amp?

Yes, a 4 ohm subwoofer will work on a 2 ohm amplifier, but you will not be able to develop full rated power. The amplifier is designed to deliver a certain power. That translates to a certain voltage and a certain current, into a certain load. If you change the load, in this case from 2 ohms to 4 ohms, the voltage and current ratings of the amplifier will not match the power rating. It…

### Can a 8 ohm amp power a 4 ohm speaker?

It can power it, but you will most likely end up frying your amp. Ohms are a measure of resistance. if you connect a speaker that has less resistance than the amp is designed for, you will end up destroying your amp. a 4 ohm amp will power an 8 ohm speaker fine, but an 8 ohm amp will not do well connected to a 4 ohm speaker. an easy fix for this would be…
