Question about Fender Passport Deluxe 500watt Sound System with Deluxe Speaker Array
We want to add extra speakers to this system. The original speakers are 8 OHM each.The additional speakers would also be 8 OHM and wired in parallel so the system would see a 4 OHM load. Is this OK? We could wire in series and make it a 16 OHM load (a bit more difficult, but possible.) Thanks in advance for your help.
If you add 8 ohm speakers in parallel then you would be running the amps into a 4 ohm load ...which will overheat and possibly damage them ...... if you wire series then the amps would be loaded to 16 ohms ...which would be ok ..but you will only develop 70 % of the total output power
IE a 100watt would be down to 70 watts
much better to add some seperate powered speakers
