If a speaker is stated to have 8 Ohms - is this really measurable with a good Ohm meter? Is there a corollary to STATED Ohms verses ACTUAL Ohms readings? ie: 16 Ohms STATED = X Ohms via a meter? It may be a loaded question concerning working resistance or a peak capacity at X Hz and power settings, and allowing for hysteresis, induction and standing waves, etc., and I quite understand parallel and series Ohms values, but this is leaving me in the dark a little. Bottom line - I don't want to call down Armageddon upon my PA amp and fry it. So far I've gotten away with it but-there's-always-that-niggling-doubt in the back of my mind. And ya know - I've asked a LOT of questions on this and other TB arenas, and made numerous posts trying to fill in for my over 40 years of not playing and the aspect of new amps, guitars and effects and such, but I find that in 99.99% of the questions I ask, I have gotten really fine answers and am extremely thankful for the intelligent and understandable returns by the talented people here. Thanks a lot! It helps in ways you may never know.
