2 Speakers to 1 Channel - Page 2

post #11 of 15
series would be the safest for the amp, but much quieter output
post #12 of 15
I totally disregarded all logic and went ahead and did this, and I have 2 speakers off each channel (L & R) and a Sub off the right one (for a total of 3 on right) and it works fine.

Ok so I've gathered that 3.43 Ohm total is too low for my amp.

I've come up with a very ghetto way (hopefully correct) around this.

So since Impedance is just another term for Resistance, I assume I can just add resistors to the speaker connections, like so:



Because my amp is rated at 6 Ohm and the total without the resistors is 3.43 Ohm, I'll be looking at adding another 3 Ohm of resistance.

My question, if this will work at all, is: Do I split 3 Ohm across the two resistors in the above image (ie 1.5 Ohm each resistor)? Or do I use two 3 Ohm resistors?

since the amp is 7w rms, youll need 2x 4+w 3 ohm resistors
one for each channel

another amp would still be best

Ok well, I gave up on connecting it in parallel.. too much hassle.

Connected them in series and just cranked the volume up a bit more. Perfect!

Will just leave it as is until I upgrade

Thanks for the help people!
