Well here is the truth about my towers which I called "The Bad Boys" (changed out the dual 8" woofers for treated aluminum "sub"woofers in my WTMW design, didn't need to tweak the Xover because in my excitement to hear the new drivers I just slapped them in and they sounded great especially in the lower end, they are now known as "The Hench Men", stay tuned for "Shorty", a dual 8" sub to be used with some bookshelf Speakers in an adjacent room and maybe even compliment the main system just for the fun of it). Any ways the system is a 4 Ohm system and the receiver is a Pioneer, so therefore to get an 8 Ohm Impedance, without compromising the design (if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it). I did the unthinkable of running 2 8 Ohm resistors in parallel, then in parallel with the towers. Yeah I know a mad Scientist at work. Recently I became a little concerned without any event about the effects of this on the receiver and wanted to know what other options I have beyond just adding another 4 Ohm mid woofer (it will end up probably being a car audio driver because I can't get home audio drivers at that impedance) and for me possibly spoiling a good thing ?
