This will not affect your speakers. It will affect your amplifier: Not in a bad way, if it's a relatively new one. 16 Ohms just means a bigger load, which means they will need more output (crank the volume knob...) to give the same volume as would an 8 Ohm speaker system. Lower impedance systems than the minimal ones indicated on your amp can harm it, if it has no thermal safety. I blew up a vintage akai this way. Also a lot depends on the sensitivity of the speakers. This is indicated in dB/W. The higher, the more volume it gives. Consumer speakers range around 90 dB/W. Be careful with high-sensitivity (92 or more) in combination with older and/or less powerfull (40W/channel) amplifiers.

It will not be as loud and you will have to turn up the volume.

I need to wire 2 12" DVC Lanzar MAXP124D to an 8 ohm load. Had it wired at a 2 ohm setting and it would over heat my amp. So tried to wire it to 8 and it wouldn't work. Need help.Thanks.


Your 8ohm channel is fried why happened was you ran 2 12s in an 8ohm load and turned it down to 2ohms the speakers was pulling all the power and that made it over heat and when it over heated it fried you're amp. It ain't no good you can't fix that

I have a Crate V16 -15 watt Amp w/12"-16 ohm speaker. Can I use a 8ohm speaker instead ?? Thanks


According to the manual, it needs a 16 ohm minimum load, so no, you best not use an 8 ohm speaker.

I have a fender frontman 65r with a 8ohm speaker can i add another 8ohm speaker to this


http://cie-wc.edu/Series_Parallel_9_14.pdf
Not recommended.
you could add 3 more 8 ohm speakers in series / parallel wiring and keep an 8 ohm load to the amp, or
2x 4 ohm speakers in series, or
2x 16 ohm speakers in parallel

I have a guitar head stack with 2 8Ohm outputs and a 2x12 orange ppc212 slant with 16Ohm impendance. How to link by 8Ohm the two parts?


As long as the impedance of the speakers do NOT go below the rating of the amp you can connect them without worry Your amp would drive two 8 ohm speakers. Using the 16 ohm speaker it will only draw half the current and only accept half the power that one of the 8 ohm outputs can deliver.

I had my TSL100 head running 16ohms out into the 8ohm input of my 1960 slant cab. I had sound for a while then it went out completely. I hooked it up right the next day (16ohm out to the 16ohm input) and...


The transformer is NOT likely to be damaged by what you did. The output tubes would have had a lower impedance presented to them and I suspect they may have got gassy or degraded the cathodes. Those SHOULD have been the first thing to check and change.

What you heard about the fuse blowing if tubes go is NOT always correct. If a tube shorts the fuse may go or if it becomes so gassy that it breaks down and shorts the fuse MAY go.

You will not sense as much power when connected right at the 16 ohms as you did on 8... in fact on 8 ohms the amp would probably try to deliver 50% more. If it could it would be double, but due to overloading 50% is reasonable.

ONLY the output tubes are involved here.

After playing for a while my Sony Surround Amp cuts off and shows a PROTECT Reading in the window.


Sounds like the amp is protecting itself from an over-current situation.
This happens when the machine has to try too hard to get sound out to the speakers.
There are several possible reasons.
You may be using the wrong impedance speakers for the amp.
-some amps only work with 8ohm speakers
-some only work with 4ohm speakers
If you have a short circuit in the speakers or in the speaker wiring, that could cause the amp to overwork and go into protection.
If you connect up multiple speakers to the same single output of the amp you effectively short out the amp and cause it to overwork also.
Before troubleshooting, blow out the amp, dust inside can cause lots of problems with the electrical systems. Use canned air and do it outside with fresh air.
To troubleshoot :
1. check to see that the amp and the speaker have the same impedance number, either 4 or 8ohm. This is usually printed on the back of both. If they do match go to step two.

2-unplug all the speakers, add one speaker(left one) and test it for awhile to see if it goes into a protection mode. Next move that same speaker to the right side output and run it for awhile to see if it goes into protection mode. Repeat the test with your other speaker, moving it to both outputs(L&R) to check if it works. If the amp fails with either speaker on either output, you may have a mismatch of speaker and amp or a bad amp. If you have only one speaker that causes a protection, then you have a bad speaker or it's wire. If both speakers go into protection, get different speakers and test again. if it works for all of these tests, go to step three.

3.hook up both the left and the right speakers to the amp. be sure that the wires are stripped cleanly and twisted tightly, if you have screw on outputs that is. Test for proper operation. At this point you should know if there is a single speaker causing the protection or if it is a amp malfunction.

My speaker just rip.. i like to know any subwoofer is ok for replace??


it's an 8 ohm driver. It need to be VERY efficient, around 90-91db @ 1w. Measure the enclosure size LxWxH then divide by 1728. That will give you your cu. ft. internal airspace of the box. Then look for a driver that will effectively work in that space. Shouldn't be too expensive, paper cone, foam surround, 8ohm impedance. Hope this helps

you got to stating your processor, the amp, the preamp, the speakers type you own.  Without that, its hard to inform accuracy info for your request.

Center speaker hookup to a MARANTZ mdl 2238


Hi tliguyanadig

You can hook up the speaker "between" left and right outputs. Just connect the center speaker between left +ve and right +ve outputs respectively. It will give a spacial effect that some like and some dont:) Try it and see for yourself. Your marantz amp will handle the load OK. It is rated 38 watts into 8 ohms, but there is not alot of load presented by this sort of setup. Let me know what you think.
