Question about Boston Acoustics Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I need to find out what is the impedance for my 10 inch driver/ speakers on my VR970 boston acoustic tower speakers. Is there a way I can find the impedance of these 10 inch drivers?

I have Boston Acoustics Tower Speakers - VR970 which is the 3-way, powered floor standing loudspeaker with system-specific crossover and a 125-watt integrated amplifier with 10" powered subwoofer.but not manufactured any more unfortunately. Unfortunately due to moisture setting in the driver/ speaker has been destroyed. I ned to buy new drivers, but do not know if the IMPEDANCE of the speaker is 4 Ohms or 8 Ohms.... is there any way I can get that information? Please Help

Try installing an old creative driver for digital audio but use system restore to take a backup of your settings first. Also, you may have to update the bios and unselect the AUTO mode for sound.

SOURCE: 250W, 8 Ohms speakers on 150W, 6-16 Ohms Amplifier.. What is the effect of this?

If your amp states that it will support a range of 6 - 16 ohms, an 8 Ohm speaker will work fine on it. If the speakers you hook up to it are lower than 6 ohms, it may work until you turn it up, then it will either shut down or burn out the finals. If you hook up a speaker that has a higher than 16 ohm, it will not get very loud, and it shouldn't hurt the amp.

SOURCE: what is the impedance of the JAMO A3SUB.3 speaker?

22K is the impedance listed in the specs but you may have to look on the actual speaker itself to get the impedance of the physical speaker.

SOURCE: On back panel impedance for 2 speakers is 4-16 ohms. I run a pair of 6 ohm speakers with receiver and this is find. I want to connect 4 speakers all 6 ohms impedance and need to know if this is safe f

Stephen, it may depend on how the system is protected, but generally the protection is designed to prevent the transistors from overcurrent. This would happen if you turn the volume up too high. If your receiver is newer--say built after 2005 or so, it will likely protect itself. You can hook up your speakers and see if it works. It will likely trip the internal protection at high volume, depending on the amplitude of the music signal. My main warning would be to not run the volume high for long periods and make sure there is nothing blocking the cooling vents on the unit.

Boston Acoustics CS26 Speakers sound cuts out for over a second at higher volumes tested using two different amplifiers same problem. Does not seem to be related to amp distortion:clipping protectio

It sounds like the speaker cones(if that is what they have) get hung up against the back of the case. No vibration=no sound. Check to see that there is no hum adding to the pressure on the speakers. Check to see that the speakers are hooked to the correct impedence output of the amplifier. Also, wire length affects impedence and shortening the wires might help.

Drivers Boston acoustics

Looking up these speakers, it appears that they connect via a 3.5mm headphone jack. This type of interface does not require a hardware driver. Instead you need the driver for your sound card, download the driver from the website hosted by the manufacturer of your computer.

My speaker set up boston acoustics ba7500 will'nt

The Guys at Boston Acoustics helped me get my speakers to work. The Boston BA7500 speakers are coaxial digital speakers so you need a digital output on your sound card. Analog will NOT work. My new HP Pavilion has a Realtek sound card with a digitial RCA plug output. I had to go to Amazon and get a male RCA to 1/8" Stereo Mini Female adapter plug. I just pluged it in and configured my sound card to 16 bit 48 khz output to the RCA output and everything works great. The speakers sound better then ever, great for 10 year old speakers! They sound better then anything I have seen avalable today. The guys at Boston were the only guys that helped with getting this to work! Thanks again to them and Amazon has every type of adapter plug you may need. Good luck.
