Speaker has 4 ohm tweeter, 8 ohm mid-woofer, how much ohm should receiver have ?

Discussion in 'Audio Equipment' started by Skybuck Flying, Aug 12, 2009.

  1. Hello,

    Suppose a speaker has the following specifications:

    (input resistance:)
    8 ohm mid-woofer + 4 ohm tweeter + crossover board.

    The receiver has 6 ohm and 8 ohm.

    Is this a good match ? or will the receiver be damaged by the 4 ohm tweeter
    ?

    Please advice.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

    Test it out. Afterwords you can lawsuit the manufacturer because he does not
    specified this in the manual.
    That what you always want to do.


    Please.... Don't feed this TROLL (his spam will never end)

  3. The receiver will have 6 year warranty, so if it dies before that then it
    should not be my problem anyway...

    Just trying to save the world from destruction ! ;) :)

    I am looking at the denon avr 1709 receiver.

    I don't think it has multiple ohm taps...

    But it might have a switch to put it in 6 ohms or 8 ohms...

    Or maybe it's automatic ? (But I don't think so...)

    Anyway satelites with two speakers in them with different ohm ratings... is
    that kinda weird ?

    Hmm...

    If I put it in 6 ohms if possible how would that affect the 8 ohms
    speaker... hmm...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

    Put your dick in a mid-woofer that's my advice.
