Will my 2 speakers both 140W blow with a 450W amplifier?
Yes, most likely. If your speakers are rated for 140w each then it's possible to blow them if your amp drives em at full power. If you do hook them up then find a way to limit the volume or output of your amp. Sophisticated amps and stereos have settings that allow you to do this.
It's entirely possible to use four 70W speakers with a 150W amplifier but the method will depend on the speakers and the amplifier specification. We will assume that the amplifier will deliver up to 150W per channel, so two speakers will be used on each channel. If the amplifier is rated to drive a 4 ohm load, then two 8 ohm speakers can be wired in parallel and connected. In this instance, take care NOT… Read More
You get more power by wiring the speakers in parallel, but you need to verify that the amplifier can handle that configuration or you may blow the amp. Read More
You need to make sure the impedance matches or you will blow you amplifier! It would be best to replace it with the same brand as the speakers, feed it with a digital cable. There won't be a problem of overloading your amplifier. Read More
Years ago all we had was tube amplifiers. As long as its a bass amp (so you don't blow out the speakers) there is no problem. Read More
You may have 1500 watts output but the speakers will only dissipate 30watts each the answer yes they will work fine as long as you do not increase the level whereby the speakers will have to dissipate 1500 watts because they will blow open with the extra output demand. Read More
If you have a mic and speakers and sound comes out of the speakers and that is picked up by the mic and fed in to the speakers again and amplified by the amplifier comes out of the speaker again and picked up by the mic the process repeat its self over and over again and that whats makes the screacing noise that is feedback and it can blow your speakers up.

Can you plug an amplifier in to an LCD TV via the headphone port on the LCD. will it blow. i have a jvc amplifier with two Bose speakers i want to use them on the LCD?
Plug the audio system into the AUDIO OUTPUT jacks on the LCD. Go into the menu and change the signal to the jacks to FIXED if you can. Read More

Technically, yes. Practically, no. Amplifiers and speakers are rated by the maximum amount of power (and at what impedance) they can handle. A 1200 watt amplifier will eventually destroy a 1000 watt speaker if it is operated at maximum power. In normal use, however, you rarely even get close to maximum rating. Read More
Probably not. You will either blow a fuse or blow your speakers before you do any damage to the electrical system in your car. Read More
You can it will be safe and no damage will result. However it will blow sooner than the intended fuse would, so the amplifier will no longer have its full normal operating range. Read More
You will get lower output and the amplifier will still work fine. Read More
They probably don't blow out anymore than any other speakers. It all depends on how you take care of them and how much wear and tear you put into them. Read More
no, as long as the wattage of the speakers are compatible withe the head unit.e.g speakers 200 watts head unit below 200 ,or else you may blow speakers. Read More
Check the amplifier used for the subwoofers. Most amplifiers have a 'protect' light that will light up if the subs are wired wrong, if the power wire or ground isn't sufficient, if the amplifier overheats, or if the amplifier is blown. Check your ground wire to see if it has come loose, a simple self tapping screw isn't sufficient to hold the ground lug in place. Also check the wiring for the subwoofers, if spade… Read More
Yes - you can use them. But you will not get the sound quality that you will out of matched speakers. Also, you could blow the speakers if you try to "crank it up". Read More
There are only two ways a speaker can blow. THERMAL DAMAGE - a few examples: - Too much power applied long term. - amplifier ran into clipping (distortion, amplifier trying to produce more power than it can) - problematic amplifier producing DC voltage at it outputs MECHANICAL DAMAGE - a few examples: - too much peak power - driver over excursion (the coil can hit the back magnet structure and smash itself or tear the… Read More
How easy is it to blow internal laptop speakers They're Altec Lansing and I was watching a movie and it kept screeching loud. I was wondering if those loud screeches are enough to damage my speakers?
Not very easy to blow must have equipment flaws Read More
no you dont There are a couple of options. you can buy a 2 chanel with 400W rms per chanel, or a mono at 800w. make sure you match the ohms of you speakers with you amp. If your amp is 800w rms at 2ohm, it's 400w rms at 4 ohms. So if your speakers are 4 ohms, they wouldn't be getting the power they need. And remember you can blow speakers by under powering… Read More
Hi, if you amp up you factory car speakers you could blow them up because in most vehicles that Ive owned, they are less than 100 watts unless they are concert sound, then they might be able to be amped but the concert sound ones are already amp just like you stock ones (which are perfectly amp for that speaker). So technically i would not amp them unless you want to replace them with aftermarket… Read More
If this means you are using a guitar amplifier to power an electric bass, stop this immediately. Guitar amps are not designed to handle the low register of a bass, and you can blow out your speakers. If this means you are using a guitar amplifier to power a guitar, but want a more bass-like tone, turn down the mids and highs and turn up the lows on your EQ. That should do the trick. Read More
Most factory speakers are any any where from 10 - 25 watts RMS. I wouldn't put factory speakers on an amp unless you want to blow them. Read More
Possibly, if you turn the volume up, but not necessarily. You should attempt to match impedance (your amplifier is designed to have specific speaker impedances connected, if these are not connected it will not deliver full power). Read More
it depends on what you like. i personaly like blow your speakers Read More
Car speakers can become fuzzy for several reasons, including the speaker being blow. Poor radio reception can also cause them to become fuzzy. Read More
Most of the time, the drivers (the actual speakers) don't actually blow out. However, the cord connecting them to the device malfunctions, thus making the earbuds stop producing sound. Read More
If you have an old Pioneer SA-540 200w amplifier will it damage newer speakers 100w sony and Wharfdale 4-8 and 8 ohms respectively?
It's not a 200 watt amp, that's the total mains power consumption, when the switched mains output sockets are loaded up with a radio, tape etc. You would probably blow the speakers if you had the bass full and loudness on, at full whack. It's a very good, very loud and bassy amp, I think it's well built and indestructable. Read More
Will your speakers blow if your receiver is 160 watts per channel but your speakers are only 130 watts each?
Honestly, it depends on the durabuility of the speaker. Most likely not, but I would definetly not take the chance! Soory Read More
Don't do it. Period. You will overheat the wires , blow the board and start a fire within seconds. I assume you're talking about the pre amp and the amplifier. Most sound systems run their own power supplies to the speakers. Do this instead. Check the Bose speakers and see if they have a voltage differential switch, some do especially if you're in Europe or the UK. If they do not and you are in… Read More
In most cases, the speakers should be able to handle more watts than the amp can deliver. Doing it the other way around will blow out the speakers. Read More
If both front speakers are not working, then either the fade control is set to rear speakers only, or the front speaker plug has fallen out - very unlikely. Check the fade control, first. Or, I suppose a particularly loud blast of music could blow both speakers at once . . . Read More
as close to the battery as possible, that way if the power cable shorts on the frame somewhere, it will blow the fuse, if it was near the amp, it would not blow the fuse, and the cable could possibly start burning!!!! Read More
you are exeeding the factory amp and speaker ratings... its so you dont fry the sterio or blow the speakers Read More
Yes, I blew mine out after one night. For the price you can get much better headphones. -cheers. Read More
Yes, it's called a Transformer. Definitely the wrong answer. DC on a transformer is certainly going to blow it up. The answer is yes unless capacitor coupling is involved Read More
FIRST VERIFY THAT THERE ARE REALLY SPEAKERS THERE, MINE JUST HAS GRILL AND NO SPEAKERS, I BELIEVE BOSE SYSTEM DOES NOT HAVE SPEAKERS THERE. IF YOU DID WANT TO GET TO THEM, YOU WOULD NEED TO REMOVE ALMOST THE WHOLE DASH TO GET TO THEM. MY GRILLS WERE NOT REMOVABLE FROM THE TOP. I HAVE REMOVED THE WHOLE DASH DOWN TO THAT POINT. DONT DO IT. IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND HOW MUCH YOU HAVE… Read More
Your speakers will blow out. A guitar amp is not meant to handle the low register of a bass. Even on a practice amp. Read More
turn it up until they distort...do not turn it up(wattage) past their distortion level or you'll blow 'em :) Read More
The "Plus" (+) of the speaker cabinet is wired to the Plus side of the amplifier. Most speakers have red (+) and black (-) terminals. The Negative wire (also known as "minus", "-", Common, or COM) goes to the the other connector. Red and black should be quite common to you if you've ever jump started your car. That's how you hook it up. Easy - right? But that's not all you need to know… Read More

