Impedience Mismatch....On Purpose !

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Jammin'John, Feb 26, 2005.

  1. How do you think that this would work.
    Let's say that I have 2 speakers that I want to put in a bass cab.
    I actually want them to both be 16 ohm but that is not the case.
    One speaker.......the one with the most bottom is 8 ohm.
    it is 97 db efficient.
    The other speaker has an extended frequency range.
    it is 100 db efficient
    If I hooked them up in paralell I think that they would be about the same loudness & sound good together !
    What do you think ?

    the amp will see a 5.3 ohm load. Try it and tell what you think.
