Ohms law right, got it, understand that, and I thank you guys for the input....
...but its just odd how some MFG's make it sound like you must have high current to drive speakers which of course for any given resistance and current there must be a certain voltage to complete the equation (ohms law) and if you think about it in terms of High current naturally you think large transformer (heavy iron) to produce high current while at the same time when you think high voltage you don't necessarily think of it the same way since you can put thousands of volts in a small conductor, but you cannot do that with high current. Passing thousand of volts into a small conductor must have minimal current in the milliamps related to the resistance of the conductor.
So... I always thought the current was the main force driving the speaker (understanding ohms law and the association between E, I, R) and naturally associated high current to heavy iron (the comment about welding transformers in earlier post by forum member) and because of that when I see and hear of an amplifier weighing only a few pounds and boasting lots of watts I just looked at it as smoke and mirrors but now I understand that the current is really not as continuous or high as it would be say when you are welding.
Its just an example of how I got duped by advertisements from MFG's but the other factor is my history with tube amps where heavy Iron usually equates to quality....
...any way's, not to belabor the point but just wanted to clarify and thought it interesting how sometimes we (myself) can be persuaded by advertising. I thought I was above that lol
Speaker wire is another example, does it have to carry the 35amps or do we only worry about the 141 volts...if its 35 amps then using heavy guage speaker wire is an overkill. After all it is AC current not DC right?
or is it?
But....I see the light!! Edited by 316 - 12/14/13 at 7:45pm