How would you connect 1- 4 ohm 40 watt speaker and 1- 6 ohm 35 watt speaker to left output of an AV receiver with 8 ohm and 110 watt output. Same combo for right output?
The 2- 4 ohm speakers can be hooked up in series to make 8 ohms. you cant hook up the 2- 6 ohm, cause if you put them in series, you have 12 ohms. If you put them in , parallel you have 3 ohms out from av to +(4ohms), -(4ohms) to +(4ohms), -(4ohms) to - av. And do the math 4ohms plus 4ohms equals 8ohms. doing the math on the 2- 6ohm speakers... 6ohms… Read More
Yes, but the amp is too powerful and if turned up to full volume will blow the speakers. Read More
A couple of weeks ago all the right side speakers as well as the left rear speakers in this 04 neon stopped working any suggestions on what it could be?
could be faulty wiring, bad fuses, or something could have grounded out...unless you just happened to blow all them at the same time, but as you know, this is very unlikely. Read More
What you need is a Speaker Wire to RCA converter. You can find one at about any car audio store, I.E. Best Buy, or any car audio place. They can run from 25-30 but you may be able to find a budget model if you look long enough. What is does is converts the signal from your Deck to a signal the Amplifier can understand. You just connect your RCA cables to the converter and… Read More
You always want to buy speakers rated higher than the max RMS output of the amp. I've blown plenty of speakers in my day as soon as I turned it on. Ohms is just as important. Never connect two or more speakers in parallel. This cuts the ohms to less than half and you will blow the amp if its not designed for it . You can connect speakers in series if you like but… Read More
Your amp's got enough power there to blow those speakers to kingdom come, but that doesn't mean you can't use them. At low volume settings, you're nowhere near the maximum output of the amp, so use them, but be careful. You should be able to hear when you're overdriving them. Read More
It shouldn't, but if it does it's probably an older model. If it's not that old but has had alot of use, some of the capacitors might be going bad. Take it to a tech before you blow a speaker. Read More
That will depend on the subs power rating, and how they're wired. Since I don't know which model subs you have, I can only give you an example and not a definite answer. Let's assume that your subs are rated at 100W RMS @ 4 ohms. If you hook them up in series, you will then need an amp capable of delivering a minimum of 200W RMS @ 8 ohms. (more would be better, say… Read More
