HI I would just like to know the power output both 8 and 4 ohms. thanks

Without knowing what they're hooked up too.. SOUNDS like your uder powering them, OR over powering them. Look at the back of the speakers the wattage is what your looking for, look at your amp, example: 1000w speaker running on 50w amp = not good.

As they are rated at 115w (4 Ohm), you can use any amp that can take 4 Ohm speakers. Don't connect them to any amp rated 8 Ohm as you could damage the amp, not the speakers. Ideally the power amp should have not greater power output then 115w. But I would stick with Amps rated up to 100w per channel.

The of amp depends on quality verses money you have to spend, but there are plenty of good quality second hand amps that will do them justices. Some hi-fi shops will let you bring in your speakers to try on different amps to get the best sound.

It's the woofer that will use almost all from this 150 W so if you replace woofer take one of 8 ohm which can handle 150 W and you done

The output of a speaker primarily depends on system design (obviously) However, perhaps you have sourced a replacement or 'upgrade' speaker for an existing system. In that case, perhaps you have an impedance mismatch. If your amplifier is designed to drive, say, an 8 ohm speaker, and you connect a speaker of 16 ohms impedance, then your sound will be softer. On the other hand, you may have connected more than one speaker to one power amplifier output. If you connected in series you add the impedances. If connect in parallel you work out the impedance using this formula:

1/Answer= 1/Speaker A impedance + 1/Speaker B impedance + 1/Speaker C impedance etc. So if you connect three speakers in parallel, each of 8 ohm impedance:

1/Answer=1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 = 3/8

3X Answer=8

Answer = 8/3 = a little less than 3 ohms.

Reducing the load like this makes the sound louder, but risks distortion or even damage. Check your manual for amplifier tolerances. Cheers, Don.

All power amplifiers are designed to operate with a maximum current. This is limited by a minimum speaker impedance load. Your amplifier manual will specify the minimum load on output channels. High quality amplifiers can drive speakers with a combined impedance of 2 ohms or less. To calculate your parallel load, as you have requested, use the following formula. 1/Total load = 1/mgongo speaker impedance + 1/HW-E5500 speaker impedance.

Example. If your mgongo speakers have a nominal impedance of 8 ohms and the HW-E550 speakers have a nominal impedance of 8 ohms, then the formula is 1/Answer=1/8 + 1/8

1/Answer = 2/8

1/Answer = 1/4

Answer = 4.

If your amplifier can drive a 4 ohm speaker load without clipping then you are OK.

8 Ohm refers to the nominal impedance of the whole speaker. How would you 'use' 4 or 6 Ohm? Any modern amp should be able to handle 8 Ohm. The M70 have relatively low sensitivity, and require more output-power for high sound-volume.

The entire speaker system is passive. That is, it requires amplification for each channel.

From the manual: "Compatible with A/V receivers rated from 10 to 200 watts per front channel and 10 to 100 watts per rear channel; rated from 4 to 8 ohms".

In general higher speaker impedance is safer than lower impedance for the amp. Don't expect anything impressive re: audio output from a passive (unpowered) sub if your HTS says it pushes only 25 watts. Without frequency bandwidth and distortion noted the spec is virtually useless as a comparison.

The BU-1 is a powered sub that accepts either RCA Line Level or HIGH LEVEL amplifier power. If you use the latter, impedance is a non-issue because the input feeds the BU-1's internal amp, not the speaker directly. You should be okay.

Perhaps if we knew some specifics about the HTS we could do more than guess.

1. It's a passive sub. That means there is no amplifier built into the sub cabinet.2. Those are inductors. They passively filter the highs from the signal going to your sub.

3. It may work with the right adapters from Radio Shack. It would be a cheap experiment. Since the computer sub was 4 ohms and the Panasonic sub is 8 ohms, you are OK. You can always go up in impedance but be careful going lower. That's the quickest way to fry an amp.

Your Panasonic sub has 2 sets of speaker inputs and outputs. My guess is that the driver is a dual voice coil. If it says 8 ohms on the driver, then it is probably 8 ohms per coil. Wire the coils in parallel for a final load of 4 ohms and it will match your computer amp.

Finally, if that doesn't work then you can get an external amp to power the sub. Parts Express carries suitable amps from 25w to 3,000+w. Pick one that fits your budget.

You can plug in higher ohm speakers , the higher the ohm the higher the resistance is, it is a danger when you plug lower ohm speakers into a higer ohm Amp , at a high volume that will cause them to blow , the center speaker would be fine to use a higer ohm speaker , your best choice is to buy a Active Subwoofer, which means the sub has it's own power supply , and u can blast the thing as much as u like , thn u can turn the bass down on all the other speaker's so u can play it louder , and have the sub turned up has high as u like , this is the best way to get great sound with high volume , buy a Active sub woofer , any active subwoofer is ok , a active sub woofer has its own volume and inputs on the speaker ,
