4 ohm tweeter design question
So I'm wanting a simple two way design, basically a tweeter that can be crossed over relatively low, then two larger woofers, basically 8 ohm for everything. What I'm running in to is that many of the tweeters I've been looking at is 4 ohm, sometimes less. Dayton Reference and Esoteric for example is 4 ohms I believe.
Problem is, most all of the receivers I've been looking at is designed for 8 ohms. A Marantz rep said if I want to run 4 ohms they wouldn't recommend any of their current receivers, to wait for a new one that is coming out soon. All the pre-built crossovers are designs for 8 ohm as well, which yeah I can build my own in the future but really didn't want to get into that right now.
So, is there something I'm missing or am I going to be forced into finding a different 8 ohm tweeter? Their classic line is 8 ohm but anything nicer is lower, I don't understand it.
