Each speaker would still be rated at 40W, 80W for the pair.Hi all! I thought I would ask for some help on this possibly obvious answer to some but I am not completely sure about.
Here goes- I have 2 x 4 ohm speakers rated at 40w RMS. If I wore them in series I get an 8ohm load. Does this ALSO mean that the RMS for each speaker now changes from 40watts to somewhere around 20watts per speaker? Or does the speaker still handle 40 watts regardless of ohms?
Is it just the amount of watts the amplifier puts out that changes?
Thanks for the help/clarification!
The amplifier voltage would have to double to get there.
