    If they're each 8 ohms, they'll produce an impedance (2.67 ohms) that may be too low for your head to handle. Make sure it goes down to 2 ohms before wiring up.

    Be careful of the impedance. Have a look on the back of each speaker. It will usually say something like "400 watts, 8 ohms". Now have a look at the back of the amp and it will say somehting similar. We're interested in the Ohms.....

    Post all the info here and we'll tell you if it's going to be a problem.
