Sorry, but there is really no amplifier on the market with 8 ohms output impedance. The output impedance of a power amplifier is always less than 0.5 ohms. We use no impe…dance matching. We use voltage bridging. Scroll down to related links and look at "Interconnection of two audio units - Power amplifier and passive loudspeaker".(MORE)
A speaker is design to deliver sound. An amplifier is a power source for your speakers or subwoofers. It needs power to operate. Then, it now needs data. The incoming data i…s transferred from your audio unit to your amplifier. Then, the power and data is then transferred to your speakers so they can work.(MORE)
Short Answer: Try to get speakers with an RMS wattage rating roughly equal to the RMS wattage rating of the amplifier (per channel). Further Information: If you amplifie…r puts out 75 W RMS per channel, get a speaker that can handle 75 W RMS. If you get a speaker that handles 150 W RMS per channel, you will find that the amplifier doesn't have the power to make it sound as good as it could / should. Also, lower frequencies (where the amplifiers wattage rating is put to test) could burn out your amplifier. The opposite is also true. If the speaker can only handle 25 W RMS and you hook it up to a 100W RMS amp the amp might send so much current through the speaker coil that the coil wires heat up, burn off their coating and short together. This, in my opinion, is much less likely to happen though. NOTE: An amplifier doesn't put out its rated wattage all the time. The amount of wattage dissipated by the speaker varies directly and greatly with the music. A flute solo for instance being played with a huge 1000 W RMS amplifier might just put out 20 W RMS during the solo. But when the big organ kicks in jumps to over 900 W RMS.(MORE)
Yes, they will. One can connect anything to anything else. Will it work? If so, how well? Is it safe? If the four speakers are connected in series, the total imped…ance of the speakers will be the sum of all the impedances of the speakers:.
5.5 + 5.5 + 5.5 + 5.5 = 22 ohms.
The 22 ohm load on the amplifier will be a bit higher than the amp has been designed for, but the setup will work. At modest power levels it is doubtful that anything audible will be noticeable because of that slight mismatch, and as long as one doesn't crank it up too high, the amp won't notice the difference. It would be wise when hooking up the speakers to insure they are all hooked up in phase....
Something important has to be added: .
There is really no 16 ohm amplifier on the market..
The amplifier will have an output impedance of around 0.08 ohms. In hi-fi we have always impedance bridging..
It's a myth. There is really no 4 Ohm amplifier on the market. And there never was. The amplifier will have an output impedance of around 0.04 ohms. In hi-fi we h…ave always impedance bridging. Zout (MORE)
The only way to connect a 300W amplier to a 60W amplifier is in series. You would also need to carefully balance the inputs so that the two amplifiers would do exactly their a…ssigned workload. Its not a good idea, however, because the distrortion from the 300W amp would likely overwhelm the capacity from the 60W unit. Besides, 60W is less than -6db difference from 300W. The human ear can only resolve differences of only +/- 3 db, so just ignire the 60W and go with the 300W. Any thing else is likely to wind up being the "distorted" noise that irritates us peace seakers.(MORE)
Safe, as in you're not going to electrocute yourself, yes. But, the amp will be able to put out more power than the speakers can handle, so don't turn the volume up all the …way or you will fry the speakers.(MORE)
Amplifiers are rated to operate within a range of impedances. Typically, a domestic amplifier will drive a minimum impedance of 8 Ohms or 4 Ohms. Using speakers that have an i…mpedance lower than the amplifier rating is likely to increase distortion and can damage the outputs of the amplifier if the levels are too high. Using speakers that are significantly higher than the minimum rating will not cause damage to either the amplifier or speakers but it will reduce the power that is delivered to the speakers. In most domestic systems, this limitation of the power output is not likely to be an issue. Any amplifier rated to drive into 4 Ohms will work well with speakers of between 4 and 8 Ohms. An amplifier with an 8 Ohm rating should be used only with speakers of 8 Ohms or higher. (MORE)
