You guys are life savers! I found a volume control knob in the nook area. When I turn it all the way up, the resistance is just 1.2 ohm.

Right. I'm tying them together, so it's double the length.

There is reason to suspect that the actual run is much longer than needed. I've located the place in the attic where the one cable from...

The amp is about 6 years old.

Why ceiling speakers? This is the bedroom, and the speakers were already installed in the house. I don't know what brand or impedance the speakers are. They don't...
