SOURCE: 6 ohm speakers - 8 ohm amp

This is a tough one due to the info at hand, but I'll take a stab at it.
I'll assume that your amp is not a tube-type amp. I'll also assume it is a relatively recent "solid state" design. If those assumptions are correct, connecting a 6 ohm load to an 8 ohm amp should not cause significant overheating or amplifier instability.

SOURCE: Hello, I have inherited a McIntosh MC-7270 amp,

Well what you are dealing with is a HI-FI tube amplifier. The reason it has COM, 1, 2, 4 and 8 are because it does not have a transistor driven output. It has a transformer coupled output. The 1,2,4,and 8 are the different taps of the transformer in order to impedance match your load (speaker) with the tube power section. This amp is 270 per channel and your speakers are only suggested to 120Watts. You would use the Negative to the common terminal and the plus to your 8 ohm terminal on the Amp. This is a great amp, you should keep this and not sell it.

How to hook speakers up to a realistic mpa-40


The MPA-40 is a mono public address amp. So it has one speaker output. You select the appropriate socket to suite the speaker type. The 4/8/16 Ohm outs are for various tpyes of Hi-Fi speaker. The 70 Volt is used for muzak in shopping centres, restaurants, and waiting rooms.


6ad81917-fff2-4f53-bd63-2509e567dc5a.jpg

If you have a pair of 8 ohm Hi-Fi speakers, you can diasy chain the connections and then use the Com and the 16 Ohm connection.

Daisy chain means you take the wires from a pair of speakers. Connect together the wires going to red on one speaker and black on the other. This now leaves you with two wires going to the other red and black terminals on the speakers, but the ends in your hand are not connected to anything yet. Plug the black in to COM. Plug the red in to 16 Ohm.

The sound from the speakers won't be stereo. It will be mono because that's all the amp outputs. But both speakers will work so long as they're functioning units.

If you have two 4 Ohm home theater speakers then you can do the same trick. 4 + 4 makes an 8 Ohm load. Connect the red to the 8 Ohm output.

Don't be tempted to try to connect to multiple terminals. The amp isn't powerful enough to to run more that one speaker chain.

Hope this helps

Konzert amplifier av 302 can i use 4pcs of 200watts speaker in that amp


It depends on the impedance of the speakers, if you use (2) 8 ohms speaker on each channel the load will be 4 ohms if you use (2) 4 ohms the load will be 2 ohms , check and see what load the amp can handle.

How to equalize extra speakers?


The only thing you can do to equalize those speakers. Make sure that you have them in faze. + to + and - to - and left to left and right to right. Make sure that your speaker can handle the ohms. (the same ohms) for example If your amp is rated to handle 8 ohms then your speakers should have 8 ohms. The speaker wattage should also be abit more than what your amp can produce. Distortion is your worst killer of speakers.

I have 2 4 ohm 12" audiobahn jw1251j and a 1500 watt mono planet audio amp. what ohm do i wire the subs to the amp


depends how low your amps impedance goes down, if it can handle 2 ohm then you have to connect your speakers parallel to it (both speaker plus to amps plus and both speakers minus to amps minus) this will result in 2ohm speakers. if your amp does 4 ohm then use either one speaker for 4 ohm or two speakers in serial connection (in row) but you will have then 8 ohms.

to wire up your sub in mono bridged mode it's either L+ and R- or L- and R+ it should say this on the body of the amp in front of the speaker terminals. If it does'nt i would check to see if your amp is bridgeable if it is not i would advise against it as this could damage the amp.Hope this is helpful

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers


Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.
