I have a driver and enclosure from an Energy Microstar subwoofer that I like to re-use with a new amp. Physical appearance of the driver looks good, but when I measure the resistance, it measure 17 ohms. I was expecting something in the 4 ohm range. Is this an indication that the driver is bad or some other problem? I was hoping the be able to use something like an OAudio amp, Apex "senior" amp or a BASH amp.
Thanks,
Rob

I wouldn't go replacing amps unless your amp is damaged. The engineer put the appropriate amp in the sub already.

If you want a Diy sub. You can buy a P-E box and mount a driver and amp in one of those.

You can't just swap drivers or amps and expect positive results.
