    I have a pair of hand built speakers in a 2 channel setup with a NAD integrated amp. The speakers are 4 ohm, 87db sensitivity and are rated to handle between 50 and 100 watts. I am looking to upgrade the system (ditch the amp) as I need to incorporate network streaming, handling video sources...

    Hi everyone, Firstly thanks heaps for the forum! Have got a lot of good info out already. I purchased a pair of second hand PA 3-way top bins (Mackie sa1232) in which it has be come apparent that the LF drivers - a pair of 12" - have been replaced with drivers of the wrong impedance. (A host...

    Hello guys, I'm designing my own speakers for my home. I've chosen the following drivers and crossover: Hertz 1650.3. Both the tweeter and woofer are rated at 4 ohms each. I plan to pair them with my Denon pma600ne which supports 4 ohm speakers. Because these speakers are normally meant to be...

    I have a multi-part question that I am sure someone can answer and it is driving me nuts. I am building my own F L & C speakers utilizing the Tang Band W8-2314 8" Coaxial Full-Range Woofer, using a 2.5khz x-over. This is a 4 ohm speaker only rated at 50w RMS and 100w max. I plan on building the...

    My floor speakers each have 2 sets of terminals, one for the mids and one for the hi's and I have jumper cable connecting the positive to positive and negative to negative. My question is how does this affect the total net impedance of the speaker? My speakers are spec'd at 8 ohms. Will using...

    Hi, For many amplifiers the power output does not double when the loudspeaker impedance is halved (at least not down to 2 Ohms or so). Ideally an amplifier that has 100 W at 8 Ohm should have 200 W at 4 Ohm. But many do not, and only have e.g. 150 W at 4 Ohm. Now what I wonder is whether that...

    I have a mono home intercom / music system and need to add a speaker in a location that is not served. Each existing speaker is wired directly to the main unit, which includes the audio amp. There are instructions not to connect a new speaker to an existing speaker, but to wire it all the way...

    I have an old Sony Compact Disk Deck Receiver(SONY HCD-H550K). According to its amplifier spec, it produces 30+30w output per channel, a peak of 300 watts with speaker output impedance from 6-16ohms and its speakers spec only states its impedance which is at 6ohms(no wattage and other info). I...
