    A pair of 8 ohm speakers, and a pair of 4 ohm speakers are wired in series. What is the ohm load felt by the amplifier? I know that two 8 ohm speakers in series would be 4 ohm.

    I currently have a 7 channel Polk Audio LSI setup powered by a sunfire TGA 7201. I have been drooling over the new lsim and have ordered a pair of 705's and 706c in cherry.

  5. 4 ohm bridged or 8 ohm "stereo"

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi all, I am working on an infinite baffle setup with the Behringer EP4000 and 4 FI-IB3 18" sub woofers. The subs are 4 ohm single voice coil. The original plan was to run them bridged at 4 ohms. I know that is technically overkill, but then I got to thinking about running them at 8-ohms by...

  10. bets are on! inuke 12000. 2 ohm or 4?

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    I hope the iNuke 12000dsp is released this year. It would be best for me if it was 6000 peak at 4 ohm and around 4000 music mrwv (music real world volts). I would like to power 2 big subs, one off each channel. I am loving my 3000dsp after changing the fan. The DSP is very easy to use. I...

  13. Re: RE Audio SR15 Dual 2 ohm

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Re: RE Audio SR15 Dual 2 ohm Hi Guys, Just wondering if anyone has had any dealings with these drivers. I can get them for £94.90 each so probably a discount to be had for 8. I have modelled 8 in a sealed box of 24 cu ft so 6 cu ft for each dual. They come out at 108.5db at 10hz and 121db at...
  14. Behringer A500, can it really do 600W into 8 Ohm bridged?

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    What is the actual RMS I can expect from a bridged A500? I am skeptical of the 600W claim but had any body here ever measured it? I have a spare A500 and I was hoping to use it with CHT 18.1 sub (8 Ohm, 18" driver, sealed ) until I can afford a better amp. Is it worth a try? thank you

    This is my first post on HTS. I will be running the dayton 15" classic 4 ohm driver with the Dayton 240w plate amplifier off the line in from my ep1500. I would prefer a sealed box. I will probably use birch plywood because I hate cutting mdf. The T/S parameters are as follows: Power...
