Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
Just bought speakers that are 6 ohm but my amp only supports 8 or 16 ohm, is this going to give me any problems/damage.
What are the issues??
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.
