Impedance changing

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Reemo_bassist, Feb 2, 2002.


  1. Hey.

    I am wondering does anyone know how to change impedance loads, because I'm building my own speaker cabs and the amp head puts out 100w into 4ohms. I have 8 ohm speakers and if I hook it up to the head it will only give me 50w. Does anyone know how to change the impedance of the speaker?
    (like how to make an impedance matching transformer)

    Putting two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel will give you 4 Ohm.
